I quit listing anything in the CMP forums as a result of this ill-conceived rule, and will not use them as long as it stands - and I advise everybody else to abstain as well.

You might burgle me, but you will regret trying to rob me. I try not to get to worked up by stuff like this. The odds of a crook going to the effort to troll this forum to pick me out as a likely candidate to rob, is pretty small.

The rule is in place, ill-conceived or not, to attempt to reduce fraud. It appear to work. I have made numerous purchases without ever taking a loss.

That number is a bit fuzzy. We each have two parents, four grandparents, etc. If one grandparent had a grandparent that was 1/4 Jewish, that would be 1/4 of 1/4 of 1/4 or 1/64, less than the 1/50 your 2% means. Lots of possible ways to get to 2%.

Oh. That applies to your brother and probably to you, but you'll never know. I had my DNA tested two years ago and some of my matches are surprises to say the least.

Having had people calling my house in attempts to terrorize my family, and false complaints made to supervisors, I prefer my anonymity.
