comment What is the opposite of an exhaustive list?
@NoahSpurrier It still implies the list is incomplete, or based on what is known to be necessary so far. Assuming the user's intent is to indicate that the list has not yet been finished. You are right to say that sometimes items may be removed from the list, but it is much more common that the 'tentative' or 'provisional' nature of a list indicates items that are known to be needed, in the case of getting grocery items as an example (though in cases like picking people for a sports team, you are right that items might be removed).

It sounds like the real issue here is not whether or not an item can be sold if it is a key item - that seems to differ from game to game (and may rightly be pointed out as a design flaw). The real difference here is that the item appears to be a key item, but it actually isn't relevant to advancing the game.

comment What kind of rhetorical strategy is it when someone points out a potential sticking point in his proposition before anyone can criticize it?
@EdwinAshworth I'd like to note that the presence of a logical fallacy does not necessarily indicate a false statement or incorrect position - merely that the logic used to defend the statement or position is faulty. I could, for example, argue that 2+2=4 because it is right, and that would be a fallacy despite the truth of the original statement.

comment and/or question
@cjtabares The construction you're giving in your comment is different than the one in your question - I would suggest, if you want a clear answer, to use the text you are confused about as an example, rather than inventing a context of your own. You will get a much better answer that way.
