Thats just business, they are using a marketing trick to get you to their shop. It worked didn't it?

I get so pissed off when people put things like nanocarbon and marseline in for 9999999999. It might not seem like it can hurt anyone, but guess what, when 40 of you people do it, WE CAN'T ACTUALLY SEARCH FOR THE ITEM; all we get are you jerks who just wanna screw other people out of a spot on the list. Show a little courtesy; don't put stuff in your shop if you aren't the least bit interested in selling it. I've even come across shops with JUST nanocarbon and marseline priced at 999999999, and it stays that way for 3 days. UPDATE YOUR SHOPS.
Way to pick out my point right away. It's rude, it blocks up the ability to actually find what I'm looking for, and it guarantees I won't buy anything from them unless their price is so ridiculously cheap I can turn around and make more money off them, and that I will never go to their shop again. So yeah, real effective marketing trick.
Would you like it if a store said "Come in and look at the latest most popular stuff... Oh by the way we aren't gonna sell any of what you're looking for, we want you to take this junk instead.
Also, how does having only 2 items priced at 999999999 and nothing actually sellable for 3 days = an effective marketting tool? Goddamn waste of space in an already flawed marketting system.
