      Impressive. Terrible load time on those forums though. They must be way overtaxed.

        Sad, yes....but the funny part is that someone didn't recognize an iPod. Love them or hate them, how can you not recognize an iPod, and when someone tells you what it is, you still go through all this?

          Well, terrorists are rumored to be using all sorts of normal household items to create bombs. Sucks that he did have to go through all that rigamarole.

            You were probably hitting them during maintenance. Tuesday Mornings/Early Afternoons = WoW Junkies Not Getting Their Fix :D. Forums are tied into the game servers too.

              Something which I read today which is on this exact topic:
              During the past month, since British authorities announced the disruption of a bomb plot involving airliners, there has been a worldwide increase in security awareness, airline security measures -- and fear among air passengers. At least 17 public incidents involving airline security have been reported in the United States and parts of Europe since Aug. 10. Most of these were innocuous, but many resulted in airliners making emergency landings off their scheduled routes, sometimes escorted by fighter aircraft.

              The spate of incidents -- each of which rings up significant financial costs to the airline company and governments involved and causes inconvenience and delays for travelers -- is a reminder that terrorism, philosophically, is not confined to the goal of filling body bags or destroying buildings. At a deeper level, it is about psychology and the "propaganda of the deed." And as far as al Qaeda is concerned, it is also about economic warfare: Osama bin Laden personally has stated that one of the group's strategic objectives is to "bleed America to the point of bankruptcy."

              To say that the governments and industries targeted by terrorism face difficult choices is a gross understatement. The problem lies in the fact that decision-makers not only must protect the public against specific groups using known tactics (in al Qaeda's case, bombs and liquid explosives) but also must protect themselves in the face of public opinion and potential political blowback. Officials naturally want to be perceived as doing everything possible to prevent future acts of violence; therefore, every threat -- no matter how seemingly ridiculous -- is treated seriously. Overreaction becomes mandatory. Politicians and executives cannot afford to be perceived as doing nothing.

              This powerful mandate on the defensive side is met, asymmetrically, on the offensive side by a force whose only requirements are to survive, issue threats and, occasionally, strike -- chiefly as a means of perpetuating its credibility.
              I found it to be an interesting article.

              Principles of good Sandbox Etiquette:
              Assume good faith - Be polite, please! - Work toward agreement. - Argue facts, not personalities. - Concede a point when you have no response to it, or admit when you disagree based on intuition or taste. - Be civil. - Be prepared to apologize. In animated discussions, we often say things we later wish we hadn't. Say so. - Forgive and forget. - Recognize your own biases and keep them in check. - Give praise when due.

                Running along this theme, Ryanair (a budget airline company operating throughout Europe) is filing a lawsuit against the British Government for 3 million euros over the delays and turmoil caused by the introduction of additional airport security.


                Meanwhile the British government are withdrawing policement from UK terminals because British Airways refuse to pay more for their services.
