This Is Absolutely *THE* Most Flame Free And Friendly Forum On Flyertalk!

This Forum is without any doubt the most Friendly Forum on FT.

I have reviewed every post on every thread here and for the past year there has not been a cross word - a personal attack - flames or flame bait - or bad language. We Australians are just like that. http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/wink.gif

As the self-appointed, totally unofficial and unpaid volunteer watchdog of this busy Forum, I would like to thank you for your continued co-operation.

If you have any tips or comments to add to this thread to help your fellow Ansett travellers, they would be most welcome. And failing that - if you have any good recipies, or football or stockmarket tips you are welcome to leave them here too.

Have a nice day. http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/smile.gif

I think I might take control of the busy and vibrant TWA forum.

Lets test and proof the unofficial moderator ozstamps wrong on this issue.

I invite everyone, to post 'difficult' to judge 'items' here (in the Ansett Forum) and test ozstamps on:

Tuesday, january-29, from 09:00AM to 5PM (Melbourne Australia Time = GMT+11) I (and Gisela) will take care in person that ozstamps will not be able to moderate anything during that time.

HA!! Those cunning Swiss. http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/thumbsup.gif

http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/ideasmilie.gifRudi ... perhaps I will slip [email protected] 50 bucks to see if he can 'co-incidentally' have the busy Ansett Forum closed down for maintenance between Australian time 9am-5pm January 27 when I am away in Melbourne having lunch with some folks who shall remain un-named. http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/smile.gif

After all, user confidentiality is a big issue in this Forum.

And with all the recent heavy user traffic into the Ansett Forum, I am sure Dan's backing up of files and removing corrupt data and threads may be needed for just about 8 hours exactly. http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/wink.gif

As someone who lost 4535 Global Rewards points, this forum is very dear to my heart. I believe it is crucial that we have the right moderator here!

Please, pretty please, Randy, can we have ozstamps moderating this forum - with his name in the column?

Hang on a second. Rudi suggested folks post all the "difficult to judge items" here on January 28 ...... aren't you are a little ahead of yourself? http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/wink.gif

But hey, ANY club you become a Moderator of FewMiles is one I am very keen to join. Sounds like one heck of a Fraternity. My bones warn me a post from someone in AMSTERDAM is almooooooooost upon us. http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/biggrin.gif http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/biggrin.gif http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/biggrin.gif

Back to Forum related business. Anyone else (apart from myself and willyroo) lose any AN miles due to their sad little accident of business? I mean, it was hardly their fault right? I heard it was all down to phases of the moon. Anyone else hear that? http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/rolleyes.gif

ScottC!!! Wow imagine you dropping by. Who would ever have imagined it???!!! http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/smile.gif

This Forum clearly is continuing to attract the creme of Flyertalk to visit it. Ansett Airlines has that allure, it really does.

Well, being in the First Class lounge with Elton is far more fun than being in Amsterdam I bet. http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/thumbsup.gif

Being the unofficial, unpaid, unauthorised Moderator here, and seeing it is 5.30am Sunday, I think we can overlook just this once deviating from discussing all things ANSETT. So ... which airline were you/he flying?

Glen, congratulations on your appointment!! http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/biggrin.gif</font>
http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/eek.gif Yikes!! http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/eek.gif

Full Disclosure - The Colorado Moderator Act 1958 (As amended 1963/78).

Gaucho ... I have been appointed to NOTHING by Randy except as temporary co-Moderator of THIS facinating thread. And may well fail miserably in that role, as I largely appear to have done that HERE. Oh well, 'nothing ventured' etc. http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/smile.gif

So my ACTUAL role here is as stated in the debut post - "self-appointed, totally unofficial and unpaid volunteer watchdog of this busy Forum." In that role I am hoping we can KEEP this vital Forum free of flame wars, racial attacks, blonde jokes, and other no-no areas. In short ..... * * THE FRIENDLY FORUM * *

What I think SHOULD be allowed are exchanges, trading and discussion of:
[*] Ansett Airlines Upgrade Certificates of all types, colours and expiry dates.[*] Ansett Golden Wing Lifetime Worldwide club lounge membership passes.[*] Expired Ansett Global Reward membership cards. The older the better.[*] Funny jokes that survive the profanity check and do not offend any church[*] Recipes that REALLY WORK for brownies, Christmas Cakes and Apple Pie[*] Hot stockmarket tips. (Hint - these days you are ALWAYS wrong on these.)[*] Tips that WORK on how to clean annoying wire spoke wheels on sports cars

And of course a pressing matter on MY mind. When I brush the poodle, what do you do with all the FLUFF??? Knit sweaters with it, flush it down the loo, light fires with it, or stuff throw cushions with it?

And please bear in mind the above can change at any time, with no notice, and no compensation will be offered at any time to any person of any sex for any reason.

Oh, and of course this can even be used for a de-facto "Word Association Thread" to shamelessly boost the post count of those who are bored with the pretty dreary ones in OMNI. http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/biggrin.gif

Glen, you are a riot! Keep up the good work of moderating this wonderful forum with your exceptional diplomatic skills and patience. Keep out the troublemakers, aliens and other non-desirable pains... http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/smile.gif

Gee ozstamps, I thought the poster was only kidding and was seeking clarification about it. After all, anyone whose nervous system contains more than a dozen or so working synapses ought to recognise that your experience with FT shows that you have the potential to moderate one of the more "important" http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/wink.gif forums.
