It may be clear to a few, but to others, it is like I'm starving their children or something. (don't start with the M3 is like your baby crap either) My point all along has been that if you are interested, cool, if not, say your peace and "leave it at that"

my life's fine. so you like everything everyone does at all times and never speak up? good for you. i didn't say the guy's evil. i just don't approve of what is doing, and that's my opinion. we probably wasted enough bandwidth on this one. man these online disagreements never end...one day this damn car will actually come out and we'll have more interesting things to say.

It's the same mentality people dislike other who bought the same car at a lower price. Some hate him because they think he is taking advantage of others while another group hate him just because he's making money. I don't really see how he's taking advantage of anyone. He's not forcing anyone to buy it at that price. If demand is not there he will be forced to pass it on.

Spots in line shouldn't be able to be sold. That's whack.

Maybe your answer is there, but I'm interested to hear his take on it. Unless, of course, you are taking responsibility for answering on his behalf.

dumb buyer but dedicated...haha
Really? Since when was having more money a sign of dedication? Do you think rock bands see their most dedicated fans as being those who pay inordinate premiums to scalpers? Or is it just possible that the most dedicated buyers are those who got in the queue early, intending to purchase and use the goods? Maybe if you actually read the rest of the thread you might notice the many sensible arguments against carpet-bagging...

You also might see the many pro-capitalism arguments and logical posts of people who understand the circumstances and agree with the option of selling my spot.

I'm afraid I have not seen a good pro-capitalism argument (or anti-capitalism argument, for that matter) posted here.

I'm not actually very clear why you keep waffling on about macro-economics either.

Do you actually believe that in some way you are valiantly upholding the "American Way"? Against a few decent folk who happen not to approve of "queue-jumping"?

Stop kidding yourself. You're a carpet-bagger.

Don't be afraid. I DO believe that I'm upholding the American way! If I have something that someone else wants and is willing to pay for, then why should I not be able to sell it to that person? Why should it matter to you (who aren't even in the US) or anybody else for that matter whether I buy the car or someone else buys the car? EVERYONE had the opportunity to be where I am, and if they chose not to be then that is their issue, not mine!

So, YOU stop kidding yourself, you whiney little As& Clown!:finger:

I'm going to disregard your childish post, save to suggest that if you don't want something to matter to people, then perhaps you ought not to spam them in the first place.

Choose to do what you want. I have not "spammed" ANYONE! I posted a thread, YOU CHOOSE to read it and reply to it. Your choice.....

It is YOU who are spamming the thread! You are one of those idiots who complain about what is on the TV or Radio, If you don't like what is on, JUST CHANGE THE CHANNEL!!!

If he didn't know about it beforehand how can he line up to pay for reserve.

It's not like you have to wait in line for it....lol
Not everyone is lurking on internet like you...lol

You are pretty dense...
Agreed. I'm not forcing anyone to buy it.

Why is it that the people who resort to childish insults in their posts always like to indulge in the irony of at once insulting other people's intelligence and riddling their posts with grammatical errors?

I like the way you laugh at your own "jokes", by the way
