I understand that for years this space (the rewards message board space) was dominated by one website. Its a good site for some and not so good for others. Along came some people (perhaps from there) that thought they could do a better job, or should I say create a different job and milepoint is now here. Its not a brand new website, but spawned off another. Im not sure if it is just not the case in rewards message board sites, but in others, it happens all the time. I mean really, why should there be only one? Aren't choices what we love about reward programs? Well here is a choice in message boards. I understand that one is rather large and deep and the other is fairly new, but everything has to start from somewhere. If anybody understands this, I do, because my life and career is based on something eerily similar (different field in a way). Now this is not a post about "oh gee MP is great", but rather a post with a question. Why is there always a new thread about "FlyerTalk this" and "FlyerTalk that"? Why cant the FT stuff stay on that site, and the MP stuff stay on this site? Is it because this is merely a site for banned members (I dont believe that), or because there was only one game in town for a decade, so its the "norm"? Genuine questions as a new member to both sites that finds them rather off putting. As mentioned, based on my past and career, I know exactly what MP is going through and understand the nature of spinning off a message board to create one's own space. Just random musings, but I just do not see the need for them because in the end it is just people complaining behind a keyboard on one side, and the owners/mods of this place working hard to be PC and use the adage of welcome to MP. Its a hard spot to be in, so why not just use the time typing up a rant about another forum on this forum into diving in and learning how this one operates? I should add that a rant thread questioning threads on a topic, but then having it be a thread on that topic is rather "ironical" (yes that is a made up word). Thanks for listening.
