Is my friend trying to surreptitiously decline a gift?

Question for the "guess culture" people: If a friend wants to leave a gift I gave her behind at my house for a year, is that likely to be her way of saying she doesn't really want it? Does that mean I can treat the gift as mine? [more inside]

I recently left an environment where almost everyone has the same style of dealing with political differences, and the same purpose in political discussion. Now I'm having to deal with entirely different ones, with friends and loved ones, and it's causing conflict. Who's right? Is anyone right? And how can I minimize the problems? [more inside]

Should I warn my friend about working with an alleged sexual harasser?

A model friend of mine is due to work with a photographer about whom I've heard unsavoury (sexual harassment of models-related) rumours. She's an experienced pro model so would likely not take that kind of crap, but I wonder whether I should pass on my information to her (it is at best second hand), or whether I should just keep my mouth shut (for fear of spreading vicious rumours that might be unfounded). FWIW (not much) I have met, and don't particularly like, the photographer in question. Any advice?
