I really don't get the "market" of prepaid cards.

I can't think why someone with a bank account & credit card should own a prepaid card under normal circumstances.

Were they trying to get the market of those unprivileged people who messed up and can't get a checking account?
Well, I doubt those folks are into the MS game at all.

OTOH, there are plenty of chassidish who are exposed to the same world he was/is exposed to and still have no issues being frum in heart and on face.

He doesn't say what other factors in his life made him go OTD.

I've yet to see statistics finding more OTD in the chassidish community.

It all boils down to the one single question:

Moving for law school?

So what do us Brooklyn folks do now? They always want a name on card
Harlem also told me no GCs.
But Bronx had no issue swiping GC.

So the fact that McDonalds may have some food that isn't strictly treif means there is no chashash of maaras ayin? That's news to me...
Frankly, I don't know. I'm just asking.

Even I've heard of maaras eiyin.
Is treife the only thing you can eat at a treife restaurant? I just order some fruits/veg. They always have something.

if I had even the least bit of emunah, including that my parnassah is set on RH for the year, then it would be rather foolish of me to compromise my religious observance in the hopes that I could "outsmart the system."  If I were going to make X per year doing what I was supposed to do (which in this case would be wearing at work), then what would I stand to gain by taking it off? Well, certainly not more money.

According to the story ^ of R' Eliyashiv (assuming it's true), that cheshbon is not correct if you're ruining your chances with your own hands.

+1. I wasn't saying I personally follow the Chazon Ish. My whole point was that chillul Hashem is not the right words for this. There may be a 'don't make people uncomfortable' heter. but that's not chilul Hashem. Is it a chilul Hashem to wear your tzitzis out? not shave on chol hamoed? refuse to step in to a treife restaurant? there's heteirim for all of those, and by all means, seek out the tzad heter. I would if my job depended on it, or even if I just thought so. But it's wrong to term a machmir as a chilul Hashem
And what exactly is the problem with this?
