yeah those are good policies.Back on matt's original post tho. I reckon it's better just to be nice to people and deal with the chance that they'll sometimes fuck you over. Of course they do (although they'd probably fuck you over if you weren't nice too). But on balance it's better to err that way that risk being not-nice to someone who's actually alright, I reckon.
Vaguely similar thing - always give spare change to some one who comes up to saying they need it. Of course some of them are blagging but better just to accept that as part of the deal for helping people who do really need it.
Such is my philosophy. Namaste, lads. Namaste.
anyone who is willing to debase themselves by begging for pennies is clearly having a bad time - & if you can't see how humiliating yourself like that is not an easy option, then you maybe lack compassion
