In absence of any response from Tom, I decided to email him directly, two
days after he posted his offer. I didn't do it before because I felt it was
only appropriate to reply publicly to what looked like a pure and noble
public initiative, crossposted to several newsgroups, just like a rather
constructive discussion that followed my reply. Yes, i was the first to
accept Tom's offer.

It turns out, Tom has already sold the items to somebody else.

I have no reason to doubt that the money will end up helping the victims of
the hurricane. Still, there are questions I must ask.

Was it unreallistic to expect that the person who made such a public offer
would also check within a day or two whether his initiative has generated
any response on any of the newsgroups? My reply/offer was inadvertently
crossposted too.

Was it unreallistic to expect him to at least inform the community of the
outcome of his efforts and that the offer was no longer valid?

Is it reallistic to assume that he really didn't care to do any of it?

This was not a private drop−me−a−line sale. The items offered are ready
available on Ebay at any time so it must have been addressed to and based on
good will and intentions. The price was a non−issue, as it should be in a
case like this.

In times like this we should stick together. Or at least stop building the
invisible walls, for a moment.

Instead, I'm going to bed wondering about why exactly I wasn't welcome to
contribute and, since there's hidden criteria for the contributors, are
there criteria for the recipients of the help too?
