I am concerned about all of the solicitations for money on the OC community forums. Two people recently solicited money and (after receiving those funds) deleted their accounts. I realize that people do not have to give when people ask, but is there a way to discourage or outright ban asking for monetary gifts on the OC forums. I love the community but it really seems to be a problem there lately. SEVERAL people, not just the two who took money and ran, have asked for help with their sponsorships or various other things. I don't feel comfortable pointing new sponsors to the forums until this problem is resolved. Thank you.
