    So, wow...thanks for the invite. Apparently a rebellion happened while I wasn't looking. This is a rebellion, right? I love rebellions!

    Are most people planning on posting at Flyertalk too, or is this a mass exodus?

    bit of both for me, TS/S has gotten very repressive with all TSA apologists allowed to continue with their arrogance and ignorance but scolding and censure for others - so I have reduced posting in there. The other pages I frequent remain useful for now.

    Welcome to TUG! It's a major re-alignment in one area. We offer better coverage -- ~17 subforums on different aspects of travel safety & security -- and a healthier environment, but I'm sure most members will continue to participate in other travel sites. I certainly do.

    This is my new home but I will post some on FT. Got to see the outcome of that rebellion.

    Welcome to TUG, RATM!

    For my part, I've almost completely stopped commenting at FT - maybe one comment a day, two tops. I'm an infrequent flyer but adamant about civil rights so the primary draw for me at FT was TSA-related conversation. Because of their (unwritten? arbitrary?) policy of censorship against criticism of TSA, I figure I'm not interested in contributing to their community very much anymore.

    Here at TUG we respect freedom of speech and that makes me a happy panda.

    Welcome, RATM! I, too, still read and post on FT, but due to the recent censorship of one of my posts for being "gratuitous," not as often. If I have something that I really want to say without mincing words, I come here.

    Happy posting!

    Welcome, RATM! I fly about 150K per year, so I still post on FT for the airline, etc component. However, I have limited my postings to TS/S after being given a one-week ban for calling a TSA clerk a groper :rolleyes:

    I'll continue to update the NoS sticky, but limit my posting on TS/S..

    I haven't gotten a talking to yet about my posts over on FT, so I'll still participate there, however, I think the conversations will be better here.

    Just my 50 cents tho. Some assembly required. Batteries not included. Objects in the mirror are closer than they appear.

    Do you hear the people sing...singing the songs of angry men...

    I feel like we're fighting two revolutions, TSA and TS/S moderation but certainly the first is far more important. Welcome to our fight RATM -
