Don't worry if you've left cyberhome without your American Express card when you head to that adult Web site. A spokeswoman for the credit card company said the policy went into affect at the beginning of the month and that they have just begun the process of notifying their merchant clients. "The decision was ... based on about of year's worth of work we've done with this industry," said American Express spokeswoman Joanne Fisher. "There was an unacceptably high level of customer disputes. We worked with the industry, but the challenges remained, and we just decided it was no longer profitable or practical to work with this industry." Full story. -- Margaret Kane, ZDNet News
