I do; You got caught Jerry. Not only did you get caught violating the law, you attempted to do so by knowingly misrepresenting the contents of the shipment:

Reads like you "knowingly" took liberties with the truth.. The key word being "knowingly".. I guess "knowingly" means you were "living the life stile".

Once or twice :-)
I kept asking because Ray initially made it sound like he did it (AT delay mods) all the time. At least until now, this was not permitted at NAR/TRA launches. I guess Ray flies on hos own a lot, without the benefit of NAR/TRA insurance.

criminal.
No, breaking the law makes a person a criminal. Being convicted in court simply makes you a convicted criminal. Here are the definitions, straight from Webster's dictionary:
Main Entry: [2]criminal Function: noun Date: circa 1626 1 : one who has committed a crime 2 : a person who has been convicted of a crime
BTW, I haven't had a speeding ticket in several years despite the fact that I routinely exceed posted speed limits. Does that mean speeding is legal? No, it just means that you can often get away with it. If you tried speeding during your driver's test, you would not get your license. Submitting motors for certification without meeting the legal requirements is like speeding during your driver's test.

I do.
Technically, that depends on how you define "permitted". I've seen launches where delay mods are a recommended procedure.
Correct. I do very little flying at club launches.

You're confusing legality with lax enforcement against minor offenders.

By that definition and given the complexity and sheer width of jurisdiction of so many laws, we are near constant criminals while "living life".

You stated it was zero tolerance. I gave an example of a "constant flow" of transactions.

Ray said nothing about "zero tolerance".
Are you still high on glue?
