I still haven't voted on this. I think something needs to be changed, but I don't think this should be stopped altogether.

My vote is allow. We are all grown ups; we shoudl be able to make up our own mind when facing a donation request. We are all different in what we regard as genuine, plausible, or possibley crooky. Nobody has to give or even answer. When and if I decide to give to anything is my business. If I give, I can decide to make it public on the request thread or keep it private. If I do not give, I can decide to answer the thread or not.

Allowing the request to stay may lead to a life saved or a family fullfilled; it may lead to some money to disappear into the netherworld but in that case, what the heck, it is just money, not blood.

To all,

After a 2 week voting time this poll has closed. As you can see in the poll results more of the board membership voted to no longer allow personal donation requests for individuals. So once we have something formal Yung will add it to the FAQ section of GRF board rules.

Rob .... I understand everyone's frustrations at some of the way donations have been handled but ...and this is not to be nasty or attituded but I joined the Forum to be involved with whatever happens here ...I don't need to be directed and mandated like a child if one does not wish to donate or get involved in any fashion ....DON'T but to stop because of a small percentage "85" people out of how many members !!! wow big brother has reached the forum.... not a good thing !!!!

Everyone please remember that this is a decision the Mod team did not make and we have to go with however the poll results turned out. Had the results went the other way there would be people posting about their unhappiness as well.


I am sorry to all but what is done is done. I wish more members had voted and that is why I left the poll open for 2 weeks.

So as not to have members from both sides of the poll now posting here and creating another hot topic I am going to just close this thread as well.
