    but FreeCycle denied me "membership" twice.  I don't know why, but after answering the few simple questions and posting a bit of a narrative, the reply came back  negative.  I could not join.  I've never tried again, they have my email address now and will not entertain my application.  "They" seemed like jerks.

      Are you sure that's the closest freecycle group?  Sometimes they feel you're asking to join the wrong one.

      ...your membership was declined. Most mods are typically pretty decent about explaining their actions. Well, they should be good about it, anyway.

      Some groups limit their membership to only those who live within their zip code or city, but that information should be easily found on their main page.

      One thing we frequently dealt with was people with wildly inappropriate profiles on Yahoo! (where the groups originally were held before FC established their own site). Everything has to be "family friendly" because it's not age-restricted. I'm not implying that was an issue in your case, just mentioning that it's a pretty frequent issue.
