This looks to be like a good idea all around. How about taking the freecycle approach with the following rules
1 - No pets of any kind can be listed
2 - Members need 50+ posts to post
3 - All items should be free
4- At first I was thinking only pet items, but if it's free...any item?
what do y'all think about these preliminary guidelines?
many thanks to JennieV for the suggestion
(NB - I've re-opened the poll for another 10 days)
