Done with myfico, apparently!

Postby kdm31091 » Wed Nov 18, 2015 7:04 pm

I feel like I'm channeling Nixon with this thread. I knew it was coming, and today I received a 60 day suspension from myfico. It's not my first. I've been banned a few times before. It seems the site is run by biased people who play favorites. Certain users are allowed to snark and pick on you as much as they want and nobody cares, but if you respond to it at all, even to say "stop it", you're the one that gets banned...even though their little teacher's pets are the ones that started the conflict.

This is a much nicer site with much more normal people, and I'm thinking I'll be here more often! Lol. My ban reason lists "bombing" threads with off topic material. I'm not even sure what that is supposed to refer to, since today's thread that "went off topic" was solely to a member snarking about "KDM doesn't pay my bills"...in other words, starting an argument, and yet I'm the one blamed for it.

I've come to realize that unless you merely say "congrats", and/or post information with no opinion in it, they don't want you there. Any opinion that goes against "congrats!" or "did you app yet?" or "app app app!" is basically frowned upon. I give honest, sometimes blunt, advice, but have gotten many PMs from members appreciating my voice among the majority of drones there. Evidently though, it wasn't enough. I'll have to give serious thought as to whether to even go back after 60 days. I like(d) some of the people there but the leadership seems biased at best.

Figured it would happen eventually. There's only two ways to be on that site. Be a cheerleader, or a mod/admin.

Sucks to hear about that. I created an account there few years ago and remember just how fake the forum members seemed to be when I was becoming a frequent visitor. I decided not to post again after about 2 posts. Overall just an awful site with idiotic forum members.
I believe they did you a favor. You can think of it as a blessing in disguise.

Give your honest opinions long enough and it's pretty easy to get banned!

Questioning mods is also a fast track to getting banned there. The chinese have more freedom. ;)

I'm feeling left out without getting a ban or timeout. :cool:

I am very sorry to hear this. I went to look over the post you mentioned,,my questions are have you heard if the person who said that about you was also banned? Anyone w/ eyes could see that person should have banned if anyone should have,not to mention that zoom character and many others...like I said be4 , I enjoyed reading voices of reason that don't always follow the status quo b/c some of us actually want to hear the other perspective to app,app,.. Obviously there are pros and cons to situations, so why would a place that claims to inform stiffle folks from gaining all the info they can get? Sadily I remember when I joined that forum it wasn't that ridiculous you could actually learn something besides trying to short the system,, now majority you see is everybody wanting to start off w/ sky high limits, SCT, CLI,calling EO and complaining about how bad the banks suck upon denials. Then if someone has the nerve to say what is your score,any baddies,inquires,wait,give it time,or work on your file that's it..

I don't know if the other person was banned. My guess is probably not, because that person is a typical myfico "teacher's pet" with 70k limits that everyone aspires to be like (although I personally think they are full of BS but what do I know).

MF encourages people to be entitled and very unreasonable...for example, calling the JP Morgan Priority Line when you hold a $500 Freedom is more than a little ridiculous lol but we see it all the time on there

I think the most ridiculous part of it all is that it is FICO itself.

I don't know how associated with FICO the forum is, but more than any other as far as I understand it... I don't understand how they condo allow the absurdities that occur over there to continue. It just seems to counterintuitive...
