Begging
I don't get what's up with these people who beg strangers on a forum to send them money so they can buy Skyrim. Begging. Strangers. For. Games. My brain just can't wrap my head around the concept.

Well, there might be some humor in it, they think. And perhaps they've heard of a case were a guy actually received money by asking for it on the web...

There are stranger things in Heaven and Earth, Horatio, than are dreamed of in your philosophy.

Don't even really need a job, sell some junk on eBay, it's only thirty quid or so!

I am starting to suspect that some guys are trying to modernize the famous Nigerian Con here in steam.

That, or they think we are just royally stupid.

I didn't even bother to answers to the last one. Just reported him and hoped that someone was still awake.

It's been locked, so it looks like they were!
Yeah, it is mostly under aged children who do not have access to money but want everything. Also I have come to observe a new culture brought about by internet networking, bringing us closer together from in our own bedrooms, shall we say... So it looks like a combination of parenting losing its discipline and decent upbringing down the generations (probably as a result of tv and internet dumbing us down) and the kids gaining access to EVERYTHING without the parents even realising. (take porn, for example).

So I can only assume that asking NO - EXPECTING random internetters are friendly and will give the kids stuff....um, for free...

Nah, I can't get my head round it either :/ but it is shocking. If I found out my kid was doing that I'd thrash him ter sleep with a thick ear and make him have to get up half an hour before he went ter bed to go work in the coal mine for 2 bob and ha'penny wi'out nowt teh eat! Teach him a lesson for expecting owt fer nowt!

But I really DID have my steam wallet stolen when I was trying to get onto the metro! ... What's that? I can't have my steam wallet stolen because I didn't have it physically to begin with? You're just jealous because I had just deposited 500 dollars into my steam account so I could purchase Team Fortress 2!

but no seriously why do these people even do this.
LOL, to both posts :P

I give you the money, but please understand I'm only doing it so I can kill you to feed my Ebony Blade.

A *guy*, I don't believe you. If you said some teenage girl got money from skeevy older dudes fapping to her profile picture - *that*I could believe.
