    I'm still waiting to have my badges recycled to someone that wants them.
    Then (maybe) I will be due this badge ...

    I am a savvy shopper, as I think most are who post on here. Next item I might post a link what I find to get a new shiny badge

    I tried the MegaShop Bot (never knew it existed) but didn't think much to it, maybe you have to give it a chance.

    Now I've got another badge I need to get rid of.

    Hmmm ... Are these badges made of iron?
    Can I get a scrap-metal dealer to take them off my hands?

    I remember taking a similar anti-badge stance on another forum in a galaxy far far away etc etc.

    Every time I logged on; every time I posted I was bombarded with information about badges, requests to accept or reject badges or just generally DO SOMETHING other than just post.

    If you're not getting any of that, and just have to remember that you have chosen to be anti-badge, and remember to be resolutely so - and to post regular reminders to others that you are 'fighting' for your unchallenged right to be anti-badge...

    Boy do you have it lucky!

    Maybe there should be a badge for 'signatures'. For example I like Suki's

    if you lend someone 20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it

    Thinking my own will be "all I did was panic".

    As i won a MSE Competition from the Competition Time Board, could i please have an "I won" badge?

    I'm also long overdue for a recycling badge. I've been recycling before recycling became fashionable and I'm currently recycling plastic for charity. In fact, I'm always recycling plastic for one cause or another.
    Fred - Where's your get up and go?

    Barney - It just got up and went.

    There's no answer to that one, you're in a no win situation?

    But i promise I'll take good care of it.

    Until i recycle it, too

    EDIT - I've received your recycling badge. Thanks Mandelbrot, (except you still have it, too).

    I didn't receive the "I won" badge for winning an MSE competition, though.

    I'll just have to be happy with the prize?

    Maybe MSE Badger was half asleep?

    Hi Andrea, many thanks for the 30 cashback from the MSE Cheap Energy Club. Now brings my energy bills to 480 p.a.
    Didn't realise there was an energy badge and very impressed with all I read about the moneysaving forums.
    So many badges so little time.
