My god, there's actually useful content there! Plus, it's written in legible English! I've never heard of Upgrd before; thanks for turning me onto that site. It seems like a bizarro Boarding Area that's actually readable

This FM post detailing the current status on Basic Economy issues when paying with points (like UR, MR, etc.) is very helpful...

For how much people say they care about great content and this board isn't entirely about bashing 3-4 bloggers, I'd like to point out this thread fell off the front page and hasn't had a post in nearly six months.

The sad truth is I haven't seen a post extraordinary enough to post here. Apparently you haven't either.

If you have, perhaps you could provide a link!?

Not a blog, but I think Andy and I are both a fan of the YouTube page of Wendover Productions.

There is a decent amount of "technical" travel related videos:

By all means, feel free to share all the good content you've found bthotugigem05!

I'd say though it's no different than most of the rest of FT...of the "opinion" style threads most are complaints rather than compliments about the entity in question.

This thread is about extraordinary blog content. Other threads are about blogs that post a dozen times a day. In those threads, some people point out interesting blog posts on those particular blogs. I agree that it's sad that some of the Titans have essentially flooded the space with low quality content which makes it hard for good quality , low quantity /conversions blogs to survive. I also think George at TBB does a fantastic job gathering high quality blog posts and thus this thread is duplicative.
