I can't help you if you don't understand that in this context "secret" is not the opposite of "we don't publicize something by trumpeting it on our website or when responding to official inquiries."

The opposite, in this case, is that the OU, in an unofficial capacity will acknowledge it.

the way i see it, if someone withholds information it makes sense to say he doesnt want it to be publicized. however if someone gives false information (saying he doesnt have info when he really does), its more than just not wanting it to be publicized even if thats his intention. its a different level. take it or leave it, you can disagree if you want, its your prerogative, but i think this discussion has more than run its course

Does anyone know the earliest I can get a seaplane from the PH to MLE? Would I be able to make an 8:45AM flight?

PH MLE doesn't use sea planes. You'd have to catch a domestic flight AFTER a boat ride. You'd be cutting it tight, but you can confirm directly with PH MLE.

OK thanks. Found a 10:40 departure which would presumably be totally safe?
