Topic Wiki

This thread is to discuss whether people feel that something is unethical, not to find out what the law*/T&C says.

Any Halachic questions should be posted here.

*According to CountValentine this includes religion, but unfortunately for him, the general consensus is that religion will always be entwined in this thread.

*Hint* If you have to ask, It's most likely not ethical.

God

But from delsey's perspective they are liable to fix the suitcase. Why should it matter if amex paid

Than you should ask someone with authority to represent God. I doubt that's HelpMe.

You have a lot to learn if you think anyone has the authority to represent God.

Would you learn me what the Roman Catholics say about that?
I know in Judaism there's such a concept.

No such thing for RC that I know of. Who in Judaism has the authority to represent God?

Recently purchased an expensive piece of delsey luggage. the first time I used it the handle bar broke. Submitted a claim on Thursday night to amex for purchase protection. Was credited over shabbos.
Now the question is would it be ethical to claim to delsey to fix the luggage. Based on the concept of subrogation it seems as if amex has purchased my rights to claim on delsey. However they will never execute this right.
What do you think?

Of course, densely is still liable and amex won't claim it from them. You never gave up your right to amex b/c anan sahedi they won't try to collect on it

the question is in a ethical thread, so if you mean to compare something about his case to a case of znvzl"c, ( which i am not understanding) thats fine, but as for halacha is concerned there is no conection

In Judaism, the righteous and pious leaders have the authority to represent and tell people God's wishes.
