I'm quoting from the Detailed Rules...

No criticizing of other users or posts!
If you have a problem with another user in the forum or if you dislike some of the posts, use the "Suggest Deletion" button!
"

Doesn't this seem like a contradiction to you? It seems to me that the ultimate way to criticize someone's post is to delete it. If someone doesn't agree with a post in any way then they should reply and state their disagreement, not get all pissed off and suggest deletion anonymously -- which is cowardly in my opinion!

*********
I have some questions for the editors/administrators:

1) Why are some posts deleted and others are archived, earlier than the 3-week mark?

2) If a topic fits vaguely into two forums, which will not be deleted had they been posted in both forums? Like a tech/ops question on military aircraft? Where does "theoretical aviation" discussing experimental aircraft or concepts go?

I feel there should be another forum, but I figure I'd be the only one there, so it probably isn't worth it.

Anyway, thank you for your time and patients.

At the risk of being kicked off YET AGAIN, I too believe that these forums are too strict and have too many rules. Why can't aviation fans get together and speak our minds about something other than aviation.

I have been told by Johan before that this is not a Yahoo chat type thing, where anyone can do anything. But, I think it should be. I have gotten to know some people in here (not actually know them) and like to see how they feel about different things, WITHOUT THE RISK OF GETTING KICKED OFF IF EVERYONE DISAAGREES with him or her.

My name has been deregistered twice since May, and it annoys me.

why can't aviation fans get together and speak our minds about something other than aviation.

I know what you mean and I'm sorry that you experienced "bad karma," but I think that this website, other than the Non-Aviation forum, should be solely about aircraft in general simply because there aren't any anywhere on the net (unless you choose to pay a membership fee.)

Now the Non-Aviation forum, that's up for interpretation, I'd like to know specifically what goes and why. That is where I believe that some of us should be able to speak our minds loud and clear without severe cursing or bashing. That's where I agree with you.

I  Love it here, aircraft have been in my blood for over 17 years, and I'm 22 and majoring in AeroEngr  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

If I go off topic and you don't like it, F U, okay? Either tell me why or don't reply. Just like what we used to tell our parents about our music, you know; change the station, turn down the volume and/or stop complaining.

But then they are in charge; so to the Admin/Editors:

Please don't ban me for asking, I need Airliners.net!!!

And hopefully Johan makes it a third time there, John Edwards.

In that amount of time you where on before, you where a Senator from North Carolina, A lawyer from Chicago, and tonight I see and "international financier" from San Diego.

All that makes you is a fraud. I am sorry that getting kicked off but you have to be who you say you are not three different people.

I don't think the forum is too strict. It seems the only threads that get deleted are ones that have nothing left to offer other than replies riddled with flames and nonsense. Topics go on when good dialog takes place, but when the replies start getting abrasive and pointless, it all goes away. I think the replies are used to judge a thread more than the original topic. I wonder if he uses a personal formula to determine this. Four or five stupid replies in a row and it is whacked. ??? I think that's smart.

I did a post about two weeks ago called "morning wood." I often post stuff just to be a smart aleck. But the "wood" thread was archived rather quickly. How many jokes can you make about hard-ons?

Let's Please Get Back To The Original Topic: Rules

Sat Aug 25, 2001 7:43 am

I certainly do not want this to get deleted on the grounds of replies. Furthermore, and I quote the rules again,

"Everything not aviation related goes in the Non-aviation forum, including site related questions"

My original topic is a "site related question," and I am not responsible for my posts if you guys end up going against your own rules by deleting this. I am asking a question and I figure any response via email would take too long because you have lots of users who also will be doing the same thing.

By then I'll have something else deleted and not know why, since the reasons for post deletion are merely copied from the rules without being specific.

I am sorry for my tone but I wanted to separate myself from those extremist users who want this site to be like ever other on the net, I don't want Airliner.net to change, just respect my post, please.
