Agree with Mike that internet sales seem to have made dealing with "dealers" much more tolerable than it was twenty to thirty years ago. I wonder if that is due to people generally feeling less anxious and/or suspicious in an electronic transaction, as opposed to face-to-face. Either party can take their time, study the merchandise and make an informed judgement more easily in the former situation than the latter. On the other hand, I admit to a few guilty memories of buying stuff at card shows back in the early '80's, where a dealer or two may have taken a snack or smoke break, leaving his sig-other to watch the goods, and that person, due to ignorance or indifference, gave me a great deal on merchandise that I wasn't expecting. But, overall, I believe dealing has been greatly enhanced by advances in technology.
