• Thread of The Week, Round 156



    It's time for a new thread of the week, our way of recognizing forum members for promoting valuable discussion here.

    Every weekday yours truly posts a morning briefing, including the most popular forum threads—that is, the posts with the most replies—for the previous 24 hour period. For reference, here are the briefings for the past seven days:

    Your Morning Briefing for Monday, January 2nd, 2023
    Your Morning Briefing for Tuesday, January 3rd, 2023
    Your Morning Briefing for Wednesday, January 4th, 2023
    Your Morning Briefing for Thursday, January 5th, 2023
    Your Morning Briefing for Friday, January 6th, 2023

    Remember that the Monday briefing includes forum posts from the prior Friday, Saturday and Sunday, so all weekend posts are similarly eligible.

    In each briefing, forum posts are ranked by the number of replies (from highest to lowest). That's subject to change, of course, so I did a quick recount of replies for all forum posts in the briefings above. With 43 replies as of this posting the most popular thread started last week is:

    Goodbye Tracfone

    That doesn't match my experience with my two cancelled orders. In one case, the reps put 20K points back into my account with no waiting period. In the other case, the rep issued a new $300 code.
