Unfortunately, one or two persons used the thread to post insults instead of intelligent replies, including a post that was just deleted by the mods here. Understandably, the person attacked responded in kind but it is unfortunate that they are put in this position.

initiating immature, grade school insults ends up results in lost threads sometimes. Immature posters should go somewhere else.

I hate it when dispatch calls and makes me go to work. Don't they know I have more important things to do than fly their silly little aeroplane around?

I know, right? It's, "f#ck you, pay me," not, "f#ck you, work me!" Where do they get off? Clowns.

Just don’t answer. Call back a little later, tell them you were taking a poop and hopefully they called someone else by then.

The "Person attacked" went way, way too far in response.

He actually keyword searched "Divorce" in order to reference an old unrelated thread in which TPC was openheartedly, humbly talking about and giving advice to others regarding his own tribulations. The "Person attacked", who seems to be a fellow pilot, then unfathomably used a man's divorce as some sort of reduction on his personal yardstick and outright stated he hoped his kids went with the other parent.

Let that sink in, over an internet forum thread argument.

Easily the most basic, classless post I have ever seen on this forum the entire time I've been a member. Glad it got deleted, but I'm sure many people saw it, and from here on out I won't respect a word of his opinion.

It would be nice to have a policy from the mods to just delete the few posts that become a argument and keep the rest of the thread. Maybe they can do that with the one we are talking about and then delete this thread. Hate to see a good thread disappear.

So the places people don't want to go are cheap, and the places people do want to go are expensive. Isn't that supply-and-demand? Why would an airline charge $9 to go to Vegas when they can fill a plane at a hundred times that price?
