This is one of the rare times that having no friends works in my favor.

To answer your question the way people use it (correctly or not) is that it doesn't matter. In this case they are saying it doesn't matter what anyone thinks about mystery boxes since they are now banned. Or it doesn't matter the pros and cons of mystery boxes since they are banned.



True.

Debating the pros and cons of something that is now extinct is of no consequence as the end result is the same regardless of the outcome of the discussion.

Is routinely misused in English, making the word itself moot.


huh, look at that. I never knew I was using it improperly!

(and to think I was making fun of the people that say "mute"!)


Personally, I prefer the "Moo Point"

After reading all of the responses on this subject it seems what some people are trying to convey is the reason why selling mystery boxes is not good. One poster stated that they believe that the seller will give their friends all of the good books in their boxes while those to whom the seller doesn't know well and/or esteem will get boxes loaded with less than desirable books. Also, many buyers are not happy with what they get and believe that their box contents are not as valuable as the amount they paid for said box.

So, in order to keep things peaceable the mods banned them all together.

By what I have read I wouldn't doubt it if there were a lot more buyers of mystery boxes that were not very happy with what they got, but just won't say anything. In all of this, it looks like some people feel they were basically used to dump worthless books on. So, it looks like some just want to express their experiences and why they would never do it again regardless if it is now banned.

believe that was me, and what I think I said (and definitely meant) was that some mystery box threads are set up so the seller COULD favor one buyer over another.

I was also alluding to the old ebay scam of Selling 10 envelope chancess, 9 junk, one gets a NM98 and lo and behold the person who "gets" the NM98 is the sellers friend, and there either never was a NM98, or it never actually changed hands (just a way to bilk 9 other people out of money with the promise of a chance at a good book).

again not saying that happened here, just that SOME mystery threads are set up so that it COULD occur if the seller was unscrupulous.
