I donít see personal attacks. I see criticism of the way you conduct yourself of this forum. Calling out trolls is just part of living on the internet.

When the only thing one every contributes to the board are mindless postings of links, nearly always with a big thumbs-down emoji, and nearly always offering little more than popular media muddied waters and drama, it's not all surprising that posters won't be impressed.

The thread in question regards a TCAS event, but is filtered through popular media accounts that lend little more than teenage-style drama to the story, which focuses on a 21 year old passenger who has never flown, and who felt scared. the actual event was a single-encounter RA which was handled properly by both parties, and involves a 600' altitude change by the subject Allegiant flight. The drama as added by the passenger who has decided to never fly again, and a flight attendant injury. Neither point to improper handling or anything other than a correct response to a conflict resolution.

If the original poster ever offered more than links to articles, or actually contributed something, if (s)he didn't make every thread initiation with a big orange thumbs-down emoji, and if (s)he managed to refrain from the constant barrage of political commentary (which shouldn't be here anyway), and if the original poster actually contributed anything to the discussion, the responses from other posters might be a bit more accepting. Doggedly, the original poster refuses to do any of that, and has for quite some time.

The result is predictable.

Hey Cupcake,

The reason I posted it wasn't because an alleged RA happened, it was that FAs got injured in the process. That is abnormal and worthy of discussion. Try and think critically a bit, eh?

I can't see the original poster's response, because I've blocked them on my ignore list, but is it possible in a thread about personal attacks, (s)he (the non-pilot who posts only links and contributes nothing), has made a personal insult?

Not unexpected, but when that's the most one can contribute, the bar is already set low.

And you have a lot of personal experience with RAs, right?

As much as most other pilots... in the sim and other visual avoidance maneuvers without an RA

Sonic,
What your posts lead me to think regarding what your world view and conclusions are, on many things political, social, and economic, is that you are wrong on just about everything.
No society can function with what you appear to advocate regarding the relationships and mores of self/others and the shared commons.

That being said you are, at least in what I have read, civil. More so than many who post on this board.
Your positions on most things annoy me. Too bad for me. Being annoyed, irked, offended etc by the opinion of others is the price we pay for living in a more or less free and civil society.
Keep your civility. Expand your learning to books more so than the internet. (Thomas Berry, Peter Turchin, Donella Meadows, Wendy Brown, Vaclav Havel, and Pope John Paul 2 might be a good change of pace)

So, as a participant in civil society, carry on.
