Poll #1392636 amazon fail?

I got am email from amazon advertizing the complete series of Angel on sale today only for $56.99. It is my understanding that they have made some correction to their fail, but they still failed (miserably). So my question is what should I do?

BUY IT! it's Angel at a price you can actually afford.
13(86.7%)
Don't buy it! Stand behind youself!
0(0.0%)
What difference does it make?
0(0.0%)
Compromise your morals to get what you want!
1(6.7%)
I must say I'd be a bit dissapointed in you if you end up buying it.
1(6.7%)


The givens in the above are that I definitely should be asleep and not posting and I shouldn't be spending money as I need to save to move. Also, I have greatly been wanting to watch Angel since Andy Hallet passed away.

P.S. Please respond soon, there is a deadline of midnight for me to make a decision.

Wow, that is a great price. I didn't vote though, tough call. I guess if I had to make the call I would say Don't buy it! Stand behind yourself! PLUS, as you mentioned, you need to save money so there is 2 reasons. BUT, if you decide to buy it, that is ok too. 8-)

I would look at this essay, particularly the ending section, before making up your mind on the failness of amazon:

I've mostly forgiven them as they have reinstated everything. And fixing their system so it can't happen again is something that takes time, will be flawed anyway because it always is, and they probably can't talk about it much because it helps inform the data-manipulators how they can get around the fix again.

And then I would say, don't buy it unless you've searched for a cheaper price first. Amazon's independent sellers, DeepDiscountDVD.com, etc. Then, if it's best, buy it.
