No shit, Sherlock. You make it sound like South Florida isn't part of the US and this sort of shit is new - which part of scapling tickets remains such a mystery that this is surprising?

That probably sounds dickish and that's not my intent, but it's just pretty basic. These fuckers will know that they'll get tickets and are just playing the game.

If you chose to read into it, and I am not, but you could be of the opinion that these scumbags have inside knowledge and know that it will be a sell-out, hence the early advertising. And by inside knowledge, I don't mean that they necessarily have specific details, just whether the line-up is particularly strong, medium etc. As I said, that's one possible way to interpret things, but I wouldn't give them that much credit.

What it boils down to is that there will always be a market...

I wasn't suggesting you'd said anything about South Florida - simply that you were blurting this out like it's a fucking revelation, and that perhaps Miami is so far behind the rest of the country that scalpers don't exist there.

Yes, it's fucked up, genius. What's next - are you going to tell us that someone shot Kennedy and that the Earth really isn't flat after all? You're stating the obvious.

I look forward to the grammar police pointing out that it should be, "South Florida, you mongol".

Agreed - I don't know this for sure, but I suspect that a lot of the time they don't actually even have the tickets in hand - they simply have access to them when they want them (from since mysterious black market pool). In the past, I have spoken to a couple of 'brokers' (with no real intent to buy), and they always said that they would need to check will call back. Invariably, they did call back, having looked into it. Granted that was a few years ago and before the internet really took a strong hold on how tickets were bought and sold, but scaplers are scaplers and their MO doesn't really change...whether it's by phone, via the internet, or outside a venue.

crazy spanish chicken, sick baby, shut the fuck up.


the original point is valid: someone already selling either the promise of/coachella tickets at above face value is a morally abject practice, to say the very least.

the original response is valid: anyone dumb enough to hand their money over to these people deserves to get ripped off, and this certainly isn't anything new (pre-emptive scalping, I mean)

my point:
pollo, if you're THAT pissed, just phish the bastards. set them up. or look up their IP, find out where they are, find out if the local laws permit scalping, and call their local PD. or send an e-mail to goldenvoice. but what in the eternally flying fuck do you want, or god forbid expect any of us to do about it? everyone else, with obvious exceptions, just chill out and stop being so immature. this is a message board about a beautiful music festival. not the lobby for halo.

the only time i went thru stubhub (and the only time i sold tics for a profit, honest he begged me) ... it was an auction for charity for a late night show at vegoose and superfly donated them .... face was about 250 for two ... i had the high bid of 175 .... 175 went to charity .... online i sold them for 800 dollars ... so stubhub didnt interfere at all and was just the method the charity went thru ... win (for the charity), win (for the dude that bought them for a wedding present), win (for canx) ... and again about the thread, sometimes the places say "we do not know now what the seats will be, but they will be in section xxx" ....delta used to be the big scalper here and most people hated him for that .... cr****

It is fucked up that they are trying to sell tix to not-so-smart people when they do not physically have any tickets.

I am revoking this statement, but following replies made me giggle so I don't wanna delete it outright.

Well, quite often that happens when you act like a complete arsehole. I didn't really take issue with what he was saying, but how he was saying it. Hurling random abuse at people (as he was doing so freely) is bound to result in you getting slack - especially so when...well...when you're not that bright.

Yes, it's the internet...very well spotted. We can say what we want, including expressions of surprise or frustration at leeches (scalpers) - but if you want to get into a discussion, then do that...rather than telling people to go and fuck themselves (or their boyfriends). You need to have a basic level of guile, charm, or wit to have any hope of pulling that off without looking like a complete moron, and it appears that all three of those seem to be missing in action where Ladyboy Lover is concerned.
