I tend to lurk more than post here, but I feel like speaking up. I've just caught up on a day's activity. Wow!! What a read!!

I'd like to suggest that everyone stop, take a deep breath, and let some friendliness back into the discussions on this board. The usual reasonable and helpful tone seems to be missing today. I suspect it's just a bad day - those things do happen.

I've enjoyed this board much more than the Discount Brokers board. The discussions there seem to regularly get into bashing of the big, bad corporation. Here, its been quite different. Helpful suggestions are exchanged. Constructive criticisms of different companies are put forth. Support is offered. (I've never seen anyone do a happy dance over picking a broker! ;)

So, what happened?? I'm not sure. Maybe a bit of misunderstanding. Maybe some real differences of opinion. Maybe a bad hair day. Who knows. Let's just get back to what we do best - helping each other tame the tiger commonly known as credit cards.
