    MilePointer? MilePointee? MPer? MilePointies (as in Losties)? Randy's Army?

    Though Kiwi points us to a lengthy thread, I will still throw my 100 Zambian Kwacha for "m."
    I like the quirky.

    I think we have to drop a word. We could go for "Milers" but that's too generic and could refer to "million milers" or something else.

    I like the idea of "Pointmen" even if it's not gender neutral. Imagine the conversation: "Who should I talk to about getting the best deal on a flight? And how can I turn those frequent flyer miles into a free trip in the future?" "Hmm, maybe you should talk to Scottrick. He's the Pointman on those issues." [​IMG]

    I do love “m.” though of course trying to stick it in a written sentence is more difficult.

    What's going to happen is, you'll be on a flight, wonder if your seat mate uses this site; we need a term that makes sense. Asking "Are you a miler" or "Are you a MeePoo" probably won't work, and could even get you slapped. [​IMG]

    I don't know the answer, but I suspect people will gravitate to asking "Are you a MilePointer?", just for simplicity and clarity.

    Ah, that makes sense. I have had that experience, asking someone if they go to X website (not always flying related) and the whole convo just going south from there when they don't understand
