  1. I am trying to get a hold of Deron, for a problem I have been having in the Huntington Beach, CA group. I have been removed from the group and falsely accused of something that I have done. I was never given a chance to defend myself, but found guilty, labeled, and removed. I am very passionate about standing on the principal of the matter, not backing down, and ready to do everything and anything to come against the group and the company if I have to. I have tried to get a resolve with Joel, who is in charge of the Freecycle for California, but my efforts have been unsuccessful. Joel knows my predicament the most, but doesn’t have the balls to step in and do anything about it. I am hoping that someone will take my predicament seriously. I can be reached at itsfuntoemail@yahoo.com.

  2. i surfed in here for the exact same reason. i was a member of delcopafreecycle in southeastern pa from its inception and we used to have the best group you could ask for. but the list owner moved and handed the group over to someone she thought she could trust. however, the new owner took on an extremely haughty moderator who removed me without reason. i sent email exchange to mike (goa of pa) proving my position but he too just rolled over even though my groups mods offered no proof against me. apparently, their word trumps my facts. the parent organization abhors flaming, yet offers members zero recourse against bad moderators. i am hoping that someone will take a serious look at my situation also. i can be reached at lmatchgirl@hotmail.com

  3. Thanks to your article I genuinely learned something from it. Great content articles on this internet site Usually searching forward to new post.

  4. I too am trying to get in touch with anybody at free cycle.
    I used to use yahoo and now I am using gmail.
    I am trying to get free cycle on gmail, I signed in on gmail but because it is on yahoo it won’t let me do gmail. That is what I am thinking. Will some one please get in touch with me so we can figure this all out.
    I have things to give away and can’t post them.

    • You can use gmail for a yahoo group. You just need to have a Yahoo ID set with your gmail account as your primary email.
