Great article! Thanks @Neil for sharing it.

I wish every person who is about to book through an OTA would be required to read it. It would sure cut down on the posters who come here after the fact wondering why the OTA isn't helping them with 'xyz'. Those that choose to continue at least would be aware of the downsides and could assess the risks to their travel plans BEFORE they press the buy button.
