Wow, I knew Ubizoo could get a bit volatile at times but recently it seems that every other post degenerates into a multi-faceted slanging match!

Is it that time of the year? Are we coming into season or something?! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I realise that we are a passionate bunch, myself heartily included but can't we sort out these differences of opinion in a slightly more civil manner?

What good is a haranging match? No-one wins, we all end up hacked off and divisions start to appear in a community which is, lets be honest, not often overwhelmed with a smorgasboard of product variety. Our continuing and escalating animosity will serve only to marginalise our influence and alienate new comers.

What we want is a sim that is as realistic as can be - I think all sides would agree on this point, and there are points in which this game falls short. This MUST be tempered by the fact that it is an ageing and retsricted engine and also no longer Maddox games' primary interest - we are lucky to recieve the many free addons/patches. If someone feels that something is not right with the sim they have a fair point in bringing their opinion to the table, as do you. If you feel that their opinion is ill-informed there are ways to enlighten people without the use of cutting diatribes and facaetiousness and please bear in mind that there is a possibility that you might be that ill-informed party.

Think of all the enjoyment it has bought you in the past years/months. You post here because you hopefully - like I - to share your enthusiasm for this product and generally mix it up with like-minded individuals and have fun.

Lets not lose sight of that.

Well, I couldn't agree more, but I suppose we'll be flamed for feeling this way about it.

The fanboi thing reminds me of how some governments are run. Here you cannot have a different view from the established fanboi bloc without being attacked. Some troll always has to step up and start a fight. Sickening actually.

There are many factors which induce those fights.
One is the fact that it sometimes becomes very difficult to communicate on a forum. It's already difficult in a normal (oral) conversation (with all the voice tones, looks, etc), but more so on a forum.
Another is the fact that some members are more experienced than others. Not especially in aviation-related topics, but also (and I think that's where it becomes more significant) in life. Some people here have raised kids. Some could have, even if they haven't yet. And some... <span class="ev_code_YELLOW">are</span> still kids (no offense meant here).
Yet another is different cultural backgrounds and views. Some people find it fun to pick bones with others who don't share the same cultural references. But again, when preconceived ideas are clearly displayed, it's up to each one to take it with wisdom and detachment (or humor) or take it personally and blow up.
And there sure are many other factors...

That being said, I agree with you. But I've chosen to take all that hubbub with detachment.

Life's not <span class="ev_code_YELLOW">all</span> about flight simming (thank goodness).
