While I agree that in the aggregate the buying an extra one or two probably does more to artificially increase demand and decrease supply than the large scale flippers, I think that the degree to which the guy that posted that picture is hurting CAGs and others in his local community is probably a bigger and more offensive problem.
There's less "large scale" resellers out there than you think. For every one of them, there's ten collectors. Not much of a difference if one guy buys twenty vs. ten guys buying two.
If the argument on why "scalpers" are bad is that they take opportunities away from regular consumers. Collectors who buy multiples are doing the exact same thing. It's hypocritical for any of them to hassle resellers, plain and simple.
