Over the past few months I've noticed that there has been some discussion about the word "rare" and how everybody and their uncle is using it. It seems once someone attaches the word to something it sticks like glue and with as easy it is to Google something nowadays it gets blown out of context driving all the prices on our hobby up (and everything else). I guess if your selling something it wouldn't be bad but maybe false advertisement to get top dollar? Don't get me wrong there is plenty of "rare" things out there and they don't get the proper acknowledgement they deserve.
So perhaps we should stop using the word and replace it with "hard to find", "not common" or "haven't seen one of these in a coon's age". Yeah I know it will be a pain to spend a few more seconds typing some more words instead of just one, but maybe if we start now it'll correct its self one day.
Anyways just a thought
