Account's require an address and a phone number. You're not going to be able to completely stop people from creating multiple accounts, but that should be enough to prevent people from setting up 10 or more.So what's to stop someone from creating 10 (or more) accounts and e-mail addresses and placing them into the queue? They should also screen on IP addresses. Not perfect but it adds another layer of validation.
Honestly nothing is going to stop them. There are enough free emails, SIP, and VPN options to take many spots in queue.So what's to stop someone from creating 10 (or more) accounts and e-mail addresses and placing them into the queue?

Well, having actually lived in a Soviet-bloc nation, I'm cognizant of the futility of what's being suggested here. Whenever prices aren't allowed to properly equalize, there will always be scalping. Always. Even Stalin couldn't stop scalping with lengthy prison sentences in Siberian gulags, and you think you're going to solve it with a queue and an address check? For every convoluted contortion you come up with, scalpers will find a way around -- a hundred ways around. You have a better chance of repealing the Law of Gravity than you do the Law of Supply and Demand. Why not learn from history, instead of repeating it?If someone still wonders why everybody dislikes rich people, just read above my comment...
As of yesterday, it's actually 8 hours.This is great but they should raise the window to more like 12 hours... I can imagine people with busy work schedules, or maybe people who work odd hours and might be sleeping when the email arrives, will be a bit disgruntled if they miss it. :-\
