Why is not okay to ask a question more than once on here?

I could see if she has asked the questions back to back, but it has been a few weeks since she asked. No, she shouldn't have lied, but I maybe she thought she could get more answers or someone who has been through her situation before by asking at a different time?

Maybe the question hits too close to home with me since I work at a non-profit that does deal with directing people in need to resources in the community such as rent assistance.

I just don't see the reason on her being criticized for asking a similar question, a few weeks apart. Care to explain?

  • it's more the fact that she asked it before, yet when asked flat out if she had she denied it. BUT... it's so obviously her. Kinda negates her credibility...

    Pretty sure that includes soliciting for money

  • KristiS, Care to explain how that is soliciting for money? Not once did she ask for money from people on here.

    1. Don't ask other members for help in the form of money, gifts, or donations.


      We appreciate the stress on you and your family resulting from financial pressures, however, it is not acceptable to ask another member for money, goods, or services. Instead, you can suggest that members donate to official charities (like the Red Cross or March of Dimes). We have compiled a list of organizations that provide help for moms in need on the Member

  • I ask questions that have been asked before all the time! That's not it.

  • Maybe I missed one of her posts, but she didn't ask for money at all. She stated that she is receiving money from a community organization, but she was asking for advice on eviction. She was in no way asking for money (unless I missed a post).
