I'm sick of people being too soft on debt on this website. Where's a site that actively discourages all debt and isn't scared to tell people off when they make stupid decisions regarding money?

I'm not trolling, just in a stressed out mood and sick of too many posts advising people on using lower rates credit cards rather than sacrificing some lifestyle and getting serious about saving money and clearing debts.
Bank Loans: [STRIKE]£25000[/STRIKE] £0- Barclay Card 14%: [STRIKE]£2500[/STRIKE] £0- Student Loan: [STRIKE]£12,500[/STRIKE] £0
Current total [STRIKE]£40,000[/STRIKE] £0:j (100% PAID OFF)

    These boards are full of that type of advice. Live within your means, think carefully before spending etc etc etc. In fact, this entire site is devoted to that advice, although perhaps not in the forceful and imposing wording you appear to prefer.
    Be careful who you open up to. Today it's ears, tomorrow it's mouth.

    Perhaps a break from this site for a while would help to alleviate your stress.;)

    If the posts you disagree with are making you feel stressed and powerless............maybe switching off your computer for a while is a good idea.

    Have some time outdoors while we've got warm weather.
