    A drawing of a spider, you say….

    Seriously, can this be my new catchphrase? Can I be the “I-didn’t-do-it boy” of Consumerist?

    I am going to go out and purchase two $10,000 cameras with my high interest credit card and pay only the minimum balance. In a few months, when I am homeless and my fancy cameras are no longer the latest greatest technology I will take a picture of myself living on the street holding one of my cameras along with the credit card bill (with the other camera of course) which will clearly demonstrate the dangers of debt and I will win that financial prize and use it to pay down my debt. I am SURE to win!

    No offense meant this is a great contest and a fantastic site…but why is CU wanting to know all of my personal Facebook info when you register for the contest?

    Maybe I am wrong but is that not one of the things you regularly warn against – over sharing of private info?

      Yep. As soon as I saw that I would have to deal with FB, I decided that my stick figure drawings are not going to be made public.

        Absolutely. I still tell most people that I do not have a facebook account, because it is used strictly for close friends and family, not for buying things, games, contests, or people I barely know or used to know 5+ years ago in another state.

        If it was a regular “submit by email” sort of contest, I would be much more interested.

    I entered this last year. The voting system was inherently flawed (at one point, it didn’t register votes at all). The person that won had a pretty good entry, but there were some really terrible entries.

    Staff should judge it. Miserable people like myself who live under rocks with no friends will be at a disadvantage.
