Moved from MyFico to here...

Postby mountaindewvoltage » Mon Oct 10, 2016 9:45 pm

Anyone else from MyFico on this site? I'm not sure if I was banned or anything, but I got sick of the over-moderation. That place is like kindergarten class where everything has to be rainbows and sunshine or else it's frowned upon and deleted.

I was banned, and I was basically a star player over there.

Yes, the place is severely over moderated with an emphasis on pretending nothing is wrong when it really is.

I wasn't necessarily 'banned' just had posting privileges removed, essentially the same thing. It's a little more free over here, nice to see the place growing for that reason.

What do you mean by "more free"? Sorry, still a newbie.

we dont treat credit cards like lottery tickets here and even when we argue everyone tries to make sound points regardless of position/opinion. i stopped being active in any other forum really.

and blogs are just as bad it seems. i decided to jump in on a few discussions in the comment sections of DoctorOfCredit over the summer and not one comment i made was ever approved just because i didn't agree and laud the opinions of some of their poorly written nonsense articles. if the comments aren't praising DoctorOfCredit's drivel, then your comment is disapproved or deleted.

mdv,

Am I correct in thinking the mods threw out your thread about the Amex CSR not knowing about the prequal website?
