I received a WL book that has what appears to be paint splattered on the long page opening side of the book.  I am not sure if I can repost this book or not.

So the paint is on the edge of the book? Do all the pages open normally? Did paint soak down into the pages?

pages do open and paint is soaked into pages but just the very edge of the margin no interference with words.

I would go with it being stained and unpostable. The text being legible doesn't make a stain acceptable.

If you need to look it up, the PBS rules are here.

I'd err on the side of caution and consider that a stain - nonpostable.
