On the front bottom right corner on one of my paperbacks I want to post the cover is creased.  It's not a big crease.  It's only about a half inch but it's still a crease.  The rest of the book is pristine with crisp pages, no spine breaks or anything.  I would consider it like new except for the small crease.  It this a flaw that would be tagged as RWAP?

I sure wouldn't label it RWAP for a tiny crease. After all, these are used books, not new ones.

sounds postable if there are no additional RCs from the requestor...but you can check the "swapability" criteria under "browse help docs"

Definitely postable.  Per PBS standards, you are allowed to have a rip of not more than 1" in the cover, so a crease of only 1/2" would be quite a bit more minor than that!
