How is a wall of 60 boxes impressive, you see the boxes stacked all the time in store.
Therefore you are clearly being antagonistic.
If you want to show the world what kind of a person you are just go for it.
Hmmm so back to this 'Blocking idiots' thread!
I got my palletful on monday, 3 full days after BF.My only regret and the real reason i cant live with myself is that i couldnt get there on BF - i probably missed out on at least one more palletful.
Btw anyone want to see a pic of them? The wall i made out of the ~60 boxes is quite impressive. Or quite annoying. Either way its a must see ;)
And don't give me no BS line of "oh its business", because no decent business person in their right mind wastes their time posting photos of their warehouse on a collector forum.
The thread started from a rant about buying limits and meandered into a debate on whether or not there should be quantity limits and if so, how it should be enforced. If we can keep it that way without name calling and antagonism, we're happy to allow it to continue, although I think most people have said their peace by now.
The only issue is when there are clearances.. everyone would like to grab a deal I'm sure. Buying all sets on clearance will have more consequences. Clearance sales are sometimes store-specific, so they could have bigger impact. It's ultimately up to your karma.
I don't think that the origin of the phrase is as clear cut as that which was offered. At any rate, I'm going to invoke "common usage". Rather than citing a single example from 2003, here is my exhibit:"speak your peace" - 400,000 google results"speak your piece" - 82,000 google results
What would be and is "unfair" is some governing body telling people how much they can earn or have.
If a buying limit is enforced by the retailer and enforced uniformly, I don't think that's "unfair" at all, since it's their prerogative to sell as they wish.
But I do have an issue with resellers targeting "kids" sets and cornering the market supply in a deliberate effort to resell at higher prices. That's not fair, and it's not right. Particularly given that those resellers are not necessarily subject to the same limits and rules as the traditional stores. If they want to serve as shopowners, fine. Do it the right way.
