It might seem trite, since I was just elevated to gold, but other than desiring to have a grasp the reasoning and rubric of how to get there why are people getting hung up on this? Whether it be a hotel, airline, rental car company etc there are inherent benefits with status. None of that exists on MilePoint. Push for the delineation of how to get there: fine. As for the titles: who cares. Call me 'Grand Vermin' for all I care.
