At least touts had some tickets

Thanks to the strenuous efforts of the police, ticket touting is all but non-existent at the 2012 Olympics. Result? Thousands of empty seats.

Say what you want about the abhorrent nature of touts but they do recycle unwanted tickets in accordance with market forces and you cannot buck the market.
