Free Ride?

So here's a question for ya'all. Does anyone have experience with freecycle? I saw an article about 2 years ago from a location in New York (I think), the people went on line, checked it out and got a free bike. They only had a few locations but now there seems to be many. This is how it go to and sign up for the group in your area. You post things that you want to get rid of (for free) and people who live nearby will contact you and come pick it up. You can also post things that you are looking for. Lastly, you can monitor the posts and if you see anything you want, you contact the poster and go pick it up (for free). No money exchanges hands, no spam or advertising is allowed. So far I have seen clothes, playhouses, baby strollers, cribs, etc., set of dishes, microwaves, furniture and so forth. Just wondering if anyone has tried it out and what kind of experience that you had.
