My personal opinion is that I should not ask for anything that was not offered. I have seen members here with plenty of things I would like to have. My approach would be to offer to pay for whatever it was. But I'm not going to approach anyone who has not made an offer.
At cannabisworld I gave away hundreds of clones and thousands of seeds to people all over the world.. So occasionally someone I got to know would be looking for AE77's CaliO. If I made the mistake of posting to that person telling them to PM me I would get a bunch of PM's asking for cuts.
So you might see that I was willing to send that member some CaliO cuts and think it's OK to ask me for some. It's not. It's an offer to share with a friend not a public statement that I'm a source of CaliO clones for every To Dick and Harry who asks.
Back then I was given seeds by people like Ot1 and Shantibaba. Shanti shared some old sseds of a line that Neville had worked on. Sly of Bros. Grimm sent me clones of his breeding stock. I never asked any of them for a thing. They offered.
IMO it's just not cool to ask people for things they did not offer no matter how you pose the question.
