Ellora's Cave - what on earth?

Hmm, reading about Ellora's Cave's recent courtroom blues, I realize that I have not bought anything from there in a long time. It looks like I'm not the only only one who feels this way if those anecdotal claims that sales are down all across the board are true. At any rate, curiosity compels me to visit Ellora's Cave to see whether anything interesting is available there on sale.

Instead, I find that they have this strange new pricing thing going on. For example, on this page, the list price for an ebook is $11.90. Yes, $11.90 for an ebook. But they are offering me at a special cover price of only $5.95. Gee, don't I feel privileged?

Oh, who are they kidding? It's $5.95 all along, right? Why pretend to make me feel special by artificially bloating the "list price" to double that of the cost they intended to charge all along?

Am I missing something here?
