Re: Why Are We Compelled to Cast Blame…

Great post.

And yes, when you write "TLDR" you forfeit any right to a meaningful opinion on the subject as you have already admitted you don't know what you're talking about.

Re: Not enough space on the playa.... really?!

the other half of the equation is still the actual playa and the (perceived) environmental impact that tens of thousands of people have on an ecosystem. Assuming that the BLM would take the road widening into consideration, there is still a set number that the event cannot and would not be allowed ...

Re: BM 2012 Tic's on Ebay

But wait, tickets appear to be selling for $1000 or more... That's because they are scarce. The market price would be on 35,000 tickets and as such would not be anywhere near the scarce price. In fact, the market price could easily have been under $390 because it's entirely possible there are not a...

Re: BM 2012 Tic's on Ebay

Well, I would have to think on that for awhile, but you're talking about a more nuanced process to deal with the problem of scalping writ large. I'm suggesting ways to help mitigate the scalping, and reduce the amount of time in which it is even possible, with minimal impact to the current system as...

Re: BM 2012 Tic's on Ebay

eBay does not allow the sale of tickets that are not actually in hand, so auctions for tickets there are being removed quickly. Once tickets are actually distributed I believe you will see them on eBay. eBay terms say you have to apply with local laws -- 11 states and various other regions prohibit...

Re: ticket situation

The monied gamers are happy with the ticket situation, they gamed the lottery afterall, so what do they care? So is the BLM (although they'd probably enjoy money from adding a few thousand more "emnergency" tickets for the extra $'s they'd collect). Not that I think the BLM really cares one way or ...

Re: BMORG: The first scalpers.

FAIL. Selling tickets to an event that you host at a value you determine is not scalping. Scalping: to resell (tickets, merchandise, etc.) at higher than the official rates. The LLC is the seller, not a reseller and they set the official rate, therefore they cannot, by definition, fit the descriptio...
