I think we are due for a bump
Ah come on...gimme syndrome is the best part about the holiday season

thank you mass for all the plants you give away all the time, my wife love the ping flowers that you sent to us
I don't think I ever got a free plant from u or one for shipping but appreciate all the plants you have sent to others
thanks for being so nice
Speaking as a newbie I'm very saddened and a bit angered to hear that anyone has been so rude to anyone else. I enjoy looking at people's grow lists and love, love, LOVE IT when they post pictures for me to drool over Hearing that some people don't put up grow lists and/or pictures because of these jerks is sad. That means that ALL of us are missing out because of these jerks!
I'm as anxious to acquire plants as the next person but since I don't even have my first plant yet I simply assumed that I'd be waiting on someone to post a give away and buying from vendors until I have enough of my own plants to participate in trading. It never even crossed my mind to simply up and ask someone even very politely if they had anything that they would be willing to send me! I've even seen a few give aways in the short time I've been on these boards and one was even listed as a beginner pack type but by the time I got to it the give away was done. It didn't even occur to me to post or pm the person asking if they could squeeze out just one more pack to send to me because, in my mind, it would be an abuse of that person's generosity! I was just grateful that there are people in this community that are so willing to share what they have with others and look forward to being able to do the same!
Ok, ok, ok, I'll stop the rant here but what I really wanted to say more than anything is to the people who have received this type of ill treatment and feel angry, frustrated, and unappreciated because of it, take heart! Don't let the jerks drive you to hide away because for every jerk out there is someone else quietly just trying to do things the right way so that they can ADD to the cp community, not just leech off it, who truly do appreciate you.
Anyone have any more demand stories to tell? They are very entertaining
Strangely and thankfully, I don't seem to get too many. I think that I've only received one demand. All the others have been polite requests.

no burden heavier than that of conscious life. "
It's kind of gotten like people can't post about plants or mention some plants without getting jumped on in the chatbox about trades or whatever. People need to review the site rules about the chatbox:
TERRAFORUMS RULES FOR PARTICIPATION
Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.
I myself had a bad experience in a prior trade... let's just say I won't be dealing with this person anymore. There is much self entitlement on here, but fortunately the vast majority seem to really enjoy plants, and are decent enough to be grateful for what they get. I like to keep the spirit of giving plants since many awesome individuals on here helped jump start my collection.
I am to the point where I like to do all of my transactions via PM just so I can keep them on the down low
