World's smallest violin to be played for opportunistic sellers banned from eBay and Amazon for price gouging

This is the epitome of democratic, free market capitalism?

The moron who bid £210 is also responsible for the absurdity of the situation.

If the past is anything to go by, at various times when there have bee shortages, for every gouger there is a least one twat with more money than sense who will pay an outrageously inflated price because they can and others can't.

I think both parties of such a deal deserve a place in hell because they just make life difficult for everyone else.

Unbridled socialism doesn't work but neither does unbridled capitalism, we need some balance between the extremes.
