Yep, even then. They should take a little bit of pride in their work, and also 
  do the rest of us the common courtesy of first checking anything that they 
present as fact.

If the former isn't possible, there's absolutely nothing wrong with listing an 
item and admitting that they know nothing about it! If the seller knows 
nothing about the item, there's no reason for not just saying so...
