Time to leave,so much hate here !

Wed Apr 12, 2017 5:15 am

I follow this Forum since many years , i decided to make an account short time ago. But i will leave again.
There is so much hate and racism in this forum...people hate Americans for their US Airlines Business, immediatly if some topic comes up about Air India they shout against Indians, when it comes to ME3 there is like a war against these countries..and now the worst, the United thing where people started to talk about the nationality of this poor passenger which foult it never was to overbook a flight. All this fighting because one loves an Airbus or a Boeing, all this I love a Boeing 757 or i love an Airbus 380..all these discussion immediatly turn into heated discussions and personal shouting to another member . We talk about planes here, pieces of metal,many talk about them as the planes are humans with souls . And when you love your whatever favourite airline then do it but let others lover their airline too.I went through many topics and when it comes to Airlines flying into the country of another airline or when one prefers a plane over another it all starts to become a personal fight. It became like a big Kindergarten. Looking at the many topics of like " why they dont use the 757 again with newer engines or build another A310 or 767 ...would you build a volkswagen beetle again because it was such a nice car in its time ? Put airbags inside and it still is not a modern car.
Really, the discussion about United and this passenger gave me the rest . How can there be so many emotions about this ? There are so many things that happened here and i really dont know how many members are real live airline professionals but it seems to me there are a lot that have aviation as their hobby which is absolutely fine but many of them are the once who shout the loudest.

This said , i hope some will reflect about what i am saying and i know , with this topic i will get only answers like " if you dont like it here go " , or " you with your ..number of topics want to tell us something ? " . No problem .. i am done with this here . Happy landings to all of you.

I don't blame you at all. Frankly, with each passing day I grow closer to saying, "Eff this place, I'm out."

And unfortunately it's being driven by a small, yet vocal, group of users.

Thank you for the reply. I hoped a lot that the moderators would define clear rules here and tell everybody to in now way get political or racist here ( and yes there are a lot comments which are racist ) . But it happens immediatly if a new topic starts regarding ME3 or Air India or US Airlines ...people here just cant stop their emotions then and start. if they have no arguments. to get personal . But everybody should think about , if he would be an airline manager , what he would do to max out revenues or if he would be an aircraft manufacturer that he things " yes my A380 is the best plane ever " or " yes my Boeing 737 is the best ever " ..so what ? Talk about the pros and cons but leave emotions aside. And never blame any people from whatever country they come from !! Indians are in no way worse people then americans, arab people are in no way worse then european and so on.

The moderators can not be everywhere all the time ( as highlighted on the forum rules page) and we rely on members to notify us of problem members/posts.

Everyone gets brave hiding behind a computer screen.
Best is to avoid wasting time with the negative people & focus/communicate with those that are positive.
If needed point the violation to the moderators.
I may not win often, but I damn well never lose!!! ;)

Frankly if you cannot develop a thicker skin on THIS forum, you´ll probably have a lot of trouble on OTHER forums. This is one of the best managed, moderated and controlled forums out there. Heck, I sometimes get irritated on what I believe is OVER moderating on threads. You just joined a month ago...how does a month gives you a meaningful experience of what is a.net. It´s not for nothing.I´ve been here for what, 14 years? Don´t let the door hit you on the way out!

PLEASE BRING BACK PAID MEMBERSHIPS!!

I'm kind of with the OP on this one. I don't bother posting as much as I used to. And I don't think responses like the one above really help the situation... :duck:
