I've been pretty silent as I've watched this unfold. I started the first and second pay it forward for one purpose only, to help bring goodwill to the group. I feel qualified to offer my two cents.
The group had been victimized by two individuals, one a con artist in Canada (I say that in researching his name shows he did the same thing in RC cars AND go karts) and the second by an individual in Pennsylvania who promised big and eventually had a person claiming to be their father go ballistic on anyone who sent this individual anything.
This is all about a bit of fun but it's also like gambling. Don't offer more than you can afford to loose.
That is not to say let it go, but take it to PM if possible. Involve the starter of the thread. We all go through issues. I had a time where in the matter of a MONTH I spent one day in the ER for heart issues, the next day I drove to Illinois due to an an emergency phone call that my sister was close to death. I returned on late Saturday and on Monday was a day past due as a Boy Scout Leader at a camp that was blissfully without and form of cell or wi-fi service. Prior to leaving, I contacted the three people I had deals working with. I explained what was happening. The last night we were hit with the Derecho. I drove home in what looked like a war scene from a day after movie. On Wednesday of that week I contacted the administrator for the trade section and the names of the people involved and asked him to let them know. I was at a McDonald's. We went two weeks upon my return without electricity.
There were no harsh feelings.
Folks talk to each other.
At the end of the day, these are toys (don't lynch me for that), that more than likely our heirs won't cherish as much as we.
Remember it's a hobby. Life happens.
