    Thanks for the invite, which I got at FT (where I post as Isobel, but since I always slam the TSA tweeting under my real name, I'm here under my real name :)

    Hi to all and thanks for the invite. I once got censored at FT for incorporating the word "jerk" in a post, not even directed at anyone. Seemed rather excessive to me!

    Welcome to TUG. You can use the word "jerk" in a post here, although we would ask that try to phrase things to avoid personal attacks on other members. You can also refer to your screener as your groper, if indeed you were groped. For exampe, if "my groper was a real jerk" describes your screening experience at the checkpoint, then it's perfectly ok to state that. :)

    Welcome aboard! I know exactly how it feels to be censored for saying things like jerk, etc.. I was suspended for a week because I said "groper" :rolleyes:

    In any event, glad to have you here! :)

    Welcome Linda! We're all here for the same reason - heck I was officially "warned" for agreeing with a post that tells it like it is...anyway, we're so happy to have you.

    Welcome to the Underground, lindabarlow! I was censored for being "gratuitous" if you can believe that. I think FT hired BS-Bob as a moderator!!

    Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. Wow, sounds like the FT moderators were going nuts with their red editing pencils. I was wondering why it seemed to be getting so quiet over there recently.

    I look forward to more open discussions here.
