When did thetrainline.com become evil?

Damn you thetrainline.com! Who am I going to buy my rail tickets from now?

Edit: NXEC seem to have a low evil rating at the moment... (and seem to allow booking on non NXEC services, which is nice). I have to wonder if teh evil is just hiding somewhere out of sight.

Oh yes, of course. I elected to have them delivered and thought nothing of it. Charging to use cards is ridiculous though, and as for VbV I'd have to say I agree but say I know nothing; and the insurance thing - it's normally an option at the bottom of the screen on step 3 - untick the boxes?

Ceiling Cat

Insurance: I meant to say, this is a pretty mild thing, but I prefer my optional extras to be "opt in" rather than "opt out". "Opt out" extras smack of a way of making money out of people who aren't paying enough attention to untick the box.

You're right, it doesn't affect their service, but it is another hint that behind that cheerful facade, they've gone evil.
