Hi everyone,

I just registered on A.net, after living on the forum for years. This is a great day, and it's my very first post!

Anyway, I was reading the zillionth topic on the issue of PTV's on LH, and that made me wonder: why don't we set up a list of topics which should not come up anymore since they've been discussed to death? I'll start with a few which have been brought by a few folks in the mentioned thread:

PTV's on LH
NW's DC-9s
AF "clean appearance"

Any other nominations?

Well, I hope this isn't a stupid answer in your book, but asking the forum if there are any PTV's on LH is like saying that the pope is Catholic..

"Why can't airline XX fly from XXX to YYY?!?"

"How to get a free upgrade?"

The notion that airline XX was stupid for ceasing service from XXX to YYY simply because the planes were "always full."

Not a topic, but "nonstop" means NONSTOP and "direct" only implies the same flight number from XXX to YYY but includes at least one intermediate stop and sometimes a change of gauge, too.

With the both of us being new users, I think we can understand how a new user must feel. Some of the new users might or might not have been reading the board before joining; so it's possible they are are not aware some topics on here are often brought up. And I think we should be as accommodating to everybody, especially new users, as much as possible.

Even for existing users, a smart person can always come up with a new angle on an old topic.

You know, I agree with nearly all of the above.

However, I'd have to say that we should just not go into those threads and ignore them, no matter how annoying it is to even see them listed, because I'm betting that the people posting them are not as experienced in the industry as some of us who look at them and go "oh for Christ's sake".

Good God that was a huge run-on sentence, my apologies!

But you see where I'm going? Like a 16yo kid who doesn't know that AA once had 747s but phased them out because.....
