No, the only case I have to say is that it is a participle version of the verb, which is clearly stated. It is a "past participle of buy". It's still TECHNICALLY a verb, but you cannot USE it as a verb in a sentence, which is why I say it is not a verb. You can argue that I was semantically incorrect, but for all intents and purposes it's not a verb. So

So as to avoid my continuing to be completely off-topic, I'm going to see S3 for absolute certainty this Friday. I've even gotten work explicitly off to prevent the slightest possibility of missing it.
