Default Let's Play a Fun Game! When X really means Y

Let's play a fun game. When you see "X" on eBay or elsewhere it really means "Y".

I'll start. When you see "Please read description" in item title the seller really intends to pass off a reprint/counterfeit, so in the item description they elaborate a bit further "found at estate sale but not sure of origin so selling as a reprint...."

Ok, your turn

Resubmit? (or undergraded) means I already tried and failed.

"thanks for all the inquiries" = no one has shown any interest in this overpriced, off-center t206

"great value" = overpriced

"buyer backed out" = there was no buyer

"card is still available" = i've already used the above three

WOW!

Means the seller has a few extra characters available for his title, can't think of a small, useful descriptive word, and is hoping a buyer will search on the key word "WOW"

"PSA?" means "this card is not graded by PSA, but you're searching for PSA"

"Please Read" in the description usually means "Please Skip Me" to me.
