Please do not include your address or email in your post, and no coupons
We do not allow "come and get it" posts that include an address or specific location, for the following reasons:
A. People do not know if the item is still available and drive to the location only to find the item gone, which wastes gas (a precious natural resource), increases automobile emissions, wastes members' time, and causes frustration,
B. Many (most?) members will ignore the post, so that items may not get picked up and will go to landfills, and
C. It is probably not a great idea for you to be sending your address to thousands of people, rather than just the one person who responded and is planning to pick up the item.
EMAIL ADDRESS: There is no need to post your email address. Replies to your post will automatically be sent to your address. Public email addresses can be harvested by the automatic programs that scour the web for addresses to add to lists that will be sold to spammers. Even if the address doesn't get added to such a list it could subject you to unwanted mail from people browsing our site.
COUPONS: The Freecycle.org (R) mission is to build a worldwide gifting movement that reduces waste, saves precious resources and eases the burden on our landfills while enabling our members to benefit from the strength of a larger community. Posting coupons encourages the buying of new items, which is not in keeping with our mission. Therefore, please do not post about coupons or coupon books.
