    The topic appears to be that the people who egregiously and knowingly and deliberately took advantage of a technical flaw. I'm sure many people did NOT do that. It's similar to those cases where a bank inadvertently deposits funds in your account that are obviously above reasonable expectation. If you go over a few dollars, that might be normal but if you quickly withdraw substantial excess, you will be charged with a crime. Just because I lost my wallet doesn't entitle you to take the contents.

    So, these people (presumably) stole - and they shouldn't reap rewards for their conduct. Hopefully, they bought necessities and the children will be able to eat canned chili.

    When married men commit a crime, we don't let them off because they have a family. Should we?

    I don't think that they are going after people just because they went over their limit a few dollars.

    They want to punish the people who were loaning out their cards. That kind of thing.

    That is also my assumption. I'd hope that any PLAUSIBLE excess would be forgiven. But if they went hundreds over, that is knowingly wrong. Should be easy to tell the good from the bad.

    The thought that the largest retailer in the world with over $1 trillion in sales each year was trying to generate additional food stamp sales is just ludicrous, in my view. Who had more to gain - the retailer - or the "customer" who probably was pissed they'd missed the Katrina looting and wanted in on this?

    What would be the penalty for shoplifting something worth $25 - is it less than shoplifting something worth $99?

    What would be the penalty for using a fake credit card to purchase something worth $25 - is it less than using a fake credit card to purchase something worth $99?

    What would be the penalty for kiting a check for $25 - is it less than kiting a check for $99?

    The point being, the crime is not the value of the haul, the crime is simply the act of making the haul itself.

    What was the crime? According to Korimyr the taxpayers didn't pay anything for this.

    Even when a bankrobber gets caught with the bag of bills, he still gets charged with bankrobbery.

    Did all these people return the goods they knowingly fraudulently "bought"?
