    The sense of entitlement on display in this thread is staggering.

    Also, all of you complaining about scalpers, do you really think that the scalpers are making that much of a difference? There are less than 35 auctions on ebay right now. With thousands of people trying to get tickets, how much difference would it really have made to have these ~70 tickets still for sale?

    Hey! Mead is great stuff. I'm liking mead a whole lot better these days- at least I can get it.

    I thought those were the temp tickets last year... I had a lot to drink so maybe I'm mis-remembering, but didn't we get the golden tickets by mail? Or was that XV? Man, it's all a blur. :)

    Those auctions represent people who have extra tickets, and are selling those extra tickets. I'm not sure about the figure of ~70 tickets being scalped in total, but I'm sure there are 70 people on BA that would have appreciated getting the tickets more than the scalpers will make on them.

    With that said, I'll have extras after I figure out how to recreate the hologram.

    Yeah, ultimately there are probably more than 70 tickets being scalped in total. People on BA can still get them; they just have to pay a bit extra. Either way, there will always be a bunch of people who won't be able to get tickets. At least with the scalping, you can get them if you are willing to pay extra.

    I'm going to assume you are joking and refrain from further comment.

    You know what they say about assumptions... and I never joke.

    Is the point of this to create a clusterfuck for DLD?

    Lol, my sarcasm does not translate well here apparently. DLD already is a clusterfsck.

    I think it just might be how difficult it is to detect sarcasm online any time. And yes, I agree. A wonderful clusterfusck.

    My avatar should be a clue to most to take very little I say seriously.

    Did you pay for an argument?
