This thread was started basically because some of the people who giveaway stuff on BHW ask for, or expect thanks/rep in return. The reason people should give stuff away is because they want to give back to the BHW community, IMO. It shouldn't be about anything else, plain and simple. No one cares about what you think or whatever. You are offering something for free, that's YOUR choice, and no one else. Sure, the people taking it should show some love back, but they should not be asked to do it or reminded of it. If that's the case, then you clearly are not doing it with no strings attached. So, the next time someone from BHW wants to share something with the community, why not do it with no expectation of receiving anything in return, sound good? And if you are the type of person that need some recognition back, go get a dog. I hear they pretty much do what you want if you give them a bone.
