    But as I pointed out to the guy who originally coined it (trollkiller "over there"), it's an insult to women everywhere. I would much prefer TSA delendum est.

    Steal is such a course word, how about liberate?:D

    I believe FriendlySkies made it all by himself using the TSA's own map.

    Incidentally, MEM and BNA need to be flipped, and MSP is in the totally wrong place.

    I added the stars and the crime info. The map is from TSA, but I can modify it, if necessary.

    I'll go through the list this weekend and see if I can locate new links. Fortunately many had multiple sources and so far I've been able to fix them.

    If you spot any specific links that are down please let me know via post or PM.

    That's cool! If it had every crime, groping incident and failure you'd need a much bigger map.

    Seriously, have you noticed that Home & Forums link to the same page? At some point either I need to provide a real "home" page or get rid of it.

    I think a smaller version of that map would integrate nicely into a real home page.

    So, yeah, I would like to know where it came from.

    I don't think it needs to be kept up to date for our purposes -- it's the idea that matters.

    If you need any smaller versions, etc, just let me know.

    I don't know who trollkiller is. I patterned it after Cato the Elder's "Carthago delenda est," and didn't change the gender for the simple reason that like dealing with the TSA, when dealing with women they maintain that the rules are "SSI."

    ;)

    trollkiller was one of the more active members "over there" who used to run a site called Trollkiller's World, that included a forum. He also came up wit the "Why does TSA want to see me naked?" t-shirts. He mostly dropped out of sight due to family issues a ~ year ago and his web site vanished. His brother was going to attend to the site, but I guess it didn't work out.

    His site might well have been our best choice when we were trying to regroup in late May/early June, but by then it was gone.

    His t-shirts are still available, including one that you might like: http://trollkiller.spreadshirt.com/tsa-delenda-est-the-tsa-must-be-destroyed-A4249052 :)

    Another member suggested that I put one, giant star.. That ought to cover each and every crime! :D

    I wore the tsa naked t-shirt through security @ MCI, and got a secondary search because of it. Of course, the clerks say that never happened, but :rolleyes:

    I've also got a shirt that features Blogger Bob:

    One of these days I'm going to attach all of these as appendicies to a court filing. It's going to be a lot of paper. :)

    This won't happen with XF -- the thread names remain constant as the thread is moved. All that really matters is the thread number (.NNN) at the end of the URL. Any references to "threads/XXX.NNN" will resolve to thread NNN.

    I met Trollkiller once. Nice guy.

    As to the clerks at MCI they are very, very vindictive. Told one "Sorry, but I don't trust you, so please let me keep an eye on my belongings." That resulted in a three striper getting called over. The clerk told the three striper "He just called me a thief." Three striper was none to pleased. Told the three striper what I said and got the treatment. Funny thing is that they kept coming over to where I was seated to check up on me while waiting for a delayed plane. Don't trust that bunch with anything.

    I had more then a few discussions with him behind the scenes, good guy with lots of ideas, just not a good situation to be in. Anyone yet try the internet time machine to get data from the website or other t-shirts he created?

    Part of this is why now when i have to traverse TSAs gauntlet I have multiple digital recorders(w/ sensitive stereo microphones) running and my camera recording video and sound the whole time as comments like that would come back to bite them in the (expletive deleted) in a hurry. Before anyone says anything about wiretapping laws thats easily negated with the button and or sticker on my bag that says there are active recordings going on so they cant say they weren't warned. I wish there was one i could wear that would not set off the WTMD, that would definitely add to the mix and really provide some insightful ammo to use.

    I'm asking people to post all new accounts of TSA abuse in this thread. I'm sorry, I haven't been able to keep up because most of my energy has been going to the occupation of Freedom Plaza in Washington, DC. I'm sure I've missed stuff to add to the Master List. So if you post it here, I can quickly add and keep the List up to date. Many thanks.
