    Default No More Garbage in the Free Stuff Section Please

    I'd like to think this website is on a higher level than Craig's List. Is it not? As a hobby forum for an expensive hobby, I think it ought to be. I think a rule should be created that requires any items posted in the Free section be in good working condition and free of damage. I'm tired of lazy people trying to schlep off their junk onto our fellow hobbyists. Leave that **** to Craig's List free section. @EyeReef Mike what do ya think?

    I have bunch of equipment I’d like to give away, but I’m just to lazy after working under the sun all day, to meet up with people outside my community gate to give it away. People give stuff away for free for a reason, I guess, it’s up to you to fix it and deal with it, in the end you still pay a price.

    Do you expect free items to be tested? Chance you tank with free imo it is what it is. Who's going to verify or moderate that the items are working? If they aren't and its later reported does that reefer get a spanking or would be banned?

    It could cut down on the broken tank, broken junk posts. Doesn't have to be tested. If someone tries to post something that is clearly broken junk, it can be reported and modded just like any other post that breaks the rules. Can discourage further junk posts. If someone breaks the rules, they can be shamed publicly like all the rest of shady peeps on this forum over the years (CowboyCove looking at you) and given neg feedback in the feedback sub section like any other transaction

    I understand the "one man's trash=treasure" mentality but that is what Craig's List is for.

    Seems like someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Just like the for sale forum or any other posts that don't interest you, you can easily skip it and move on. The items I gave away for free are still very usable with a very minor patch that I currently have no time for or else I would of patched it up and sold it if I wanted too. Point is, if giving away free stuff to others offends you, then you should just roll your eyes to the "free posts" and move on. No one is doing it to appease or disappoint you as I'm sure no one cares if the post will be good enough for everyone when they post. I'm responding to this post and not rolling my eyes and move past it because I just gave away 2 items that are still USEFULL to those who have more time on their hands than I do. What you might consider "my junk" can be used in other ways than what they are meant for. Sorry we can't all buy brand new items anytime we need something (well I can) but to flame people for giving away FREE items to some that can actually use it is just plain stupid

    So.... you have a problem with giving away free stuff unless it’s tested and deemed to be in perfect working order?
    I do aquarium maintenance and am giving away used/ unwanted equipment on a regular basis!
    If you don’t like these types of posts then just don’t read them, geez, I’m sure you have other things to worry about.

    Nothing wrong with free junk. Ive been looking for a fixture to gut and build up. I'd rather take a free working one than buying a new one to gut and build.

    I did see a listing that went something like this...

    $1,500

    2004 honda civic
    150,000 miles
    Clean title
    Ice cold AC
    Car runs perfectly just needs new transmission but i have an extra one.
    Will need a tow truck
    Title in hand


    I guess i can rant about the same thing haha

    I agree, get rid of the freebie section so reefers buy from sponsors instead. I used to give my junk to LFS so they could make $ off it.

    Dealing with broke arse reefers is always a pain. Besides, how many times have we seen free stuff later posted up for re-sale and the original giver got angry, and the re-seller has to explain how he suddenly got herpes cancer and needs the money?
