<quoted text>I dont really mind too much about the carpet munchers. I was just making a point to "Gay Mom" because she wanted to threaten a law suit over this silly crap and I was showing her just how easy it is to side step that foolishness. Now I would fight hard to keep knob goblins out and even harder to keep your kind out and the kind you portray.
Your shenanigans simply point out how difficult it is to catch discriminators in the act. Difficult, but not impossible. There used to be fair housing groups who would send a white couple and black couple to the same landlord to see whether the response they got was the same.

Because its privately owned property, and it's my choice. Good live in some Gov't project. Or procure your own.

Are these sting artists going to give access to their own credit reports, or are they going to lie in the name of liberal social engineering?

Mine would be the same " I am not renting to anyone to live in. What part of commercial rental or Farm ground for rent do you fail to understand?
