What If You Would Stop Posting Stupid Threads..?

Wed Mar 30, 2005 6:50 pm

Threads like " what would happen if that or that happens " - if this airliner does not fly of if that technology doesn't work?
What purpose other then producing negative ideas,negative thinking and provoking harsh and aggressive answers. Airliners.net is a great forum but sometimes I can't understand why air-enthousiast that we all are ( otherwise we would not meet on this forum ..) post sensational-negative threads in order just to be negative.
Can't we just try to produce a little bit more positive waves ??
Asians do understand that the fact ,that if you accumulate negative thoughts you end up becomming negative yourself. So stop launching ridicoulous theorems and support the airline indstry by discussing real issues rather that imaginary ones.....

I agree with you, this is called PESSIMISTS........

Like I was glancing through and saw threads like

What if the A380 doesn't work, what if the 787 doesn't work. I have to say that the engineers of these two companies aren't that stupid and I am sure they have revised their plans many times. Even if that happens, a new alternative will come out. For instance, the first few A340-600 and A340-600HGW or B747-100 and B747-200B.

I totally back you up on this.

I totally agree with you - a lot of these kinds of threads reminds me of kindergarten talk: "What if the Terminator would fight against Hulk Hogan?!?!"

There is a fine line between interesting, creative speculation and negative speculation without any factual basis.

...and have an Embraer vs Canadair/Bombardier discussion??

But to the main point, yup silly speculation. The chances of anyone building a plane that fails these days are remote. Russian aircraft may be less likely to find a market than their western competitors, but other than that if it was going to fail it wouldn't be built in the first place.

I think the days of >30 years ago when there were a lot more manufacturers trying to find a market have long since gone. What is failure anyway? Low sellers including...

It's to create enough views to get a thread on the front page. Entitle a thread sure to do that and voila! (Adding an exclamation point to the thread title is also a good gimmick.)

Get over it and move on.
