Neformore, SO, NAM, choose and Milt, I found just today in NAM's "hoax" thread in page 28,
an example of good forum manners and Decorum
I've just now completed reading that page 28 from NAM's hoax thread, and that is one of the best pages in ATS 9/11 forum history! MUTUAL
UNDERSTANDING, while still opposed.
So I am sorry to have bothered you with all that textual verbiage.
Everything what had to be said WAS already laid out in the spotlight in page 28.
One thing is remarkable, I followed SO's ADMIN alert advice in the OP, to proceed first to page 27 and his hoax ordeal. Then I read a few pages back,
to find out what all the commotion was about.
And started reading flight forums, aeronautical pages and flight calculation pages.
Remarkably, I concluded about the same as NAM, choose and BenRecluse (Milt) combined.
So, perhaps a thought, to add these lines to that OP-admin advice text :
"To the readers, proceed to read at least page 28 in its totality, for a great example of forum decorum and manners. And my (SO) ultimate
explanation why this aeronautically interesting thread ended-up in this Hoax forum. "
It's the last post on page 28 where SO explained finally why he will not re-open that thread again.
I understand his reason, after a short PM exchange yesterday with SO where I asked him to open that thread again.
But I agree partially with Milt, choose and NAM too, however also understand that forum wars are really not done, and the continuing of that thread in
that form could have easily lead to such stupidity. (It got already tighter again in the last pages 29, 30 and 31.)
Much later, days after I had figured out what in my opinion was intrinsically wrong with NAM's thoughts, I started to read from page 1 and further on
(now at page 4).
After at last reading all the posters their outpourings from deep down their hearts in page 28, I agree with Bill SkepticOverlord's only reason to
ever open that thread again as worded there in page 28 his last post.
Only when a Boeing / FAA approved Vg (V-G) diagram turns up.
I really started to think PF911T had duplicated my posting methods and manners, and send a new Balsamo-nick to pester us.
It turns out we have a new member, NAM, who expresses the same thoughts I have and tries them to spread as honestly as possible.
And two new also well mannered opponents, choose and BenRecluse. All in all, a surprising improvement for us all.
My apologies to all I may have offended with my hastily conclusions, and for my slow picking up on the subject and the main characters.
That should suffice to end posting on that subject in this thread.
We could proceed per PM's, if some feel the need. It still is a fascinating subject. I still have meters of text typed in already, that is now not
appropriate anymore for this thread.
Let's proceed again with the subject of this thread, September 11 - The New Pearl Harbor triple video series.
