That's fine if you buy -- but it just helps enable them.
I'd love to see these guys lose a crap load of money. I'd rather make my own local burn with that extra $600... or even donate to a project on the playa that I'll never see.
Folks, this dream of "I'd love to see the scalpers lose money" just ain't gonna happen unless the BLM allows the ORG another 10k in occupancy in the last minute. Last year after the sellout I gifted two tickets to strangers. I can tell you from that experience it's incredibly easy to make money on them. Within 15 min.of posting I had offers for >$500 EACH for the tix. I had a handful of offers for up to $800 for a single one. The money is there and it's crazy for very little effort.
