At the end of the day, I wouldn't consider them stupid. I think they just don't care. If it means ridding it from their inventory, then they've done what they need to do. Besides, the dailies make more than enough bank if you do all of them and do that everyday you're looking at a lot of credits.
I only play to raid, not make money or do dailies here. If I need money to repair after doing a raid and don't have money I'll go do dailies then and only then. Dailies are just really a chore. I'm at 700,000 credits right now and I haven't done dailies more than once in the past two weeks. lol

Doesn't really matter what you think, they are worth that as people pay as much for them, you can sell them for less obviously but it most likely that you are just giving some one like me the difference between what you put it up for and what the market values them at, not quite sure the guy I got those 14 Neurals from wanted to give away 270k credits.

usually if something is base price, I'll buy it immediately, even if I dont need it at the moment. Most of the time buying something at base price is cheaper then getting it yourself with a crew skill and waiting 30 minutes.
For crafting stuff I check the current prices and lowball it by about 100-500 credits per unit.
If it's schematics, blue armor/weapons or blue mods I typically go with the GTN-suggested prices. A lot of times it's hard to find what the market price for the schematics and such are because typically any auction I put up will be the only price point I have for that item (too many unique names). When I tried to guess the prices based on similar item levels/type, I found it really was not worth my time as they never sold.
When dealing with crafting materials, where the items are routinely traded it's easy.
If the OP wants to brag about the "easy money" he gets from lazy GTN sellers, more power to him. He deserves the credits he earns due to all the extra time he spends researching the GTN that I do not. I'd rather just get rid of my crap in under five minutes at the end of a playing session. If someone is making a killing reposting my lowball auctions for the items I don't research, I'm happy that my laziness provided them some income.
Isn't GTN price 2x vendor price essentially?
And it's not unlike wow at the start, people not understanding the value of crafting material or items.
Although I'm max Synth/Arch/Treasure, I found a stack of 99 Terenthium on for 8k. Was able to resell for 120k (And even that IMO is underpriced, but no-one was taking at 200k or 150k)

Here's the thing: I could either vendor this crap or I could put it on the GTN. I would vendor it but I put it on the GTN on the off chance it sells for more. I am happy to get the vendor price and I don't care enough to research to find out what the going price is on my server. I'm not the idiot paying $15 a month to sit infront of a fake computer pretending to make fake money. I have better things to do.

Snagged a Custom Augmented lightsaber for 3k - true story.
Then I'm on the fleet and I am confronted with my packrattery, which I also picked up from WoW.
Sometimes that junk just has to go and I don't want to spend a 3 hour session researching prices. When it comes to high level crafting mats or 'special gear', then yes I will do my homework.

This is the same tired argument from WOW: profit opportunity versus quick sell. Both parties benefit in their own way, so really... there's no need to argue. Nobody's an "idiot" or a "fool" for throwing up a common item for a low buyout because that action has a specific purpose. And if you're willing to buy it and relist it for whatever you think it's worth... then congratulations, you are the target market.
^ The above should be taken with two grains of salt and a fistful of "chill the F* out".
There's no credit-dump once you hit the cap and anything which is considered a dump (modifications, speeders, VIP bracelet etc...) can all be acquired in little to no time and because of this, prices will continue to get higher and higher even on the most trivial materials.
I suspect that in some cases, it can be a player who has a mountain of wealth and is just dropping their left over grinding material but in most cases, it's relying on the auto-price listing which is really a bad idea.
A soldier will fight long and hard for a bit of colored ribbon.
I do the same in TOR, only manually and just relisting it. I make more money by doing this than actually crafting and selling (mostly because I don't want to put in any effort though ).
