Whatever else, please stop doing that. Creating items and then throwing them away just produces meaningless waste in the world, and the environment has enough problems as it is. It is far, far more upsetting to me that you would order my products just to put them into a landfill than that you would simply not buy them at all. I would rather have less money than I would be responsible for that. It literally goes against everything I personally believe.

I will consider it a boon to know that I'm not contributing to more garbage.
