A little off topic here, but since we are challenging the expertise of SKL, I figured I would throw this out:
Would SKL be considered an "expert" on medical procedures if he had read a few books and watched a video or 2? Or would ATS rather their "experts"
have first hand experience?
Would SKL earn an expert designation on aviation without ever having flown a plane? What if he just read some books on the fundamentals of flight,
would that qualify him as an "expert" in the field?
I'm a nobody here but just couldn't hold my tongue after reading some of this stuff. SKL is reaching out a friendly hand to newcomers, like myself,
and some of you guys are ripping his credentials apart.... WHY?
If ATS labeled him an expert about the subject, that's something to congratulate him on I would think, or has the iron grip of jealousy seized
Please focus on the content and context of the original post instead of nit-picking about titles? As a newcomer, and a target of SKL's original post,
I think I'm validated in saying this macho crap from a few users to discredit this person speaks volumes about their own character, not his.
SKL- Thank you for the wonderful post and all your hard work and research. Keep fighting the good fight and making some of us feel at home.
