    It's already in the open and widely published, I don't know, is this member real or not? ;)

    I hope SPG wouldn't give out her name without her permission, but why would she give permission for the account number to be published on the internet?

    No, this is not a real member/account. It is merely a mock-up of a fictitious member/account used for media demonstration purposes.

    Which also means that:


    1,826,925 Starpoints
    Lifetime Gold
    9 Suite Nights Awards

    is also not real. Then what is the point of deception?

    Everybody should cool it! Ancestry.com has just explained it:
    ' Elizabeth Martinello. Birth: abt 1854 - Italy. Residence: 1891 -

    township, city, Glamorgan, Wales'

    As we all can see form this she has had a very, very, very long time to accumulate all those points and her lifetime status is itself world record setting, in the modern world anyway. Because she was collecting starpoints roughly a century and a half before they were invented she also wins the prescience award. She probably bought Apple at the IPO also, among other things, so she really does not need the Starpoints.

    You're an idiot.

    It's called advertising, or do you believe everything you see on tv and the internet?

    What is this, TOBB? Very well...Only an idiot would believe that anyone failed to see that as an ad, and that the responding comment was made with the full knowledge of that.

    Either say something smart or get lost.

    Please, both of you have many productive things to say and post. I learn from both of you, most recently from Mike Reed about IOS 7, firearm licensing and airline merger questions. It is simply uncivil and unnecessary to ridicule other MPers. I hope we can manage to avoid that. Some of us, maybe all of us, are ignorant or irritating from time to time, but we usually manage to avoid outright rudeness. Please, please let us avoid descending into rudeness, even when provoked.

    I apologize for posting this if it offends either of you. I do so only because I value the civil discourse we usually have here, and I want to keep on learning.

    I tried to voice my dismay in a constructive manner. :)
    I will now refrain from further comment to prevent this thread from escalading into a "ethernet shoving match" .

    If anyone's an idiot here, it's me. When the Vikings asked me "What's in YOUR wallet?", I was so rattled that I dropped my SPG American Express card on the ground and the dog ate it. :(

    Thanks, JBC, and there is no [reason] for you to apologize. I, for one, am not offended by your reminding us to be civil. You have always been the voice of reason, as well as very fair-minded (noticed that you "liked" both of the offending and opposing comments!:D). I have learned a great deal from you as well, especially in all matters related to aviation (great job reporting on the Boston B787 inquiry!). Hopefully, the unfortunate exchange earlier will remind us about what makes MP a fun place to visit...;)

    Cheers, mate!
