    I hear most guys named "Joe" deal with this at an alarmingly high rate.

    Is there a discogs cd thread, or is this LP thread it?

    I thought it was both, but that most people seem to post about vinyl.
    I posted about a Chemical Brothers CD boxed set a couple months ago. :)

    Almost 700 Mint Condition LP's, issued between 2015-2022, and priced below $10.00, at Discogs dealer SilverPlatters:
    Buy Vinyl Records and CDs from Silverplatters at Discogs Marketplace

    ... what's kinda-cool about this offering is that there are a lot of cool labels involved. Sure, they're B and C artists, but labels include Sub Pop, Ghostly Intl., Western Vinyl, Constellation, Nonesuch, etc. Not the third-rate punk pop bands that clutter lots of cheap LP lists on Discogs...

    Assuming it's the same chain; Silver Platters is Seattle based. What's ironic is that in the first 15-20 yers of cd, they carried cd only; no vinyl (Thus the name, "silver platters". Now they are vinyl focused. Methinks they believe in trends.............. lol!

    Wonderful tip! Silverplatters is just a few hours north of me, in Seattle. I've shopped at their locations in person and have come to trust them on Discogs as well.

    I grabbed 11 LPs for $81 including shipping, and I definitely left a lot of great stuff as well. Most of the interesting items are in the lower half of the price range filter, in my opinion ($5-7 per LP range).

    Thanks for the pointer to Record Safari. I was able to pick up a cool Voivod - Angel Rat reissue for $15 and Type O Negative / Trivium - I Don't Wanna Be Me RSD 7" for $12.

    WARNING - there's some sort of new scam going on at Discogs I'm afraid.

    For example: William Basinki's 'Disintegration Loops' LP box set is a rare and expensive item. Suddenly multiple "new sellers" from around the world are offering the set at very attractive prices:

    William Basinski - The Disintegration Loops (Vinyl, US, 2012) For Sale | Discogs

    ... and if you drill into the offerings from these new sellers, they are offering many rare items at deeply discounted items. Looks like a bad experience waiting to happen. I don't know how to report my fears to Discogs though. I expect they'd tell me that if I have a problem, take it up with Paypal, their payment processer.

    Be careful out there.

    Yeah, I would hope so too but I’m sure they are going to catch a few suckers regardless. I typically don’t buy from anyone listed as a New Seller there regardless of how great the price is.

    It also happens to regular sellers who get their account hacked. Seen that a few times. You know the old saying; if it seems too good to be true....

    Looks like someone already bit on the 90% discount on that item. Perhaps someone could identify the seller so that their other items can be reported.

    Discogs announced today that they are raising their selling fees (from 8% to 9%) across the board.

    Their suggestion to sellers: 'raise all your prices by 1% to pass the cost onto your customers'. They've even got an online tool for doing just that.

    Geesh ...
