This line pops up a lot in your posts. It's curious to me what you are going for. Who on here exactly would you consider an "apologist"? I don't normally see people on here going "No you evil redtailshark, you are wrong and Delta is the bestest airline in the wooooooorld and uber-leet!" and de-friending you... wait, that's Facebook. Most everyone is here to share tips, try to find good deals, and generally be friendly and happy. If there are problems then people cooperatively try to find solutions. I cannot for the life of me figure out what your ultimate goal is on this particular forum. Is it to have every person who says the word "Delta" then immediately spit in disgust like the Iron Sheik used to do ("EEEEE-RAHN NUMBAH ONE! DELTA HAWK PATOOH!")? Is it to have endless posts from people going "Yes you... redtailshark... are the SMARTEST FLYER IN THE WORLD!"? Is it to wave your shark about and show everyone how big it is? I'm unsure. In my opinion, it seems like your goal is just to try to show people how dumb you think they are if they don't share your views. I'm not sure though. Could you elaborate your goals? I want to get behind you and talk about how you are *best in class* and generally continue being amused (your posts provide me endless amusement normally, not unlike the rabid Tea Party fan I talk to occasionally), but not if your only goal is to spout vitriol constantly about how the good ole days of Northwest were so awesome and all things DL-related are bad. I mean, I worked for Northwest and loved it but that was a long time ago and I've moved on. Things change; you either adapt and overcome like Gunny Highway or you sit on the porch yelling at everyone to get off your lawn like Walt Kowalski. I'll be interested to know. If nothing else, it will make for a good forum post.
