Does Kyle Rodgers need a hug?

Recommended Posts

Good Afternoon Everyone,

 

I was just wondering if others agree with my thoughts the Mr. Rodgers needs a hug...

A hug you say. He certainly needs something.

 

Perhaps something that rhymes with hug, a drug for example.

 

An anti sarcasm drug, or a super powerful anti didacticism potion of alien origin.   :h0120:

 

 

Just kidding of course. :Hug:

haha - I truly appreciate the support and concern.

 

Hugs can be directed to my inbox, provided they're good natured (I enjoy a good meme or gif).  For as much sarcasm as I dish, I think people believe I hate fun.  I really don't.

 

In fact, I love fun.  I used to teach dance (oddly, this is actually a fact), and this is dude was a graduate of my class (sadly, not a fact):

All people should get what they deserve.   :rolleyes:

 

Just my 2 cents.   :P

 

I love it ... sarcasm raised to an even higher level.

 

While I've always appreciated his (yeah, man, we're talking about you while you're in the room) depth of knowledge and willingness to help and teach, I used to react vicerally to Kyle's sometimes over-the-top delivery method -- sort of like a gift basket shot at your head from a drone. Now I hardly notice it. For me it's become part of the gestalt of AVSIM. Also, it's obvious that for a while he's been trying to dial down the tone a notch or two, so kudos for that. All-in-all I consider him a very valuable resource to the flightsim community. He's a giver.

My co-workers are all staring at me now because of the laugh that just came bursting out of my cube.  That's hilarious.  Thanks for making my morning.

Thanks!  I really have been - partially at the behest of Tom, partially at the requests of people here, and partially because I re-read some of my old posts and think "man, that definitely could've been stated better/more nicely/etc."  I find it sad that I'll occasionally avoid going back into a thread because I know that I had been somewhat of a jerk in my prior response.  I don't like that feeling, particularly because it's my own internal admission that I was wrong, so I've been trying to avoid getting to that point.

This is why I usually stick to beer.  Admittedly, my friend sent that gif to me saying that it reminded him of my dancing, which was exhibited on a particularly drunken night in Italy (the culprit in this case being rum).  I'll just say that snowboarding the next day was rough, though entirely worth it to tough out the hangover:

I definatly have noticed Kyle dialing it back a notch. Hopefully some of his detractors will notice the same.

 

He has very informative videos on his YouTube account, shares what he can from the beta tests and calls his dog home slice. Sounds like a "bro hug" is in order!

Truth!  Många tack!

Thanks for subbing.  It's cool to see how much of a response I get over there.

Good to see that people are noticing.  Sometimes I'm not sure if I've done enough.  Heck, I even changed my avatar pic to one with a smile in it so that I seem less intimidating.  I'm really blunt in speech, and I'm sure text just makes it seem that much more like a cudgel.

Thanks for watching that stuff over there.  Glad they're seen as informative, as I know they often carry a decent rant or two (or five).

 

Also, I'm not sure if home slice has more of a following there than I do...haha.

 

 

A Long distance hug from India

 

Thanks!

 

 

 

 

 

...an, despite the awesome support here, I have to acknowledge that this thread does seem a little self-serving and my posting in it could come across the wrong way.  While I know that I spend 99.999999% of my time on AVSIM here in the PMDG section, it's actually the PMDG forum meant to discuss PMDG-related stuff.

 

I really do appreciate the support and light-hearted banter, but I don't want to stray too far from the forum purpose.  Then again, if this helps avoid other threads spinning out of control, then by all means...

I suggest you all read the manual on hugging before sending Kyle any.

I suspect that those who can't deal with Kyle's style (sorry, couldn't resist) weren't alive in the days when Snave and Captain Slarty ruled the earth...

 

Those of a certain age will know what I mean.

If you ask a question on here without Googleing it first, then you will meet Kyle in an un-huggable style..  :Praying:  :Alien:

In all seriousness, I did tell a friend that her hugs sucked and to take a lesson from a mutual a few weeks back...it's not just the forum that gets the blunt treatment, though she could at least see my facial expressions.

I remember the names, but I don't think I ever cross their paths.

Maybe not un-huggable, just bristly.  Then again, I wouldn't want to hug bristly, so yeah, I guess un-huggable....haha

Oh wait, you are in fact writing a tutorial on the proper application of hug, right Ryan?  :Hug:

So glad that this thread is not going South as one not so long ago that tore into Kyle. Shows that a good sense of bonhomie and humour(UK spellings, please) does exist side-by-side technical know-how.
