This whole thread makes me kind of sad. There are so few random acts of kindness in the world anymore and now even this one feels slightly tainted and less kind hearted. I cannot even count how many "OHHHH go look at this" threads I've started and it bothers me that someone would think that I'm fishing for a freebie. Yes, I would probably have bought that certain item if I had the money for it or I just wanted to share some beautiful fluff. Believe me if I had wanted what ever it was bad enough I would have found some way to have gotten it- like selling stuff of the TP or something. I guess I'm being naive (or just clueless
) but I haven't seen any blatant begging for stuff. But then again I miss 1/2 of these posts, once DH comes home I'm usually off the computer for the night.
Once again who are we to judge what other people are writing or thinking. We cannot honestly say whether or not someone is really fishing or not- we are not inside of their heads. The diaper forum as wonderful as it can be is still only communication in a single dimension. With writing we loose so much- there's no vocal tones heard or visual stimuli to aid in our deciphering of these posts, so I think a lot is read into them or misinterpreted.
I know that I will now be very careful as to what I post when it comes to "lookie here" threads, because I'm worried that others might think I'm fairy fishing.
I hope that the wonderful ungratuitous fairying that has been happening continues because it is a part of why this forum is so special. Ok I'll get off my soapbox now. Sorry.
