I'm not going to do something rash and delete my profile, but I'm tempted to.
Sorry Hanna, I was a little shocked by the responses you got. I guess on FB it would have been one thing, but here, among friends, well...
Hanna, my only thought is that he must have thought it to be some sort of joke since it was on Warped.
I too was shocked to see that first reply.
At best a reply in green texts should have been used.
I was really shocked at the nasty responses. I honestly cannot see how anyone could have taken this as a joke,even if it was in warped. Warped is PRIVATE,which would make it a good place for such a request....or I would have assumed. L
Perhaps... but it is still WARPED, a place I seldom visit (almost never). And this demonstrates a weakness in the G's structure...Technically, there is no private "serious" area within the forum. So the placement combined with the subject "Crowd Funding" could evoke questionable responses. Keep in mind that crowd funding is a relatively new and not always accepted means of creating start-up funds (non-traditional)... so I can see the confusion.
Regardless... Good luck with your drive Hanna and best wishes in achieving your goals.
Hanna, I too was baffled. The only thing I can chalk it up to...in my efforts to figure it out, or figure people out, is this. Your wit and humor are rare, perhaps people thought you were joking. Or they did not get the raw honesty of your request. Perhaps because of you whacky Hanna style rewards were so very playful, they did not take your pleas as serious.
Also, to me you appear so strong, so invincible, so "I can eat roofing nails for breakfast if I wanted" that you being vulnerable seemed out of sync with your perceived strength.
I am pretty good at reading people, but I learned something new about you. But, reading the thread up to the point that you simply said "serious", I saw how it hurt you. I hope they all give ya $$, and then some more and then you think about forgiving them.
Stay strong kitten, in tough times it is all we have.
