Not really; it confuses the issue.

The poster needs help regarding a specific, particular problem. The answer he gets sends him in several directions-- when what he really needs is direction to one law: The Fair Credit Reporting Act.

You might as well direct him to the entire U.S. Code.


And while I'll no doubt continue being flamed by GregFisher, I'll say:

Jen,

You most certainly did help that poster with your response, and I don't think you confused anything. You offered links to sites that you felt would be helpful to that person (one link was the same one given by GregFisher in his reply), and that's exactly what makes the boards so popular--helping others.

Thanks for taking the time to do that. I'm sure it was appreciated by the person you were attempting to help, as well as many others who saw your post.

Thanks!

Tony
