Craiglist?

I was reading a bunch of posts on there this morning. Alot of people were bashing people asking for christmas help. I was like omg I cant believe these people were swearing just because someone wanted a wii for her kids. They were really rude to everyone. Saying that there is help in their area. Isnt this a season for giving. I didnt post on there but it breaks my heart to see that on there.

  • It is the same on craigslist where I live. Even if you think those things, can't you keep it to yourself? Especially during the holidays. If you don't want to help then fine, just don't say anything.

  • I don't mind helping people here in my community where I can see the need.......but the thought of helping someone just b/c they "say" they are needy over the computer is foreign to me. There are far too many scam artists out there. And I didn't read the post you referred to, but if you are worried about your kids having Christmas...you need to be looking for things that people can afford to give not a $250 gaming system. Everybody has been hit hard by the economy. Teach your kids that Christmas isn't all about $$$$$ for goodness sake.

  • I understand everyone wants to give their kids a Christmas but you can do it without spending a fortune and I'm sorry but if you can't afford to buy a game system don't expect someone to give you one.

  • What do we expect when society thinks it is ok to trample a man to death to get a stupid tv.  If we all did a materialistic-free Christmas the true meaning may flow, but our economy would go down the drain.  What can we do?  What are the limits?  What is right?
