I have received offers and raised prices too. It happens when you have so many cards that you can't keep up. Sometimes I have cards that have gone up in value and I didn't know so my prices are now too low. Then I get a super lowball offer on the already low price. This allows me to see that my price was low and adjust it to what it is supposed to be worth. Is that what happened with Joel? I don't know but you made a blanket statement and I only offer another possible explanation.
I think the great philosopher, Ron White, said it best, "I had the right to remain silent but I did not have the ability".
