I just finished a Waitlisted book and would like to post it but I bought it used and it is perfect except the back cover must have had tape or something on it at one time, it is not sticky or raised in anyway but I few of the letters of the words on the back are "lifted" off.  Honestly it looks like a tiny bit of white out is smeared in two tiny spots.  But it is smooth to the touch so I assume the ink was lifted off.

 Should I post it then PM the requester?  I don?t want to disappoint a perfectionist or get a RWAP.

it sounds postable. And no PM is necessary for postable books.

Perfectionists need to have a RC, if they want a book in better than PBS postable condition.

Sounds perfectly postable to me. Even if someone tried to call it a tear or missing cover, it doesn't sound like it gets close to the 1inX1in that can be missing.
