I light of today's fireworks, I'd like to resurrect this thread simply to affirm that I am very appreciative of Dan for giving me the skills and know-how to experience fairy-tale vacations that would otherwise be impossible.
While I don't take advantage of every deal, workaround, status-match or "hack" for one reason or another, I have enjoyed the fruits of his labor in some small capacity and for that I am thankful.

Furthermore, I've seen, in my travels, how those in power can severely abuse their position, especially in the face of a personal attack. Today, I witnessed Dan respond to a personal affront with dignity and a levelheadedness that rivals that of a Tibetan monk. I am truly, duly impressed.

I tip my hat to you, Dan.

Thanks Dan for the way you respond to comments on the site. The speed, quantity and quality of your responses is astounding to me. Today's car rental insurance post is a particularly fine example.

You respond to us dolts with such class and skill, and it is much appreciated (CTLMS notwithstanding ;))

Thanks for everything.
Sorry about the Chase links.

Thanks Dan for blogging about what interests you. Glad you can do it and make a buck as well.
Ive been following since the CTBochur days, and remember the roll out of the forums. I enjoy the articles and have learned a little about award travel. Although its probably a drop in the bucket, i am able to fly myself or family (domestic)without thinking twice.
One day i will splurge on a business class flight, and it will be thanks to you.

JJ-I usually skip the amazon deals, but i have bought once or twice. I'm still waiting for another sale on Ticket to ride. I honestly dont mind, and understand that not every deal will interest me.

Thanks both of you for your work, and also to BAHyman for keeping the forums running, and anyone else who helps.

Also thanks to fellow DDF members who are always willing to help out, even if its not in the right thread (as long as you dont open a new thread...)

I will add that unfortunately i am sometimes (like today)embarrassed by the postings of some DDF members. Besides the lack of hakaras hatov, there is a tremendous chillul hashem.

GO DAN!!

Thought I would post today after the "Consumer advocate" debacle ...

Thanks to Dan I was able to take a trip that we had dreamed of for years to Eretz Yisrael with our kids and even sold some points to pay for rental car. We also got an awesome LA trip from the glitch tickets last February. We are working on a dream vacation to Hawaii as well. Not to mention all of the $ I have saved on random deals here and there.

Yashar Koach to Dan and the whole team.

Glad to see some positivity over here!!!

And thanks to Dan and DDF for teaching me so much about credit cards and miles, and saving me lots of $ buying stuff, some of which I even needed! :)
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Just want to thank Dan for teaching me how to escape the frigid weather in NY for a couple of days and book a last minute ticket to LA in F for under 60k AA round trip.

Cash price- $6771.00

Thanks Dan!
