Not yes, but Hell yes. I've got so much stuff piling up around here

vote-for8vote-against

I have to think about this a bit. My goal of de-crappifying is dampened considerably if I send mine away but get more back.

vote-for10vote-against

I am ready to give some crap to someone.

vote-for8vote-against

@magic cave: Something I have done in the past would be to pair you up with someone that just wants crap but doesn't want to give any in return. You can always drop your name in and I can see what I can do.

Likewise however you would have to be content with the shipping charges knowing that you will not get anything but the satisfaction of sending crap away.

@thunderthighs: I appreciate you saving those, I worked pretty hard. Maybe someday I'll get a true BOC experience to remember. (aside from the Deal Hunter BOC I won) For now, the Wootizen exchange will have to ease my sadness.

Are you spying on me?!?! I have been doing the spring cleaning thing and tossing likely items in a uhm, well, box. It even crossed my mind to start a similar thread. I might need to get my tinfoil hat dusted off.

vote-for2vote-against

@thunderthighs: any chance you can remove the chat tag. This is a big deal and should be on the popular tag. Let's be honest, armpit stain removal should be chat, as should picking hard drives. Neither are really deal related...even favorite war movie was on popular. I'm insulted to get a chat tag.

vote-for1vote-against

@studerc: sorry but we have pretty firm guidelines on what is chat and what isn't. If it could spawn someone posting a deal, then it's not chat. The armpit one could have triggered deals on cleaning stuff.

Yours is great and wonderful for the community but it is properly tagged as chat.

vote-for4vote-against

@thunderthighs: Maybe I don't have enough crap to fill a box and now am hoping for a deal on crap to be posted!

vote-for3vote-against

I'm in! I was wandering around the house yesterday thinking I have to get rid of this crap. What perfect timing!

vote-for2vote-against

@ceagee: I am a person that fights for principle. The fact of the matter is that woot is hypocritical. Here we are trying to promote community and yet the "rules" put us down. We are the community, we should have the power...it said so as the top line of the deals.woot page once. True story.

vote-for4vote-against

Count me in! Thanks @studerc! My email to you is on the way!

vote-for6vote-against

Just a thought, if turnout seems to be low because we aren't on the page with the "popular" kids, can someone send a shoutout to past participants who might not have seen this and signed up? I don't know who else is missing, but I haven't seen anything posted here from @beybei, for example.

vote-for8vote-against

@belyndag: "Not on the page with the popular kids" - ha! Welcome to my life! Isn't that why we're hanging out here in the first place and not wasting time on Facebook?

Shout outs - let's see, who's missing? @cowboydann was my exchange partner last time and he sent really good crap. Let's send @xarous some crap. Where's @conanthelibrarian? I know @barnabee is sitting on some good crap, too! Hey @omnichad - can you spell CARP?

vote-for7vote-against

@hot72chev: Thanks for the tag. We would totally be down for some crappage, both sending and receiving. It doesn't have to be a near by person either East Coast to West Coast could be fun.

vote-for7vote-against

barnabee is going to have to sit this one out (although I do have some mighty fine crap stashed here and there and everywhere). My mom is a little under the weather and I'm having to deal with doctors and the hospital, so right now I'm not home enough to rassle up a box. But never fear, I do have my little laptop with me, so I'm still able to make hit and miss comments. :)

Thanks for thinking of me @hot72chev!

vote-for8vote-against

@barnabee: Oh, dear. I hope your mom will be feeling better soon. Frankly, I have spent the last two months shuttling between my MIL having surgery and rehab here in town and my mom in and out of the hospital back in my home town 2.5 hours from here. I've been hit or miss online, too. Withdrawal is hell. Looking forward to a BOC exchange to boost my spirits! Sorry you can't participate this time around, sweetie. Keeping you in my prayers.

vote-for7vote-against

@belyndag: Prayers are very welcome. I'm not sure how this is going to turn out.

vote-for7vote-against

@barnabee: PM me if you need to vent. Keep me posted!

vote-for6vote-against

@hot72chev: Thanks for the shout out! I am going to have to pass this time around. Hopefully next time I can participate.

vote-for5vote-against

@barnabee: I'm sort of in the same boat. Only it's chronic here. As much as I would like to be in on it, I can't promise I would be able to get it done...... Maybe I should start making one up for the next time !

Good wishes for your mom being sent. For you too.

vote-for6vote-against

in for one :)

Let the crap exchange begin!

vote-for5vote-against

@ceagee and @barnabee: Chronic here, too, for nearly 29 years. Long story. We should start our own support group. Blessings to all.

vote-for6vote-against

@belyndag: @ceagee: 10 year member here (belynda, 29 yrs? How do you manage?). It is very wearing, isn't it, being a caregiver for an aging parent(s). May each of us have the strength to do what needs to be done.

vote-for4vote-against

Heh, maybe we can have different colored circles by our names for each caregiving decade.

vote-for4vote-against

@studerc: Sorry for hijacking the conversation about a BOC exchange!

@belyndag: @ceagee: I think I'll start a discussion about caring for aging/ill parents or other family members. I've been thinking about this for years but have been hesitant to bring up something so stressful here, but since I don't seem to be along here, maybe it will help (well, help ME if no one else!). I know it will never hit the front page, and no one might want to join the conversation, but I could certainly use the opportunity to find out how others deal with such things.

vote-for3vote-against

In for 3! Thanks for running this again.

vote-for2vote-against

I never received my info.......

vote-for2vote-against

I was coming here state the exact same thing and make sure I hadn't missed the boat somehow.

vote-for4vote-against

Hey everyone. I am currently working on purchasing my first home. That coupled with the end of the school year and getting paperwork in order delayed me quite a bit. Info will be sent out in the next day or so. Thanks for your patience!

vote-for2vote-against

@studerc: Glad for the update. I was afraid I had just emailed the wrong address or something. Congratulations on home ownership! I look forward to the exchange, but I'm not in a hurry.

vote-for3vote-against

Just looked around.......I'm going to need a bigger box!

vote-for1vote-against

@studerc: Just checking in to see if the Wootizen BOC exchange is going to happen. I'm packing up stuff for a charity rummage sale and will just donate a of my stuff if we can't get the exchange going now.

Also, hope the house buying is going well!!
