    Very nicely put indeed, I do try to remain quietly positive, however the afore mentioned people are indeed in epic abundance and thus overshadow the good-fairing people among us. Which is a shame, because those with a true voice and good intentions are left by the wayside, as they will never be seen or heard. A large portion of the comments are just meaningless. We all know why we are here, we all know what we desire, so let's help each other out. This is what community is about, a community puts in, and thence we can thrive. It must be a real kick in the teeth when you do do such a good deed like sharing an invite, an simply nod of the head, some acknowledgement is the least anyone would expect. There's a perfect and true saying:
    "Manners cost nothing". It's beautiful and simple all the same. It's a same many people don't consider this before carrying out their actions.

    I wish everyone here all the best, and I am genuinely happy for your impending success!

    It is a good conversation, and you are certainly asking the right questions. We do have to question everything otherwise we can't formulate an honest opinion, or rather, we all have opinions, but can we validate them with reason, rather than idle regurgitation or automatic neigh-saying. It's nice to dig a bit deeper and find out the substance of our thinking. :)

    The invite is going anywhere from $20 to $100 US. I just can't believe that. I would rather just be patient and wait, save that money for something else.

    Its not that ebay doesn't take action, its just that they are so slow to react to these reports that the sale is over with before they read the report. Remember invites have to be claimed within 24 hours and the purchase made within 3 days. Ebay takes 2-4days to react to reports.

    I'm glad someone was selling an invite on eBay or I wouldn't be enjoying my new phone now!

    If you have ...

    More time than money, you play the games and dance for your invite​

    More money than time, you pay the piper on ebay or elsewhere for your invite

    Others play the games until they give up and get another phone

    Others just keep riding it out hoping for an invite

    Nothing wrong with any of those approaches IMO​

    So... why the animosity regarding if you buy an invite or get one some other way. It's only a phone, not a cult. I have seen messages where it sounds like people cant scrap a few bones together to buy the phone, damn, if you don't cash and you are scraping together cash buy a phone, maybe you shouldn't be buying a $350 phone. If someone has the spare cash where they just want to buy an invite and can still buy the phone, if it does not bother them why does it bother you? If it does, you may have more of a problem they they do.
