@creepingdeath18: Can you give us any more details about why it is so horrible? I'm curious.

What? People still buy things at Gamestop? I started using Steam a couple years ago, and I haven't bought another physical copy of a game since. And with Gamestop these days, it's no wonder! I went into a Gamestop a couple months ago to see what was popular, and half of their merchandise was children's toys! Where are the "games" in Gamestop?

This game looks promising, but I'm going to wait to see the reviews before I buy it.

I hope Flannum enjoys working 80+ hours a week, because that's what he'll be doing at Amazon. Oh, and he better hope that he doesn't become one of the 10% mandatory layoffs.

I played Guild Wars 2 for 3 years, but this is an expansion that I am NOT buying. The value just isn't there in my opinion. Now that Anet has said that all future expansions will include all previous ones for free, there really is little incentive to spend $50 on this dud.

@redeemer6666: It was serious enough that Gamespot deleted the post. If you are going to post here, then follow the rules. If not, then get out.

@redeemer6666: Grass? What?

You don't think offering money to someone to kill someone else is a threat? I have nothing else to say to you then.

@mrbojangles25: Yes, you are right. It's legal, but immoral. Unfortunately, there is no way to make it illegal without completely shredding the constitution. However, Shkreli has just changed his mind and announced that he will be reducing the price, although we still don't know by how much. Also, since this medicine is old, it is no longer patent protected, so let's hope that a different company comes in and produces a generic version of it at a reduced cost.

One final thought: I can't help but think that this kind of situation would not have happened if it weren't for health insurance companies. The pharmaceutical companies and hospitals know that almost everyone is insured and not paying out of their own pocket (especially since the implementation of Obamacare), so in their minds, charging huge sums of money for medicine and services is just squeezing money of of the insurance companies.

@mrbojangles25: I agree that what this guy did was immoral, but that is all it is. It is not illegal. You cannot force people to provide a service for whatever price you deem appropriate. That is called socialism. I also think you should know that nowhere in the Declaration of Independence does it grant you the right to happiness. You only have a right to the pursuit of happiness, a very different thing entirely. I'm also disappointed to hear that you think charging someone too much money for a product that they still willingly paid for is worse than the rape of a minor.

@creepingdeath18: Just because you don't like someone's actions does not give you the right to make death threats. Reported.
