    that addresses larger issues than the narrow focus the comments have so far addressed.  Thank you for doing that.  The risk inherent in datamining is the reason that one grocery store thinks I'm a Jamaican housekeeper while another thinks I'm an East-Asian male courier while a third believes I'm Bolivian.  I don't remember what my profession is, but I'm sure I made it something interesting.

    Garbage in, garbage out.  And I use cash for most purchases, at least for as many as I can.

    I'm sorry that one person decided to plant a flag on your diary and make it a hill to die on.  My advice that commenter, respectfully, is this:  Write your own diary.  Control your own discourse.  And when you do, pray that your readers treat you with more respect than you have done here.

      ... what can one do, sometimes the open door brings what it brings. I had noticed that the commenter in question has posted loads of comments since he joined Kos but never a diary. It's a social media strategy, I suppose, but not one I admire particularly.
