Can we argue about planes now???
Maybe, if you can write that message on a 2X4 and get somebody to lay it across the head of Mr Proctodork.
You're just hitting your head against the wall complaining about it. This crap happens every winter.
Apparently people can't fly and the glue is drying on the latest project and the flightsims got boring so let's all just post off-topic crap in the newsgroup.
That's why nowadays most people frequent moderated websites to get their RC fix. Have you noticed newsgroup traffic is but a fraction of what it was 2 years ago?
See you at RCGROUPS OR RCU ;-)
Donduk, see if you have message filters in your news reader. I use Mozilla and it is under "Tools->Message Filters". I allows you to create a kill file for subjects and/or users who continually spam. Has worked wonders for me.
By the way what kind of plane do you want to argue about? :) I'm a glider pilot so if there's an engine on it I thinks it's crap! :) :) Unless of course you are a tow pilot pulling up my scale sailplane, then I love you and your wonderful airplane :)
My plane can beat your plane! Neener neener neener! ;-) I agree tho. My filter list is getting beyond insane. If this crap continues much longer, the filter will contain most every word in the english language.

You misspelt "Sanawa" ;^)
Vince, You are just going to have to make a choice. Engine or no engine, this fence sitting must come to a stop. :>
And all this time I thought the correct spelling was 'HITECH'
When I retired in ought '94 my coworkers presented me with a gift certificate for a glider flight. I mentioned to the pilot that I held a (long unused) private pilot's license, so he let me fly the ship - on final, at 300', he said we were too high, and I should make a 360. Any IC pilot in the crowd might wince, as I did, at such a maneuver at such a low altitude, but I did and it worked fine. I still prefer that prop in front, though :-)
Unlike you Dan I have not PP cert. BUT, I've been in a Cherokee 6 when it did a loop(intentional).
I know WHY IC aircraft have propellers. It's to keep the pilot from getting hot and sweating!
Our flying clubs are not political platforms either, but we manage to talk politics their. Those who do not want to discuss politics simply ignore the conversation.
I agree but do we need to have at least 12 copies of the thread running simultaneouldy cross-posted to a dozen or so other groups?
I also have long unused private and glider pilot licenses. I have to make due with models for now. Flying gliders is definitely a different experience from power. You get one chance to hit your landing. There's none of this "oops, blew that approach, firewall the throttle and try again".
I personally enjoy the challenge of unpowered flight. There's nothing better than specking out on a great thermal and then bringing it home on the spot.
Of course all you power guys can enjoy this too, just get some altitude and then turn that silly noise maker off :)
vince...spoken like a true scale glider guy. you guys complain all day long about the noise, but boy its all smiles and good cheer when there is a tow release involved. i'd much rather listen to the chorus of a DA 100 than the constant whine of a scale glider guy wishing he could fly in silence.
tow and sailplane pilot,
Paul, Have you not heard the term "The more the merrier!"? VBG!
More than likely, you're using Outlook Express to view this group. If so, you're aware that you can "Block Sender" quite easily, but that only blocks a particular sender and not the other crap posted in the "nuisance" thread by other senders who keep the stupid thread going under the same subject. However, you can also click on the "Message" icon at the top, and then click on the "Create rule from message". This is where you can specify that certain words in the subject (the subject itself) are used as a kill filter. So on these really stupidly long nonsense threads, creating a message rule based on the subject will get you where you want to go.

I don't care that much about filters when the REAL problem is the posters.
Have it your way. You can spend less than a minute entering some typical key words of stupid thread subject words and never see them again, or you can let all the trash cascade onto your screen. Doesn't bother me how you want to spend your day.
Ok, Mr. Know-It-All, give us a list of words that will always filter out the crap and not any of the worthwhile posts.
