    I recently saw earlier today that TRUNKS24410 was being Bitched at for scalping. I know it was wrong of him, but listen he just thought that he could make some profit off the MP Thundercrackers. It Is peoples right to buy a bunch up and resale. Trust me I run a buisness locally doing it. Scalpers Should not be critized on the boards, Its not your place to tell them their doing wrong.Nexxt time something like that happens If you want to buy 1 great, But if you DONT then Dont say anything. He was a new board member and we should not treat other members that way (Especially new board Members). If you want to act like 5 year olds so be it. Just dont act like one on the site.
    Golden Rule
    Treat Others as you want them to treat you

    Take your own advice and stop making things impossible to find, asking your fellow collectors for ransom money, and pretending to be a victim when you inevitably piss them off.

    It's your right, yeah, but it doesn't make you any less of an ass for doing it.

    So you can take your speech and just.. shove it somewhere uncomfortable. 8|

    I do. That's why I don't buy out the store's entire stock of hard-to-find Transformers in the name of gouging my fellow collectors. Very impressive torpedoing of your own argument, though, well played.

    "Hello pot, this is Kettle."
    "Good day kettle, how are you?"
    "Fine thank you, I just wanted to state that you are black."
    "Well I'd just like to state I've been f*****g your wife."

    But yeah there's making a few dollars more and then there's charging an insane price, especially based on the fact the item they're after is already difficult as hell to get thanks to distributor exclusivity. So just how much of a profit was he trying to make off these Thundercrackers, anyway?

    EDIT: Yeah 27 clams was a bit much to ask, though it could've been much worse I imagine.

    Great a fight. Just what I needed to go to bed on. Well. I'm just going to sit back and watch this spiral into chaos.

    With the giant colored text and the declaration that "It Is peoples right to buy a bunch up and resale," I'm thinking that this thread is satire. This man is clearly going after scalpers by highlighting how ridiculous their actions and the defense of them are.

    He's going Colbert on the scalper.
