Folks, I know this may not be the place to post the following, but I want you all to have first crack at what I have to offer since this forum is a wealth of information to me over the past 1.5 years.

For about a month, I tried to advertise on Craiglist large high quality stickers that read "FLAMMABLE", "COMBUSTIBLE", "NO SMOKING", and "DIESEL". Craigslist keeps flagging my ads then deletes them. They told me I violate their policy. I wanted to tell them to shove it up their azzzz. Anyway, they keep getting pulled after many attempts to repost.

I want to clean house and I'd hate to throw them away and I can't used them all. SOoooooooo, I want to offer them for free to anyone here. Just pay postage since that is fair.

Please click on the dropbox link below and checkout the tons of pictures. If you can use them, let me know. I request that if you are interested in the stickers to only take one or two (of each) and this should be for you, not to resell on EBay. In other words, please don't profit off of this freebie. These stickers can be useful around your gensets, garages, or man-cave.

If you have problems with the above link, let me know..

Great! Send me a Private Message on this site with what you would like and mailing details. I will send it to you by mid-next week. When you receive the stickers simply send me check for the shipping. Since the stickers are large, I don't think I can fold them without creasing them to fit into an oversized envelope. ** I my need to roll them up or something and retrofit a paper towel cardboard tube for shipping... Open to any ideas.

*** Update - Now that the Hurricane passed by I can now resume normal activities. This morning I went to the Post Office to mail out stickers. Since the stickers are long they can't be mailed in an envelope. I rolled the stickers up and neatly placed them into black plactic ABS tubes cut to about 8 inchers with end caps for protection. I post office clerk rejected the tubes since she claimed they look like "pipe bombs". WTF?

I repackaged the stickers into ssquare cardboard tube that i bought in the post office. I will be mailing the stickers tomorrow (Wednesday). Since space is limited in the cardboard tubes I packeged 2 of each sticker since that seemed to be to common request. Attched is a picture of several of the packages that will be going out so you know what to look for.

Thank you and sorry for the delay.

The first "nope" would have been enough for me- FedEx, UPS or anyone but the post office would have got that money.

you can't fix stupid but I would have had a bunch of questions to make that postal person answer before I would have left.

Would have been the lightest bomb ever

And the motor oil box is even better.

I told the post office clerk that the tubes contained combustible and flammable stickers after she said they looked like pipe bombs. I did not give it much thought until now that she may have taken my words literallyou too.

I would have put a 2 inch piece of visco (cannon) fuse in the middle of one just for shi$# and giggles.

You would not have even had to go far you your picture.
