It's been about 4 months since eBay removed listings for collectable beer bottles that still contained beer and although there are still some listings there and other places (Craigslist, etc) that go under the radar basically selling beer between third parties is gone. At the time, there were a lot of heated threads about whether eBay sales being terrible for the BA community or not. So 4 months later, has it really made any difference? Are releases less crazy, is there less muling, less bad behavior? For my part I haven't really noticed it, but I don't go to a lot of releases. Would we be better off if there was a legal alternative to buying from a brewery or through the distribution channel?
