Impossible or not, the board is not new. If I purchase something that is labeled new and it ends up being a used item that is "like" new I will still be pissed. This is called false advertising.
I see what you're saying but I can't edit the title of the thread. Still, the description text should be accurate enough and I hope nobody feels ripped off. I personally would consider it new, but I can understand how you might object.
Yup, just the title is misleading, and I never once thought that the OP was trying to scam anyone or anything like that. That being said, it was still somewhat of a bait and switch if you will. I saw the thread, got excited because my friend is looking for the exact same board (I am looking for him as well since we know how hard it is to find) only to come in and find out that it is not actually new, but used.
