No, what happened was a group of people got scammed pretty hard. The food and sleeping accommodations are a byproduct of that. Just because the vast majority didn't get personally punched in the face, does not make the whole thing OK.
Good thing they have the money to get a good lawyer, bend the promoters over and get more than their fair share in recompense

Compare to your middle-class who would probably have to settle for whatever they can complain about and maybe get out on the phone because really do you think they can afford the legal fees of suing very rich concert promoters for how long it'd be dragged out in court?

I think you fail to see the big picture of how much more privileged you are to be rich

The game is fundamentally different at that level.

Thank you, jiffy, I never knew you could afford more things when you have more money. And you're saying it makes a lot of difference to one's quality of life, too? A real game-changer? Wow.

With the obvious out of the way, do you want to address the rest of my post and explain when they ceased to be people deserving of compassion?

I'm not saying you should care about their plight. The token kind of compassion, like when you read an article about something bad happening in a country you can't even pronounce let alone point to on a map, and then post it on a forum with a 'look at this terrible thing' sort of a vibe so people know what a good person you are.

I mean, if you get your rocks off hating on rich people, why not turn on the organisers instead of demonising the victims? They actually have it coming.

Because liberalism is a mental disorder which, like in war propaganda, creates a caricature of 'the rich' where they are no longer people, they are beasts to be defeated.

That is the high price, and middle class people spend that much on 10 day vacations all the time.

The price was for two weekends, plus the week between, full food, accommodations, plus concerts each weekend.

So what does an all inclusive vacation in the Bahamas cost? $400 bucks a night looks to be about the average. So that is $4,000 of the cost right there. Add in four days of an exclusive concert .... Blink-182 costs $750,000 to book ..

Yeah, jerome will take it from here.

Just so we're clear, when you make millions off your twinkling lights, everyone on MR can be assumed to have your express permission to scam you.

After all, you can afford it.

I'm not sure if you're legitimately not understanding the position of many in this thread or if you're trying to Jerome it up here Imp but if it's the former I think you need to take a step back, a few breathers, remember you're on Mindromp, and re-read the thread slowly.

But yeah, safe to say that if I had millions of dollars, I'm not going to blink an eye over 12 thousand that I'm almost assuredly going to get back and probably more on top of that.

It isn't as if they weren't warned, either. Buzzfeed, which is a popular enough site that word would get around to people likely to attend, blasted out warnings weeks ago saying the event looked like either a scam or so poorly planned that it would be a disaster.

A great deal of the advertising was done through 'Instagram models' pretty people who get paid to advertise things on their Instagram accounts, part of the draw being that these IMs would be there.

Someone should start a list of the people who have it bad in the world so we can work out how much to care about them. After the twenty million people in the horn of Africa that the unhcr had been trying to tell the world for the last 3 months are at imminent risk of starvation, it will be interesting to see how much I've got left for a few people who can afford to spend between ten and a hundred and twenty five thousand dollars on a party weekend

In your own moronic way you have exposed the absurd mind of the satanically indoctrinated.
