It's amazing the things people will share over the internet, that they wouldn't dare tell another person offline, but that's another story. :rolleyes:
Current Cards: Chase Freedom, Discover IT
Future: TBD

Even to the point of, if you don't want anyone to comment on your behavior, leave off your total CL AND the fact that you have 9% utilization. If you're going to voluntarily share that, you may receive questions...


9% utilization with 250k in credit is a pretty large amount of debt, yet the person keeps opening more cards and worrying about rewards. Very bizarre.

The MF crowd really likes to coddle rather than say anything productive when AA occurs:

http://ficoforums.myfico.com/t5/Credit- ... -p/4706359

Person has opened many, many cards recently, and so Barclays took AA. Instead of saying anything useful, people immediately jump to "so sorry this happened!" as if a loved one has passed away. I tried to tell OP that maybe they should look at the big picture instead of falling into the "well Barclay's just sucks" mentality. Barclay's isnt the problem. Your aggressive credit seeking is the problem. If you don't dial it back you will continue to see AA.

It's the same thing every single AA thread, and it's really getting ridiculous. The problem is everyone wants to "friendly" and "supportive", and under the guise of that, they forget to give meaningful advice

Longtime lurker on this board, but I have to wonder why you need to bash other people so much. Not cool, dude.

I don't know you, but you have a really negative view of things.

I mean seriously, kdm - you "play for the other team". No one bashes you for your life preferences in doing that.

I saw you get removed from some other boards for bashing people and it's not cool, man. You're 24 years old and probably have better things to do with your time.

Just not cool. It says a lot about the person who needs to go after others the way you do.

Pot meet kettle.

No one bashes his choice to play for the other team. That's his choice. So maybe he might want to learn to live and let live with others.


He's toned it down a lot, but seriously those MyFUKO folks take it too far sometimes.

I don't know them but I know what you are talking about in general, Nixon. Happens on the net more and more.

Please spout your fully-automatic, half-brained insults elsewhere. It sounds like you're the one who needs a wakeup call.

Not at all- as I said, it's a wakeup call for kdm. I'm not on any other boards and sometimes people like him need a reality check.
