When Markets Attack! [Link]
"One person had no idea what they were doing and posted every craft at zero profit. No goals competative meta goals in mind, just trying to make any gold they could, erroneously thinking that endercutting by 400g meant things would sell faster (Hint: it doesn't; a 1c undercut is the same as a 400g). Her presence had 2 of my BS guildies and 2-3 other competitors posting under 100g for current items that should be worth over 400-500g. Then, it spread."

"Anyway back to my escapades, seeing my main competition just logging in to repost and having just fully entered the market myself I decided to test his mentality / patience and immediately undercut him every time he posted (for 1c undercut each time). After posting I waited a minute or two and ran a cancel scan, seeing that he'd almost immediately cancelled and undercut me. Fun Time. I proceeded to have a undercutting war for the next 20 minutes until he snapped and posted a 2-5 deep wall at 120g across the board (most of the gems being priced at 130-280g each), I was feeling playful so I undercut him once more, at which point he whispered me a condescending insult along the lines of me not knowing what I was doing and logged out."

I myself have been having some fun (and good old catharsis) crashing the prices of the Crafted Dreadful Cloth markets lately. There is only so much undercutting you can take before you snap and decide to burn the whole place down.
