About a month and a half ago or so, I spoke with an individual on this board who offered to swap some cultures for a few prints of mine (all edibles, that's why its on this board). I sent out prints, and he was going to send cultures, but never did. Last time I heard from this individual was Nov.20--I have sent several messages to him, have seen he was on the board at least 4 times since but he never sent cultures and never responded to my messages after Nov. 20.
I had hoped to send out some bags for Christmas with cultures I got from this guy, that is likely shot at this point, but here is my question: For whatever reason, this individual never sent his end of our swap--since lots of swapping goes on here, should I post the individual's name so everyone knows? Would you like to know before swapping? I despise pissing contests, but I'd prefer to know if somebody has a sketchy record before I sent them anything as a trade....
I'm interested in responses--to be fair, as I don't know what the situation is for sure, I would not post a name for 1 week, in case this individual has had some extenuating circumstances, to give him a chance to get back to me, but I'm curious what the board thinks......
All of the above have been first-rate, and have either sent things (often free) or have been in contact--I was not referring to any of the above, but rather an individual who has not sent anything in exchange, but has ALSO not bothered to respond when I've asked what's up, leading me to assume either he is just busy (which is why I would be holding out a week before warning folks here) or blowing me off now that I sent the prints.
I would have patience, and don't count on getting anything in the end. You have to know that for a lot of us, this is a time consuming hobby, and it can take a long while to get materials together. And I for one have sent lots to people without getting anything in return. No big deal, I have come to expect that.
Don't waste your time chasing after slackers, stick with those who follow thru (you have a long list of those). And I recommend not shaming him/her, it's bad karma and will not get you what you want anyway.
