Subject: Your horrible, recurring errors
You don’t have to say it—I know: I’m overplaying my hand. But I’m going to make another prediction because you are being Cavalier.
Your website states, “Now when prospective employers vet job candidates, there are two things they’ll likely check on to see if you’d be a responsible employee: 1) your references, and 2) your credit score.”
(I won’t say that you should have used the Comic Sans font because this is not funny.)
That claim is not true. In fact, it is, flat-out, false. Look at the correction Dan Gilbert made earlier this year after I only mentioned an error on quizzle.com. The problem with that childish disappearing act is the URL: http://www.quizzle.com/blog/2012/04/employers-are-checking-credit-scores-are-you-ready/.
This time, let’s try something different.
You say that you want guest posts. Now, I don’t participate in that nonsense because it only seems like a disingenuous effort—one to juice-up search rankings for the guest and the host (I think they call it “link spam”). But because this is an Ohio thing, I’m going to make an exception to my own high-minded principles.
Here is my first post:
Employers do not use credit scores. I looked into it.

Your guidelines say that the post must have not been published on another website, so you will have to make an exception. But this is an extraordinary circumstance: 1) it involves your credibility, 2) it has serious consequences, and 3) I’m right and you’re wrong. Perhaps the shock of having to admit your failure by publishing that junk will stop you pipsqueaks from spreading the most persistent falsity about credit scores again.
I’m shooting 100% on predictions, and I’m making another one, Sports Fans. I predict that you will make another correction.
I may be wrong, but I doubt it.
