you have every right to spray all of his toilet paper with itching powder and shit in his jar of Nutella.

You're right on the first half and wrong on the second half. He has the right to sell the tickets at any price he wants. The OP doesn't have the right to retaliate in illegal and dangerous ways. Perhaps you were just trying to be funny, but it's weird after the first part of your post which was legit. You're probably sending mixed messages.

What about sucking it up and realizing that you took on risk and now there are costs associated with it and pasing along the resource without relyign on the highest bid to set value? That would be a "less commodified" approach ... and one unlikely to happen cause the Elvis has left the desert.

Did JRS say that tech companies are using BM as an "annual retreat"? I knew this was a shark jumpy moment, but the scale of the jump is larger than previously thought.

I would say,

"That's pretty bogus, but do whatever the hell you want".

And leave it at that.

But yes, i would definitely call them on it..

Opinion: Real friends should be able to sit real friends down and say "Hey, you're being an asshole and this is why". Real friends should take it seriously when when a real friend says "you're being an asshole" and think for a moment on their actions and motivations. People who scalp BM tickets are assholes.
