where I get my free stuff

The e-group where I get free stuff (and give away stuff too) is getting out of control. I can be away from the computer for only a few hours and I come back and there are 40 or more e-mails from the group. Some of it stuff being given away, some of it requests. It just floods my e-mail. And I could set it up so that they don't go into my e-mail. But with over 2,500 members, if you don't reply to something within 2 to 5 minutes after it's posted then it's already been claimed by some one who needs it. So having it go to e-mail is the only way to get notified in time if there's something being given away that you need.

Yesterday I found out my free stuff group will be featured in the Seattle Times. I have no doubt that when the article comes out it will explode to at least 10 times it's current membership. I know that sounds like a good thing. But good lord what is my e-mail in box going to look like at the end of the day??

On a lighter note, some one was giving away a tarantula on there there the other day. And some one else was requesting a stuffed moose head. Yeah, the group is good for entertainment on days like that.
