It annoys me when other, usually Friendly civs come to me on their turn cycle and rquest that I GIVE them some of my Luxuries or cash. Particularly when I've just checked Diplomatic Relationships and see that they have several thousand gold in the Treasury, and an income of 20, 30, 40 or more gpt. Makes me feel like I'm being scammed. Would be nice to be able to counter with, "I can't afford to just give that stuff away. But perhaps I could sell it to you for _________."
