No problem, Utahtea. Basically what you're saying is that since I wasn't entirely honest with the credit bureaus when I alleged that certain tradelines had errors when they didn't that I am capable of all manner of other things in my daily life as well. I actually do follow your logic, and I certainly understand that you would consider me untrustworthy in every other way now. Thanks for the clarification.

As for adultery, though, I suppose that seemed to be a slam on me, my wife, and on our committed relationship. If you wanted to allege mistrust of me in financial areas, I would certainly understand since I do admit to being dishonest with the credit reporting agencies. On the other hand, generalizing that to my marriage really seemed a bit over the top -- like an ad hominem attack. Because I "repaired" my credit, you're suggesting that I whore around town with other women, which I certainly don't. This does remind me of a sociological curiosity, though: People say the damnedest things to men that they might not say to women. Of course, perhaps you would have alleged that kind of slutty behavior had I been a woman too, so I could be off the mark with respect to the gender question. Regardless, let me simply answer you with some dignity in this regard: Yes, I have always been faithful to my wife who I love more than I could represent in a simple bulletin board posting.
