I hate to change the subject from this tachlisdik conversation, but I'd just like to remind the choshuva oilam how to spell the word "referral".

Thanks in advance

I don't read him religiously.

The few posts I clicked on from TBB had errors in them. Usually when he's posting crowd-sourced info it seemed like.
Same goes for several TIF posts I clicked on from TBB.

TBB?

Wow.
I couldn't disagree more what that.

My hakaras hatov doesn't end just because I paid for something.
Really? You have hakaras hatov to Steve Jobs for making the iPhone? What about to Bill Gates for making Microsoft? And the Chinese workers making the plastic utensils you eat with you also have hakaras hatov too? That's ludicrous. There's an obvious difference between having hakaras hatov (read: to someone who did a favor for you) and appreciating a mutually beneficial business service (definitely not hakaras hatov).

If you restrict your hakaros hatov to "pure selfless giving" scenarios you will be dishing out very little of it. Not to get all philosophical but what makes something a favor? There's almost always something in it for the giver, even if it's just to feel better about themselves. imo!

And guess who else enabled that....Chase and AMEX. Do you have hakaras hatov for them too? Or are they just conducting their business for their own good and you're benefiting.
And don't tell me you do have hakaras hatov for them. When was the last time you consistently worked behind the back of a guy you ave a hakaras hatov to and milk from him hundreds of dollars of value of what is clearly not his intention to give to you in the way you're getting it (churning, MS, etc.)

Another ludicrous claim. Whether or not anybody is ever 100% altruistic is as you say a philosophical question. What isn't philosophical is a basic distinction between a sale and a favor. If you'd permit yourself a bit of intellectual honesty you'd see that right away.
