Just as you are free to NOT read people's negative comments about the A380!
Obviously my point of contention has been missunderstood.
Quite simply put, my issue was not the comment itself, but rather that it was placed in a thread with which the thread starter had wanted to share the video of the crosswind trials in Iceland.
On an open forum such as this I look forward to reading peoples opinion, it's one of the joys of being on this site.
However, as an aviation enthusiast it has become increasingly difficult to read a thread on this site that hasn't been corrupted from it's original thread starters intent. It's obvious that people are getting irritated by this problem on this site and yes, maybe I have somehow contributed to this by responding in this case.
It seems any thread with discussion of the A380/787 or Airbus/Boeing turns into a complete mish-mash of convoluted garbage and NEVER stays on the track it was intended. It just results with angry people and likely unintended insults and comments being flung around.
If the thread header was "A380 is ugly" then the comment would never have bothered me, does anyone understand what I'm getting at?
Anyways, prior to these most recent posts I had in fact sent a private message to Tonyban to explain that my comments were not directed personally at him and that I did not necessarily disagree with his comment, it was only the placement in this thread that I had issue with.
Hope everyone understands where I'm coming from....and of course, this is all entirely my opinion too and open to scrutiny and dissection as you all see fit.
