I was at the Sheraton Royal in Fiji over Christmas and one evening Mr SusieQ invited a young man sitting alone to join us for a drink. A fellow American for him to chat to.

The guest mentioned that he was on an award ticket for travel, and using his points for free hotel accommodation.
My cue to ask if he had heard of the Flyertalk website?
Yes, he said he had been lurking for a long time and yet to post. He was equally surprised to find someone else who knew about it.

I have mentioned Flyertalk to quite a few people I meet while travelling, and often relate the story that got me hooked - "The Puddin Man".
