Yeah, I know how forums work. And I also know some things about marketing - the first page is the most important. And when all of it's real estate is consumed by someone who just wants to goof around, the entire point of the forum has been lost.
I just thought that adding a refreshing change of topic would be a little fun, rather than the usual "I just got approved for xxx" or "I'm so frustrated at xxx" threads.
It was probably a wrong idea - at least in this forum. I am gradually getting an idea of the mood of this forum, so I apologize for introducing a silly topic.
Look I apoligize fro changing the mood of the thread.
But in all honesty, I would give it an hour or so and the mods would move this to smorgasboard anyway. This is inline with what kind of wallet you have, etc.

I was not refering to your post - I was refering to someone else's post below yours (I don't remember who's) - but some folks think it's a great idea to put quotes within quotes within quotes, etc,. until the entire page is filled up with quotes, before they finally get around to delivering their zinger.
I would never vandalize another person's topic page in this way - I would consider it extremely rude and insulting to the opening poster's original intent.
I will get over it - and dont worry: I will never use such tactics to wreck any of your original posts.

@BearSOS: "Welcome to Internet, get over it"
Oh, I'm way over it... I've been using the internet since 1981 when I was in the military - (actually, it wasn't called the internet back then), but thanks for welcoming me, just the same.
Best Wishes !!

Lol. I enjoyed the thread. I'm partial to non-branded Amex cards...I think they're beautiful. I'm definitely partial because I own two of them....but still. I love them.
Me too! My favorite is still the "green" classic charge card's look.
But, that brown Harrod's thing just looked...blah. Ironic, since the phrase "never brown in town" originated in London.

This is not intended to be a serious discussion, We are only considering the graphic design of the cards themselves, regardless of any costs or benefits of membership.
Putting aside matters of Rewards, Points, Annual Fees, etc., I am interested in knowing what myFICO members consider to be the coolest-looking card in existence.
I will start the ball rolling with what I think is the most delicious-looking card I have seen. It's a chocolate-brown American Express, with gold accents, issued by Harrods. I don't know if it's available in the US, but it is certainly a looker !!
Wow...that IS nice looking!
