Should "Feeler" Ads Be Permitted in For Sale Section?

Poll Question: Should "Feeler" Ads, Including "Testing the Waters", Be Permitted in For Sale Section?

A "feeler" to me is a chance for the seller to back out on a deal and say, "I was just 'feeling' out interest". An item for sale should be a Yes or No deal based on an agreement on the listed price and terms.

I equate "feelers" to the current GT ban on "auction-type" listings (e.g. price not listed for WTS listing). For example, a "feeler" listing does not mean you see if someone will pay your listed price, then either renig and repost later to see if someone else will pay more, or see if you get higher offers via PM.

Posting an item for sale means you will sell the item at the listed price and terms if a buyer accepts both. An item is for sale, or it's not, period.
