We may be diluting the exclusivity of you true members with our shenanigans, but it's not like we get a choice about our avatars. It's certainly no reason to ruin our fun. :ppp

Doesn't bother me.... a board IMO is here to help others, not to bloat ego's. I receive as much help as I give.

Completely agree Fast; we don't want to lose our new members, because they think we're not credible due to the perception that half of the regular posters claim to have Centurion cards, when its well known how exclusive they are.
Sole Ownership Cards:
1st Financial Bank Platinum Student Visa, $500 CL, Open Since 3/2012
Citi Forward Student Visa, $6k CL, Open Since 10/2012
Costco TrueEarnings Amex, $6k CL, Backdates to 1/2012
SallieMae Rewards Barclay Mastercard, $2.5k CL, Open Since 4/2013
Jointly Owned Cards (co-owner with mom, not AU, used and paid only by me):
Chase Amazon Rewards Visa Signature, $2k CL, Open Since 8/2012
US Bank Cash+ Visa Signature, $13.5k CL, Open Since 10/2012
Authorized User (Parents Pay/Use)
Costco TrueEarnings Amex $29.4k CL, AU since 11/2012

That's pretty much the problem the world over. People 'posing' in hopes their little lie gives them what...15 minutes of Fame?

I'm happy to just learn something new and armed with the knowledge hopefully help make my life easier.

When will people learn that pretending to be or have something you don't is so easy for others to call you out; especially when you can't prove it. Then what? Guess that's too deep born a '14 year' old to figure out.
