Don't give up...

Hello, today I was searching for people in Prague and became very confused with the new "Find a Couch" shitty surf method.
It's clear that the people that run CS are the same type of people that rule this also shitty world... Bussiness,profit and money are the most important thing to them.
CS had offer me some of the most intense moments of my life and I don't want to give up.

I'm not doing this so you should ignore the "new C$", I am incinting the struggle, we should struggle for the dream of a organized group that shares homes and experiences and offer the middle finger to the bussiness mans...

My point is that we should not give up on hosting, meeting and sharing, create paralel accounts on other "hosting" sites, like BW, face the problem, improvise, adapt and overcome.

Cheers, JM

So we need to be those who care... fuck the investors, fuck those who don't understand the real experience of CS.
I know what is to be litellary rescued from sleeping on the street because of CS meetings, I've met wonderfull people that I will NEVER forget.

Let those who want to care about the idea having their own chances...

And a message to those who transformed CS in c$: I hope you have a life full of sadness and disgrace.

Hi - thanks so much for these links. I am getting so fed up with all the changes. I don't want to leave CS, but I am getting very very close.
