2) Are the bad feelings I have inspired fairly universal among this group? (If yes, I suppose the answers to question 1 are inconsequential because I clearly should just leave now, lol.)

I haven't followed this thread quite as rigorously as some have (althought I have read most posts), but I find myself getting mighty irritated that you got your credit rating "repaired" essentially by being a royal pain in the tukhas (sp?) rather than maintaining a good rating by being a responsible user of credit.

Quite frankly, I find your tactics reprehensible simply because you refused to take responsibility for your own actions and instead threw up a smokescreen behind which you hid. I find it even more reprehensible because you are a "PsychDoc" for whom a rigorous intellectual, emotional and moral honesty should be a sine qua non of your personal as well as your professional life.

That being said, I definitely prefer myself to you.

3) Is it typical for participants here to engage in name-calling when they disagree like that? Surely, I'm not a special case. (I just read this to my wife, lol, and she said, "Yes you are sweetie. You're a special case of narcissism. It's all about you.") Seriously, doesn't anyone here see the scumminess associated with name-calling and attacking others? Or do I -- as someone who acknowledged challenging negative but correct credit report items -- have a lock on scumminess?

Not usually, but then you've been talking to people who either never got into credit trouble or who are working diligently to overcome their credit problems and doing so in an above board manner without challenging things that are legitimately their responsibility.

Assuming you are a clinical shrink, were I one of your clients and found out about this, I'd drop you like a hot potato because I would have grave doubts about your integrity.
