Games After days and days of the Playstation Network being offline, Sony has announced it has taken the service down indefinitely. The cause is a lot more severe than previously thought: PSN has been systematically attacked, and personal information of all users has been stolen, possibly including credit card data. Sony is asking PSN users to keep close tabs on their credit card account statements. This has turned from a rather amusing slap on the wrist for Sony into a massive and truly epic security fail that could have tremendous consequences for millions and millions of people the world over.

There are two types of people that use credit cards:

1: Those that don't have money and keep a balance on the card, and 2: those that pay off their card every month to zero.

In case number one, this is trained behavior by the credit card companies who prey on the weak minded.

In case number two, this is trained behavior by those who have either been burned by credit card companies or learned that money doesn't grow on trees.

People should learn to spend the money they have, not the money they may have


You are absolutely correct. But... Can I get a show of hands on how many people here bought their home outright? What about their car?

Who would buy any of those things on a credit card?
