Well, that was a fun ride. I dared to talk back to 09Lexie over a gardening pic and got myself banned from MyFico. Isn't that something? Anyone else here from over there? :p

Welcome. There are several people here who were in myFICO in the past and got banned permanently, me not included. I only lurk but never registered, not even for purchasing FICO.

Sorry to hear that you, an active member over there, got crucified by the 09Dominatrix. Wasn't expecting this as I have just saw you being active yesterday.

Well. I have an update. I got the ban lifted by my sheer persistence. Now I have to be a good boy. Don't expect me to be as fun, but i'll still be here and there! :p

Hey Nixon. That's a shame they banned someone cool and fun like you. I've never had problems there but also never messed with the admins for anything. What was the post you wrote? I wanna see a link.

Hey thanks for the support. I wasn't aware JUST how serious gardening was taken at MyFICO and I guess after I bit into that coldinmn fella after he went in my thread and gave me crap about using one of the gardening logos for a purpose other than, maybe him or someone else dropped the dime and got me noticed.

I know now how seriously little things like that are taken over there and honestly i'm just gonna lay low for a while. I managed to get my IP unbanned thus far and am awaiting my posting privileges restored.

Welcome, I hope you'll find us more level-headed. I only heard about MyFICO after joining CCF. I also get all my MyFICO entertainment directly from here...otherwise it is just too much crap to wade through.

Thank you! I already feel welcome.

By no means do I speak bad of MyFICO, It was where I started off learning the tips and tricks of the trade and decided to give back by becoming a very active contributor while I'm still off on short term medical leave. I'm actually in a "Recon" - Last chance process right now over there . Still can't post yet but I guess we'll see where it goes.

I'm not mad about the decision more than I am disappointed as I was in the process of remedying the affront and was banned before I could finish doing so. I'll definitely be posting here though now that i'm a member. :)

I personally like this website best overall out of all the main credit card forums I visit (MyFico and CreditBoards are the other two I've made posts). There's so much more of an emphasis on quality information rather than quantity though I will say that I feel that the other two forums are more active than here.

MyFico IMO is sometimes pretty decent but they're a lot stricter in stuff you can actually talk about unfortunately. I think a lot of it has to do with how a CRA runs that site and CreditBoards was pretty good for learning about stuff I had no idea was possible, though I kinda sometimes feel that site is a bit cliquey for my tastes.

I'm gonna see how I do here. I agree there isn't the sheer amount of posts there is at MyFICO, but i've gotten some nice bits of info off this site as well. I get that MyFICO is more strict and definitely more wary of sensitive subjects. I tend to skirt the line a lot because sarcasm doesn't come off a screen real good.

If I stay banned, I had it coming.
But not for what happened last, That was a misunderstanding.
