Didn't red the fine print... we have no rights legally.

Ahh, Orbx Forums - "creating the perfect utopia of like-minded (programmed) community members (fans) since 2008".

 

Seriously, someone over there needs emotional counselling at best, psychiatric help at worst.

Please excuse my ignorance but why would that picture be considered offensive?

Probably because the punctuation is non-existent.

"The Gadsden flag is a historical American flag with a yellow field depicting a rattlesnake coiled and ready to strike. Positioned below the rattlesnake are the words "DONT [sic] TREAD ON ME". The flag is named after American general and statesman Christopher Gadsden (1724–1805), who designed it in 1775 during the American Revolution. It was also used by the Continental Marines as an early motto flag, along with the Moultrie Flag.

Contemporary uses of the Gadsden flag include political movements such as right-wing libertarianism and the American Tea Party, and American soccer supporter groups including Sam's Army and The American Outlaws since the late 1980s."

Noel and I were using it as a form of passive resistance to censorship. Any post even slightly critical of OrbX dissapears. Forum politics.

I'm first generation Norwegian American.  You know what they say about Norwegians.  You can always tell a Norwegian, but you can't tell him much.

Wow, I don't really know what to say. It sounds to me like the ORBx guys are being a bit silly.

Thanks for the explanation. Didn't see that flag before. 

 

Regarding the fine print, what many people forget is that it's just that, a fine print. Selling something with no warranties and refusing support for people who "violate" some random terms which have been made at full discretion of the manufacturer is walking on a fine line. The behavior of this particular manufacturer seems to become more and more erratic, the only reason I can imagine is that their sales are not as expected and they become nervous after the latest migration-gate. Even if you support their terms a simple warning to replace the avatar would have done the job. I'll think twice to buy again from them.

One point...... If these people behaved in a shop, or office, in the way they do on these company forums they would without doubt be asked (or forced) to leave the building. I've seen the way some of these 'banned' twits behave and push the limits and I would not give them anymore grace than Orbx have. Most bring it upon themselves, and they know it quite frankly. Asvim has very tight boundaries, as do most other forums.... Orbx is not a free for all, its a business!, and if you don't like or understand their terms, then stay away, or simply don't engage outside of support.... keep all this personal pathetic garbage to yourself.

Pffff..... Have you read some of the garbage and spam he has posted there?.. among some of the other morons... have you?

 

I know this forum bizarrely allows a very strong (historical) anti Orbx stance (you would not get away with it if it were PMDG or HiFi ect) despite some of its staff (well, one anyway eh Rob) being on the Orbx 'team' but really, some of you lot are pathetic in your antagonism of one of flight simulations most successful, and boundary pushing company's (and that is almost certainly the rub) Horizon, Sim720 and ES not doing well enough eh Chris :rolleyes:

 

This sub forum has pretty much one purpose, and its allowed to continue for that purpose.  If my comments get me banned from here I care not one jot.
