I agree with all of this, but if there are people willing to take the risk and pay for batch #2 now, why should the buyers or Avalon wait?  If nobody is willing to take that risk, Avalon will have to do as you suggest.  But if sufficient numbers of people are willing to pay for batch #2 now, then Avalon can go ahead and people who want to be safer will just have to wait for batch #3 or later, right?  People who want to bungie jump without a tested cord shouldn't be told they have to wait until the cord is tested for people who want to be safer, IMO.
That's kind of my thinking as well... Avalon can post batch #2 for sale whenever they want, and people can order if they believe they are legitimate.  Anyone who wants to wait to see more proof can wait to see more proof.  It's a free market.
The problem is that if they are a scam, this just proves that BTC people in general tend to be gullible and naive, swayed by the blindfolds of promised profits. There have been some pretty large scams in the past, and we don't need another giant one. It just hurts the Bitcoin economy in the end.

Some people will pay dearly for this education.  Others will obtain it for free.  Hopefully the end result will be a better educated bitcoin economy.

Radio Shack and Fry's don't carry a decent selection of MOSFETs or inductors, and even if they did sending them to China would be like shipping coals to Newcastle - it's one of the few places where you can actually walk in and buy these kinds of parts.
Thank you for helping re-rail this thread. Of course my suggestion of RadioShack was nearly idiotic. But maybe it is a seed of some worthwhile discussion how to negotiate the terms of sale.
I'll bet you strippers to nerds or fine gourmet meals to pots of ramen that you're all currently ignoring the people who are actually making ASICs and who will dominate the ASIC market for years no questions asked simply because they can't be bothered to come to this forum and talk to you at all. I know this because experience teaches: it's what you did re MPEx a year/eternity ago.
It is a worthwhile reminder: ignoring people in such a rapidly developing filed as Bitcoin is inherently risky. Cheerleaders are more pleasant to listen, but sceptics and outright detractors may be better informed.
Wow!!!

You are all getting F'ed in the A.

LOL
But then we may have to listen to an occasional outburst of coprolalia.
(surely there must be somebody of 'statue' in NY?).
There is, though she doesn't get out much anymore.

Or a diss over a typo of statue vs. stature.

So how about semi-relevant link to Youtube:

Bad Businessman  (Squirrel Nut Zippers)

There's a man going around in the town
Spreading lies, he's the bad businessman
Does his business while he can
He just does his business bad

He's a clown, going to get bounced around
If he don't keep his business underground
He's a player and every time he deals a round
It's just a bad hand, what a bad man

Beware of what he sells
Surely go straight to Hell
'Taint no bottom in that wishing well
Bad businessman

He's a clown, going get bounced around
If he don't keep his business underground
He's a player and every time he deals a round
It's just a bad hand, what a bad man

Beware of what he sells
Surely go straight to Hell
'Taint no bottom in that wishing well
Bad businessman, swing it

He's the bad businessman
He's the bad businessman
He's the bad businessman
