How did you measure that?

I didn't write that he is the most, I wrote that he is AMONG ,
But if I would be talking about you Ashero, then you might of even get a better compliment. YMMV....

I'm not looking for complements, I'm wondering how you measured his knowledge.

I'll tell you how,
The best things about this site is that nobody can be proven wrong. Its the first place that I know of, that when you prove somebody wrong he just answers YMMV, that's it, and he is protected, so in other words there's is absolutely no way of knowing who's knowledgeable and who not.
I just figured that the people who talk alot and write alot must be picking up something after all those posts and comments.
Look at AJK for instance he wrote 3420 posts since Jun 2011, well if he's even a drop above the very stupid people he mustove picked something up from writing so much.
Am I right?

Post count, obviously. Isn't that the absolute measure of everything?

::) This is why we need mod/karma points.

I can unequivocally say that my post count has nothing to do with my degree of knowledge, and I have more than 3420 posts, so feel free to reply 'YMMV'.

You saw this coming a mile away. So did I for that matter.

But that does not mean I haven't contributed to this forum.

Are you replying to me? My question to Wolf wasn't specifically about how he measured your knowledge, it was what method he used to measure knowledge. I agree you've contributed a lot to this forum*.

* Doesn't mean I don't have any complaints.

I was replying to you and you're most certainly entitled to your complaints. Though we haven't always seen eye to eye, I find solace in the fact that the past becomes the past (for most people anyway), and that tomorrow is another day in which we can continue sharing and being helpful. Just like many others, I have learned from DDF, and I'd like to think I have done my fair share of helping many others as well.

re: wolf & AJK, I'm not sure anymore what your guys' understanding of my issue is/was, so here's my summary and I'm out of this discussion.

Search one-way flight SFO-JKT for 2 pax  = only 2PM flight available
Search same flight....for 1 pax = 2PM and 10AM flight available
My question: does that mean (as it looks) that there's only 1 award space available on the 10AM?

so I 2BM'ed the 10AM flight, and I got 2 spaces.
Conclusion: seems like there's more availability than it looks at first glance.

Why is it that way? (I think this was Wolf's question). I have no idea. 2BM worked for me, so YMMV.

What if my complaints (and possibly other people's too) aren't just in the past?

You're making a mistake. It seems there's only 1 spot and by using the 2BM you managed to trick the system (or the agent who overrode the system) into giving you another spot.

Ah, interesting. I assumed the search engine/results was at fault instead of thinking I "tricked" it into doing something special. Good to know!

2BM is all about trickery, hence the YMMV.

Please stop posting the same BS all over. YMMV means people have had inconsistent experiences, not everything is a science.
