Comment Re:I have no debt and a hefty savings account (Score 1) 386

oddly enough, according to credit reporting documents, having ANY debt at all hurts my score. This includes, for example, $25 charged before my statement arrives ( I pay everything off every month).
That stupid $25 counts as "debt" and thus supposedly counts against me.
I guess I could overpay, but if you continually do that, they eventually get tired of it and issue a credit check ( I had this happen once).

Not really.
Loser has an s sound similar to a Z, while Looser has an s sound more similar to an S. IE: Loo - zer and Loo-sir.

I do have to agree that everytime I see "looser" instead of "loser", my teeth ache.
