Someone else had posted a link to that last year. For furry fandom (and probably all the SF/Fantasy fandoms) reasons #4 and #6 are the most probable. They say they can't afford it, but somehow they always come up with money to attend cons, buy porn or fursuits, go out and get drunk, ect, but somehow coming up with $8 or 9 to order a print or comic is far beyond their means. Yeah, and I have a bridge to sell'ya.

(the above rant is aimed specificly at people who post "I'd love to buy X but have no money.")

Yeah but they probably really don't have any money and they forgo rent to buy those prints, comics, fursuits, and go to cons without a place to crash, living on the consuite foods. ;)

This. So much this.

I've encountered that behavior a LOT in my history of con-going. There was even one incident where someone, who had coincidentally bought art from me as well, was sitting next to the ATM panhandling from users saying that he spent too much in the dealer's den and now he doesn't have enough money to pay for the room and his roommates are keeping his stuff hostage until he can pay, saying things like "but you have so much money there can I just have some of it?" to the ATM users. Appalling!

It's all about priorities. Like my dad says, "People do what they want to do". If they do that, they probably don't want to buy the print all that much.
