Popular Out-of-Stock Item Notifications

Has anyone else gotten these?

Just in time for the holidays, we launched a program called Popular Out-of-Stock Notifications.

We’re notifying you when a significant number of potential buyers are looking for a product you once sold on Amazon.com.  If you receive one of these Popular Out-of-Stock notifications, we encourage you to take advantage of the recent customer interest in the product and offer it again for the holiday season!

I've gotten a few, all for the same item that I doubt has been sold at retail for months. Believe me, if I had any left, I'd have it listed, and I bet I'd get a lot more than I sold it for!

It's a good concept in theory, but when items are out of stock for reasons like that, it doesn't really help much to let us know that people would buy them if we had them.
