PSA: original thread by @TC
This is the time of year when returning flakers show up - often with new profiles. We always see an increase in their return in September, October, and November. Many of them have learned to get an early start on establishing a "legitimate" profile before the big holiday package swaps get started. They join a bunch of Type 1 and 2 swaps in the fall, get some good ratings, and then go flakey on the Christmas swaps.
Hosts would be wise to carefully check new profiles, and consider limiting package swaps or high dollar gift swaps to swappers with 20 or more Type 3 ratings.
Swappers should be careful about joining Christmas swaps with no rating requirement and of course always check your host's ratings, too.
The mail in my area has been unusually slow for some reason. If you don't get something from me by the due date please let me know asap.
@satinification has taken over the pass it on sticker notecard swap. Please see her profile to join.
Hi, my name is Flo, I live in the U.S., in Virginia, very close to Washington, DC. I am retired and live alone with 4 cats. Yes, I guess I am the typical crazy cat lady lol. I love art, mostly sketching. I used to be able to draw when I was younger but have lost that skill. Trying to gain it back. I have been on the bot for a while now and it's my new home.
Music: I like old-school pop music and country from the 1970's and '80s.
Books: Love anything from the horror genre, Stephen King, Edgar Allen Poe, HP Lovecraft, and Shirley Jackson.
I like to watch historical documentaries. Anything involving ancient Rome, Egypt, China, etc. I find fascinating. I also watch a lot of real life crime shows particularly those on Investigation Discovery. I am also an X-Files and MST3K fan.
