He also emailed LDD and appealed to him after I'd said 'no' twice.

If clues were clothing he'd never get out of his birthday suit.

How many members have received emails from Mr. Smith?

Show of hands, please.

Dr. 12131 is one, LDD makes two, I make three, ... who else?

And yes, he's emailed members to try to play on their emotions, or to admonish them for not fully acknowledging his good works to the members of this forum.

I feel left out. I didn't get one. I have received emails directly form a few members an they are welcomed. None ever requested funding.

with as many here, you always get a dud or two.

Me. It was after I posted the initial scathing review, which I have since reconsidered and removed. I figured that he was getting beat up enough that he didn't need the forum's #1 asshole chiming in and chastising him. If he truly has fallen into a pile of hard times, I feel for him, but I definitely disagree with his approach.

I believe Ronin1069 also received an email or three.

What happened to having a cardboard sign at the local intersection?? Are those approaches frowned upon these days?

Intersting that he has closed his GoFundMe (not difficult to find) after being shut down here.

That makes sense. He was banking on Sigforum to cover his tuition.

Once Parabellum gives you an answer, you have your answer.

A member who believes that they are entitled to the opportunity to seek contributions from the forum is mistaken.

I feel for the guy...I really do, but we have all experienced hardships......I'm a molecular biologist and my education want cheap, but it was my decision to go into this field and, call it personal pride or accountability, but no one else is responsible for me bit me....hell, I was fired 2 years ago and had problems finding another job in my profession so I went back to cooking and bartending to make ends meet. It sucked but I had bills and was working close to 2 full-time jobs while still going to interviews....the go fund me craze as of late has completely bewildered me.

In the spirit of sharing, I'd be happy to forward mine to you, if you like.

This thread is illustrative of the reasons we stopped permitting crowdfunding in the forum. There will be exceptions, of course but in the main, such things will not be allowed here.

As has been pointed out by several members, our confused friend simply has no idea whatsoever of the nature of the fellowship in this forum.

And yes, if you think your charitable acts should net you a return, then those acts are not in reality charitable.

Consider making this one a sticky?

LOL - yes.

Once again I am nearly doomed because the witty expressions and tones I use in my warped mind, do not translate well into text.

I truly hope we don't think we need a sticky to remind members here not to be sanctimonious, entitled douchenozzles.
