Thank you.

I Sent a message to mammasaid to see if she's posting because she needs ot find another renter or if she's misguidedly trying to help folks out. If I get no reply, it comes down tomorrow.

I've tried to contact brickie and vay also, again, tomorrow looks good for me.

Got em. Thanks for the last one Gyre - it was subtle enough that I wouldn't have noticed it on my own.

Some micro lending banking thing..

Does this count as sharing/co-op/community type thing? I didn't check the urls legitimacy since it reeked so bad of commerce in the post.

Kiva seems to be a very good organization, helping out people in impoverished countries. I don't see how the origional poster might be earning anything through that post. I'm open to suggestion, though.

I know nothing about it thats why I asked if it came under a community/co-op kinda thing. Glad to know its a legit thing.. you never know these days so I thought I'd post it here so someone could take a peek.

I forget the exact procedure, but it involves putting a number at the end of url. Start with the top of the page, erase the last digit and put a higher number in it's place. Use "preview" a lot.

While I know about the No Commerce rule on the eplaya, Kiva.org is a group that I'm glad is getting publicity of any kind. I've contributed to it and I feel it's money well spent...good people, good organization.

Thats the one selling wigs and offering up links for laser hair removal.

The name was a cute way to hide the commerce link. Ever since Dork put that thing in to stop automated signup scripts we have had alot less fake user accounts created for the sole purpose of storing a website in the profile. BUT there are still about a thousand or so two waiting to be found in the user list. :)
