Please stop posting the same BS all over. YMMV means people have had inconsistent experiences, not everything is a science.

Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

We come from different times and backgrounds. All things do not mean the same thing to all people. Stop getting so defensive and realize we look at things different ways.

Everyone here looks at things one way, find me 5 people here (out of the hundreds of active members) who agrees with your definitions of YMMV, churning etc. and I'll respectfully back off.

I am glad you finally admitted it. 

I am not going to find you anything but you might want to look in this thread for one. There is no need for you to back off. How else are you going to get to 12345 posts so quickly?

I don't know what you think I admitted to, I was saying everyone here agrees with the definitions of churning and YMMV that you seem to insist must be redefined. You're not obligated to find me anything, but if you want to substantiate your definitions and their relevance on this site, I was suggesting one way for you to do so.

I've stated a gazillion times, I don't care for post count, Dan can freeze/reset mine and I'd stick around all the same.

This is ridiculous.  Why does every single thread -lately - need to way OT? Not only that, but its usually an argument bet. Helpme and another member that leads the topic straight OT.

Dan, I thibk its time to make a "venting" thread. Then every time the above scenario repeats itself the mods can just move the conversation over to the proper thread.

I don't condone arguments but there doesn't seem to be any other way around this.

I'm all for this. Additionally, each post in the venting thread should lower your post count by 5, I can definitely afford it :D

Sure there is, it is the “ignore” feature. I have one member on it and it has been working like a charm.

One could also practice what they preach. I would not call these last few post by you and AsherO exactly on topic, would you?

thats what the OT hall of shame is for..things can get moved into there.

and i can only imagine how annoying it is for new members or old members that are trying look up info in theeads theyve never seen before and its very hard to find what you want cuz theres a few pages that stray from the topic

not everything is a science.
that is true. but (imho) most are something very close to  a science we just dont know what the science is. i dont believe when things (cc approvals,decline, purchases, memberships, ect) are all done comp that its ymmv. its like saying cc invites are ymmv
