When did Reverb begin hiding their shipping prices? (Update: My mistake)

UPDATE: I was wrong, I wasn't logged in and this is the behavior in that case. It makes sense now -- they don't list shipping when they don't know the viewer's location.

Original post:
I don't know when this happened but I just noticed that Reverb no longer lists shipping prices in search results, nor even on listings. You have to add things to your cart and then begin the checkout process before you can find out what the shipped price on an item will be. This makes it really slow to comparison-shop. How is this better for anyone?

They (Reverb) don't ship anything, it's an equipment sale posting service for private sellers who usually set fixed rate shipping so there is no need to know the zip code.

And I logged on to Reverb and see shipping prices on all the items. Do you need to be logged in as a user before you see the prices?

Ah! Turns out I'm an idiot. It's just that I wasn't logged in. I feel like Rosanne Rosanadanna -- err Never mind! (updating original post)
