> As my last reply considered, is the seller price > gouging if he paidYES he is price gouging by asking for such a high price. it is irrelevant to everyone involved except himself as to how much he paid for it; its how much he is ASKING for that determines the rate of gouging.
> an already gouged price for the item?
it shouldn't matter whether you find nice sellers or asshole sellers, it the whole over all mentality that one person can ask for such a high price initailly that bothered me so much. like i said, its totally different if the people who want the thing want to spend that much on something. it's their money, they can spend it however they want.
when i sold my boredoms VCN boxset, i sold it with no reserve and started the opening bid at $5.00! if somehow, the final price would have only gotten to like $20 bucks, i woudl have sucked it up and sold the greatest deal to someone else at my own loss. but thats only because i am an honest and idealistic person. (also, i realize that this is an uphill swim for me)
> If he's going to be forced to pay top dollar for > an itemYES. it is wrong. you can let the person who is intersted in buying the thing determine how much they want to pay for it. thats the RIGHT THING to do. jesus, i feel like i am some kind of communist, but what the hell happened to just doing the right thing for the people's sake? if a collector wants to pay that much, i'm not stopping them, but i am going to be pissed at the seller, especially the seller that ONLY buys rare things because they want to sell them back for higher prices to people. that's just a wrong way to make money. that's dishonest.
> he wants, is it so wrong to charge top dollar for > an item he's
> Today, however, thanks to the Intarweb, you canmy materialistic wants? huh? i am angry at a seller for gouging. i don't want anything besides having the chance to point out the fact that asking for $52 for superroots 7 IS ACTUALLY price gouging.
