Yojo, what we talk about in here isn't necessarily trashing aviation. There are alot of good, clean posts in here. If it's the sexual content alot of the posts in here have that offends you, I'm sorry, but there's alot of us in here who like that kind of humor. It's fun, especially when Lindy's at it.
We're not trashing aviation at all in here, just being humans and friends. The reason you got the remarks you did is because most of us here have now formed and extended family of sorts, we care about each other, and having the non_aviation forum removed would sever the ties that keep us together. Let's face it, it's alot more fun to chat as a group than in private like E-mail. The aviation chat is OK, too, but you don't have nearly the volume or diversity of participants as you do in here.
So, this is out little place to kick back and chat about life, and enjoy the good times and discuss the bad. Maybe bash a politician or two, or listen to one put the moves on Ms. Lewinsky here!
(Bill Clinton, you know who you are!
If the non_aviation forum offends you, then just aviod it. But me, I haven't been here all that long and I've already bonded with these people here, and if any of them was in a scrape I'd try to offer some words, since I can't be there.
Non_av is not just a forum, it's a state of mind and a birthplace for lasting friendships. Now that's something beautiful and should not be destroyed.
Granted, there are a few radicals in here that post flamebaits. And yes we do have a bit of political and religios opposition in here, but you just avoid those posts and let them slip off the page. You have to understand that no one, and no place, is perfect.
So, if you don't like the non_av forum, I'm sorry. I guess it's just not your thing. But for me and a million other users, this is the best place to be day after day, if only for a few minutes, and we're damn proud of the family we've created.
So, if you don't like it here, that's fine, post only in the aviation-related forums. But let us have a good time here where nearly anything goes, and half the time it's hillarious, and half the time it's Lindy!!
Hope you understand.
Aloha 737-200 (I love this forum!
