Internet taxes

What is everyone's take on Internet Taxes and sites that sell rackets at
pretty low prices, but don't offer the services of a proshop.

I have been told (and believe it) that the rating process in the
northeast (NH specifically) has been very lenient during the past 10
years or so. I was rated 3.5 approximately 7 years ago. I played in
Arizona last summer for two months, and realized the difference in
ratings. I played in a 3.5 group that played like 4.0 players in NH.
The person that rated me, and hundreds of others, has since left the
area. According to the professionals in my area, that person
"overrated" everyone that played at 'his' club.
since I play with a 4.0 group, I wanted to be rated again. I was rated
by the pro that I take lessons from, and he told me that even though I
play with the 4.0 players, I am a 3.5, and that these 4.0 players are
really only 3.5 players. This has created problems for me, since the
rules of the club that I play at in the summer say that 'you can only
play in the level that you are rated at'. So, I cannot play with the
4.0 groups, which some of the ladies that I play with in the winter are
playing in at the same outdoor club. The club is very strick about the
rule due to the long time members that inforce this rule. What would
you do about this problem? It is very frustrating to play down to
another level, and I do not want to be in this position next summer.
Please respond. Thank you.
