The comments section is an interesting place here at OMAAT because there is a little bit of everything.
Like anywhere else on the internet, there are people who seem to take pleasure in telling others how much they suck. If you ever feel a little full of yourself, just post something online. It’s a surefire way to give the trolls of the world a chance to try and knock you down a peg.
I think it was Gary at View from the Wing who said those comments are often more of a reflection of the person writing them than the person they’re directed at. I tend to agree.
Beyond the trolls, there is so much more to the comments sections in the miles and points community. There are smart, travel-savvy readers who are willing to share their knowledge. They add to the discussion and make the blogs better. And that’s definitely true here.
