@ebm I don't want to make things worse for anyone. Are you suggesting that it's better not to buy things that sellers have chosen to offer for sale?
Clearly, they are coerced by circumstances. I did not create these circumstances, nor did anyone here. Still, no one wants to take advantage of them.
But in order to decide that buying from them makes their situation worse, we'd need to know that they were actually doing something against their self-interest. But are they? Probably a case by case question, but how would one ever know?
Given all that, I think the safer course is to trust that sellers know what they're doing and why; then, it's just up to each of us to make our own decision.
