Scubagirl don't sweat it; you were expressing your opinion and you are correct, that is what the boards are for. Please don't think that I took offense at what you said and I hope you didn't take offense at what I said. Southwest is never my first choice in flying. I am not fan of cattle call boarding. I prefer assigned seating.
I too like Northwest because it's my hometown airline. The best flights and worst flights I've ever had have been on Northwest, because it's the airline I've flown hundreds of thousands of miles on.
