Hi,Hope you have a sense of humour cos' you've been 'ad mate. (It's a bit of cheap and nasty advertising) We're talking about FS Addict a new creation i.e; a forum post whereby you can admit you're an addict... FS that is... Please don't post a negative.. there's been far too much of that lately ! It's just a bit of fun.AFOX :-)

So, one question? How is it that you feel you have the right to intentionally waste people's time by misleading them?I am truly confused "mate"John-PaulToronto

Hi,I respect every opinion and listen to every viewpoint. But, if you think having a sense of humour and engaging in a bit of fun in this wonderful hobby of ours is a bad thing, then I really feel sorry for you ! The thread is I refer to is a breath of fresh air and some of us are in dire need of a laugh ! I dearly hope that there aren't too many simmers out there, or pilots for that matter, who share your miserable view.AFOX :-(

".....waste people's time by misleading them?...."I feel you need to ease up just a bit... I can't say my time in the forum is fighting world hunger, putting bread on the table, or even showing quality time with my family. So in that sense, just by being here it's "time wasted." On the other hand, I enjoy the forum for seeing people come together, and as an escape from world hunger, the struggle to put bread on the table, and from the odd craziness that my family can sometimes cause. In that sense, many threads are time well spent. I enjoyed being 'ad in this thread.... It's nice to chuckle about something.... That's a good use of my time....-John

Thanks John,The thread may have been a little OTT but it was well-meaning and created in good spirit. I really believe that the forum majority share your reassuringly relaxed view and is more than happy to indulge in a little tomfoolery once in a while. Thanks again for your timely and calming contribution.AFOX :-wave

AFOX,I'm sorry to have to disagree with you on that one.If you want to crack a few jokes and have some fun - that's fine.However, misleading simmers and luring them into a thread under a false title is NOT funny.It appears that your sense of humour is a bit twisted and too thick for my own personal taste.Good day to you.Twister

Hey !Can all the good fun loving guys quickly leave this thread and I'll dynamite it with the miserable guys still on it. Great way to cheer up the forum in one fell swoop. Anyone else who got out the wrong side of the bed today please join in. Be my guest and 'talk' amongst yourselves. Meanwhile the rest of us will go and listen to the good stuff elsewhere without your interference.AFOX :-lol

Um sorry the joke here needs to be a bit more obvious? Otherwise it is not funny, not because one does not have a sense of humour, but because not everyone has seen whatever thread you are referring to... And even so it is not obviousKitty MercuryCathay Pacific Virtual Pilot (CX252)

Yeah Kitty,I realise that now.. I was refering to the 'are you addicted to FS thread' under checkpointcharlie but it obviously hasn't worked so I do apologise for that. For the record I wrote it by myself with no encouragement from anybody else. Thanks for a fair comment anyway.AFOX :)

Some people may have been irritated because they went and searched for this alleged "utility" in the libraries, searched for the checkpointcharlie thread which was indicated as being "below," which wasn't at the time that they read your "utility" post, or when finding the thread and realizing what it was all about, were not amused. While the "who is addicted to flight sim?" thread may be humorous, aren't most of the posters here already addicted? That's not to take away from the intent of that thread, which in and of itself is humorous, but I think that by you claiming that there was a new "utility" was misguided. Perhaps you might have used another term to describe it.And yes, *I* was one of those who went and searched for this new "utility," didn't see any such thing, and then had to find the thread in question to see what you were talking about, only to see that it was a poor joke.Yes, I was "had," and not amused because of the wasted searching.

PS: To anyone else who comes onto the thread:It didn't work, It's dead, I made a mistake, I apologised, and that's it. I can do no more than that. Thank you. AFOX.

