The cool thing about Postcrossing Forums is that you get to choose the tags in which you participate. Do you want to send & receive cards made from food packages? There’s a tag for that! Cards from a postcard book? They’ve got that! Animals? Islands? Ugly cards? Yep, yup, and oh, yez! So when I tagged a Postcrosser in Tartu, Estonia, in the Snoopy/Peanuts tag, I knew my card would find a good home.
Or maybe not so much.
In her U2U (internal Postcrossing Forum email) to me to give me her mailing address, the person I tagged wrote, “I´m very thankful, if you will change your cards and send to me fauna postcards.”
I went to look at her profile, and asked “WHAT?!?,” again, as I read this line:
“Sry, but i don’t like drawn postcards and also i don’t like postcards with…cartoons…”
HUH?!? WHY ON EARTH would you enter a themed tag, if you don’t want cards that fit in with the theme?
Further, she wrote to me, “please, if possible, send a card / cards in an envelope.” Not only against the spirit of Postcrossing, but, as I say in my auto signature on the Forum, I send my cards as the snail mail gawdz intended: written & stamped.
Here’s the card I sent:
A backside? Yes, this card has one: and as you’ll see, I was able to give her some fauna.
