I disagree... I think it's vindictive. sharing a list of good sellers and/or experiences with (bad) sellers or experience would be the most productive and perhaps is worthy of another thread.Themis wrote:good thread, i think we should keep it going.
sure initially the idea is to help, yes its disgusting a seller would make more than the label or artist, but that is also the benefit of buying vinyl, it's resale value later. someone who might "currently" be selling a record, but the time you read this it, they could have changed their price... some and many do. I dont get.. it's petty to me. I'll use my own personal judgement when buying something. put it in a want list, if the price doesn't match my budget, I'll check back in 6 months.
someone once had my white label selling for $150 for years.. ppl are just testing the marketing. ppl come during the DEMF and go record digging trying to turn over records. it's the same old hussle. they wouldn't do that (if) ppl didn't buy it, but some do, so therefore so will they. it's the free market. If it's out of your "personal budget" then move on, no need to throw stones on the internet..
* saw mike huckaby repressing something since he saw someone sell one if his records for $50 on discogs... so in the end, perhaps there is cause and effect.. and a positive outcome.
