I see all the shysters are out in force on ebay!

Raspberry Pi this, Raspberry Pi that...

It really does pee me off that they take advantage of people on the back of all the good work the foundation is doing.

Come the revolution they will be the first against the wall, along with the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation!

Like this one... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rasp.....500wt_1158 currently running at £141+postage.   Are people THAT desperate?

I don't think it's fair to refer to the seller as a shyster or conman. He started his auction at 99 pence, and it's been bid up to this by the buyers.

It's likely he hasn't got his yet as there is only a stock photo, but it doesn't look like the normal scalping exercise to me (i.e., with a silly starting price).

It is human nature that people will try to profit from other people"s efforts. Morally, I think people stink but legally they are doing nothing wrong. Best to just ignore it.

Maybe these people lack GPP (Genuine People Personalities). May they have pain in all their (left) diodes!
