I don't agree with it for sure, but there's not much that can be done to people buying so many of them (either for flipping or constantly returning them because they don't "meet expectations").It's best to laugh, but really we should be crying.
Imagine if there are thousands of people worldwide who act in this manner.
Of course there are going to be shortages and along with those, higher prices, as the costs of returned product is simply shifted to the consumers....
I guess I can laugh about it more than letting it upset me since I'm not in the market for any computer upgrades, so I'm standing on the sidelines during all of these component shortages. If I was trying to grab one of these AMD CPUs, I likely would have been much grumpier when I saw the number of CPUs they purchased over a few months.
