    Have you ever been in debt yourself?
  • Do you ever think that the site will kill "Golden Geese", for example, will we see the debt of rate tarting and stoozing because of too many people on the band wagon?

    Do you have any thoughts on how to balance shopping ethically and saving money, and whether this is likely to lead to a problem for ethically-minded MSE-ers in the future?

    I really want to support local producers, organic or impact-neutral suppliers, etc but it is much more expensive.

    I'm not going to get too detailed into my private life (the MSG would kill me)

    Oh dear Martin - if you are overdoing it with the Mono Sodium Glutamate, perhaps you should cut down on the Chinese takeaways. icon12.gif

    Question: (Without naming names) Have any of the "big boy" companies tried to lean on your website and apply pressure to try to protect their extensive profit margins? I mean if they are selling product X for 10 pounds, and you show us how to buy it off them for 9 pounds, this won't always make you super popular with some of their directors !

  • My, question (and I'm sure if you read my sig you'll understand why I ask...!) is:

    Do you have a good relationship with your bank, and have they ever said anything to you about you supporting us (ConsumerActionGroup) in helping people recover unlawful bank charges?

    and in a similar vein, what impact does your fame/infamy have on your life? apart from invites to all the right parties, what other perks does it bring?
