Civ Av About Airport Diff Ok, But Not A Vs. B?

Mon Mar 29, 2010 12:35 pm

Why is a thread about the difference between Stapleton airport and DIA in the Civ Aviation forum ok, but not a thread about Boeing vs. Airbus?

This is comparing a single apple to an orange grove.

A closed airport having been replaced by a new airport in one city is of a much smaller scope than the two largest manufacturers of commercial airline aircraft, affecting most airlines in most countries.


It's not that Airbus vs. Boeing comparisons are forbidden. It's a matter of some users not being able to speak positively about one manufacturer's accomplishments without insulting the other manufacturer for the sake of insulting them. It's off topic, distracting, and based on the input of our members, it's unwelcome.

If users who participate in a thread about two local airports choose to discuss it on the same level as those threads that have caused Airbus vs. Boeing threads to be deleted or locked, the same thing will happen to smaller topics. For example, if several years from now it seems difficult to discuss positive news about DIA without many users speaking badly about Stapleton, our readers would be very weary of hearing about it.

Not only that, a lot of AvsB "heated participants" would always dismiss operational data when it doesn't suit them!   
I guess they believe the flight crew flying the planes fly on marketing data for the performance numbers and not the performance manuals.
When losing situational awareness, pray Cumulus Granitus isn't nearby !
