    Am I the only one getting really bored by seeing a crossposting of this in every single forum marching across my RSS reader like gate lice after an aircraft swap?

    I didn't doubt it. That doesn't make it any less irritating.

    Won't be a habit. Event was confirmed with rather short notice, and to ensure core market is exposed, an exception for cross-posting. I share your normal aversion to cross-posting.

    For full disclosure- only posted on legacy carriers, Mileage Run, Newbie and Global Alliances. So, limited pain! ;)

    Oh good, another class in scamming, grifting, and so forth.

    Sometimes I wish there were a travel forum that didn't glorify the things that, deep down, everyone know are mostly wrong...
