I was looking at the Top 50's 7day swapping list. I noticed that one of the top swappers has about 6 blank journals on her shelf. Are these allowed?

I didn't think so.

NO. Blank journals are specifically listed as something that cannot be swapped here.

There is a red sticky thread up top with that says Report Suspicious Items here.  The TPTB monitor that thread and go in and remove stuff that shouldn't be posted here.

Okay, she has 14 hardcover journals (to be written in) on her bookshelf. That is a lot to write in the sticky thread! I looked at her file and she's been here since 2007. It shows that she has posted on the forums under 100 times. I think I have even seen her posting a couple of times. I'm going to hope that she will see this post. She might have come upon the journals, thought they were neat and decided to post them not knowing they are not postable. I'll check tomorrow to see if she removed them and if not I will send her a gentle reminder that they aren't postable. How does that sound?

The other thing you can do is tag the books as not swappable at PBS.
