yeah i know legally I'm in the clear. I was more just thinking it might be an a-hole move on my part - like i was taking advantage in order to undercut the other guy, even if that wasn't my intent.

i think after the responses here in their totality, I'm no longer worried about that. It was never about whether i had the right to do it though, or at least, that's not why i asked the question, if that makes sense.

best regards.

edit: woo, a local. I'm a seattle transplant. I moved about an hour north from there several years ago, but lived there for most of my adult life.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
