He also claimed that he was joking, which is how I took his post. I guess he should have put a wink smilie at the end.

I ordered this last night around 6PM...right before that one guy ordered 100 of them. I'm positive this will be canceled.

Due to peer pressure I ordered one

I was able to place an order for one. So far it is still in the processing state.

Been reading that people have been getting cancellation emails.

No email here, either. I fully expect it to be canceled, though.

Yeah no kidding. Got my cancellation email, but the charge is on my check card showing as pending. It'll come off, but still, you'd think if they were gonna cancel/deny a purchase they would do so before charging you. Oh well. Worth a shot.

Same email. Gah, now I'm probably on BBB's spam list for nothing.

Hey, I got this email. WTF.

DVD Polizei, that's a joke, right? Right?

If not, that has to be the most hilarious email I've seen. Illegal, but hilarious. I'd be pissed if it has been me but I would just have called and been all like "Hey, I had to try, now please refund the charge!"
