Ignore this. It just doesn't feel right begging.
There is no begging in this thread, just people listing things they like, and sometimes getting them.
Some get creative, others list, but it is always voluntary on every side, and giving/receiving is what the thread is all about.
No-one should ever have to feel a lousy connotation associated with their wishes, and many go off and gift on their own elsewhere, without any requirement to do so :-)
