It's getting tiring...(the flight sim vegans)

Recommended Posts

Can I ask some people to please stop in every opportunity informing us that they won't buy any add-on until MSFS is released? You can find these people in:

1) MSFS preview topics
2) New P3D/XP product releases
3) Previews of upcoming P3D/XP products

They are the flight sim vegans. They won't lose an opportunity to let everyone know that they wont buy anything before MSFS is released.

To these people, can you please stop? It's getting too repetitive and not adding any value to the discussion. Everybody is free to do what he wants with his money.

Keep that information for you.

Thank you.

I have no idea what this has to do with vegans, except that you make it sound like an insult to both, vegans and flight sim users.

You would be surprised how rapidly the sales for FSX/P3D and x-plane add-ons have  already dropped within the last few month and with each video Asobo releases, the decline in sales seems to accelerate.

I think everyone is entitled to express their intentions relating flight sim... these are flight sim forums and they are flight sim news. Its called general flight sim discussion and thats what we are here for. No need to get annoyed by it.

I don't want to insult anyone, but it is well known that the majority of vegans tend to not lose an opportunity to let people around them that they are vegans. You can find many jokes on the internet about that.

Sure, but don't you think the "no buy until MSFS is released" has been over expressed ? Phrases like "I won't be buying anything for P3D/XP again" or "That's probably my last P3D/XP purchase" or "I'm sorry, too late, MSFS is coming". Come on, its getting tiring really..Does it add anything to the people reading about a new P3D/XP product? No, in my opinion.

And if you ask me, what they do is insulting to the rest. Would you go to a product exhibition and say to the attendees, "I won't buy anything like that because there is a new company coming next year in town".

It's tiresome as it doesn't add anything to, usually detracts from, the conversation.

To me, it is like a bunch of people saying what they had for breakfast. Factually correct, but nothing of relevant substance.
