    And write a diary on it because it worked for her.  Are you having mortgage problems?

    Are you about to lose your home?

    Did you apply for HAMP and was turned down?

    Or are you gainfully employed, and able to pay your mortgage?

    Who are you to dismiss this story just because you want to bitch?

      I'm dismissing it as a diary.  It doesn't provide any evidence that anyone is being helped except the diarist.  It provides zero information regarding whether the HAMP program is effective, though it implies that it is.

      In actuality, as the links I provided attest, the HAMP program isn't working particularly well.  It is slow and over half the people who applied have been rejected.

        You don't get to determine what is worthy of a diary.  If you don't like this one, simply stop posting in it.  Simple.  

        The HAMP program has worked for those individual who it worked for.  So that kills the argument that it doesn't work or particularly well.

        Especially since without a HAMP program, things would have been much worse.

        Now.

        I'm not speaking to you anymore because you are being intellecturally dishonest and trollish in behavior.

        Have a Merry Christmas, if you even know what being 'merry' is.

          Applicants isn't a failure even if it isn't a resounding success.  I've known several people who have been denied and I wasn't really surprised.  They were gaming the program and didn't clearly qualify.
