Whoever's in charge of this forum should not allow hate-oriented material to be posted here. This forum is supposed to be about CFS2 and related topics, not why so-and-so should be shot or why I hate so-and-so.

I'm sure there are fora somewhere for such ideas, but this shouldn't be one of them.

Hello

I agree. Perhaps some of the "hate merchants" should visit some civil flight sim forums and see how they operate. The majority of the contributors are only interested in flight simulation.

Weird isn't it? I left a certain B172 site because of all the vitriol - and I'm not arguing about whether it's justified or not. It's just that I prefer to treat this as a hobby and a place to relax. It was more than probable that Wayward got p***ed off by some of the posts, with the result that first hand information started to dry up.

I just wonder if this thread along with it's neighbour is going to start the next epidemic

Too bad we don`t have a OT section where people with a bug up their ass could post their crap.

Yup, there is an Off-topic forum here (here being CombatSim )

Here's the address.
http://www.combatsim.com/ubbcgi/forumdisplay.cgi?action=topics&forum=Off-Topic&number=35&DaysPrune=2&LastLogin=

I tried suggesting it before, but...

Johnny K, I too want to keep CombatSim a peaceful and happy place

Greetings, Gents...

I completely agree with your comments that some of the posts I've seen here recently are inappropriate (to put it mildly), given the subject matter of the forum. After all, as Ken pointed out, this is just a hobby. Obviously, there are a zillion sites on the web where inflammatory posts are accepted and welcome. This site is not one of them, but unfortunately not everyone has the good judgment to realize that. I would suggest that the best way to make inflammatory posts go away, would be for people to not reply to them (and/or not read them). We in the U.S. are accustomed to people that interpret the First Amendment as being "the right to vent my anger & opinion any damn place I feel like it." You learn to tune those people out.

I know really... It gets on my nerves "Patch this and patch that and fix that and why doesnt this work..."

Ok for one, READ THE MANUAL! Thats what it is for. You would be surprised how many posts here ask stuff thats in the manual. Maybe those people are just brain dead?

Another thing... MS SHOULD patch this sim, but why do so many people bitch about it? It seems the bitching gets worse and worse as every day goes by. This sim is one of the few sims thats enjoyable straight out of the box. Why cant the people who bought it enjoy it for what it is? And if you just cant... then return it! ITS THAT SIMPLE PEOPLE!

Now I dont know about the rest of you, but Im going to go now and enjoy flying this great sim MS has blessed us with.

Agreed. Time to go flame some Bettys. Just have to be careful not to get too close to them...

Ajax, you have those quotes mixed up, it was Elvis Gratton who said "You always use violence. I should've ordered glutinous rice chicken".
