Posts That Begin With "Is It Is Just Me Or....?

Sat Aug 24, 2002 1:57 am

Ever notice how some people begin a thread by saying/ asking: "Is it just me or....?" followed by:

are there fewer flights out of xxx
are there bigger planes flying into YYY
is airline service better/ worse
etc.

How are we supposed to answer this? Are the writers trying to say, "I have noticed that X. Have you noticed it as well?"

Perhaps we should answer by saying, "Yes, it is just you that there are bigger planes flying into X!"

Human nature and curiosity is the answer, sometimes you are not sure if a fact is certain or not, so people try to tone it down so the message looks as if you think you're right, but there's a bit of cautiousness to it.

Well if you are a typical a.net person, you answer with:

"What are you some kind of fuc*ing idiot? Everything in aviation is perfect and for you to question it is racist and degrading to an industry that has been through enough problems already. I don't care what you notice, you're wrong and a fuc*ing idiot"
