Does anyone here use that Rooster site? I just signed up and, I gotta say, it seems like a forum for what's commonly referred as "e-begging." Sure, there are those who are giving away their unused items (usually garbage), but most of the posts are from people asking for things like free money, free furniture, free toys for their 5 kids, free refrigerators (yes, someone asked for a free working refrigerator)...etc.

I've also noticed a lot of members on OKC that have Patreon accounts and seem to just want you to send them money. They're not offering anything in return (Hey, if they were escorts, I'd understand), just requesting that you send them money, or buy them things... some profiles had links to items they apparently want you to buy them for nothing in return.
I'm not opposed to giving to charity, or helping those in need... but there seems to be a lot of people who are just begging for free stuff and/or money... able-bodied individuals who want you to subsidize their lifestyles. I mean, hey, to each their own, they're just not getting my money or couch/rug/car/TV/refrigerator.
