I, for one, would like to go to the event but don't have a spot and refuse to pay more than face value.
Free market. Supply, Demand, etc.

He/she has the right to ask for the moon since they bought it early on.

Someone will pay it, and that's not hurting me or you. You can't fix stupid.

FWIW, I'd like to go as well, but I figure eventually COTA will be available at a more reasonable price to the masses. The new will wear off. I don't have to be first. I'm patient.

Would you sell your parts at asking price if you didnt know them?

I almost always sell my stuff too cheap. Sometimes I'll tell people to give me less than what I asked for even though they're willing to pay the asking price.

If someone bought the tickets and can't make it then pass then along for what you paid and let someone else enjoy the day.

I think I place high expectations on people which makes it my problem, I guess.

Can't say I disagree. I guess reasonable is a relative term. Relative to paying $5000, $600 is a steal...haha.

On a side note, I think Josh (broken) was thinking about selling his. Might hit him up.

Watch the boards and CL. I got mine from CL for just a bit over cost and my buddy just bought one yesterday off here for I think $10 over cost. I'm sure as it gets closer more will pop up.
