I'm absolutely looking for the best info on Amex products and when I see what Money Card gets away with I can't believe no one objects (out of fear of being banned). But there comes a point where it's not worth being part of the community when folks are not called on their garbage. I truly don't mean to belittle anyone. I'm just frustrated because this forum has the potential to be one of the best out there to learn about Amex so I'm only pointing out the obvious that no one else is willing to confront. Money Card is probably a very nice guy, but he shouldn't be advising anyone in regards to credit. His postings are concrete evidence of it! Just go back and read what he tells people they should do and if you don't come to the same conclusion, then you need to learn much more as well.
I'll get off my soapbox now. Sorry to ruffle feathers here. It's the first time I've felt that enough is enough and have to post about it. If you think I'm being too harsh, just click on Money Cards name, read his prior postings going back at least a year and it will prove that I'm correct.
I dont think anyone here is scared of calling anyone out on their crap, most posters here just realize this isnt the place to do so, its not the high school lunch room, its a online forum talking about credit and credit cards.
there is always going to be someone less helpful or completely useless wherever you are. Whether he is that person here doesnt really matter, he isnt advocating the best advice, perhaps, But he isnt telling anyone anything that will hurt them or their credit. It is the responsibility of the readers of this forum for their actions regarding their own credit situation and while you make some good points, I dont think it solves anything by ranting about his or her shortcomings.
You call "him" misogynistic and never even gave a thought to Moneycard being female. I will assume "he" is but still a funny hypocritical comment
I do wish he would have read my comment before posting his own, it would have at least served to educate him about the basics of the card LOL
