Just once I'd like a poster to say, "I am doing __, __, ___ and ___ to try and get money together for my trip to Burning Man. If anybody is interested in buying my __ that'd be great! Or if you have tips on how my ad for my services/products could be better/what else I could do with my skill set/SOMETHING besides begging here, that'd be great!"
