aww no, Jurai is quitting the Walmart thread after drama quitting the Target clearance thread? Please don't take your brickseeks and go home, Jurai.
Resellers are a fact of life. We can berate them on CAG since their brag posts aren't welcome here. But they are always going to exist and you gotta learn to deal with that. You are a member of a site (brickseek) that harbors many more resellers; a great deal more than here anyways, percentage-wise.
Clearance people are hoarders. 50% of them have a sickness. My dad was one of those people. He used to hit up the clearance aisles of Target in the 90s and just arm shovel stuff into his cart. But when you let people buy video games, especially ones they are interested in, for only $3 then of course they are going to hoard them.
You can't prevent social networking, my dude. It also is clearly more of a problem for you on the whole, when including other sites, than it is on here because it's not all that prevalent here. We are all gamers here. Don't let it get to you.
Very well said. I'm not going to fault any dog in this fight, since I can see arguments for either way. I've been guilty of coming across a super cheap item and getting that 'sales high' and buying a couple extra of em out of excitement, getting caught up in the moment. I think that's only being human. But buying a couple isn't the same as buying 20 of em. Re-sellers are a way of life, as you said. All's fair, in love and discounts. Very rarely have I found it profitable to hoard extra copies to re-sell. Maybe some people are pro's at it but in the end, I usually find it more trouble than it's worth. USUALLY. I've gone the other way in the past coupla years, and focus on trying to post about deals I see instead, on CAG. Nice feeling to help other hardcore gamers out, cause I'd hope someone else here would do the same for me.
In general, I've developed a soft spot for Jurai, because I think his heart is in the right place. A shame to see him leave...
