Maximizing value selling a working 11/34

Well, for one, I wanted to answer 
because I understand the need to 
maximize income from a sale, and happen 
to own the same equipment they're selling.

No one here has to buy this system or 
pay any more than they want to, so I 
don't see any abuse occurring.

You use the word "profit" but there's no 
profits involved here unless for 
example, they bought the machine for 
$500 and sell it for $1000.  The sale is 
a loss to them which they're trying to 
minimize (yes, I understand the "losses" 
might've been long written off by now, 
but it's still a LOSS).
