Re: Air Berlin's Not_go-around

Postby ocelot » Wed Oct 25, 2017 9:39 am

*I don't think that "unusual" alone conveys the meaning of "insólito" -even if it is the correct translation according to Them Googles-. I think it is more like a combination of unusual(exceptional?), strange and unexpected. For example: Evanie, Brianie, BBie and ATLCrewboyie agreeing with you at the same time would not be "inusual" (the literal translation of unusual), but absolutely "insólito".
You can't expect machine translation to get this kind of thing right...

I would suggest "singular", except it's kinda fallen out of use in that sense and would sound a bit odd.

3WEie, there:
ON ANOTHER NOTE...I guess we MAY be seeing what happened in those two other 737 crashes in Russia not too long ago.
Fixed.

Maybe Russia should ban go-arounds in 737s.

Another good option might be to ban aeroplanies. That also solves the simultaneous problem with their unwritten altimeter setting procedures, sniffing below minimums, interpersonal power gradients, sabotaged ILS beams and moving trees.

CONCUR. How many total air disasters would have been averted had authorities did listened the first time we asked for a total aeroplanie ban? :x

It would seem that we are somewhat discontented with Brianie (and BBie).

Should I Nair for the men only picnic?

I neither concur, nor disconcur with your statement, but it is acknowledged as relevant.

Regarding your attempt at a gray-fonted (which we do not have here) comment, it would seem to be classic outsider parlour speculation. You should take the question there, where they actually have some insiders regarding that subject.

Disclosure of supposed-to-be-private PM material.

Postby 3WE » Wed Nov 22, 2017 7:22 pm

Ok, it's bad practice to post PM contents...so:

I got a PM from the numero uno moderator, there, indicating that a secondary moderator had complained about a poster who tended to be off topic and off the wall.

It may even have relevance to a recent post in this very thread.

He asked if the forumite bothered me.

I stated "no".

Numero uno moderator replied (paraphrased). "Thank you, I really have no interest in banning people".

It is a way worse practice to talk about other people behind their back and discuss their particularities, especially being a complete ignorant asshat on the subject and Not_knowing him personally, but seeing that the issue has turned more serious, with warnings and the risk of a ban, here I go: As I have expressed in the past (and a forumite there said more directly), I do not think that the language barrier is the main culprit. I know/knew/did knewed people both in real life (one person) and in them interwebz (a few) with very very similar behaviour (fixation with certain subjects, seeing a clear correlation of their particular subjects of interest to every unrelated subject at hand, taking non serious comments or jokes literally -this can also be exacerbated by language differences-, expressing themselves in a convoluted, hard to follow manner, taking innocent things not directed at him as a personal attack -like with a certain forumite's thread on airlines stopping a certain model's operations, at the same time ignoring his other thread of new same model operators-, etc.). In fact, all the examples I wrote are a perfect match of the guy I know personally (just with anime, manga and videogames instead of a plane model, an airline, dates and age, etc.).

So, while of course I can't say if he has an issue/dishability/whatever the correct term for it might be (language barrier right here!) or not -reread bolded section of first sentence, and even if I knew it would not be adequate for me to say it-, I think we should be a little more patient just in case. Even if he is simply a thread hijacker and nothing more, there is a nice "Add to ignore list" button at the public's disposal, I don't understand why people are so bothered.

By the way, I didn't receive the PM. It seems that I'm not considered important with only 53 posts... :cry: :mrgreen:

...stranger yet. When I replied to the genuine numero uno moderator, I copied the pseudo moderator, whom I shall call Un Moderator Del Genio Super...

...Un Moderator Del Genio Super did not reply at all whatsoever (yes, I'm being kinda absolute)...the guy who used to threaten bans is silent. :shock:

Have we beaten him down? Did he lose his moderatorship (or quit?).

Perhaps the drama of rejecting really nice pictures of aeroplanies over pendantic, nit-picky flaws is more of a power trip than dealing with ass hat trolling AD.info folks- he is moody and, interestingly, has occasionally demonstrated a modicum of humour along with making off-topic posts himself!

Alex Snot This said brianw(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qhw-XlTMB5I) was upset with LSD-747-400's crazy, off-topic posts and was thinking about banning him.

He wondered if I was bothered by him.

LSD did get a little weirder than normal about the all-men's picnic joke.

Situation: Normal.

No_Soy_Carlos said the following:

1. A bunch of silly, but true stuff about talking behind the back of the picture rejection forum (and people in general.)

2. That he knows someone much like LSD-747-400 in totally other, non-aviation forum...someone so obsessed with one particular sub topic that they go off-topic/off-context regularly.

3. He does not want to see LSD-747-400 banned.

4. He joked that his low post count does not give him the gold-medallion-frequent-poster status enjoyed by others- where we get to weigh in on banning people.

Brianie's intervention on LH-B747-4's post there:
(Smartass off topic comment aimed at moderators deleted. Don’t do it again LH-B744. You are really sailing very close to the wind.)
Noooooo, I missed it! :cry: :x

LSD-744 seems quite torqued off at Brian...and Brian has his moodiness. I sometimes wonder if the LSD-744 nickname might have some truth...

Indeed.

Had it turned out differently, there'd probably be some crazy US dude with bad German posting about his love of a German-built jumbo jet flown by American Airlines or something...and getting on Brian's nerves at Turbojet flugliner fotos und enthaarungs-diskussionen.com.
