That was disgusting.
I came to Greg's defense ~10 years ago when he was being attacked by "Scary Gary" and other thankfully "former" members.
I now regret that support.
This was so uncalled for.
I consider Vance is a very good friend, and I was shocked when I realized he was the target of this rant!
What a gentle soul!
I love the way Vance prefaces everything with "in my opinion"... , just to make it clear that he is not "in your face" with his comments.

This bile should be deleted right away. It does not belong here.

...Now, if the political threads could be deleted too (Which, by policy, should not be on here to begin with) It would be a such a breath of fresh air!
Why, why, why...... does there even need to be an "off topic" catagory? Just gyro related. That's all we need. And we will all live happily ever after...

I believe the "off topic" category is for the explicit purpose of keeping non-gyro stuff out of the other gyro threads. It's sort of like having a graffiti wall instead of just saying "No graffiti"

I understand.
Its just that I can't think of any other aspect in my life where i spend time with the type of people that would feel the need to deface somethig nice with graffiti.
Seems so juvenile.
I guess I like living in my soft bubble.

So, if one proceeds one's comments with "in my opinion" you can say whatever you want, because (Cancel Warrior types) everyone is 'permitted' to have an opinion. Right?

Nobody is suggesting that as a shield for inappropriate content. Inserting IMHO in advance of the original post would do nothing to change its tenor.
What typically follows "in my opinion" in posts from Vance is not ad hominem attacks, but some technical statement on which he perceives there could be differing views or interpretations.

an other question, what does it is like to first land perched at 1.5 m high ?
what precaution did you take to anticipate the effects of this difference ?
Try a Sikorsky S-58 (13 foot)🤪 from a Huey (7 feet low skids):sneaky: then an R-22 [5 foot eye balls to surface) 😁 all on the same day
