    I had someone who wanted to come and collect from me the other day, actually spoke to them on yahoo and waited in all day with my 3 year old, she was going nuts by the end ofthe day.! They didnt come at all and no contact at all from them. wasted my day. I offered it to someone else the next day and they came and picked it up easy. Im sure some people just go on there to wind other people up! Good place to get rid of junk though

    My rule of thumb is if they haven't arrived within the hour I don't wait about. I can't stand lazy time wasters.

    I'm a mod on Cardiff Freecycle and get complaints about no-showers so glad to see it's not just the Welsh that have this problem!

    ive had them ask for items so i give em the phone number-i email em again as they dont contact me and then offer to the next asker..then the first calls two days later!!! i tend to leave small things outside for people to collect and then go out!

    That seems so ungrateful and very bad manners to me :x

    I've had mickey takers asking me to deliver before (and nope they don't intend paying petrol costs either!).

    Well 4 hours later, 2 emails, and no show.. I've got a load of stuff I need to get rid of. Might just leave a lot of it in a box outside and see if someone collects it.. Lava lamp, big cd wallet, paper guillotine, kettle leads, all kinds of leads and cables, notebooks, unused flannels, ipod silicon cover.. and lots more!

    wherever you live it is freecycle.org and put in your postcode for local ones...if they dont go in one area you can put an ad in another??

    Yo Gabba Gabba!

    Whats with that program....my 3yr old loves it!

    It's my biggest complaint with freecycle. Drives me nuts to give something away free and then some people don't even have to courtesy to call/email never mind show up!!

    I think the concept would be really helped by a feedback system/profile so time wasters would be blackmarked (or that the threat of blackmark would make them more responsible). If they do have that and I've missed please slap me! Not sure why they are still using yahoo groups....

    I especially like/loathe the people who ask for ridiculously expensive items like NDS lites or Nokia N95's. As if people would give these things away !!!

    Given away a few hundred VHS films to a youth club, at least thats what they told me

    lol its awesome, sit my 3 yr old down with pots and pans and wooden spoons and off she goes lol, its to funky

    I think Freecycle needs to get away from Yahoo groups as I've thought of the feedback idea before

    Lol, we had someone OFFERING a Wii! I mailed them about it, apparently they had got it for free but had already been collected. They then proceeded to tell me about how he got it for free by signing up to x and y website.. Dirty scammers!
