Cathay De-Escalates, Clears Marshall of Wrongdoing

I know everyone is getting bored of Cathay, and I'm trying to get back on interesting strategic content, philosophy, etc. But hey, I want to give credit where it's due - they've started to de-escalate and get reasonable.

Some facts here are wrong, and there's some omissions. But anyways, I appreciate this Joseph.

I filmed a video reply (that's friendly!) and I'll post it later. Really, it's entertaining.

Anyways, they're originally saying I caused a gigantic disturbance and was a huge problem, then I said I was going to bring tons of legal action against them (which, y'know, usually means they'd want to preserve their leverage by holding everything over my head that they can), and yet now they just filed no complaints, no charges, and cleared me to fly. That's interesting, isn't it?

Southwest cancels in-flight wifi, Facebook to blame (FAUX NEWS)

On Mike Dariano

New York (Bakersville News) Southwest Airlines has announced an indefinite hold for its in-flight wifi program. "We were pleased with a few customers who took full advantage of this program but had to shut it down because most use was inappropriate" said Vice President of Technology Chris Simmons.

"Eighty percent of the bandwidth usage was dedicated to people updating their Facebook status only to say 'I'm updating my Facebook status at 30,000 feet', that doesn't even make sense."

Some customers supported this move, Cheryl Racie was disgusted one flight: "The man next to me was looking at things entirely inappropriate, I was embarrassed and uncomfortable sitting next to him". When pressed what sites or content her fellow passenger was looking at Cheryl reported: "The Drudge Report".

Simmons concluded that the program may be back under different circumstances but probably not in the immediate future.
