Sorry guys, thanks for running the site in the past but the admins attitude towards, and the locking of, the XH558 thread has lost you my support.
It was the only open forum for discussion and sharing of what VTTS are really doing and its loss was a really short sighted move.
Would be happy to reconsider my position, including regular financial support, if things change.
Good luck otherwise.
How many time does it have to be said - not just by admin, staff or moderators, but by anyone (like me) who was actually paying attention at the time, that the '558 thread was locked because of the utter nonsense, boring repetitiveness and pointless one upmanship-willy waving and personal digs between several members, who chose to use the thread as a battleground.
They were given fair warning, which they ignored, and we all suffered the consequences because of that. But it was, IMHO, absolutely the only thing the staff could do, and I am glad that they did, however interesting and informative the thread (occasionally) was.
If it was the only place on the internet where the future of '558 could be discussed openly and honestly, then the minority blew it for the rest of us. And if it was having, or would have had, any impact whatsoever on the future of the aircraft, then that went the same way as the thread had to.
