Money Savers Arms


Last ooorders!… We’re sorry but for now, due to resources, we need to close the Money Savers Arms including Discussion Time.

It’s not easy to write this. We love the forum, but we also have a job to do to protect it, our users and MoneySavingExpert, and at the moment, with all our resources focused on Coronavirus information, and all the team at home, we don’t feel we have the resources to do a good enough job.

For four months, we’ve been struggling to cope with the huge volumes of messages we’ve been getting from Forumites – many of whom are in desperate and dire straits with their finances. The team have been working all hours to try and keep on top of it. At first we thought it’d be a short sharp spike, but it isn’t, it’s continuing, so we have had some difficult choices to make about prioritisation.

Unfortunately in, and likely because of, these stressful times, the Forum team have also been receiving an increasing number of complaints about posts made on the Money Savers Arms and Discussion Time. The team have done what they can to try and walk the tightrope of balancing all the various interests, but for now we need to draw a line under this and temporarily close this Board, so we can keep the key, MoneySaving boards – where people are supporting each other through this crisis - running smoothly.

We know this board is important to you, but as the MSE stance has been forbearance throughout this crisis, now we ask that of you. We’re sorry. Of course you can post on other boards, but we’d ask you to stick to the subjects of those boards, and not use them as a surrogate Money Savers Arms or Discussion Time. And as always please be kind and friendly to each other, especially any newbies.

Thanks
MSE Forum Team

There are 3 men

1 only tells lies
2 only tell the truth

One of the truthful men is rich.

Going on this information only devise a statement that ONLY the rich truthful man can say.

I'm stuck. :(:sad:

    They are all men - the premise is not viable!


    Sorry couldn't resist.

    "I would be lying if I said I was a poor man telling the truth."

    If the liar says this he really would be lying - so he is telling the truth about lying - hence contradictory.

    If the poor/truth teller says this it he would not be lying - so he is lying about lying - hence contradictory.

    if the rich/truth teller says this he is telling the truth about a hypothetical lie - so OK.

    "one of us is telling lies, the other two are truthful and im rich"

    The liar would have to lie about the other two being truthful/one of them lying the other truthful person wouldnt claim to be rich.

    Ammended to say 'and im rich' as opposed to 'and im the richest person'.

    We don't know if the liar is rich or not. If he isn't - then that would make your statement (as a whole) a lie (even though two of the three parts would be true) and therefore acceptable for the liar to say it. IYSWIM :D
