I must admit I wasn't aware of too much bashing, but I do read less here now and keep my head a little lower. Since I joined here over around a year and a half ago many of the old names seem to be very scarce now. But I have seen other helpful ones surface too.
With my move into the commercial arena I have had a bigger focus personally on safety so I suppose that would colour some of my replies.
I remember replying to a post on another (unmoderated) forum where a UK guy posted a video way, way beyond LOS waypoints mission, narrowly missed a church steeple, twice, hovered over residential area, flew towards high tension lines on pylons, the flight took his Phantom between 2 of the power lines, by chance. Everyone said cool, brill, awesome flight. I braved the waters and pointed out the extreme dangers of his flight as no one else was and suggested for his own sake he take the video down, as it would give the CAA a field day. I got severely roasted from all his pilots mates and supporters, got called goody two shoes amongst worse names. I left the forum it got so bad.
I had no real experience of forums before this one. It's a different world. If people said some of the things said here to my face I would smack them. So it's a bit like growing up on the streets, you get tough skin fast.
No excuse for rudeness and lack of courtesy however.
