Free loaders in the free section

Why is it that I see the same names all over every free post saying I want it but I never see them offer anything back.

I gave away 3 or 4 syma helis a few months ago and STILL get pm's asking if one or another is still available. Truth be known if they'd have pm'd me an hour after i posted them they'd have been a half hour late. Great demand for "free stuff". Modern culture or genetic trait? Not sure.

I avoid the free section like the plague. I give things away here and there, but I just post it in the appropriate FS/W section. Then people actually in need check the ad out...

Great idea. I'll keep that in mind next time I give something away.

Really what does one expect, freeloaders are everywhere. When anyone gives something away there are always going to be those who don't genuinely need it with their hands out. I am in agreement with punkindrublik's train of thought. I will reach out to those who need it and have earned it. But just to say something is free on the interwebs forget it. The local clubs and schools would be a better place to give things away.

I agree nightcrawler, it stinks. But, it is how camoy says-- it's not just with this site but everywhere.

However, I still give stuff away because I believe there are people out their who are in a tight spot but would like to have some fun at times. We can't all have jobs, or have great paying jobs all the time, etc.....

So I give away in order of who responds-- but to a degree. I check the people out. If they frequent the free section, have sold stuff they received for free, etc.--forget it. They don't don't get a damn thing. I urge you to do the same and bring your blood pressure down!
