Why do people stay off the network because of one person doing stupid stuff? Our virtual airspace is huge, you can fly and control anywhere.

Some people have a preference for flying and controlling where they’re most familiar? I can’t say I blame him for refusing to engage if said individual is acting in a grossly unprofessional manner.

#535660 I understand this, but until this is sorted you can fly anywhere in VATSIM, this is the beauty of our virtual world.

I gave up on walloping anyone after I learned that an individual swearing on frequency wasn't grounds for removal. "Not enough evidence"

Hopefully you have filed feedback. I know who you are talking about, and there has been multiple occasions of him breaking rules on the network, and offending countless amounts of people. He's the reason I personally have stayed off the network recently. So file feedback, so that there can be a record of events and hopefully we can get this situation under control.


Certain this is directed at me. You've been overly arrogant since you've gotten into the FAA Shane... I won't say more than that but honestly. This entire conversation has been taken way out of context regarding the nature of what occurred in ZMP. I have way more positive feedback to counteract the statements made above. Number two, I'm obviously not real world and we all try to have a good time on here and, yeah I like to drink and hang and be a _real_ person when I stream 2-3 nights a week ATC... Most people have a great experience flying in. You and I need to talk privately to resolve what you are on about apparently.

#535691 I don't have the slightest clue of what happened. Bit in my opinion, if it is not much traffic and doesn't affect the ATC service I can't see any problem of a bit of "craic" on the frequency. As long as it's not abuse of a pilot/controller I can't see any problem of a bit of drink and flying or controlling for that matter from time to time, it is still a virtual world. And it is supposed to be fun as well. :)

Relax and enjoy the ATC service provided and have fun! :)

To lighten the mood...

I'm going to need to try flying in Germany when Andreas is controlling... but I expect a beer in a giant stein and a plate of hot bratwurst and sauerkraut as a welcome. :mrgreen:
