I wouldn't have a problem except that the people who never post anything are the same people who ask for large flat screen TVs, laptops younger than 2 years old preferably Mac but will take PC if it has office on it and has never had a virus, (no kidding these are listings I've seen in the past) that type of thing. And they ask for it over and over and over. I'm sorry, why do you need a blueray player again? I've never lived somewhere where the freecycle was so ridiculous as where I am right now. And the mods are doing a terrible job and are quite rude. needless to say, I'm not a member anymore and I don't mind taking my stuff to the Goodwill, since they opened one up down the street. The people are very nice and even help unload the car.
"i have a freezer. it was here when we moved in we used it for a couple months but then it started to not keep things frozen. it's a white westhing house freezer. its white. nothing wrong with it except that it doesn't keep things frozen. it is slightly dirty please come take it away. we have a small garage and would like the space. thanks"
