http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/united-mileage-plus/1192703-reaching-1k-year.html ok, well maybe "hate" is a strong word, but this kinda struck a nerve for me. Young kid with 1K ambition and a bunch of people trying to shatter his dream.Typical example of why I think so many people are coming here to milepoint. So maybe I'm a bad influence for encouraging this guy, as some FTers have hinted, but really? Someone comes to the site asking for help/encouragement/direction/WHATEVER and this is how they get treated...??? VERY UNCOOL! *end rant* on a separate note...is there a different/more appropriate forum to post our FT grievances?
