    Hi everybody,

    wow - if Bart is a "persona non grata" at Flyertalk by now, I guess that lurkers like me (who enjoy reading both sides of an argument) should make the switch as well.

    I doubt I'll have much to add to the discussions - but I've learned a lot by reading on Flyertalk. And amazingly, the people who posted the things that I have learned most from, seem to be founding members here... So, here I am :)

    All the best to this community - I hope I can contribute at some point.

    thanks. Once my (American) wife moves to Germany, and I don't need to get into the coutry for "conjugal visits", I might get more daring and test the system. But for now, when there's always a chance that I might take the scenic route back to Germany (via Gitmo), I think I'll just continue to be a coward and play it safe. But I'm proud to say that my wife opted out on her last trip (I never had the option so far, since it seems the AIT is always down when I go through security in the US).

    Anyway, thanks for the welcome

    Welcome Martin, you've come to the right place for informed discussion. You're right about the Founders at TUG, they are definitely the best of the best. A smart and dedicated group.

    Welcome to the dark side. Try the cookies. Stay away from the punch.

    looks like it could go well with cupcakes ;)

    But I'll take the advice and stay away both from the punch and the Kool-Aid...
