Effective immediately /r/Assistance will no longer allow requests for loans

I would see other people posting these long elaborate posts, asking for loans of $300 or more, and then never paying it back. I had to end up stealing and shoplifting, thankfully I never got caught.

I remember when I posted on here in need of money assistance, and my requests always got ignored and downvoted and no one ever replied. Never even asked for that much, maybe like $50 at most. Had to end up stealing/shoplifting because I couldn't get assistance.

Only one person helped me on here I think...when I needed $20 and I paid them back, ahead of time even. And I really did need it to help me out with getting food. So I can't say I'm sad to see this go.
