Hi Alan Baxter,

I agree fully with you there, in such cases we don't need to be honest "until it hurts", especially when the other party in the deal is not that honest either and even want to profit from us without giving something in return,

Hi Alan,
Isn't it nice that we don't all have to be the same. It would make for a pretty boring world.
But I'll stick to my believes and you may have your way of looking at things.  :)

Thank you for saying so, Bob.  I appreciate your openness.  It's been my experience too that honesty is the best policy.  One of the reasons I use my real name on the web is to help keep me from saying or doing anything I don't want to be accountable for -- that, and it's easier to remember. :)

Hi folks,

Same goes for me as well, really, never do anything online that you would not do in real life, it is so much easier, but the hardest part indeed is being honest to yourself,

I'm just thinking that in Europe they may use the term shopping card for what we call a credit card.

??? where you got that from? ;D

Just from the way Polonus mentioned it in his original post mentioning shopping cards. It sounded like he was describing a credit card and what he said could be traced can not be done with what are known as shopping cards here.
