You clearly don't understand much the rules of retail. Here's a very common scenario:
Someone posts on a message board that a "reliable source" has told them there will be shipments of a new game system to Walmarts a week early and you can go in and buy them if you ask the game department manager. They have them stored in the back.
You, thinking, "it's just a game system," guilt them into divulging their source. Their source happens to be their sister-in-law who works for the corporate office. You call the corporate office to "verify" before making the 20 mi trip to your local Walmart.
Sister gets fired. All pre-sales get pulled.
Go read Fatwallet.com or any shopping or deals sites. It's people like you, people who can't understand the concept of ambiguity, that potentially ruin it for everyone else.
It's not as cut and dry as you may believe.
