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* It's most likely not ethical.

What about flying Delta in JFK and using T4 or T2 even if your flight is leaving from the other terminal?

Yes but is it ethical to skip the huge line to go to the other terminal?

Just happened to me - in T4, the woman guarding the check-in area was sending some people over to the other row of desks, both huge lines. BSD she came over to us and brought us to another airlines check-in desk - no line!  ;D :D

Many memories from over the years of shlepping suitcases back and forth, and up/down/around those DL buildings in JFK...  ::)

I have a tenant that a portion of his rent gets paid by section 8. Section 8 mistakenly double paid me can I keep it? Should I send back to the agency? Should I  give to my tenant so he pays less of his portion next month?
If you focus on being a boss, you will never be a leader. Leaders lead people to growth and improvement.

Besides the ethics you should check if there is a chance they will eventually realize.

It's not ethical.  Not to be confused with halacha

Is it ethical to use a MB method to give multiple likes on a forum that is devoted to teaching people tricks like the MB method?

To teach someone something unethical would also make it unethical to use it.
"LESS IS MORE" It is the cumulative effect that kills deals!!! How many times do I have to say this?  >:(

My father pre-ordered an iphone on Best Buy-
I pre-ordered off Sprint.

We ordered it as an upgrade- on the same line.


Both orders went through.

Thoughts on if one of us should cancel our order?

Nothing wrong with canceling orders

Of course we want both phones. We both paid the discounted upgrade price off the same line.

Or am I just missing your sarcasm?
