I know over here on craigs list(gumtree's u.s. equivelent) they have a barter section...does gumtree?



In theory we have craigslist in the uk, just no one uses it. Barter isn't really done in the uk for some reason i've never understood.


Yet it is the greatest system there is.

We still do it a lot here in the sticks, but it would be great to spread it back to the whole of society. The social interaction really enhances life, it builds a fabric that is otherwise lost long ago.

I agree, builds a lot of social skills that are severely lacking these days. Although thats online isnt it. And when you try it in pretty much any shop, they just look at you funny.
There was one shop i tried it in, he was happy to offer discount if i bought more. I assume he was indian or similar, of which the cultures still have this sort of thing.
