Hi all,

I've not been around so much lately so am just catching up.

There are a lot of new members on the forum which is great for the site, and these new people get my sincere welcome, and we look forward to hearing from you with your Questions, Ideas, Comments and Interesting posts.

You may have noticed that I left a very direct and angry post on the site directed at one new member who made a comment that all "Guests" should be banned from the site.

I totally stand by this and would strongly encourage a sincere apology from that person, to the many Guests that make this site so great.

I would also encourage that the "Rank" on this site is just for fun, and represents nothing more than the volume of posts that have been placed on the site.

Therefore, it may make the site more pleasurable for us all, if eveyone followed a couple of principles :-

- Is your post adding anying at all or is it just to increase your rank ?

- Could your posting be offensive to any member, guest or a section of people ?

Ok, so I broke rule 2 today as CDR probably found my posting offensive but I am positive that it was needed.

This is a fab site, enjoyed by all... it's main strength is that it's fun and cool, but never racist, nationalist, homophobic, sexist or other wise pig-headed..... It also shows a great unity of like-minded people across the world - not just between the UK and the US but also representing the people from all other countries and cultures that join or visit the site.

Sure, now that your chief captain 👏 , suddenly rank means nothing. Wink

You know I am just kidding don't you?

Relax everyone, don't take it so seriously, life is too short to sweat stuff like this.
Take pride in all those you have helped, and the good friends you have made here, and let the little stuff go.

I would have to agree, its not worth hanging on to bad memories. If we did, I personally would never hear the end of it from a few people, not just here, but in life in general. I've been up to my eyes in schtik in life, AND here before, (thanks to a troublesome friend, who will remain nameless...) But hey, eventually it all fades, and life returnes to mornal....SNAFU 😛

btw: SNAFU :Situation Normal, All Funked Up.

Notice, i say funk a lot, in real life too...keeps me from swearing, and it has the same effect, especially at a does Monkey, get loads of weird apprehensive glances with taht one!!!

Good nite all, good ol dad says bedtime 😛

see ya

Thank you everyone here at fly away! Whether we have scuffles or not, i've really enjoy being a member here! Whether we think we earned it or not, rank certainly shows our participation and commitment here. If we reach first officer, captain, or chief, we've certainly made connections and bonds in the air that are pretty deep! I'm glad we can resolve these issues so quickly!

Thank you Ohiosimmer for the opprotunity to fix your computer and get you flying as soon as possible!
Thank you GPS kid for sharing SO many similar flight interest as me but having more experience to share with me!
Thank you Radar man for your prompt replies and showing that people really care!
Thank you Fire emblem for all of your knowledge you contribute!
Thank you watersprite for all of your inspiring crop-duster flights!
And thank you CDR for your exuberance and eagerness to get involved!

(I know i've talked to more but those are all that come to mind right now)
