I'm less worried about scams here because the mods take care of hat swiftly and quickly. And I like the mods HERE because Justin and Wendy know who's best for the job. They won't let just anyone become a mod. You have to be really good to qualify.
I apologize for rambling but I'm just trying to be reasonable...
You da bomb! LOL

This is true, too. We make it increasingly difficult to get in, and keep our members informed. Anyone new to the GE
is always required to send first, and all of our members know it, so they don't get "tricked" into sending first by scammers. In addition, scammers are less likely to scam here because our Gift Exchange is so valuable. There's so much being available in the GE
that many people wouldn't want to jeopardize their membership to lose access to the goods in the Gift Exchange!!
I like how you need 50 posts to get into the GE because some people would join and try to trade (and posibly scam!) with their first post. And while some people would try ot get 50 posts by spamming, that simply can't happen, because like I said, the mods are quick to these things.
