a place for zinesters - writers and readers
additionally, i can't believe we are STILL having this tired old argument about re-selling zines. let's just accept the fact that some people are assholes who think that because they spent a buck or two on a zine, they have this moral higher ground they are claiming so they can hypothetically sell it off (even though it's a ZINE... *yawn* let's move on.

i know that people who think they're going to finance their kid's college education selling zines on ebay are in for a rude awakening
& i'm just glad i write the kinds of zines that they are unlikely to want to buy. at least there seems to be a preferred-content divide along with an ethics-of-re-selling divide (& in fact, i'm sure one feeds the other.
[Though I don't think there's a moral right to expect anybody else to respect those feelings unless they're made clear at the point it's sold]
I'm not sure where any "moral right" could be expected when the transaction also includes the word "sold". It's a pretty odd thing to ask an interested party to pay money for an object and then make demands of them on top of their payment. I think it's shaky even when the item in question was gifted -- but when money has changed hands?
