Still waiting to hear why that wouldn't work.
Well, here's the official reason:

A: It has been our experience that a great many tickets are purchased for giving away, ensuring a project has coverage, or selling later to a friend in need. The administrative cost of changing the name on every ticket that ever changes hands exceeds our capacity. And frankly, many of your fellow BRC citizens are uncomfortable with the notion of showing ID just to enter the event (nor suffering through even longer wait times at the Gate). While we know some events use non-transferable tickets, we're not convinced it works for our community. We’re counting on everyone playing fairly so we don’t have to go to an "ID-specific" process for ticket sales and event entry.
The two reasons I colored pretty much sum up a huge part of the reasons against (also remember- you're asking to add layers of bureaucracy to fight a problem that is minor at best)
And this thread
has some more "valid reasons" why not (just because people don't want to hear them doesn't make them less valid)
I have yet to see anyone clamoring for non-transferable tickets come up with a good reason that the event actually needs them
- lots of panic-induced desire for them, no "valid reason" why they should be implemented. It's like finding a solution to a problem that doesn't exist.
