I was just thinking about opening a similar thread. I refrained from it because I feared to initiate another unecessary flame war. But now that it is said anyway:Exactly my sentiments! Why don't all these people simply exchange phone numbers. I am bored to death.Alex

I know that you are just trying to be humorous, but a statement like that has great potential to start yet another flame-war.

You are right, excpet that I am not amused at all. I would suggest to lock this thread right now. But people should know that this is something at least some people get really tired of. It is not about copyrights, it is not about legal stuff, it is not about freeware authors. This is about the egos of some people, and of no interest at least to myself and I guess a lot of other people here that simply do not speak up.Pls lock the thread.Alex

Do as you feel fit but pls, in the meantime, try to rein in some of these people considering that there's maybe a silent majority fed up with Anniette and Jeff.D

If you are talking about my Ego and how smart you all obviously are, by what you have written I can see this,Well my Ego is very small and gets smaller every day :)Thank you for your concern about something you dislike so much you start yet another post about it :(Anniette xxxxxxxxxx

I think there are a lot of people fed up with the whole topic of people being flamed until they leave. Making a public example of one of the flamers, basically doing to same to him that he does to others, could be a good deterrent for the others.Jeff went too far, and he's getting what he deserves. Let him roast over a slow fire for a while longer.

First of all, sorry Garry, I just gotta...Let me see if I get this right. You're sick of hearing about this. You are incredibly bored by it. You don't even want it around anymore. So just went its starting to die out, you throw some more gas on the fire and fan the flames. Nice logic. And Ray, did I read your message right (along with everyone elses)? Your message to Anniette is essentialy "Just shut up and get back to work giving me free repaints". Utterly amazing.

Well I have to answer this...I shouldn't even bother....just go on this is simply supposed to be fun ... no I can'tNow that is a typical Mike Stone here. You keep elaborating on this forum with endless posts about this and similar topics. And if one person speaks up with a single post that this all might not really belong here you hold him responsible that the topic is warmed up again. Really "nice logic". The thing is that this is not about that single incident. It is not even about Anniette and Jeff. It is about the fact that some people here are not using this forum the way it should be used IMHO which might well be wrong. You, Aniette and other freeware authors have a huge majority of supporters here. They are expressing their gratefulness about the work you are doing on numerous occasions. Yet obviuosly you do not appreciate it but keep on pointing on the small number of spoiled kids that critizise and do not appreciate the work of yourself and others the way it should be. If I give a football to a bunch of kids as a gift and one of them claims that it is not made of leather it will not put my life in misery. It will make me smile. I guess that is what Ray was expressing when he said "do some more". But no you guys have to here it over and over again. That you are great, your work is great, anyone who does not appreciate it is a dumbass. I really can't help but have the feeling that you are enjoying all this. The endless flamewars seem to have become an important part of your life obviously. Noone is feeding them more than you guys do. Maybe you need that for your egos. Just a wild guess. Hard to think of anything else.Now go on and kill me, flame me, ban me start another thread with 56 posts, tell the people that my post finally did make you all stop repainting, I couldn't care less.This is all supposed to be fun, Fs2002 is a game, this Forum should be used to share the fun between a lot of interested people. But it has become an endless soap opera and a navel show. Please, please lets go back to what it should be.Alex

In that case why don't you "spend your time watching your navel" and resist the temptation to start a thread about something that you claim to be disinterested in....... you can always avoid the threads by not opening them (or starting them for that matter) - not too complicated is it ??

No,no the title should be "The Young and Restless". The same story every week. How many times has this been replayed all ready? Always the same victim, just a different assailant each week. Same noble knights to the rescue. Go figure.Sounds like a bunch of high school girls and boys ready to fight over a "he said/she said" issue. Ego and feelings is all I haven seen here for the last several weeks on this topic. No one has made a dime and no one has lost a penny. So what is the big deal? Egos and feelings is all that I see. Yes, AVSIM, please make a new forum for this level of information exchange. It is rapidly changing the look and feel of this one. Do your job moderator (Aidi) and keep the topics and discussions where they belong.This forum can now be called ..."A general discussion forum for all things related to the MS Flight Simulator series." - including damaged egos and hurt feelings.Bob

LOL!Exactly, Gary. These have always been the funniest threads to me - better than joke threads when it comes down to it. Like there's not 12 billion other clickable threads to read at AVSIM, or 12 billion other forums on this system - no, the anti-whiner whiners magnetically gravitate to the very threads they say they can't stand... And then start another thread to moan about their unexplainable magnetic gravitation!:-lolLets see now... There are 25 clickable threads on each page, with 29 pages of 25 active threads to click. hmmm... Thats 725 active threads at any one time. Lets conservatively say there are five responses to each of those threads... Thats, conservatively, 3,625 conversations to respond to. In this ONE forum alone! (Wow, I never actually thought about that statistic before... Thanks AVSIM!)Yep - thank heaven this works out mathematically: I MUST keep disgusting myself (BTW, I like sticking my fingers down my throat and gagging every once in a while) over, and over, and over: Cause I don't have a choice!! Darn forum system.:-lolThank heaven comedy like this can happen at times in the midst of other more serious discussions. It makes life *so* much more interesting.Take care,Elrondhttp://members.rogers.com/eelvish/Boycott-RIAA.gif]"A musician without the RIAA, is like a fish without a bicycle."[/font://http://members.rogers.com/eelvish/B...cle."[/b][/font

Gary,I would. But I am weak. The human mind is weak. And sometimes it is fun. And my navel is even more boring. :-)Alex

If you find it all too much why not just ignore the thread?Or is that too simple an answer, or have you, like others, got a hidden agenda to keep the topic stirred up?Maybe we should ask Tom to create a few forums that are accessible only to those over 25.......mental age that is.

The young and the uselessSee my post above though. I will stop as long as you all stop "relecting" on the past few days or to all of blanks critiques. I had said my opinion on Sunday and Monday but by Wednesday somebody has to post again regarding the topic. All I want to see it people get the proper credit in freeware and people to ask permission. Thats all. Now you can go back to regularly scheduled programming.Jeff
