wow. I knew you weren't joking when we were talking about it last night, but the proof is in the pudding!
I wonder where their "ridiculous mail switch" lies on the coin-in scale. I stayed in June, played a medium amount of VP, figuring I did enough to warrant some more free night offers. I get about one Venetian envelope every 6 weeks with free nights.
Based on that pile, I'm certainly glad I'm under their radar a bit.
