Vouched and Reference
Posted February 6th, 2013 - 6:39 pm by from Salvador, Brazil (Permalink)
I and other friends from cs, we talk about persons asking references / vouched.
And we were considering three scenarios.

Members who request references / vouched for ex-guest.

Members who request references / vouched for friends

Members who request references / vouched for acquaintance

What do you think of this practice.

Axé and Regards

I don't see a problem with asking for a reference from anybody... though asking a 2nd and 3rd time would be inappropriate.

I think asking for a vouch is a bit different. I generally don't like the idea of short term guests or acquaintances asking for a vouch. Since I think vouching shows a very high degree of trust, asking for a vouch when the relationship isn't yet strong enough can put people in an awkward position.
