Where Do the Candidates for TalkBoard Stand on Issues Affecting FlyerTalk?

It is that time of year again…no, not for election of the presidency of the United States, which occurs on Tuesday, November 6, 2012 — although we are inclined to believe that there are a number of FlyerTalk members we would rather see running for president than the individuals who are currently campaigning.

Supporters of setting up eligibility requirements for the Mileage Run forums claim that eligibility requirements to access the information in those forums will help preserve deals longer so that more FlyerTalk members can participate and enjoy them, while those who are opposed believe that there should be an unrestricted free exchange of information for all, as it is unfair to preserve deals and other benefits only for those FlyerTalk members who are “in the know.” Voting is under way as to whether or not…
