If Member A needs 3 c/o's for cereal and she posts ISO on the RAOK forum, while Member B may provide them to her, Member B is now on the hook for .50 postage. Granted, it's voluntary, but we have traditionally posted these on their respective coupon and refund forums with at least a nominal, and respectful, offer to pay postage. If Member B decides to overlook the postage, at least it was offered. But Member B may very well have a heart bigger than her wallet.
Moreover, we have several members who offer their c/o's for nominal amounts. They too are trying to make their ends meet.
Everyone loves a freebie but that doesn't mean taking advantage of a fellow member or disrupting their exchange.
If you really are in dire straights, and have nary a stamp to offer in trade, reach out to someone you trust. We can run a fundraising auction to help you out. There's no shame in asking for help.
