<<I'm not going to respond to any more bizarre responses from you unless you can explain, calmly and carefully, why having a helpful debt collection agency is awful. >>

Compare the idea to the seven day instantloan companies.

A perfectly good idea in theory but the conditions of use invite abuse.

I can certainly imagine collection agencies offering extensions on payments provided that debtors sign a confession of judgement which avoids the need to go to court and other onerous terms.

But keep imagining sweetness and light if that appeals to you.
