Seriously fucking hate people who do that, but it's a problem that will never go away sadly.

I'm just pissed I'll never get a copy of Artist In The Ambulance with paying extortion prices on Ebay thanks to these people.

A distinction needs to be made between the Title Fight and FOB situations. The latter, where people buy multiple copies of a limiting pressing, is really unfortunate and frustrating, and labels should try to prevent it (only sell a few copies per person, for example). The former, where there's plenty of records but people want the /500, is not a problem. I have no issue with profiting off morons willing to pay $100 for a particular color.
Hot Topic needs to really be blamed, mainly for being so careless and letting people buy multiple copies at once.

True, but I have a hard time complaining about those guys. The exclusive releases over the past few years have been fantastic.

BTW, Artist in the Ambulance is only going for like $30-35 from what I've seen
GOOD, then I need to jump on that. Honestly, HT needs a better ordering system. You can't put out awesome releases and not have a system in place to prevent people from ordering multiple copies at one time.

I think the problem is the nature of HT's operation--they're a big business and want to make their cash as fast as they can. It's unfortunate, but their statute also probably accounts for their sway in getting the great exclusives.
Judging by my last visit to a HT store, they seemed to care more about selling Adventure Time merch and meme shirts than music so I'm surprised they've gotten these many releases.

Waaa Waaa Waaa

How about the record labels produce enough to meet demand? I have no problems with someone buying an extra vinyl or 2 to flip. People have kids to feed, who the fuck are you to tell them how to feed their kids? Exactly. Now go learn something about economics and be more prepared the next time your favorite band comes out with a limited vinyl that their record label couldnt match demand for so you can buy it at retail price.

*drops mic*
If they're buying records to sell on Ebay so they can feed their families, then they have fucked up priorities and they should take a good hard look at themselves.
