This is how we keep fake accounts out.
It's kind of a problem. Forums like this are very attractive to all the angry Facebook uncles that like to make everything just nasty. Also, spam. Spambots are everywhere nowdays.
So, we've set up a system that we think will work to keep real people talking to real people.
Here's how it works. First, we need to see your work ID. At United, it's called your "U-Number." That way, we can look you up and verify that you're really you.
Second, you will need a profile picture that looks like it's the same person as your employee ID. If you're ugly, we don't care.
Thank you for playing along with all that. I know it's a pain, but it'll really help us keep everything friendly and chatty.
If you're not a member of our union, that's cool. Just let us know that you're an ally, and we're good!
