Philb. You really are an arrogant bugger aren't you. Lose the chip on your shoulder which has been so apparent these past few weeks, and rather than jumping to discredit people at every opportunity, bear in mind that many of us are still working our way up the career ladder. Some quite succesfully in my opinion too.
Chip on my shoulder? I suggest you look at your own. How is it that so many people in your age group can't bear the fact that some of us "wrinklies" and "coffin dodgers" have a large knowledge base and have been through the mill of experience which has taught them a great deal.
There's nothing arrogant in correcting information that is blatantly wrong or is opinion posted as fact.
There's nothing wrong with working the way up a career ladder - I did the same and have employed a great number of people I've encouraged along the same path - but you need to acknowledge there are people around with a much wider knowledge and experience and when they point out you, or others, are plainly wrong, it is not to discredit but to ensure accuracy.
[quote=7LBAC111,reply=49]Maybe. Maybe not. But I am contributing to A.net in company time. This is our perogative, and for those of us in the industry, A.net can be a valuable source of information, and thus highly relevant.[/quote
Well I spent almost ten years providing the CAA, FAA, DFS, IATA, DG VII of the EU and many other bodies in aviation from airports, through airlines to manufacturers with conferences and seminars which attracted the top management, policy makers and politicians.
My professional opinion about the content of A.Net being of use, compared to the multitude of web pages available which are aimed at professionals, is that there are some threads which can provide business orientated info, but the vast majority are spotter/photography based with a few professionals contributing items of use.
Face it, this is your hobby which you are taking into your job. Not wrong to do that but I wonder what your CEO's view of A.Net and you spending time having a go at me in work time would be?
