I'm trying to give away two large items in Spokane. They wouldn't fit in the Dumpster or contain freon, so we couldn't toss them (anyone in the area interested in a working side-by-side refrigerator or a black metal futon frame?). I tried to sign up for the Freecycle network here, and they require approval from an administrator.
Approval requires that I read their extensive list of rules, email back a short Q&A, and wait for their yea or nay. It's been over twenty-four hours since I read the book, completed the open-book quiz, and I'm still waiting!
I don't really understand why a group that only has 1000 more members than my hometown group must take so long to decide to permit me to GIVE THINGS AWAY. For crying out loud...
I think they are running a background check.
