YIKES! Designers Reselling their Rare Gachas??!!

Sad day when you see that creators pull their own gachas from machines selling them on the
MP for thousands of Linden$.  As far as I am concerned this destroys the entire premise of what gachas are and the epitame of greed!

If you can't trust a creator to keep their items in a gacha and not RESELL them for thousands  of Linden Dollars then what is the point of a gacha at all?
I am sure this will be a controversial issue but I think its something that is certainly in need of discussion. Do  big event like the Fantasy Gacha Carnival allows this (this machine is from Fantasy Gacha Carnival from August 2016 and has been for sale on the Second Life MP for some time)?  
How gacha players feel about this?
Does a designer selling her own items impact people trading who PAID to PLAY the gacha?
As an avid gacha player, half the fun is trading and collecting.
We all know we get stuck with multiple items that we trade or many resell to try to recoup some lindens from having multiple items.  How does a creator reselling their own items impact the entire premise and value of the item?
Hope this sparks a lively discussion and sheds some light on the subject.
Some machines retire after events, most creators put the machines in their main stores so customers can still play and collect the items.  This allows the item still to exist and not destroy the premise of a gacha machine. 
But to unpack and resell your own gacha items for thousands??? 
YIKES!

UPDATE: The owner of the FGC does not allow such practices and the owner of the event contacted this creator about her reselling her own items.  The items have since been removed from the Marketplace.  So nice to see the event owner get involved and back up the gacha players who support this event and promote great ethics.
