Freecycling

Fighting for freerecyling

Is it right to have a sense of humour?

One thing this blog does is take like seriously. One thing you find on all freecycling groups is a lot of seriousness. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a sense of humour. Well the answer is a resounding NO on one freecycling group where a poster called Wally Glenn asked for a Electric Donkey Bottom Biter. The effect of attempting to lighten up a group’s postings with a touch of Monty Python humour angered at least one other member who elected to start a flame war – and then the moderators stepped in.

I feel for the moderators, they are only human and they all have their day jobs to go to. It is a shame though that we do not live in a more tolerant society especially when the humour is aimed at something abstract.
