    This event conflicts with the Flyertalk.com moderator meeting being held at the JFK TWA hotel on October 22nd. That is where Flyertalk members and others can see the stipend-collecting Flyertalk moderators who will be there discussing how to control Flyertalk members and the Flyertalk forums. Your input is always appreciated.

    Would have been nice to be there. This Chicago event is taking place at a time conflicting with the Flyertalk.com
    Moderator group meeting at the JFK TWA hotel in NYC on October 22nd. Great opportunity for Flyertalk members and others to see the Flyertalk moderators who will be discussing how to control Flyertalk members and the forums. Your input is always appreciated.

        The Flyertalk Moderators took a break from in-person gatherings during the pandemic. Now the in-person “training” session is back. The company that owns Flyertalk pays the Flyertalk Moderators who come to the meeting a stipend for attending the meeting. Many attend via video chat. At these meetings, the Flyertalk Moderators discuss Flyertalk moderation practices, and the Modersrors also make specific examples out of some Flyertalk participants. The FT Mods pick on Flyertalk Members whom they believe to be problem makers or posting what some of the them believe to be “misinformation” and “non-contributive” posts, and want to see be silenced.

        Some of the high post count FT Mods really don’t like many of the regular FT Members with high post counts or post counts higher than them. The names of DELee, gaobest, GUWonder and MSPeconomist are suggested as examples to be used in the FT Mods training session conflicting with this FTU event or on the sidelines around the conflicting training session.
