Anyone bought tickets on stubhub lately? I had not, but I've been selling my Cubs tickets there for years.

I tried to buy a $68 bleacher ticket today and by the time I checked out, my cost was $85.64. Hold on, I say to myself. They take a cut from my sales, as well. So I "listed" one of my tickets at $68 and saw that I'd get to keep $61 of that if they sold. So on a $68 listing, stubhub pockets $24.64, or >35%. That's horsefeathering insane. When is their ticketmaster-y class action coming?

25% to the buyer and 10% to the seller. Sounds about right, and all of the sites do it. It sucks,

Another rant:
I sell my Bears tickets on NFL ticket exchange, a site owned by the NFL and some [expletive] a couple years ago was smoking in my seats and got caught, so I get a nasty letter from the Bears saying if anyone is caught smoking again my tickets will be revoked.
