    Hey Hilbert, I thought we agree that all the free stuff should just be sent to be.

    In any event:

    First off, better forum than this? Psh whateva! Guru3D is my internet home :p

    Also this is a good policy. I don't like beggars on the street, and if G3D is my internet home, that's like having beggars IN MY HOUSE! Unacceptable! :p So thanks for this new policy, Hilbert.

    Agree with you there, and the policy. May I suggest you donate your old hardware to homeless shelters? People there could get interested in IT stuff like that wich may help. Having a puter certanly helps people being informed...

    Can you joke about it? Was gonna joke about sending it to me when someone said they bought a region locked game in HK...

    Glad I didn't made that joke.

    btw that Nagasaki dude.. i guess he forgot that being on Guru3d is more of a "favour" (considering this place is owned by the godfather of the mafia), not a right.

    bah.

    haha :D

    He had it coming. Now that new Nagasaki24 guy is worth waiting for i guess. :)
    I agree with the new policy. These beg threads were getting lame lately. If you need hardware that badly, go try getting it yourself first. Otherwise, use the 4sale section.

    Glad to see a stop to the begging and the law written in stone :).

    I did see one or two discussions that turned to begging etc. It quite frankly put me of the forums(the first time since 2006)...but as usual I'm back on here(not often logged in) on a daily basis.

    The Beggars
    by Rainer Maria Rilke

    You didn't know
    what was in the heap. A visitor found
    it to contain beggars. They sell the hollow
    of their hands.


    They show the sightseer
    their mouths full of filth,
    and let him (he can afford it) peer
    at the mange eating away at them.


    In their twisted vision
    his stranger's face is skewed;
    they are pleased with their accession,
    and when he speaks they spew.
