The way I think about it is it is like price discovery on an open market. I don't think most people here are out to screw others, but without showing the prices for other similar items that are currently for sale or have previously been for sale - no one knows how to price their item. It's almost a self-fulfilling prophecy: I want to list my widget for sale, but because all the sales have been done through PM, I have no idea of the market value range for that item - so then I say "PM me for price." And the dance continues.
