    I have never had a problem stuffing a 5'9" 140 lbs. man in the overhead compartment.

    The property is not yours so no, it is not right to introduce foreign objects to modify how this property was designed to function.

    If you don't like it, find other means of transportation.

    Having said that, I try to recline slowly and check if the person behind me has his/her knees up or not. However, kicking the seat in front of you because their are exercising their seat's basic capability is HARDLY a mark of courtesy.
    With everything you said, you would not get kicked. You checked and asked. Chances are, unless I had a major problem with it, I wouldn't care.

    And as far as courtesy goes, you get what you give.

    And I am curious why I'm arguing this, though, since I do not fly.

    I would ****ing kill someone for using one of those things. The seat in an upright position KILLS my back and neck. I wait, anxiously and in a good deal of pain, until they allow us to recline our seats. Then, mine goes back immediately.
