I literally and uncontrollably laughed out loud while my family and I was watching tv. Hilarious.

I remember lurking here several years ago when planning a trip to WDW and seeing a Budget Board thread about people dumpster diving for Wendy's cups to get a flight with Air Tran. I didn't join.
Came back a few months ago and finally signed up for the DIS.

It certainly gets very judgmental at times and I think that sends a lot of average people - the ones doing a little better than paycheck-to-paycheck who have managable credit card debt or car payments and haven't fully funded their retirement and kids' college, but who <gasp> vacation anyway - to other boards with their budget-related questions or concerns.
I'll be among the first to be judgmental when it comes to "we can't pay the mortgage and my husband has been laid off for a year - but we DESERVE this trip." But I do think we scare off people for whom taking a Disney trip is a reasonable ambition.
