Fucking websites with no credit card

The banks want to cut their losses regardless of how it impacts their customers.

Having had my own credit card suspended out of an abundance of caution on a different credit card issuer's part (for legitimate charges), but having recently had some widely known scam charges get accepted, the fraud protection algorithms that the credit companies use certainly seem inscrutable sometimes, and so do the surrounding practices about communicating with customers.

Meanwhile, many people end up saying they don’t like to code.

Some schools even introduce code to very young children. Not only because I am a developer myself, but because I do think having basic coding skills is valuable in everyday’s like now that Internet is everywhere.

=.= Why do they ask for a credit card if the site is free anyway?

=.= Anyway, some help and sites would be appreciated thanks!
