There's no incentive for anyone to try to "fix" the flipping "issue." Retailers love it from an egocentric perspective when their pressing doubles in value shortly after release. Not to mention, it likely makes their next exclusive release sell out even more quickly. Discogs and eBay each take a percentage of every sale, so of course they want higher prices. If there weren't fools willing to pay these high prices, then there wouldn't be a market.

Personally, I like colored vinyl. But I don't typically buy it on the secondary market because of the high prices. Sure, seeing someone sell out for $20 and being flipped for $50 the next day can be annoying, but you have to ask yourself why it's annoying to you. Surely, there's another pressing if you just want to listen to the music. Plus, the black equivalent will most always be a better pressing anyway. If you wanted something of "value," you should have gotten there quicker to buy it from the retailer. If you just really love the band and have to have every release in every color, well, then buck up and pay the market value for it. There can't be that many bands you're that in love with that you'll go broke with that strategy.

Regardless of this controversial issue, anything that sells vinyl is a good thing.

Plenty of blame to go around for the flipping issues we all live with, and benefit from at times. However, if you’re looking for help from Discogs, look elsewhere. They celebrate “flipping.” Look no further than the “most expensive” records of the month that they publish. These “flippers” are making thousands off of old presses. The problem is inherent in this hobby: people want what they don’t have, and this creates supply and demand.

Thanks flippers for yet ruining a lot of people’s dreams of having a colored vinyl copy of this record.
