You would know all about that, wouldn't you 3250?

To paraphrase Lewis Black:

This is like going into a bathroom, flushing the toilet and having the water hit you in the face...and then when you're going to leave the bathroom, you see a sign on the back of the bathroom door saying: "DANGER! Water may hit you in the face."

It's more like going into a bathroom that you have previously installed on the cheap, flushing the toilet and having the water hit you in the face, then suing the owners of the toilet, and then telling all of the other plumbers that it wasn't your fault.

I'm surprised you still don't get why everyone is so angry

I think it's clear people are angry that you did this, perhaps the best thing to do is to accept the criticism and see if you can learn from your mistake.

So you get, good. You have to now listen to it as frustrating as it sounds and try to accept that people might let their emotions towards you create 'crap' that you need to just take.

If you want to be remorseful and try to learn you can't lash back.

A gentle reminder not to get personal. Comment on the bloggers work, not the person itself. I know its tough to do, but can be done.

What are the appropriate sanctions for people who violate the T&C on Flyertalk?
Jeff is an adult.


While I think that this DOT complaint probably had some connection to these changes to the LM system, it is simply false that LM was unaware of these tickets until Jeff tried to get compensation on his GUM ticket.

Just like a sleeping bear is aware that someone is near it, having a picnic.
But until you poke it or throw garbage at the bear, it wont act.
