I've been reading some yahoo articles the past couple of days and they've been posting quite a few about credit cards and I think it's all BS. Especially with the comments in the bottom part there is this whole "us against them" fight where you can either live this great life where you always use cash or continue to be a "slave to the banks." I think someone made it quite clear when they said it's not the credit card or the loans that is bad only the irresponsible person that decides to use it.
Wells Fargo Platinum 2.100 (5/2011-cld 7/12/14)
AmEx Platinum (6/12)
Barclays Apple (6/12)
AMEX Gold Delta (5/13)
Marriott Rewards (7/14)

My credit score :cool:
EQ: unknown
EX: 762
TU: 752

I first saw this article on BusinessInsider. This, along with a few other recent articles, made me swear to never go on BI again. Also because they keep emailing updates every week, I cannot unsubscribe and I cannot report spam.

Leave it to Yahoo. They really suck. They put out the most stupid things there.

Anyway I posted stuff in there trying to educate them but they won't listen, I'm sure.

The only good thing I look forward to after reading the article is the comment section.

Tell me about it Gamma. Some of them I read just for the comments. I can guarantee you any news article with something about millions of years ago you get these fruitcakes popping up screaming God only created everything a couple of thousand years ago and you will go to hell for this blasphemy and blah blah blah. It's entertaining as long as you don't take it seriously, and I assume it HAS to be troll posting I mean no one can really be that ignorant right?

And that is why I read the comments lol. I get a good laugh at stuff people have to say. Most of the time, it's just plain stupid.
