    I need someone's reservation for the Model S. I'm moving to Dallas for a new job and my commute is going to be horrible. Need a Model S now! Please. Contact me. Thanks.

    The ultimate accolade must surely be when a black market develops.

    It's a grey market not a black market. Nothing illegal or immoral about it.

    I didn't say it was illegal or immoral.

    From Dictionary.com:

    Guess that's not accurate either then.

    Amoral would seem to be the better descriptor. Neither moral or immoral, but in that grey area.

    As Wikipedia states, "Amorality is an absence of, indifference towards, or disregard for moral beliefs."

    Sorry, should have started that post with "Wrong." as I've seen is your preferred form of correcting people.
    There is a difference between black markets and grey markets, hence the different word.

    grey market
    n
    1. (Business / Commerce) a system involving the secret but not illegal sale of goods at excessive prices Compare black market

    black market
    n.
    1. The illegal business of buying or selling goods or currency in violation of restrictions such as price controls or rationing.

    grey market - definition of grey market by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

    That's a new one. Usually you get a gray market because of excessive prices.
