I just received a chastising PM from a Flyertalk mod informing me that the term "smurf" is no longer allowed, because it creates an unwelcoming atmosphere for the TSA perverts, molesters, thieves, and idiots who want to participate in TS&S @ FT. I'm all for civil discussion in most cases, however there should be no expectation of victims to be warm and welcoming to their abusers. TS&S would be very low traffic or might not exist at all were it not for the abuses of the TSA and the idiotic policies promulgated by Gropenfuhrer John Pistole. "Smurf" is one of the nicer terms for TSA employees, the remainder having been included by George Carlin on one list or another. Funny how a reference to a cartoon character is deemed more offensive than the mere presence of a person trained to take away our rights and aggressively assault our genitals. Thus, I have decided to opt-out from FT permanently. I will be warm and welcoming to the TSA on message boards when they make the airports warm and welcoming to me. My need to travel with dignity is far more of a human necessity than is their self-esteem on a message board among the very class of people they exist to antagonize.
