Freecycling

Fighting for freerecyling

Is Wallman right or is he wrong?

Richard Wallman, the architect behind MyFreecycle complained on his blog about Neil Morris, one of the ex-Directors of Freecyle UK.  He said that he did nothing, not even write a job description.  Not very complimentary, I guess.

Whilst on the Telegraph, Neil is reported as saying, “We were not allowed to make our own local decisions and the incredible amount of energy that was around for developing the UK was being blocked.”

Being blocked, hmm.  That says to me that Neil was attempting to do things but was being stopped in his tracks.  Was it in fact the same Richard Wallman, as a stooge for Deron that was stopping Neil from doing things?  I think we should be told.

A third of all UK freecycle groups have joined Freegle

Whichever way you cut it more and more UK groups are leaving freecycle in their droves. This organisation that was only launched 4 days ago has grown by 50% in the last 24 hours. My last post reported 194 groups, whereas my latest search comes out at a staggering 347 groups.

Please tell me if I am wrong, but my crude maths says that between a third and a half of all UK freecycling groups have now converted over to Freegle.
