Had a message from a friend who said that, despite the labels on ARCs and the publishers' messages about not selling them, technically it is not illegal. I stand corrected. So let me state it this way for those who would parse the requests:

IT IS UNETHICAL TO BUY AND SELL ARCs. IT SHOULD BE ILLEGAL. No one should have to tell you that, those of you who have no qualms about buying and selling. Those who elect to ignore the wishes of the publisher (who was magnanimous enough to give out the books) are not being professional. And now, I will turn back to my next ARC of the day so that I can float it on next week.

Illegal vs unethical
I was thinking of these posts of yours as I was having a 'discussion' on Twitter today with a guy who didn't see any wrong in a bookstore selling ARCs.
