"All you need is love - love is all you need"
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!!!
FYI We just started a thread to address any questions you may have here:
Just a friendly bump.
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.
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.
