    Ten years later, TSA screening still frustrates air travelers
    but most people are still too *!?#%! cowardly or just plain stupid to notice that the violation of their rights and bodies is more important than the other petty (expletive deleted) they're complaining about!
    And this gem:

    (Once again, I give up trying to correct the font/formatting. I put everything into the Text Editor first, which is supposed to obliterate all formatting. Clearly it doesn't work, and no matter how many times and in how many different ways I try to re-do it, I get the above mish-mash. Apologies.)

    Still need to know how many of the respondents have flown in the last year.
     
  3. I would like to know more about the methodology of the survey. Were people really asked to list complaints, or were they given a list to choose from? If so, was scope-n-grope on the list? And how was it worded? Maybe I'm an optimist, but I have a hard time believing, after all the press about kids getting groped and adult diapers being confiscated, that invasive procedures wouldn't make the list and that uncomfortable seats would.

    well this type of polling is always flawed. Who did they poll also comes into factor but of course, is handly ignored.

    Methodology is, of course, pertinent. But yes, you are optimistic. I remember a survey (again, don't know methodology) several months ago where the overwhelming complaint was -- get this -- the lack of free peanuts. Yes, indeedy, the new "austerity" on airplanes -- no more pretzels, no more peanuts, no more free sugary drinks -- that's to get upset about! I left many a withering comment in the blabbosphere. (And was, of course, trounced.) Ah, America!
