Its rather entertaining to see how many people out there attempt to justify selling an overpriced ticket by stating how they purchased it from a scalper themselves so their just recouping what they paid. News flash: YOUR the problem. If you didn't buy that ticket in the first place, the scalper would now be lowering their price to fit in line with the market, you wouldn't now be the (extremely) lame person trying to sell a ticket for over face value, and prices would be dropping even faster since scalpers wouldn't have been rewarded with a nice $800 paycheck for one ticket. Lessons for next year, hopefully?

Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

You actually believe those who did not buy a ticket before July next are the same people who procrastinated this year? Give your head a fucking shake!

Charging over face value is charging over face value, it really doesn't matter why (as far as I'm concerned). Legal and allowed on ePlaya, but not as cool as charging no more than face value of the ticket plus shipping. Bought a ticket from a scalper that you didn't need? Your own fault, paying the stupid tax when you didn't need to.
