Anyone whose advice to readers is "We WON!! - now go MS $250K/year for DM" deserves it! Of course, anyone still following the advice of RP after that post is not right in the head.

I saw whining at first.
Then I realized it was winning.
Then I realized they were both correct.

I wonder if he takes twitter pointers from 45?

Definitely copies the punctuation and capitalization of 45.

+1 to those who were blocked on Twitter for honest critiques of his over the top love for Delta. I remember the day I found out he was from SBN.... it was like a lightbulb. "OMG, that's why! You have no choice!"
I do have friends that love him though and blindly followed him thru Amex affiliate links for Delta cards. And now, their $25K has turned into $250K.
Hopefully, I will be able to talk them off of the ledge this year.

I think the problem is him, not Delta. There are plenty of reasons why sticking with Delta may or may not make sense for individual travelers. But unfortunately bloggers like Rene should never be trusted for providing objective information to influence that decision.

But you're forgetting about how on point his blog posts like "Delta First Class Meal Review: Turkey Sandwich" are.

Granted, I only know what the title said, but I can only imagine the quality of content that followed was only the dopest of dope.

Well for an indication of the current state of content quality, consider that he's now posting about how he's actually going to waste time and opportunity cost to MS $250K for the MQD waiver. Talk about a fool's errand.

Some folks at DL and Amex have to be busting a gut right now.
