#bookishbrewswap

Litsy
post image

I hate to do this, but Litsy has to shut down #bookishbrewswap.

In a better world, online beer swapping would be welcomed. I'd love to participate.

Unfortunately, it's legally risky. For that reason sites like Reddit have banned beer swapping (see https://www.reddit.com/r/beer/comments/8643kq/rbeertrade_has_been_banned/). If a huge, well-funded site like Reddit can't take a risk, we definitely can't.

(More in comments.)

Litsy As I said, I hate this. Beer swapping is a fun idea, and services should not be responsible for what their users do. Generally we aren't, but once we were alerted, Litsy become liable. After I post this I'm going to take down older #bookishbrewswap posts. I won't disable the hashtag, so you can talk about it. In the future using Litsy to coordinate swaps of controlled substances will be a violation of our Terms. Thank you and sorry, Tim (edited) 8mo
Litsy Allagash is just one of Maine's great local beers, ciders and meads. If any #bookishbrewswap people come to Portland, ping me and I'll buy you one! Photo credit: Allagash Brewing Company CC-BY 2.0 https://www.flickr.com/photos/allagashbrewing/31560908813 (edited) 8mo
Soubhiville Sounds completely reasonable to me. 8mo

PagesByTheWater Unfortunate but understandable. @Jilly6183 (edited) 8mo
Suet624 Makes total sense. 8mo
Jilly6183 @litsy Tim - thank you for your very kind email and this post. My sincerest apologies for not considering that such a swap could be problematic for Litsy as a platform. For those who signed up for the swap, keep an eye on your email. I will be sending out an update soon. 8mo
Litsy No, my apologies. What a pain. Needless to say, we cannot and won't police anything happening elsewhere. Just don't use Litsy to coordinate, advertise or plan it, and we're good. — Tim 8mo
