Yep, though the word I would use is outrageous. I don't get it. I have posted stuff for sale on craigslist at prices I considered to be reasonable: 40%-50% less than retail for something in really good condition, and would get few or no inquires. I can't imagine these people who are asking 10% off retail (or sometimes full retail) ever get any inquiries, much less actually sell anything. Yet, the outrageous prices persist. As others have said already, some good deals can be found, but they usually go fast, sometimes within a couple of hours.
