Why can't the people be more precise???
This is:
11cpm
or
0.11 $pm

But certainly not 0.11cpm

Getting sick of seing that! Ain't that so hard to quote in the right unit?

Who cares? (on this thread anyway) DCA-GRR $120 R/T A/I is not a MR by any stretch of the imgagination.

Why is everyone so negative? $120 a/i is a great RT fare between DCA and the Midwest. And yes, I'm aware of the "great deals" thread, but frankly, I think a new thread for a rarely-seen city pair (like DCA-GRR) can't hurt.

Thank you, run477, for the post!

Have you ever been confused about what a poster meant when using the incorrect units?

Really? You saw a fare and had no immediate intuitive sense of whether it was 11 cents per mile or a tenth of a cent per mile? I just don't buy it.

I guess I see the point of language as to communicate things, and if a wrong way of typing something communicates something perfectly, I don't see a point in getting my knickers in a twist about it. There are so many other things that people do wrong that we should worry about!

I'll agree that, being an order of magnitute off, you can pretty much always tell the difference, so yes I can intuite the true meaning...but because i'd rather not wake up on the set of Idiocracy , I'd rather worry about all the things

Also I don't think the comments being made are negative, just a desire to follow the "accepted" organizational structure of the forum. I think its a fine fare, love to see anything under $200.
