I must say I've really been enjoying that site. There is a thread about which decks people do NOT like, which is as informative as which decks people DO like. I haven't looked through all their decks though, sounds like it's fairly exhaustive!

What are people's favorite decks and why?
Just curious, how many people here have looked through the decks on this site? I just looked through, and that's a much wider variety of decks than I ever knew existed! So I have a question for everyone: What is your favorite deck and why?
I have the Rider-Waite just because I've had it for a while, I must have bought it in a store at some point but don't remember. I used to have (still have but don't use) the "Albano-Waite" deck which is essentially the same but I kind of liked it because the cards were a mini size—about half the size of a "standard" deck. I stopped using it though because one of the cards blew away when I was using them outside and was never found. I tried to make a replacement by scanning and printing on heavy stock, but it's just not the same so I feel like I shouldn't use those anymore.
How different are card meanings form one deck to another?
I frequently see someone asking about which deck is being used when considering a card interpretation, so I am wondering how much variation should be perceived in meanings from one deck to another? It can't be that every deck has a whole different meaning from another or things would get atrociously confusing!
RE: Page of swords as gossip, or the opposite?
Thanks very much. That seems to tie in with what I felt it likely meant, and I get a better understanding now of how the other meaning could be given to it depending on its context.
It came up as "present" in a 3 card spread on "how does so and so feel about me"?, and I think it means that a) he is not sure of my motives, and b) he is not sure of his position in relation to me. (probably both).
Page of swords as gossip, or the opposite?
First time posting here, and I'd appreciate some perspectives on the Page of Swords.
I have been thinking of Page of Swords as having alot of meanings like discretion, vigilance, keeping secrets, waiting for the right moment to take action, finding out "classified" information, etc. Kind of like a 007 character. But on another board I saw much talk about it signifying a person who can't keep a secret, a source of gossip, maybe a person who is too immature to keep secrets, etc. I am puzzled by this as I thought it would seem more likely to have those meanings if it were reversed instead of upright, but I would very much like to hear other perspectives on this one. Am I way off track?
