I wonder if that is the reason why there was a problem with a lot of people trying to purchase tickets. Scalpers had already accessed their code.
Yesterday I was ready and waiting when they went on sale and so was my brother. We both had errors on our membership numbers from 10:00a.m. until right around 10:15a.m. and then both of ours started working at the exact same time. I joined a couple years before him so I'm sure our numbers arent close together or anything. I seems more like the ticketmaster system had an incomplete list of valid membership numbers. Exactly who's fault that is I think it open for debate if that is the case.
