thought that wasn't allowed, but hey, there are bigger crimes.

never heard of anything like that here - to sell miles?!  :o

By the way, you could write up trip reports for newspapers. If you have someone to translate it to a female spouse language (add lots of chocolates...), you can publish it in Bina Magazine under a pen name.  ;D

yup;
Mishpacha has used quite a lot of pics that I've taken.

I know someone who did that - the opposite, and just used first initial instead of name.

It is, but you were the only guy commenting here.

I guess this type of shtick is too elevated for most on the forum, so they cannot relate to it.

No problem, I've learned my lesson.

(heres one to moish: how about being able to buy award tickets with miles?)  ;-)

views without comments, is as if people by mistake got onto the page.

Very few statement go by on DD without comments.
I guess I have to comment. WOW!

Thanks for bumping!
I'm not who you think I am.

And the bloggers call a trip to hkg and back a mileage run.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Thanks a lot.
Might still be possible to have a loophole of this kind again. Just be quick on the ball and don't think too long.
