Except that it is. The original post sounds very much like it was made by a student, and not a university employee who has the authority to make such offers. Ergo, it is exactly akin to someone offering someone else's cat for free.Pretty lame response. The original posting said plainly the university didn't want it. What you described is pure theft and not relevant to this thread
Free to a good home, if you come to pick it up.
That’s funny, the title of this thread says free.....does anyone post free stuff on craigslist and next door....and when you show up they try and get money from you....If someone told you your neighbor's car was free for the taking, don't be surprised when your neighbor is pissed that you are trying to jack his car!
Don't expect stuff for free. The rocket was at least worth $438...
Maybe because you offered to give something away for free which you didn't have the authority to do?so I'm not sure why some people are so mad.
You mean like expecting a student ( who signed up for this forum for no other purpose but to relate this offer ) to communicate well when pinned between a bureaucracy and a message board full of cranky old loons like me?The other issue is expectations.
