Lol I'm not sure what's crazier! That he thinks he can get that kind of money or that there's potentially someone out there who would pay it.
It's a good width!  If it's half-width it's too narrow, and full-width is too wide.

I wouldn't be surprised if someone does buy it. There will always be someone with enough money to waste.

I figured since this is one of the gh keys, it was worth noting on GH.

Yeah people are nuts. I just can't justify it, would much rather have a full set of GMK goodies from Originative or a Korean custom if I was going to go nuts spending.

In typical bitter ripster fashion, he's trolling and mocking GH.  What else is new?  Just look at all his posts mocking the current spat of CC sales and auctions in here.  He holds grudges and can't let things go.  I've had issues with him in /r/buildapc and spam.

I agree with you on that I would prefer to spend that much money on other things, but some ppl just value certain things more than others, I guess, and I can respect that. I want GMK goodies ~

Whatever makes you happy :thumb:

Agreed. When I first joined GH, I had a lot of admiration for his vast knowledge and helpfulness. Then it was like a light switch, and he went cray cray.

I agree, he got power hungry from being the leader of a bunch of uninformed circlejerkers.

I'm surprised he even has a GH CC given that he doesn't like GH anymore.

Anyways he's just trolling for attention. And if someone were to buy it, it would be some kid who's fallen under ripster's spell

It's pretty funny how his own subreddit has turned against him lately, any mention of 'geekwhack' and it's downvote city!

So I know many people are pretty upset about the situation or something, but I think the "$1000 dollar sale" is a pretty interesting satire on the state of the GH economy. I haven't been around for too long, yet I've seen that  CC sales are hugely controversial for both purchase interested and uninterested members. Regardless of current GH sales involving CCs, the continued creation of these specific keycaps, for lack of a better description, is adding fuel to the fire. Considering the wonderful quality of the GH community, it makes me sad to see that keycaps are causing social damage.

(...)Whereas back then I wrote about the tyranny of the majority, today I'd combine that with the tyranny of the minorities. These days, you have to be careful of both. They both want to control you. The first group, by making you do the same thing over and over again. The second group is indicated by the letters I get from the Vassar girls who want me to put more women's lib in The Martian Chronicles, or from blacks who want more black people in Dandelion Wine.
I say to both bunches, Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off! To hell with anybody who wants to tell me what to write. Their society breaks down into subsections of minorities who then, in effect, burn books by banning them. All this political correctness that's rampant on campuses is b.s.
