Yes, and has been since the TSA started putting Federal BS (such as Military-Industrial Complex spending) above my safety and privacy.
I haven't been on a plane since the whole overreaction began.
As far as I'm concerned, we should just have a cocktail party at the gate, let all the passengers get to know each other, then board.
Anyone who does not feel comfortable, should just take the next plane.
We should also have firearm-optional flights (when I say "we," I mean the airlines can decide for themselves). Consumers should be able to choose what the security levels are by having a choice of flights.

Integrity means having to say things that people don't want to hear & especially to say things that the regime doesnt want to hear -RonPaul
I think, truly, we should all in the line just take all of our clothes off and stand in the line naked. No need to scan or grope.
I voted again, as it seems you can vote as many times as you want..
IF I ever have to fly, and this is still in place, I think I will just remove my clothes completely, and stand in that line. Period.
EDIT: Omg..just saw where they were just about already doing this in Germany..I would (will) have gone further, but...
Over 28,000 responses. Hopefully this will make the airlines think about the consequences of bad policy which is loss of revenue.
and personal effects are 'secure'. I will not willingly give that up just to fly. We road trip instead.
They will, of course, bury this poll with numbers like this. That still doesn't negate our responsibility to try!

Are you less likely to fly because of stepped-up security procedures such as full-body scans and patdowns?

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety
voting no must feel pretty wussy when they see that 97% are voting yes.
But I'm not sure that's the way to go. The passenger in San Diego who refused to submit to personal assault without being retaliatory was awesome. I, however can't afford the loss of my fare...so I don't fly.
97% to 2%. Great comments there too.

Who would voluntarily subject themselves to this Tsa B.S.?
I quit flying when they started making people take their shoes off...disgusting!
