Grabs popcorn, sits and reads thread.
Now you understand why we have a few TSA folks here. We're a full-service forum. Just don't start screaming for the FSD, because I haven't hired one.
I have a feeling I'm heading to the FT penalty box after my post in this thread over there calling out a mod: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/prac...deal-tsa-giving-you-lip-about-nexus-card.html
Well cnsidering the source of the censorship and his signature line there is so much irony there it's not funny. I guess were gonna have get creative with the insults... Foreign languages anyone?
You can use just about any word, within reason, over here.
Well here of course one can use what they want but over there almost have to do like I do at the airport which is covert mindfreak techniques so to hit them where it counts and takes them a bit to figure it out.
We couldn't buy a better team of moderators "over there".
Your post is gone but I don't see "Suspended" under your handle yet. Better try again, harder!
Looks like they brought squeakr back to harass the folks "over there". She's been one of TUG's best recruiters. It was squeakr who decimated the "assaulted at JFK". Go squeakr, go!
It would appear that your post in that thread is no longer available but you didn't make it to the FT penalty box.
I see that the wicked witch of the west was busy editing, in replies, Ink's wonderful post of yesterday in another thread. Too bad because it was a post that needs to be seen in its entirety as often as possible.
Yeah, the post is removed and I have a PM in my inbox over there. I haven't bothered to read it, as I'm semi-likely to tear squeakr a new one.
Go for it, I saw that post and was so tempted to pile on, but restrained myself. Not that trolling over there would be fun, but I think FT will kill itself as the "moderation" over there has crossed over and become more like the TSA that has been evicerated with do cause over there.
Mike I didnt get to see that thread, what did chew toy do to it.
It is getting pretty ridiculous. Some very innocuous posts disappeared last night.
It's beyond 'moderation' - it's turning into an edited and directed forum.
Here's what squeakr said:
And what I said back to her:
Lets see where THAT goes...
Good evening Box, and greetings from another undisclosed hotel room on a trip that does not include the TSA.
What a day for a drive! This evening I was headed west literally out in the middle of nowhere on a flat, straight, secondary road. As the sun started to go down, there were no other cars as far as the eye could see. I step on the gas a bit, putting me at just over 70 MPH. I hit the scan button on the radio, and some station somewhere was playing Gimme Shelter by the Stones. Good tune, one of my favorites, and it seems like I never hear it very often.
I’m not sure why this song triggers a memory, but it reminds me of when I had some time to kill in PIT. I got a sandwich somewhere, and went over to a picnic table by an office park that overlooked the old terminal. To put this in perspective, it was about 22 years ago, and I was watching a PanAm 727 at the gate. I was listening to my Walkman when the same song came on, and as I sat there I thought to myself how cool it was that in a little while I’ll be on a plane going somewhere. I don’t remember where I was headed; just a cool feeling to know that I would be traveling.
I don’t feel that way when I fly commercial anymore, thanks to the TSA.
But when I heard that song today, it reminded me how much I enjoy going places, and it really put me in a good mood.
If you open a can of Bumble Tuna, be sure to check for Jose. Apparently he gave everything he had to the process.
I'm wondering why the farmer who got eaten by his hogs didn't get mention here.
was he packed in oil or water? I prefer water.
Couple of threads running on FT pretty much bashing our Muse of the Platte. So far it seems the mods are keeping hands off.
Per TSORon's Second New Thread Request: Non-Prohibited Items

Water-packed for me, too, but I only buy the "very low sodium" variety that Starkist makes. Have any of Charlie's buds been lost to the steam cooker lately?
"The TSORon Hour" for me is a show that ran its course months / years ago. I actually had him on "ignore" in FT -- the pain of the noise wasn't worth the limited content.
