    Hi to all you TUGgers! :)

    I have been thinking about joining for a while, but the recent restructuring over on the other site cemented my decision. I really feel like the mods over on the other site are doing all they can to silence a lot of really useful discussions; I also feel that one of the indirect aims of the security forum renovations was to shut everyone up for a week and let some of the discussions cool off.

    Well, guess what?

    I cooled off... and then I realized that I was tired of having my posts edited without my consent or knowledge for no good reason, and I got sick of feeling like I was walking on eggshells.

    Hi to everyone here; hopefully the great discussions can continue!

    Welcome to the Underground, eturowski.

    Guess their rehab must not be having the desired effect ... :rolleyes:

    I found it ironic that a blog where privacy and rights were such a hot topic that the mods would resort to some of the same tactics that everyone there was complaining about.

    Many of those threads had 50,000 - 100,000 hits so it will be their advertising income that ultimately suffers.

    Welcome to TUG! I've had the same thoughts about the "renovations" to TS/S, and I've decided to go 100% on TUG. Seems pointless to waste my time posting over there.

    Looking forward to seeing you on the forum! :)

    Cookies? PFFFFT!

    I have the direct pipeline to the good chocolate (including the stuff filled with real alcohol not found in the US and which 'someone' enjoyed sampling from my suitcase last year). Nice to see you!

    welcome! I'm not surprised if what you surmise is true. FT is a commercial enterprise, and so they can be bought or intimidated if that course were embarked upon. TSA is sadly mistaken if they think the furor will ever die down if they continue with their current conduct. They say they are trying to change, and so we'll have to make sure we give them credit if and when they do. Bart's continued defense about the intrusive rubdowns, which includes female breasts and getting as close to to genitalia as they possibly can makes me doubt TSA's sincerity on this. Given his defense of that type of unconscionable touching, I'm not sure how to understand what he means by "TSA is backing off" some things. Surely he can't mean the shoes. Tell me it isn't the shoes!
