Ladies and Gentleman,

This thread is, unfortunately, long overdue.

As such:

Fail to use appropriate capitals? You'll earn a place on this list.

Fall asleep on your keyboard so your posting style LOOKS LIKE THIS THE ENTIRE TIME? You'll earn a place on this list.

Fail to use proper commas? You'll earn a place on this list.

Fail to use punctuation? Yup, you'll get a spot here.

Use more "!!" than are completely necessary? Absolutely on this list.

Use run-on sentences such that it makes "TLDR" seem wholly and utterly inadequate in the message it's intended to convey? Come here to find yourself in infamy.



Keep in mind, the above list is descriptive, not exhaustive. I will let the DDF community judge the fates of you, the individuals who have no regard for the English language, your fellow deal-seekers, and indeed life itself.

Re: IHG nights for sale
;D FYI- I did not intend to say that a goy is less trustworthy than a jew, just that I assume that a jew would be more honest to a jew than a non-jew would be to a jew.
Oy. You tried explaining your reasoning and you just kept digging the hole.

You've clearly never gotten an AS card.....or 4, or 20.

Re: Stocks
Already bought and sold (made 3%) and bought again @ 168. My analysis is that there are only 2 dominant airplane manufacturers and Airbus is really backlogged on orders, which is part of the reason for BA demand/success. People still need to fly and the demand for aircraft currently far outpaces the supply, so for an airline to transition to Airbus would not only be cost prohibitive but also extremely hard to pull off. Also, you have to have confidence in Boeing’s ability to figure out the flaw and correct it. In 2012 after launching the 787,  they had some issues with the Dreamliner batteries, and it took BA 3 months to solve, yet the stock was up 80% that year. And lastly from a technicals standpoint the $160 floor has shown resistance.
Where are you seeing Boeing at those prices? Hasn’t been there in 2 years.
