    Lbug ((BIG HUGS))) I completely understand where you are coming from and have done the same thing for the same reasons. I aslo understand where the mods are coming from. I agree if there were a private way to let them know what we are sending without everyone knowing it would be so so much easier.
    Love you buggy!!!

    This thread is addressing exactly why I stopped participating for a while. I messaged the 'used to be mods' so many times regarding the behavior of the 'Justins' (that's what I called them) and no one seemed to care. It got to the point where I couldn't even look at the threads cos I was so aggravated. That was about the time I nicknamed myself 'Pissypantspaula'.

    I am so appreciative of the attention this issue is now getting. Thank you all.

    You're very welcome. One of the biggest reasons I took a mod postion for this group (besides LOVE) was to help protect the incredibly generous and HUGE hearted fellow members that have helped me so much in so many ways. It's very important to me personally that people feel safe here and know that someone is looking out for them. I (we) can't catch everything that happens and depend on all of you guys to give us the heads up on situtations that raise red flags with you. Sometimes it turns out to be a simple misunderstanding, other times it turns out to be something that requires action on our part to stop further abuse of the PIF generosity from taking place. Don't hesitate to PM us, we really REALLY want you to so we can keep PIF safe and fun for everyone.

    We DO really appreciate all that y'all do. I doubt I could do it. (my family tells me I'm a big softie). But as I said to someone the other day, 'telling' feels a lot to me like "tattling"
    I wish there was a way to get around that! Part of the concept of pif is giving. So how 'giving' is it to say no or to turn someone in??
    Ya know? That makes it even harder.. Because we are who we are. (no excuses El, just observations)

    If you don't want to 'tell', how about just posting in the open as a reply. For example, if you post in a thread that you will give someone a "thing" and then 'person B' pms you to ask for some of it, reply on the thread. Something like "PM, I got your pm (lol) and I am sorry but I don't have anymore to give" or "PM, I got your pm and I can send you some". The mods will know this didn't happen the way that it should have and you won't get in trouble. Just a thought.

    I don't see a need to post everything between 'friends' but if we receive an unsolicited pm from somebody we don't really know, I personally would like to see it posted because they may have been pming lots of others, too. We all know this has happened and will continue to happen. Some people come to pif to get what they can and then they disappear.

    Your generosity L'Bug is unfaltering and so is your trust . Both of those things are among the reasons why I love you.

    The giving part of saying no or turning someone in for breaking rules is what you give back to the ENTIRE group by outing that person or denying them another "score" before they move on to someone else...probably someone you love very much and wouldn't want that to happen to, or someone who is too nice to say no and has just given a shady person their last spare atty (or whatever the item may be). Just look at it that way and I promise you it will be easier to say no and turn them in.