I would be more than happy for this thread to be removed so noone else would waste their extremely valuable time reading it. But I can't do that unfortunately - It is a job for the forum moderators. I submit my final apology and if it's not good enough for certain members of the community as a whole then I'm sorry. I do not intend to commit Sepuku and will continue to add my comments and views (albeit with more restraint) to the myriad of interesting topics here present on this great forum.Thanks for listening AFOX :-roll

>I would be more than happy for this thread to be removed so >noone else would waste their extremely valuable time reading >it.Thanks for the sarcasm. So much for your bogus "apology."I'm not going to waste any of my "extremely valuable time" explaining my viewpoint to you any further.>I submit my final apology and if it's not >good enough for certain members of the community as a whole >then I'm sorry.Is this one as valid as the first? Apparently, that one was essentially meaningless due to this sarcastic message of yours.>I do not intend to commit Sepuku and will >continue to add my comments and views (albeit with more >restraint) to the myriad of interesting topics here present >on this great forum. No one here has asked you to commit a "ritual suicide," or has indicated that you should not continue to add your comments or views. Are you being a tad oversensitive now? "I respect every opinion and listen to every viewpoint."Do you *really?* Right...except when it differs from yours.

Edam,can you pls tell me what is wrong with you? The guy tried to be funny and it did not work out. He made a mistake, which was no big deal in the first place. He made a decent approach to apologize.Pls take into account that English might not even be his native language. You also have no idea about his age whatsoever. This really tightens up here in a way that I cannot accept at all. This site is supposed to be fun. Sorry if not anybody is up to your high moral standards. Now could you please ease up a little. Some people here should really get themselves checked.Alex

Hi Edam,I totally agree with you.I wish that inconsiderate and immature pranksters could think twice (if they're capable of doing so at all) before posting their stupid jokes which apparently amused no one (it did waste everybody's time searching for an imaginary add-on).On top of everything, they have the nerve of posting a bogus and sarcastic apology.Well, Mr. AFOX, you may keep posting your useless views and ideas on this forum - I for one won't be reading them.I've been had by you once - it won't happen again.I think that humour is a very welcomed thing on the forums, what you did wasn't humorous at all - you just laughed at our expense with a silly trick of yours.Twister

This is the most ridiculous discussion I have ever read here :-).What is it. Not enough sex? Some serious event in the childhood?Alex

My last response was just tacked onto the bottom of the thread and wasn't directed at you. My apology was genuine and still is. Judging by your response, you may want to consider your own 'sensitivity' for I can see now how easy is to fire some people up even when you had no intention of doing so. My heart really goes out to anybody who makes a mistake in this community even when they have apologised. Nobody's perfect, that includes you... I might have the jump on you however, because I can forgive and I'm proud of it. I can see that even two apologies, whether you believe they are sincere or not, still aren't good enough for you and you will look for the argument in anything I say from this moment on. For me, however, after reading your last response, the whole thing hasn't been such a waste of time after all. I have a much better understanding now of what can happen here when you screw up. I'd hate to be a developer who doesn't meet your exacting standards.AFOX.

Other's may differ.>He made a decent >approach to apologize.Pls take into account that English >might not even be his native language.I ALWAYS take that into account, but his apology was followed by another post that made it seem insincere to me. >You also have no idea >about his age whatsoever.Excuse me, but when did I mention, or imply, anything about "age?" >This really tightens up here in a >way that I cannot accept at all. This site is supposed to be >fun. Sorry if not anybody is up to your high moral >standards. Now could you please ease up a little. Some >people here should really get themselves checked. "Morals" now, too? I don't remember mentioning anything about morals, or that I have "high standards" either. Perhaps you're just trying to give your own spin to my postings, just to inflame? I gave my opinion of his "joke" which some seem to agree with. If you cannot accept that, so be it, but twisting what I have said, or intended, is not appreciated. And where do you get off making the following comments?"This is the most ridiculous discussion I have ever read here .What is it. Not enough sex? Some serious event in the childhood?"And you have the nerve suggesting that other people should be "checked?" Perhaps you should take your own advice. "High moral standards" indeed!AFOX,You're another one with the assumptions. Why are you bringing up developers? What has that got to do with the subject at hand?Bah! I'm done with the both of you. Neither of you have a clue.

There is an old folk tale about a fox and some cheese.. I was reminded of it ... I can't imagine this forum without this genre of banter, and although it seems useless, it provides us with a moment in which we can reflect on the spirit of nobility prevelent in modern humanity.Lets all take a moment ...:-)PeteEdited for mysterical reasons... !
