I keep getting my question deleted regarding the topic of "Evolving; Thoughts On Glitches".  In that posting, there is a picture of about $10k in gift cards from Staples.  It was mentioned that the cards in the picture are worth over 260,000 miles.  How is that possible?  I get going through Ultimate rewards shopping to get an extra 2x on top of the 5x for office supplies with Chase Ink.  That is only 70,000 miles. How can it be more?

I assume he is factoring in sign up bonuses

Every comment gets approved? I've definitely posted there and saw my post the second after I submitted it. (Although other times it definitely has taken a few seconds/minutes.)

It posts it for you but if you look in a different browser you will see it is not really there.

With over 100 spam comments a day often including rated R content you better hope Dan approves them all manually.

Akismet flags over half a million spam comments left on DD.com monthly.
But it's not perfect. Real comments get lost in the spam folder and spam comments get into the regular comment moderation log.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.
