Graduating at the end of this month, and am planning a trip to Cali. Please, if you can donate that would be excellent. If not, share or tweet it .

You are awesome

      Well, it's not specifically against the rules. I suspect that's just because it never occurred to us that someone would come into a business forum asking random strangers for handouts for a vacation to Disneyworld.

      I like the Krispy Kreme suggestion. Has a better chance of working than this idea...

        If nothing else, you gotta admire the dude's chutzpah.

    Are you serious, dude? Pay for your vacation? LMAO. I'm out of here. This is something I could get my first ban over.

    OP: why don't you offer something of value in exchange for donations? Something you don't have to put a lot of your time into more than once, like a report?

    It's all well and good to have a goal, but "the huge world will" NOT "come round" to you like Emerson said it will when you want something for nothing.

    This is not the way to ask for donations. I want to go on vacation too. But the way you ask is same as asking people outside for money. Even people outside sing or do some activity in order to earn something. Your excuse is not well. People ask for money to get food. You should find something else or offer something to get this donation.

      I prefer to think of this one as a brief time-out. A little space to think, as it were.

    No need to explain yourself. If I had your power, half the people I see on these forums would be banned. Bwahaha.

      Justin,

      The only reason for the ban, rather than just deleting the post, is to discourage others from seeing it and thinking this is the place to ask for handouts.

      Bans aren't punishments. They're messages, and usually not for the people who get them.

    lol ... first time I've seen someone with the guts to ask people to fund their vacation to Disneyland on a business forum. I reported it, but in hindsight, I'm glad it wasn't deleted. Reading the responses is an education for all in what might not be a good idea to try.

      Probably wouldn't see him again for a while anyway.

      Looks like his last posts were in 2011 - and then 4 posts 2 minutes apart today...leading up to this one.

      I guess it comes under the heading of "doesn't hurt to ask"....:rolleyes:
