To me it seems like a scale - rip-off, retail pricing, sharp pricing, deal, bargain, clearance, fire sale, obvious mistake …
In the case of ‘obvious mistake’ - I’d personally check that it is real, and reasonably accept (a little disappointed but not a lot) that it was a mistake and hope they hadn’t been fleeced by too many opportunists. Regardless (or as Americans say, irregardless ) of the law, mistakes happen and I’d like to think if I was the poor company soul who stuffed up that I wouldn’t meet morons like David Leavitt - to me he epitomises everything that is sick and cancerous on social media and the way it can create the mob mentality.
Badly and No.
Definitely not - it is about the company not the individual - if the individual has crossed any boundaries or behaved/acted in an inappropriate manner then the company should deal with it. This isn’t always easy of course, things often get personal, but it is an interesting exercise in self control to try keeping within the bounds of respect and politeness with an individual while directing ones complaint toward the company (different if they are one in the same though )
Looking at the guy on twitter he claims

He’s followed by John McAfee - that tells a big part of the story!
Reading the thread - this guy seems a total troll … and possibly a liar? oh, sorry he admitted to being a journalist already (that’s probably a bit harsh …)
It is refreshing to see how many people call him out for what he is.
I hope Tori gets her holiday …
