Quoted from Xantanian:
Ok, so let me ask all you triggered people.
What would you do in the situation?
What price would you be happy to see this listed at?
Why not give advice instead of hate speech?
My bet is I get 0 advice because you all are just looking for a reason to be mad.
if you’re asking honestly, i’ll tell you what i’d do.. i’d pass on the 2nd machine because someone else obviously wants it. just getting one should be enough free money for any hard working phone pounder like yourself.
and i actually put my actions where my mouth is, because i had 2 spots available to me for gnr CE. once i secured the first game, i told the other distro to offer it down the line. maybe you’d call that righteously stupid, but i don’t care. i’m blessed to have found this hobby. some would say it’s what defines me and it got my life back on track. so i pay it forward.
but that might not be your thing. and if it’s not the choice you’d make, that’s fine, but at least be able to keep it in your pants for long enough to let the friggin’ angry mob cool down and drop their pitchforks. you're flaunting a prime rib in a den of hungry lions, it’s like that scene in dumb and dumber when harry’s hands are freezing and lloyd finally says, “here you should take this 2nd pair of gloves”!! there’s something to be said about patience and tact.
and you obviously know that’s the case, cuz you started out by explaining your actions.
anyway, that’s what i would’ve done, and that’s my advice. take it or leave it.
