This is exactly my motivation as well. I have no desire to see RAP
ruined. The other regulars who have posted dissatisfaction with what's
going on here don't wish to see the forum ruined either. I WOULD like to
see it return to the way it used to be however, and since that might not
be happening all that quickly based on the current crop of posters we
have on the forum, and since most of us here come here for the express
purpose of discussing aviation related matters, I feel the suggestion
for alternative forums that are free of what's going on here is not only
justified but prudent.
Those of us who have "left" this newsgroup haven't actually left at all.
All of us check back in quite often to see how things are going. Some of
us, like myself, will either pass if it looks REAL bad, or in my case
anyway, if I see some moron taking my name in vain, I'll post a GFU post
I believe that IF the time comes when what's going on here stops going
on here, those of us who have "left" will certainly return.
I would imagine that this time will come when we open this forum and see
one subject header after another from those who are NOT discussing
aviation in a long list of unanswered subject headers.
But......as of now, it's anyone's guess as to when this will happen.
No sweat for me anyway.
