Some of the same people are on here grabbing the relatively few samples that are offered.
During Nov-Dec I sent out samples (usually 2 or 3 different ones) to 9 people, using this thread.
I am quite surprised to read some of the more recent posts and see that 4 of the 9 guys I sent samples to are on here snapping up more... while never themselves offering up anything.
Look guys.... this thread hasn't exactly been bustling with activity of people offering free samples. They are quite few and far between. So don't you think the right thing to do, if you have already received samples from me or someone else, would be to let some new people have a crack at something here? Or at least offer up some freebies yourself???
Just being a repeat "taker" is not cool, especially when what is available to take is limited.
There. I'm done venting. And hopefully folks will take what I've said to heart.
And whats even more annoying is seeing people get a free bottle of something and then putting that bottle on their swap/sale thread. When FISS80 was so generous and gave away over a $1000 worth of frags, I saw one of the recipients(I have given this same person a free bottle AND a sample package) immediately had it on their thread trying to get the most from it(it was a very pricey bottle). If they didnt like what they received they should have put it back on this thread instead for someone else to try.
Ill admit I have received several freebies from this thread, but I have also offered multiple items as well and not just samples. Not trying to glorify myself by saying that, I just feel if you are going to receive then you should be willing to give as well. Im glad you brought this up BigSteve because I feel the same way as you do about this. I have a feeling that this topic will be the downfall of this thread though. There are always the few who ruin it for the many. Spock said it best "The needs of the many out way the needs of the few, or the one." STOP BEING SO GREEDY- - - Updated - - -

This is already the rule. If you give something away you are supposed to list who you gave it away to in the original posted offer.
