Freecycle: Return of the Twat-waffle

I hadn’t planned on revisiting the freecycle drama i’d previously posted about, but a LOT of people have been asking if the moderator (you’ll understand why that’s bolded in a moment) had responded, had she read my blog, WHAT HAPPENED?
Since inquiring minds want to know, i’ll fill you in.

The moderator responded probably the day after i’d written her back explaining about my bowels and how I was not in fact being rude to the woman offering the ottoman.. etc etc (read the post linked above to get filled in if you haven’t read it before and are confused). Being that i’ve been trying to keep my stress level down and I was positive it was going to be full of ignorant blathering, i’d decided it would be best just to not read the thing at all. So I didn’t.

Thomas took it upon himself to read the e-mail today.. and surprise surprise! It’s even more condescending, ridiculous, egomaniacal and ridiculous than I ever could have imagined!
How could I not share this jem with you?

Another one of the main reasons i’m posting this is because I do NOT believe a free, community-run yahoo! group should be ran like the way this lady is choosing to do so. It’s completely absurd, and now I will show you what I mean by posting her response in full, the typos are obviously her own:

“Yes, that is what you said, however, your argumentive(sic) attitude
is apparent even in your reply to me.
I repeat…be nice and pick up promptly in future.
Also, please check the rules…..things like your blogspot website
are NOT allowed …either in posts to the board, or in emails to members.
Things like this are considered SPAM and are a violation of yahoo TOS (terms
of service) which you agreed to when you joined this group.
Please do not send spam to members….keep your emails strictly about freecycle.
Thank you.

Owner…NNfreecycle

Oh no, Mommy! I so sorry! I never do it again!

Let’s get one thing straight from the get-go. This chick is not the OWNER of freecycle. You can’t OWN a yahoo! group, not really. Especially not one that is comprised of a community of people giving away their belongings. Are all of the belongings hers? Is she there to supervise every pick up? Uhh… no. All she does is MODERATE the posts, hence making her a MODERATOR. She certainly didn’t invent freecycle, there’s one in practically every relatively large city in the damn country.
The fact that she signs her emails pushing that she is the owner speaks volumes about the lengths this woman will go to in order to exert control over others.

And I love that I went from being rude (as said by her first email) to argumentative. Which one is it?? I’m waiting on baited breath to know!
How exactly, pray tell, is a 7 month pregnant woman.. responding to someone apologizing, and then responding to a MODERATOR explaining that her bowels were not in her control and that is why she was not able to pick up said item (even though the person offering had left the damn thing outside and said ANY time was fine) being rude or argumentative? There’s a difference between explaining what happened and arguing.
Obviously, someone such as herself who freaks out over a community-run yahoo! group as if it’s the be-all-end-all obviously can’t take her piddly amount of authority being challenged in the slightest and got her parachute sized granny panties in a bunch.

Did she read my blog? I think so. Considering the fact that i’ve been a member of freecycle for MONTHS (and have never gotten outside of having to have everything I post ‘moderated’) and never had anyone say anything about my harmless e-mail signature? And now suddenly it’s a violation of the terms of service? It would seem as though she read the blog.
Now, I could understand if I were posting it prominently in all of my offers to freecycle, but guess what? I’m not. My signature has been my signature LONG before I ever joined freecycle, and for the entirety of my membership at freecycle and it ain’t changing for her moronic ass. An email signature with my BLOG link is hardly spam. Never once have I e-mailed someone specifically to “SPAM” them with my blog content, i’ve never even asked anyone to read it. It’s there, it’s innocent, it’s HARMLESS.

I think she needs to look up the definition.

I think she needs to do a LOT of things. And not a single one of them is bein a moderator of ANYTHING that involves other humans.

I repeat: this lady is a vapid cunt! Please, PLEASE, remove me from freecycle for something so stupid! It would just confirm everything I think about what a megalomaniac she is in the first place.
Yeesh.
All of this to be a part of a FREE YAHOO GROUP where not only do people give stuff away, but I do too. We all contribute, there is no need for an obsessive glorified moderator to be such a cunt to people trying to work together to help others.

Reminds me of celebritards who do charity work but ONLY when there’s a camera on them.
GET A LIFE, sausage fingers, anyone with 2 brain cells could do your ‘job’, so stop acting like an over-controlling cunt on a power trip and BACK OFF and let people give eachother shit without you ruining the entire vibe of being charitable.

Oh, and no, I did not respond. It’s really not worth arguing with a brick wall. You can’t ever get through it.. unless you bulldoze the damn thing down. Which is tempting, yes.. but i’d rather write about what an idiotic twat she is here than try to have any kind of actual correspondence with her.

  • she’s probab;y read the thing and is furious with you right now, lol!! and i agree with you. some people!

  • I hope so! I’m really curious if i’m the ONLY one who got sick of her crap and said something about it? I know a NEW member of freecycle was too damn scared to email her and ask anything so she asked me instead.. and also said how ridiculous all the “rules” are. Man.. if only you could SEE the insane email I get multiple times per week.

  • You can’t have a battle of wits with an unarmed opponent. Especially one whom spells argumentative wrong. Fail.

    I didn’t like how you said “took it upon himself [me] to read my email”. That kinda makes it seem like you didn’t tell me too. :oP

    Either way, she is dumb, and a cunt. So fuck her. Even if she does ban you for a sudden TOS, either using my name to join or creating a new name really isnt that hard. She is such a tard.

  • When did I ask you to read her email? I didn’t! Your job was to go in and read the email about the cats.

    I’d have told you to read the thing long ago if I thought you wouldn’t TELL me about it.

    The best part is the moron really would never be able to guess who you are, or who I am, since my last name on that account is not my last name, and technically Jenny isn’t my “real” name anyways.

    I WIN!

  • I was just applying for a membership in Freecycle and she was rude and went so far as to insult my charity! She’s far too nasty for a non-profit to use. I offered to replace her or moderate the region, since it makes no sense to cut it up like they have. So many people work in one area but live in another or travel the whole region constantly.
