I can't help but think that The"sold bumps" thread and all the genius there had at least something to do with this.
Edit:felt I should say that although this isn't a bad change for me personally (I think the $ is very reasonable), I really feel for the casual seller who has a couple items to list here and there from personal acquisitions. (unless that has been taken onto consideration and is accounted for)

The idea is that the reader would not be able to distinguish between pinned and unpinned threads, since having readers easily skip pinned threads would accomplish the opposite of what we want to achieve.
I think this would annoy me a lot and frustrate many buyers, most of whom would continue using the site as normal but maybe with a suspicion that the place is becoming "commercialized". Stealth pinning seems almost Orwellian to me and I don't think this would be a good thing. Just my .02 (because I really like SF).
