I hope every single seller dies of the pox
And at least if you're prepared to pay you can get tickets to sold out gigs on ebay whereas in the past you would have missed out.
I've paid over the odds for tickets on ebay and I've also sold tickets for over the odds on ebay (although they were admittedly Westlife tickets and if some muppet wants to pay £100 to see Westlife i don't lose too much sleep)
whereas formerly, if you missed out, you'd know it was because some other fan bought the last ticket before you did. Rather than a drunk bloke in a tracksuit.
on scarlet mist coz I'm not a cunt (like the panda) :P
I've spent two hours trying to get 4 tickets for the Birmingham gig and have eventually had to settle for seating tickets in Manchester.
These touts (pronounced twats) specifically buy to sell, robbing genuine fans of a) their time whilst they wait to actually get through to buy the tickets and b) the actual tickets themselves.
Scarlet mist is great. People that buy these touted tickets on Ebay are pretty foolish for paying over the odds and are also just adding to the problem, creating a constant viscious cycle of supply and demand.
