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.

Guess its sour topic..
Not sour at all. Is it just this one place or selling any nights at any hotel you feel is unethical?

If it is against the T&C's then to me it is clear it is unethical.

To me it seems unethical regardless of the T&C...

Well it is def against t&c- I think everyone agrees with that.. Just ppl racked up their own complaints on this specific hotel (at least)- to somehow make that right..

Assuming the definition of 'unethical' is: "It doesn't feel right to me", then this counts ;D

A black man has a job interview with a racist business owner. The black man misrepresents himself by painting himself white. Do two wrongs ever make a right?

What about if little Johnny gets mugged on his way home from school. Thug tells Johnny "give me all your money". Johnny says "I have none", while hoping that the thug doesn't find out that he's lying. Is it ethical for little johnny to lie? And if in this case its fine for johnny to lie, where would you draw the line?
