    In my opinion we need to keep reevaluating how we do stuff, as well as think of ways to improve them. I personally would be most happy if instead of shelving the OP's idea we could figure out a way to implement it in a way that gets rid of the negatives. So I'm not really prepared to say we can't or won't do it and end this discussion - I hope instead we could think of ways to solve the problems that were brought forward.
    Oh yeah I agree wholeheartedly; It's certainly not a bad idea, a lot of people put stuff out the front of their house and put a sign up stating 'Give Away for Free'. Actually, I'm a little embarrassed to say I don't know what 'pif' means. I wouldn't think the idea's dead in the water yet, I'm actually warming to it...

    In regards to the re-evaluating thing, General Patton said "If everyone is thinking alike, someone isn't thinking". I like new ideas too...
