As you said yourself, I did not start the thread about the 747SP ferry flight I am supposed to do in a few weeks. I merely answered questions, which were at times personal in nature, but continued to provide specific information as to which way airplanes are ferried when they do not belong to organized airlines. The postings which were personal could have been selected for deletion, rather than deleting the entire thread. Right or wrong...?
Jetguy, you idiot...
You dared ADVERTISING a pilot job, to possibly HELP one of our Tech.Ops friends who dreams about a career as pilot. You see, I could also give "tips" about jobs with my airline without naming it (yet everyone knows which one), but that could possibly have passed through if I had worded it by saying "my airline is about to select 18 first officers for 737/MD80s"... that is NOT advertisement... just a "tip"... If you had ADVERTISED a technician job at LHR
to maintain your airplanes, maybe VC
-10 would forget to click "delete", and quickly ask you who to contact.
I think that "pprune.org" is much more lenient with people like you and me, Jetguy, and at least, they do not mind open discussions about technical aircraft data, personal messages "hey Pablo etc." and plain job advertisement. A.Net will remain the best for aircraft pictures, but Tech.Ops. will become the site to discuss how short flight attendant's skirts were with PSA in the 1960s.
As to assisting, with our knowledge, to improve A.Net, we can get on A.Net and start clicking our hearts out, with "suggest for deletion" hundreds and thousands of postings in A.Net, sitting on the "RULES" as VC
-10 does. It would probably help him, since he prefers to single us in his endeavours of deletion powers. Yourself, myself, and those "we respect" will be fast to abandon Tech.Ops when they realise the fallacy of their interpretation of "Rules"...
Airliners Net is strictly a commercial-for-profit organisation and is not dedicated to assist aviation professionals and enthusiasts in their interests. Like you and me, Jetguy, VC
-10 is exploited for his time to permit A.Net to reap their revenues in advertisements which I ignore anyway. I was just here because I have made many personal friends, despite the distance, and it was with pleasure that I gave them my best information or advice.
Happy contrails, always
