Re: Consumer Responsibility Rant
It extends well beyond the credit world. I see it from the workplace to even the soccer fields, it often is "someone else's fault" rather than looking at their own involvement and actions leading up to an event.

Not everyone is like this, and some are even selective in their responsibility considerations; however I do tend to agree with uborrow that this forum generally is better than most places in that regard. We've had a rash of "why won't this lender give me a card, they suck!" threads lately but the message from the other forum members has largely been consistent: namely, look at your own profile before casting stones (heavily paraphrased).

Whether those get read or thought about is a different issue; however, the education from the forum and the occasional lender clue-by-four does penetrate for most folks I think; albeit can't help everyone in that regard.
