Excellent...We're already seeing the synergies of this Merger affect FT...pretty soon there won't be a Box in the CO Forum or have a CO Forum at the least and it'll be run by FT-UA Moderators...

:o

The CO Forum is planned to be open for posting until at least full integration of the airlines. As far as moderator resources in this new Forum, as you can see, all four United Forum moderators and both Continental Forum moderators are actively and jointly involved in the moderation of this unified forum. All six of us have been involved jointly in the planning for the new Forum for many months.

fozz Apr 1, 11 10:15 am

I think the Box has reached syndication at this point.

Emphasis mine. Does this mean we get to discuss the Golden Share again?

This guy might be available to shame people into compliance.
