... about all those complaints regarding posts ...


Points in fact: People come here to look for free stuff.

1. Someone has to do the work involved in seeking out, and then posting these freebies.

2. Someone has to pay for the upkeep of the website and provide everyone with a common place to go to get these freebies.

3. No one is asked to pay, or make a donation, for the upkeep of this site.

The financial burden falls squarely on the Administrators and they provide us all with the three points listed above. Some of the upkeep of the site is taken care of by the advertising you see... some of the financial burden is alleviated by forming partnerships with sponsors who want to see their interests posted.

The price WE pay is not monetary. We need to sift through the offers and "click" on the links that interest us. If all you want is a freebie without strings, then when you come across one that doesn't whet your palette... move along to the next.

Complaining about the postings that keep this site TOTALLY free for you... is not beneficial to anyone.

    That's how I'm seeing it NOW mcpaladin, I think we've all taken you for granted before. It's not easy finding all those Freebies, some are quick to complain, but where are the "thank you's"?



    Everyone has the option to move on to the next offer. Granted, I've come across some I don't like, I just back out of it and move on.



    Thank you mcpaladin for the freebies you work hard to find for ALL OF US!!!

    I understand the site & what you need to do to keep it running. I am starting to get more used to. The biggest problem I have been having is getting it to load. The last few days it has been really slow or won't load at all. I didn't know if you were aware of that or not. It could also just be because of my location but usually my DSL runs fine.

    irishrob, I have DSL also, and it's not just you! It's REAL SLOW for me too! Get's kind-of frustrating at times especially when I'm posting or searching. :-) I just keep hoping the problem gets resolved.

    if anyone is having problems with this site loading slow scan your computer for spyware.. inless the site is being dos attacked or having server problems it should load at a desent speed.. even with the ad's on the site most are non animated ad's that load fast..



    only feature i can think of that would be nice would be when u enter the site it having an auto search for all posts made since last visit.. so when you go to that all that shows are the unread new posts..

    Ok, I'm hitting "Quick Reply" and "Submit" and it's still taking forever, it there a faster way????

    When I "Post a New Topic" it's FAST, just not when I'm posting a message.

    Thanks in advance!

    Yes, still slow for me when I post a message! I don't understand! Also, I don't seem to be able to Submit any "sweepstakes". I've tried about 5 times, and none of them would go through...all other submissions go through OK, and quickly, but not my sweepstakes.............IF we can't "fix" my message posting, I have been going to "view", "stop", and getting around it that way, and my message is always there, but if I wait around it takes forever.

    i'm going back to the original topic in this thread... and saying THANK YOU!!! for all of the great finds and freebies. i don't mind weeding through the "complete sponsor offers" posts to get to the "good" freebies. i just love getting them and i appreciate the hard work that everyone does to help me get goodies in the mail!

    huggerz!

    JoeCap9 I find your comment to be a slap in the face. The "complaining" I was doing about the "posting" being "slow" was because I was trying to POST free stuff for people like you to send away for. I can always "go find free stuff" on my own.....

      oh, my bad. I'm sorry, i didn't understand your post then. I though it was referring to others who were complaining because it was taking long for them to go through. I am really sorry and I hope you understand where I am coming from, and I am sorry if it seemed as though I slapped you in the face.
