    So, got banned on FT (says until Nov 18th).

    I figure a combo of responding to an insult against me and slagging tcook's YEG.

    Hilarious thinking to ban a 13+ year member and founding member of Talkboard.

    If anyone is looking for me I'm here or at dorianbanks@gmail.com

    There is no justice or democracy on FT.
    Have they yet banned or curtailed the guy that keeps posting about the illegal things that he likes doing.

  4. You will be happier here; the IQ content is higher, at least on the AC board and I'm sure elsewhere

    Being banned by the petty, puffed up dictators of Censorship Central (aka FT) is nothing to worry about. Its not worth posting there anyway.

    Not only a long timer at FT, but remember Catman, Dorian and I created a web site for posting recommendations for restaurants, pubs and hotels (long before the big boys started theirs) and we gave it to Randy when he expanded FT into those areas. Of course, Randy's not at FT any longer, but just goes to show the loss of collective/historic memory over at FT. (BTW I received a month's ban over there about a year ago for chastising someone for having doubts about flying regional carriers. With over 35K posts over 12 years, the vast majority actual help tips and not random chatter or Omni, I'd been cautioned or given one-month bans three times before that...I was going to be booted off completely with my fourth!)

    Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
    Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door!
    ...and Welcome to MP!

    Sad, perhaps the owner here will see who the real antagonists are !

    Here's a quote from the past that I wrote years ago concerning the history of FlyerTalk:
    Along the way there have been several interesting historical aspects, such as in July 2001 that FlyerTalk acquired another Web bulletin board called Flyers' Places. This was a popular bulletin board started by a member of FlyerTalk - Dorian - who thought that there should be a sort of Zagats; guide to restaurants from a frequent flyers perspective and today much of the success of Travel&Dining on FlyerTalk can be traced back to Dorian.

    Welcome—seems like I've known you forever and yes, you were one of the founding members of the TalkBoard.

    NOTE: Trying to keep the Air Canada forum closer to its goal so no filtering here but i am moving the thread to likely a more appropriate forum. Housekeeping only.

    Well, I wouldn't go that far, but I agree with your overall point.

    Like that Saturday afternoon at Duggan's brewpub on Victoria Street in Toronto where Flyer's Places was dreamed up?
