I have never seen a more ignorant buncha new sellers posting questions to the Amazon Seller Forums in my entire time with Amazon.
Some of the questions make me wonder if they have their full faculties or not.
Geesh!

I know what you mean. And if you call them out for not bothering to do their due diligence, you get lambasted as "hateful", "mean", "rude" and run the risk of getting your post flagged by over-sensitive snowflakes.

I truly don't think that they even think or search out help before posting:
Example:
Can I sell on Amazon but ship products from Costco to buyer?
How to print 4x6 shipping labels for packages to FBA?

Some of the questions on there are really about as dumb as they come. Like the "Can you tell me where you source your inventory" questions. On that question, I usually depart from my kind and gentle self and get about as blunt as they can (without getting too nasty, of course).

The questions regarding sourcing, labels, printer, ungating, receipts, China, will amazon remove a negative feedback for such and such reason, why didn't Amazon deliver my customers package on time (we'd all like to know the answer to that question but never will), I want to sell this <fill in the blank> product but I need to change the original page and add a free bonus (ARGHHH!), free giveaways, youtube videos for your ecommerce channel, giveaways for reviews, taxes (asking freakin help about taxes LLC incorporated and more on the boards) and more.

I know, I know...
I gripe about the postings on the Seller Forum and have for a decade.
But GEEEEESH!
This latest group?
Arguably the worst.

How to print 4x6 shipping labels for packages to FBA?
First you need an HP Designjet Z6800 Inkjet 60" Large Format Printer (msrp $16,500)
Print your label(s)
Use a paper cutter to trim to 4x6

I buy it all from Amazon, mark it up, wait until Christmas, list the items. Profit.

On the occasions I do become extremely agitated, I recommend Alibaba and tell them that is where they can buy legitimate brand-name stuff for dirt cheap and make tons of money on Amazon.

And if they are that stupid to actually do it, they don't need to be selling on Amazon. Just wait for them to get suspended so I can then yell at them for buying stuff from Alibaba thinking it was legitimate.

And This:
Harmful Feedback & Criminal Defamation: LEGAL ASPECTS

For those of that go far back with eBay and selling.. I can well remember back in the day the sellers that would post this same type of useless thread on the eBay forums.
