I have a bit of a hardline stance on the issue, but as a total free market supporter, in progress of getting my MBA, and working for a major financial services corporation, all of my personal aspects are affected by my personal characteristics - and in that, my view is that if a merchant is unwilling to accept the cost of business, they are not worthy of my business.
What about the old "credit card and ID"? I've created more than a handful of scenes over that one, most recently I got a photo credit card and figured out that if I swipe when they aren't looking, then if they want ID I show them the credit card with my photo and pretend I used that.
