I may not like the layout on CB, but at least there is less megathreads than FT. Responses aren't lightning quick like MF, but they're quick enough.

There's also a little matter of the fact that for the next 108 hours, I don't have much of a choice for quick responses. CB is it for the moment since the window of quick responses is rather limited on CCF. :p

What's so inconsistent about that? :)


Are you serious? Do you have nothing else to do with your time besides whine and bitch about how someone on a forum that you obviously don't like decided to ban you for a week? With all those points and rewards you supposedly have, there are way better things you could be doing right now if you wanted.

Right, but flyertalk is dedicated to the "things" you like. Myfico is not. You're trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. You spend an inordinate amount of time on myfico, yet most of your credit ideals differ from what the mods want to see there. It just makes very little sense. Why invest so much time and energy into a forum? Especially once you don't agree with sometimes.

My point is that your post count is huge and I know you said you post at work but you may consider maybe cutting back a bit in general. Being on a forum 24/7 is not especially healthy or normal. You can enjoy other things in life besides credit.


At least I don't apply for 30 store cards in 2 weeks. :p

And i'm not really on the forum(s) 24/7

Many of us are on some sort of personal device when there is downtime. What I do on that personal device is exactly what it is. Personal.



How do you know that not a single mod likes my posting? Have you conversed with each and every one of them? Because I know of at least 3 that I have PM'd with on terms that didn't involve moderation. ;)

Hmmm let's see, you post like 10-15 posts almost every hour trying to be in so many threads first of all and don't bullshit about that because we can all see what you're doing on that profile thing..

Even if you are on a smartphone a lot posting on the forum, I don't think 76 posts a day roughly in under 6 months is usual for anyone. Look at yourself. You got way too much damn free time and all you do is make really shitty jokes and give out terrible advice to people.

As you know, Travel isn't always a convenient thing. The wife and I were able to get out and do just this a week ago because she had "use it or lose it" vacation time to burn.

Agree w popamode. You do seem to initiate conflict whether intentionally or not, nixon

Your 108 hours until you get quick responses comment was a bit scary honestly. Do you have nothing else to look forward to other than quick responses about credit cards? You won't die without them

Wow. Tell us how you really feel.

I agree with one thing though. I have too much damn free time. I'm back to working 3 days at 13.5hrs a piece and have 4 days off.



Do tell about the terrible advice though, because unless i'm being blatantly sarcastic. My advice is generally sound IMHO.

I appreciate that you're actually replying to what I'm saying rather than running away like a coward like you've done in the past but I think you're still full of shit. How do we know those "wife's" cards aren't just yours and you're trying to cover up the fact that you have no life whatsoever besides these damn credit cards. It's always churn churn, bonus bonus with you and it gets old really quick. Your jokes aren't funny either. Those got stale months ago. I mean the Suntrust and Nerf Plus jokes you have repeated several times.

Amen to that! I thought it was abundantly obvious that my "desire" for the Suntrust Platinum MC was just a joke.

I've ran away in the past?

My profile wouldn't support every single card that i've posted an approval for. I've been lucky enough to get out with 17 new tradelines inside of 8 months without adverse action. I also don't post about churning anywhere near as much as I used to since the avenues for such are closing and fast. Also, I make more than just SunTrust Platinum MC (thanks lethargicage), and Nerf+ Jokes.
