    I'm all about SS. The address thing doesn't bother me so much because I have a PO Box... the only thing that makes me hesitant is that I've been involved with SS's before, sent my gift, but apparently I was a bad girl because santa didn't give me anything!!

    I have had good SS experiences though. But twice I was burned. That's the main sucky side for me.

    this may sound harsh but i think if someone does not send out their gift then they should be banned for a period of time or even permanently.

      I think this sounds fun; a little concerned with my address being available to everyone though. If we figure it out, I"m in! :)

        I agree because I basically look at it as being similar to mail fraud... or stealing. I always fork over he extra 65cents to pay for tracking on that stuff just in case it does get lost in the xmas mail craziness, at least I can prove I sent something, and if needed, I would send something later. Or better yet, I order online, have them (the company) send it and keep track of it and replace the item if needed.

          PS. When you have a gift registry, does the person buying the gift see the full address of the reciever or just the name/city/state? I am thinking the latter from what I remember. If that's the case, maybe if you are worried about giving out your address, you can set up a gift wish list type thing and have that the way your gift is picked. I don't know if that's a bad idea, but I'd be willing to buy someone a gift that way. I think Amazon hides your address.... I'm sure others may too?

                Sounds like you might be onto something. I agree with Jules, if it can all get worked out I'd be down. I *heart* Xmas!
