comment Will getting a refund from an ESTA scam site cause me to be blacklisted from the US?
@MSalters - isn't it then incredibly reckless for the Embassy to be recommending that people do something that will make the scammers angry at them, when the scammers have the power to get them blacklisted?

How exactly can he prevent the scammer from reacting to the partial chargeback by submitting their own chargeback to the $14 they forwarded to the government? The site says bad things will happen "if the $14.00 charge submitted to the U.S. government is refunded" but provides no information on how to prevent that from happening.

comment In countries with a “Keep right/left unless overtaking” rule: May I keep the left/right lane if driving at speed limit?
"Forcing people to slow down by needlessly occupying the fast lane is considered aggressive in Germany and many other countries. " - yes, but riding up on someone's rear bumper to show your displeasure at the fact that they're not going fast enough in the fast lane is also aggressive, so if people in Germany are willing to do that it means they have no particular cultural opposition to aggressive driving in general, so "it is not your business to dictate other people how to drive" is clearly false. They try to dictate how I drive, I try to dictate how they drive, it's fun for everyone.

comment Never got toll in the mail (NY)
I do not have E-ZPass - I thought this was implied by the fact that I am asking about toll by mail.

comment Airline policy when a passenger is refused entry in both departure and arrival countries
"They may be entitled to recover the cost from you later" - under what law do they have this right, if you have committed no negligence to cause the situation? Is this specified in a typical ticket contract?

comment Cancelled UK visa on entry
@Mr.Mascaro The OP said it was both - that the visa was valid for 6 months and specified a duration of 180 days.

comment Cancelled UK visa on entry
"if she was caught on exit she would never be back" - so, you can be "caught" leaving while your visa is still valid and not having overstayed and be banned that way? What happened was (presumably) based on a prediction that she would overstay. What you suggest would be based on the absolute factual knowledge that she did not.

comment Cancelled UK visa on entry
But why wasn't the visa granted for three weeks (or some small amount over) rather than 180 days? This is essentially a statement "you may stay in the country for 180 days" - which OP's friend relied on - which is a lie.

comment Cancelled UK visa on entry
Why was the visa granted with 180 days duration of stay, then? This almost sounds like entrapment. They should not grant a duration of stay that they're not actually willing to allow the person to stay.

comment Why is the departures level always above the arrivals level?
Also worth mentioning that it makes sense to have departures at the same height as the jetways, which leaves about a floor of space underneath.

comment Why don't airlines offer last minute empty seats cheap?
@LightnessRacesinOrbit When it's done on the basis of some behavior someone has concluded as a policy matter is suspicious, rather than by random selection, it's entirely fair to accuse those policymakers of suspecting people of terrorism.
