    Okay, to avoid any confusion around here, there are a few rules that must be followed:

    1. NEVER disparage anyone's service to their country. Call him a putz, tell him he's full of crap, whatever. But insulting anyone's military service will be grounds for immediate banning. There will be no appeal.

    2. The administrators and moderators run a fairly tight ship. We do let some banter go on for a bit, but when any one of us tells you to settle down, just do it. Do not pick a fight with any one of them, because they stand pretty united, and you WILL lose.

    3. If you have a problem, question or beef, you can PM any one of us for assistance, if it is handled with respect.

    4. Disagreements will happen from time to time and some of these debates can get heated. The personal attacks are a sign that your facts or data are weak, or you are not doing a good job at expressing your point of view. This should not turn into insults and personal attacks. Warnings will be issued for infractions.

    5. If you decide to start a fight with someone, be prepared to take your licks. This is the World Wide Web, the new "old west" and it can get rough on the web at times. Don't be thin-skinned. We will watch for this kind of activity and do our best to tone it down before it gets out of hand, but mods/admins can not be everywhere, all the time.

    Please take some time reading through some threads and get a feel for the place. Use the search function to look for threads of interest or if you have a question. There have been a lot of topics discussed here and some of your questions may already be answered. Plus reading through some of the threads will give you a better idea of who the people are and what subjects they know well.

    Enjoy, have fun and be respectful. Any questions, feel free to ask.

    Also, as an important first timers notice, if you are having trouble with your new account, send a message to [email protected].... Do not create a new account as it will be noticed by us Moderators.... You are allowed ONE account and one only... Secondary accounts trigger an alert for us....

    We will ban the second account and issue an infraction against the primary account....

    Seem's how this link has been started and lots of people should read it. I want to point out something. I AM NOT A WEB MONITOR!!!!

    It seems a few people think I run the technical section. I do not. All though at times I do feel Ive taken over abit. Its run by FlyboyJ and the other monitors. I do help out with uploads for people who cant figure it out and I have uploaded things for other people.

    I do not know what I will post next although something may or may not be in the works. Easiest way is for people to write there question on the message board. I dont mind person questions but comments about people on the web needs to go to the monitors.

    PS I stand 100% by the monitors and yes I am Ex-military!!!!!!!!

    Thanks
    Micdrow

    hmm, he's back. I suspect a lonely 40 year old virgin who humps his pillow for fun or a 15 year old boy who's confused because he likes men. Get a life c*m guzzler.

    You know folks, I first joined this forum because I thought there was a group of like minded, mature individuals who enjoyed talking about and sharing their knowledge of WW2 aircraft and aviation related subjects but as I sit here and read this particular message I wonder if the qualifications for admittance into this site shouldn't include a mental stability and/or I.Q. test. Perhaps a personality profile would help. You could include questions like "Are you a 25 year old man who likes to put other men in pillows and throw them in the river?" or maybe "Are you a 25 year old who thinks he is a "man" but by his own writings shows that he is lacking one or more of the most fundamental attributes of "manhood" MATURITY and CIVILITY". If you answer "YES" to these questions or had to have someone else explain them to you then you should pursue other endeavors. What do you think folks?

    Unfortunately we don't have the technology to weed out the retarded and deranged. We could only deal with these folks as an afterthought so if you ever meet one of these "individuals," feel free to to give them a free lobotomy...
