I'll chime in:

Falcon84: This man absolutely fascinates me. I wonder if he's as uptight in person as he is here. He thinks I'm a flag waving fascist narrow minded swine. He's more or less said so himself. Even so, he is very knowledgable and certainly does his homework. I gotta give him credit for that. It would be interesting to see what he's really like in person. Him and I do see eye to eye on several things, even if we have different ways of seeing it.

Superfly: Him and I could be the greatest Gubernatorial team the Golden State has ever seen. Him and I, do have some things in common politically. But otherwise, our Yin-Yang approach would probably appeal to many. He also likes a lot of the same music I do as well as reel to reels. Indeed, him and I have hung out a few times and we click pretty well. He also shares my disdain of modern pop culture and muscle cars. Great guy

KROC: After a harrowing escape with a closet Mafia Contract man at JFK, we spent several hours at LGA chugging some beers and talking about how way too many on this site takes things way too seriously. A sign of a lack of skin and/or no life. Even though him and I feuded viciously when we first crossed paths here, we managed to work it out and find out we have a lot in common.

RednGold: She's a God fearing sweetheart who gave me lots of invaluable advice on raising the litter of kittens I suddenly and unexpectedly wound up with. Not sure I could've done it without her tips.

I've always had a great deal of respect for SlamClick, but one story of his took him to another level:


Only problem I ever had with insects: Took off out of a jungle clearing "down south" and just about the time I cleared the treetops, a wasp the size of a mouse crawled up on the glareshield right in front of my face. Did not want to land again and really did not want to get stung. For all I know a tropical wasp that size could knock you unconscious.

I kept climbing. I had the back windows out of the airplane and I climbed up to where it started getting cold. Pretty soon the wasp stopped crawling around and kind of hunkered in the sunshine. I got the machete out from under my seat (What? You don't fly with a machete under the seat?) and whacked him good with the flat of the blade. Then scooped him up carefully and put him out the window.

Sure didn't want to piss him off.

Anyone who gets paid to fly an airplane with a machete stashed under the seat is waaaaaay cooler than I am.  Wink

KROC- I've talked to him more than any other Anet-er. He is himself and he speaks his mind. I respect that.

Diamond- I've talked to him a lot also. Straight forward. And a good guy

Falcon84- I don't like him at all, but I respect him. He is a smart guy who backs up everything he says

JCS17- dare anyone to find a smarter college kid in Anet. JCS may have some whacked out views, but he backs up his claims and he knows his stuff.

LHMark-He can take a joke better than most I've seen.

AC777LR-Jordan has some of the best stories I've heard before (ahem AMS?)

B2707SST - The one user who is, in my book, beyond reproach. A.net's resident Economics professor. Was obviously locked in a room as a child with nothing but an encyclopedia and several textbooks on statistics. Perhaps the single most logical, clear-thinking individual on a.net. Every post solidly backed with facts and grounded in logic and reason.


Falcon84 - Enigmatic, and defies all labels. Just when I'm ready to call the guy a pinko commie he surprises me with a solidly conservative stance. And vice-versa! A true "liberate" - half liberal, half moderate. Clear thinking, sticks up for the little guy and isn't afraid to call out those of his own party when deserved. Excellent debating skills, and generally refrains from ad hominem attacks when others won't. A great ally and worthy adversary all rolled into one.


KROC - "The Anti-Moderator" - Jim Rome understudy who posesses the quickest wit on a.net and creator/official bestower of The Shaft, The KO, and the Give A F***-O-Meter. Fair, but isn't afraid of taking sides in a debate and jump into the fray. The one man whose posts are most likely to make your co-workers look over and demand to know just what the hell you think is so funny.


Cfalk - B2707SST with an attitude. He's a.net's counterbalance to Falcon84. Usually solidly conservative, with the occasional moderate or liberal streak. Can disarm just about anyone in a debate, and does so with blindingly quick facts to back him up. The guy you're most likely to find yourself nodding in agreement with when reading his opinions.


ANCFlyer - Resident know it all who actually knows it all, for the most part. Won't back down, especially when he knows he's right. Proudly served his nation in the armed forces and now proudly serves his hometown in law-enforcement. Part of a.net's Conservative "Holy Trinity" along with Cfalk and B757300, but an independent thinker who isn't closed-mindedly married to dogma.


L-188 - Like ANCFlyer, former military and an all-around stand-up guy. Conservative but able to admit when those in his party are just flat-wrong. Keeps an open mind and throws down some seriously funny stuff on par with KROC and Matt D. Very easy to get along with but can more than hold his own in a debate.


Superfly - The coolest guy on a.net, hands-down. Liberal, yet drives a 70's land yacht. Lives in San Francisco, yet believes in the Second Amendment. The guy you'd most want involved in throwing your bachelor party.



There are others of course, but these are the ones that jump to mind right now...

I'll simply say that there certainly are some here who I respect because I've met them and they were good guys in person as well as interesting on the net.....I don't just list the folks with whom I agree on every issue, and others whom I have not met who stood up when they had the opportunity and really earned props. I'll not mention specific names beyond this....Pilot Kaz probably should be on the list, along with TedTAce (if he ever gets off "vacation") and if I figure who to fire or someone else craps out I'll add them....as for the rest...

........please see my RU list for those whom I respect and please understand that I am limited in whom I can put in there, as I recently discovered. So there are a few out there who are not on the list and probably should be.

Thanks to those with nice words here.

You're right Superfly. I meant a disdain of Rice Rockets.

