I'm glad this isn't another whiny post about why America should be Communist. If this is, it goes to my least favorite board here, the Religion & Politics board.

I get one of those in the mail every other day. I don't even pay attention to'em. I throw'em in the trash like every other piece of junk mail I get. I reccomend you do the same. Unless you really want a credit card that is.

(Just to piss off ZZ_Topper_X)

Yeah, capitalism IS fucked!

At some point we will all be made to realise that a society only built on the tenets of the free market is a fuckin' dystopy. But then it will be too late and we will only be left with the faint resemblances of society feebly covering the vast expanses of corporate barbary!

Fine, just try and get a line of credit, which is extremely important when you want to say, mortgage a house, without having a credit card.

Rubbish, buy what you want, pay the full balance at end of month = no charges, looks easy to me, where do you find this tenet difficult?

Hey, ZZ_Topper_X suddenly appears to be on my ignore list. I sure didn't put him there. If ZZ_Topper_X put me on his ignore list (which I would expect him to do) does this affect what threads I am shown.

What then? Though I did disagree strongly with ZZ_Topper_X I would still like to see his posts.

I don't get something...why would a woman buy something that is on sale for 10% off with a credit card that has a 20% interest rate?

So it's happening to all of you?

Yeah, even me.

I guess I should just prune all his posts.

Does that mean that ZZ_Topper_X is banned?

And I thought that I was the offending part.

ZZ_Topper_X must be on everyone's ignore list, although I don't recall putting anyone on it.

Fodders is right, use your head with credit and it works for you. Let it get out of control and you might as well put your ___ in a vice and squeeze real tight.

For some reason the script was fucking up when i tried to ban him so I just deleted him. I guess that when people are deleted, they are auto-ignored by everyone.

BBG, the 20% is effective APR, annual percentage rate. That's what you'd pay if you kept the charge on your card for a year. And, that's what many people do, keep their card balance up, make small to minimum payments, and bleed interest continually. The Fodders approach is best, don't buy anything with credit card unless you can pay it off when the bill is due, first time. (Easier said than done, I learned the hard way long ago). Like Linguica said, a credit card is the number one way to start building a credit history so you can qualify for a hefty loan (mortgage).
