Were the dark spots on the top pages remainder marks? If so, they are absolutely allowed. By rubbing them, you may have just made it worse. If it's just light spotting and perhaps indeed remainder marks, I would leave it be, read the book, and repost it.

Heather (not to hijack this thread), what are remainder marks? I am quite curious.

And to answer your question, Jeri, I would go by what you think is best. If you think you should not (or cannot) repost it, then mark accordingly.

remainder marks are what bookstores will put on a book when they put them on clearance.  usually they take a black marker and make a mark on the top or bottom of the book on the page edges

If it is an older book (pre-1980) they used different paper back then and it was subject to "foxing." Books with foxing are acceptable to post here.
