I second what Watewate says. Nothing annoys me more than to see some pipsqueak 15 year old argue INCORRECTLY for post after post and literally DRIVE AWAY the legitimate industry insiders who can contribute immensely to this forum.
I have nothing against 15 year olds who understand the limitations of their knowledge and post within those bounds. But when some teenager butts into a legitimate discussion about yield management with a half-assed theory based on nothing but playground rumors, I feel I am more than justified in putting him in his place (politely the first time, but progressively ruder if he persists with a dumb argument).
True story : My dad is pretty high up at an international carrier and posted some info about a codeshare agreement that he had personally helped negotiate. Some 5-15 year old (this was back before this became a 13+ board) told him that he was full of sh*t and posted some garbage about how HE thought it was. Needless to say, my dad was sufficiently pissed off and hasn't posted on this board since.
