1) Aside from the JL notes, what are you adding that hasn't been parroted already in the blogosphere? A day late and a dollar short it seems to me.
2) I would not point out or link to ilherman's post, which is potentially incendiary, lacks a basis in fact, and in light of the latest development seems wide of the mark.
3) I like "Taking a neutron bomb to deal with a fight at a soccer game" better than "Why use a nuclear bomb to solve a problem that a sharpshooter could take care of?"  ;)
1. True, though it's in one post rather than 7 and my readership doesn't nessarily read those blogs.
The truth is that I intended just to highlight the JAL rates and the preamble led to that.

2. The latest development being?

3. Fair enough.

At this point, I'd say leave it. All your readers that this affects and that care about this must've heard about it by now. All those that don't; this is irrelevant to. It'll look funny posting it a week later than ever other blogger, IMO. I'd say just let dead dogs lie.
Again, the point was the JAL chart, which doesn't seem to have gotten the coverage I thought it would.
And how do you talk about the JAL chart without the background?

It adds to the post but I think most people who'll appreciate it have probably seen it anyways...
Should I post with with a tznius disclaimer?

Nah. People who will take issue will do so nonetheless. Either post or leave out IMO.

You'd still get the complaints although I think  with a disclaimer you definitely shouldn't care about the complainers... The link does add your flavor to the post

2. The latest development being?

Emirates had enough, and they  threatened to remove F as an option altogether. As a compromise, and likely due in large part to the fact that EK didn't want a deluge of last minute bookings ala AA deval, both AS and EK (and from the facts, its clear it was as at EK's urging), agreed that AS would change to higher rates without notice.

Regarding Ilherman's post, I would guess you would rather go on record as not posting it because it is offensive/in poor taste, rather than merely for being politically incorrect.

@Yehuda57, that is the best post ever.

Sounds like what he said. You raise your rate+reimbursement or else we cut you off. And don't say it was us.

And yet another thread gets the Simpsons mob as its preview image on Tapatalk.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Does this disclaimer "American Express is a DansDeals.com advertiser" need to be smack in  middle of the post?

Is it better at the top of the post?

Feel free to post his comments; your home, your rules.

I would not.
