Gentlemen and I use the phrase loosely here.Never try to discourage any moder from continuing there work and sharing it with the community. As pointed out by Vandal in his post.If you do not care for a moders add-on you are free to not down load it.And if you have a burning desire to point out there discrepancy's you should at least have the common courtesy to do it in a constructive manor.And if you are an advanced builder you may want to take the time to point out to them how that is accomplished.And not just squash them into the virtual dirt just because you feel like it.Nuff said.

Gunny, thanks for writing this. (and thanks to you too vandal for the initial post)

I've made this a global announcement so all of our members can read this. While the YSFHQ team tries to avoid suppressing feedback from our members, anyone giving feedback/criticism must please make sure their writing abides by the YSFHQ Rules and Terms of Service.

If you have previously posted something that you now feel may have been a bit harsh, please acknowledge your mistake and apologize like Dave so elegantly did. Let's use this as a teaching moment for us all so we can become a more respectful community.
I make this website.

Ok, dumb this down for me. It effects all member of the forum and how we post.

Dave posted this:
Dave J wrote:This is real nice zak. I can't wait to see you perform in this at the air shows coming up!
And then this:
Dave J wrote: It's a Rafale fin :D
How does it get to the point that Dave feels the need to apologise for those posts? This thought resulted in my reply, gunny. I feel he got screwed and had no reason to apologise for those posts at all. I wouldn't think twice about apologising for a post like that.

LF on the other hand, was being nasty.

I'm not starting an argument, just seeking clarification. I want to know that I can post without feeling as though I need to make an apology afterwards.

An apology is personal, and only the person apologising needs to understand their reasoning behind their apology. I don't feel his comments were overly mean or out of order. But, maybe he felt he was jumping on the band wagon or something. Gunny is simply commending Dave for being mature enough to publicly apologise.
But, it was Dave's decision to apologise and he wouldn't have if he didn't feel he needed to. He felt the need to so he did, for me, it's simple.

And like I said, my post wasn't meant to single anyone out. It just so happened that Flash and Dave were the only ones who had posted in the same topic that I chose to have a mini-rant.

The dumbed down version of what Gunny and this announcement are saying is:
"If you don't have something nice to say then don't say anything"

Vandal, you are exactly right. I did feel I was jumping on that band-wagon of hate towards his aircraft thus my apology. I do hope this situation is all cool now.