Anyway, I hear you and respect what you say. But you also need to understand where I'm coming from. I'm vehemently anti illegal immigration. Everyone here knows it and I make no apologies for it.

But what so many of you can't seem to grasp is that being anti illegal is NOT tantamount to being anti Mexican or Hispanic. It just appears that way because whether we want to admit it or not, the overwhelming vast majority of illegal aliens, are in fact Hispanic and come in through Mexico. My snetiment towards illegals is the same straight across the board regardless of where they come from-be it Mexico, Manitoba, Monaco, Mozamibique, or Mars.

If I truly had a blanket, indiscriminate grudge against anyone of Latin/Hispanic ethnicity, I'd certainly have a lot more to discuss.

If any of you can show me where I made such a comment without being in the context of illegal aliens, THEN you can call me a racist.

And yes, I realize that there is no shortage of white Conservative businessmen who are always looking the other way when that dirt cheap labor is offered. I've blasted them for their blatant hypocrisy as well. Indeed, I have, on numerous occasions called for the imprisonment of any American who knowingly aids/abets/employs an illegal.

Too many to accurately provide a list of names and not offend someone. If they are on my RU list, there's a reason. While those whose names appear there might not always agree with me and vice versa, I respect their tenacity and willingness to discuss the issue without going too far over the top on most things.

It would be rude of me to single out any one or ten persons as I feel that would be an affront to the others on that list.

Of course, as I've said in these types of threads before, anyone on A-Net gets to ANC, I'll be more than happy to play tour guide, and buy the first beer. After that, we can go out in the parking lot and strap on a shooting iron and have some target practice . . . it's the Alaskan way.  wink

Fair enough. What do you think of this:

"On the other side of the coin, the best way to get pregnant is to not want any kids or be in any position to support them.

This is especially true for 15-25 year old Mexican women. They are so fertile that they can be knocked up by merely standing downwind from a male."
RE: The Hillbilly Vasectomy (by DL021 Dec 22 2005 in Non Aviation)#ID1043892 Reply 2

The context has nothing to do with illegal aliens. If you think that your ethnic "joke" doesn't show your well known grudge against Hispanics, you are fooling yourself.

I respect those who oppose illegal immigration and I do believe that every nation has the right to protect its borders. Yet, I can't respect somebody who gets upset only because he sees a mall named "Little Mexico" or something like that.

May I call you racist now?

Sincerely, SFOMEX.

Mmm. This could be a toughie. Anyone prepared to spend the hours necessary to work out Graham's real name? Big grin

All google provided was "Sir Drinksalot."

Medieval heritage perhaps, but doesn't bring us any closer to finding out the real name.

Like most others, those on my RR List get the nod as well as some others on here like Diamond. I have met several A.netters in person and I have yet to come across a "bad person". Whether is was ANCFlyer and L-188 in ANC, Dl021 in the ATL, Superfly and crew in SFO, BernardShakey in CLE, the YYZ Contingent...well those that bothered to show  Wink , Airlinelover in DTW, Mirrodie, and the famous meeting with Matt D in the NYC. From massive fueding to bonding over narrowly escaping a Gambino family contract killer over beers while watching planes. Can't beat that. Everyone has been great. Even if we clash on the site (like me and Superfly) in person its been a blast. Hell, even having AA61hvy throwing down a a couple beers then proceeding to drunk dial me at 2 in the morning when I have to get up at 5am to go to work is laughable. Special mention to the other prominent Crapchestarian on here, LHMark. He might be a Soccer watching Eurotrash wannabe but he is a cool guy who at least likes baseball. Sure he can't think without a drink, but we have fun. I know I have meet many more people, and my comments are universal for all!

Hmmm difficult question.  scratchchin  I have only met about 10 a.netters so its kind of hard to judge.

Thanks Kaz  relieved 

Virginflyer, Jer, OYRJA, 707CMF are users I have talked to over messenger for a few years and I would really like to meet in person

I guess I would have to say UTA_Flyinghigh; I met Will last month when I flew over to the UK.

I would have to meet with some people a bit longer to get a better understanding of them. Others I have met like MYT332 and Pilot Kaz I would have to meet with a bit longer to fully respect them as the topic heading suggests. One hour isn't enough time.
Why fly non stop when you can connect

seven3seven - Very easy to get along with and just a really great guy.

Vaporlock - Seems to be constantly happy and a lovely person.
Diamond - Frank, honest and genuinely funny - see reply 27 for a classic example of why I respect him. Also, when debating a issue in serious threads he always has a link or some justification for his argument which is a welcome change from seeing those huge lists of people arguing a point without any evidence or justification (or a clue...)
KyleLosAngeles - Really genuine and very loyal. Always willing to defend a mate of his on here.
LambertSTL777 (back in the day) - Another nice guy, kinda cheeky but very friendly. I miss him here.

PhilSquares and SlamClick - Really appreciate the guidance they give in the tech ops threads (and pprune in philsquares case). Whereas other people may answer a question these two provide the reasoning behind the answer which really helps my understanding.

Cornish and BestWestern - both very intelligent, humourous, and able to substantiate their opinions.

Matt27 - The only guy I can have a very filthy conversation with, without being judged   

Monteycarlos - For knowing so much about the industry and always being objective

Nordair - The sweetest and bitchiest person I ever met as a package deal... great guy   

Pilot Kaz - You don't need to have a reason to respect Kaz, you just do   

Sabenapilot - This guy doesn't know me but for his extremely high quality posts, knowledge of the industry, and ability to be unbiased, I respect him 100%
