Please leave out "FREE" and "Pickup only"

Hi folks,

Some of you tend to put these words in and they're not only unnecessary, the cause confusion and waste time.

Everything on Freecycle MUST be free. so of course your offer is free. When you specify "Free!" it makes many people think "Oh well if they have to say it, there must be other options" and they start posting Offers asking for small prices or trades. There are other website for selling and trading.

Also, while offerers are not forbidden to deliver, it's certainly ASSUMED all items are to be picked up by the person getting them. A giver who wants to deliver can say so in the post but if you don't see that, you have to pick it up. Please don't ask for delivery either in Wanted posts or in replies to offers unless the Offerer specifically said they would.

When pickups involve special circumstances like "you'll need a truck/two people/dolly", or "there's no elevator", by all means do mention those things.
