    I don't doubt the knowledge and professionalism of many Pprune contributors and the ban they extended to me was temporary but, judged by any standard, the cruelty meted out to TCT was deliberate, measured and focused to cause maximum hurt and damage. It was sadistically cruel to the point of disbelief. That has to be the verdict of any normal, civilised human - surely ?

    I think that there is possibly more than a bucket load of misogyny in this particular mix.

      John that is your opinion - not necessarily shared by everybody.
      We all of us just post our opinion on various subjects - but our opinions will not agree with all and sundry !

        Just now coming up to 300,000 viewings on "the dark side". And around more postings there than viewings here ..

          I wonder if that tells you more than a little about the character of those viewing on 'the dark side ?' Does anyone think that those 300,000 would be recording their spleen if TCT had committed some unmentionable criminal act that placed her 'outside the pale' of civilised society ?

          I do think that the owners of Pprune need to take a cool look at their boundaries and forum limitations at least on the grounds of good manners and good taste.

          If any here, think that that is somewhat ironic coming from me, of all people, then it serves only to emphasise the seriousness of this latter day equivalent of a McCarthyite witch hunt.

            Or perhaps it proves something else JG - I am at a loss as to why you are so incensed by the TCT thread on prune ?
            If she had been upfront about not flying the trips solo - then none of this would have happened mon ami !
            These sort of trips are pointless anyway so who really cares ; )

              JG - if you concentrate hard on the wording here you will notice it definitely does NOT say 7,000 miles with an extremely experienced pilot in the other seat ; )



              A little misleading ; )

                Prune is an altogether ghastly place.

                I joined in the very early days when I was still at Atlantique, 1998/9? That sort of time anyway. I saw limited application for it from a commercial point of view and some of the early adopters convinced me it wasn't anything I wanted to be a part of.

                Talking to the handful of people I know who are still there, and occasionally dropping in to read a specific topic, my impression is there are still one or two contributors who are worth reading, but it is mostly made up of wannbes, or bored 19-year old instructors sitting in a nasty little shack full of dead flies ticking off the hours before they can get their application in to RyanAir.

                I have heard nothing good said about the moderation either (quiet at the back)

                  Entirely agree with you bazv........ TCT is entirely the author of her own situation.

                  As for Pprune I find it provides some useful, interesting information. Moggy, I fear you are just a curmudgeonly old cynic..........

                    Absolutely Mike - as I said previously - prune is just another forum,but I disagree with Moggy about the inhabitants.
                    You get the good the bad and the ugly on all forums - you just have to work out who the good guys are LOL
                    Probably a larger percentage of active pilots/owners on prune as well !
                    Probably largely depends on which sub forum one frequents really : )

                      Here goes, one more time. TCT might well have overstated. TCT might well have exaggerated. TCT might well have over egged her part in the proceedings, these are human failings implicit in many instances of a wish for financial reward. TCT appears to be entirely the architect of her own misfortune.

                      None of this in any way shape or form, excuses the cruelly unrelenting barrage of insulting misogyny, accusation and character assassination that has been the lot of TCT since her alleged misdemeanours attracted the ravening packs of jackels snapping at her heels.

                      For Heavens sake leave her alone. All that needs to be said has been said. It does not have to be repeated over and over again ad nauseam. In case any of the Pprune posers have missed the point, it is the sustained and unrelenting viciousness of the attacks which is exercising my attention.

                      As far as I can judge, you're all not so much anxious to throw mud and see that it sticks as actually try to rivet it to her name and reputation - such as it is. There is no need for any more, let it die.

                        The FLYER Forum is 99% active pilots and owner pilots, mostly GA but with a good smattering of 'bus drivers'.

                          Moggy, Well done for continuing to absorb the Flak as a Mod. As you know ,you will always be wrong in the eyes of those who have never been "in the stocks" over any decision.
                          I may argue with you , pull your leg a bit and banter about. However, my respect is still there for your application to what you have taken on and continue to handle.

                          And Anovver thing.......

                            That made me laugh, especially after the second glass of Grouse (there's a reason)

                            Yes there are always the immature types who think it enhances their status to slag off the moderators from their keyboard, probably in their bedroom waiting for mum to call them down to dinner. But the real enthusiasts, the committed people like Kev 35 make it all worthwhile.

                            Banter all you like, we get a free issue of a Key Magazine and a rhino hide patch every month.

                            Anyway, off to a funeral tomorrow. I'll leave you in the safe hands of Peter and Bruce.

                            Thanks by the way.

                                  I'd normally call your bluff Grasshopper, but the Grouse and the funeral are inextricably linked.

                                  Cheers!

                                          Erm - you started the thread on here JG - so I was replying to you LOL,we all just post our opinion on here - obviously it is only your opinion that counts ; )
                                          I have not posted on the prune TCT thread,as I said - I am not really interested because the flight was pointless.
                                          If she had said 'I am doing a long distance flight with an experienced pilot in the other seat who can nagivate me round the world' then she would not be having the problems she has now - but she did not do that - so my personal opinion is that she deserves the criticism - I have no time for dishonesty.
