Yes, thanks SA for starting the thread. And for volunteering to man a station if they start one. I didn't get the feeling that you were so annoyed that you had to drive to phinney but that it means that there will be less toys if that's what people have to do. Obviously, the thread isn't about you having to put out too much effort or you wouldn't have volunteered to man a station. That takes a lot more of your time than driving to phinney! So good on you for offering to do that.
For gods sake, hasn't anyone ever gotten in a yank and let their annoyance out in an "I CAN'T BELIEVE_____ !"
I have more than once and I don't think I'm alone.
That's the problem with everything being in writing. Try and picture what from this thread would and wouldn't have been said if a bunch of people that knew each other were meeting in a coffee shop and someone walked in really annoyed and said "I can't believe that Ballard doesn't have a drop off for T for T anywhere!"
I'm not entirely sure why this thread went sideways, it was OK for a while, but it does seem that whatever the perceived crime was, the punishment doesn't fit.
