Get your barf bags out, folks. I made it to 3 or 4 paragraphs before it got too much.

(Yeah, yeah, I know. But I couldn't find a TPG thread, so MMS it is.)
Very interesting. I would've thought the Ritz has a higher commission than the USB Altitude, and the PRG over the EDP (which I also thought they're eliminating the commission on altogether). The Hyatt over the Ink was also very interesting; I thought the Ink has a much higher commission.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Boy is that cringe-worthy.

The comments ...
Best comment which pretty much summed up TPG these days: (Responding to "We're just trying to have some fund with the topic.")
"It certainly doesn't come across that way. It comes across as a premeditated way to *fake* something fun while tooting the horns of your sponsors.

If you truly like to mix it up, try informational chats w/o hawking your sponsors every two sentences. The site is already plastered with ads, which is fine since that's your revenue model and I as reader accept that as the price to pay for quality content. But when even the content is a colossal dialog full of sponsorship references, it simply devalues your service and your credibility as an independent, 3rd party reviewer."

I would have just moved and asked to speak with the purser if they had a issue with that.

You're also not employed by a guy who needs 14 writers to fabricate crappy credit card drafts...
