My opinion on the corporatization of Couchsurfing

Don’t pay to get verified: CS is a <a href=”http://www.opencouchsurfing.org/”>corporate scheme</a> that posed as a dedicated non-profit for many years, only to turn around and monetize on all the volunteers’ free labor for the website. You’re already paying for it with <a href=”http://www.couchsurfing.org/group_read.html?gid=7621&post=13000298″>your information</a> — don’t give them anything more!<br /><br />Instead, you can support <a href=”http://www.bewelcome.org/members/asere/en”>BeWelcome.org</a&gt; – the all-volunteer-run, not-for-profit alternative to (the now for-profit) Couchsurfing.com.
