Mods, offenses like this are now allowed? Maybe is time for Airdancer to take a break?

I agree. Such comments are not welcome nor do I expect to find them on a forum for Professional Pilots.

Maybe Murrenfan and Emma, being accused of trolling or being EK management should also be 'unacceptable'; or perhaps being a 'koolaid drinker'? It's a two way street and Airdancer is entitled to his opinion without the usual BS reactions!

Why make it your personal mission to abuse them on PPRuNe.
Quote:
Slagging off other people for being happy isnt very healthy.
Because it's the done thing on PPRuNe, ever since day 1.

Never have I read a post extolling the virtues of an employer. Neither have I read how "Airline X is the best one to work for!" nor that "The best thing I ever did was to leave airline Y to join X!" Not once did I read a post telling the rest of the pilot community to "Come on in! Join Airline Z, the water's lovely!"

What a sad state of affairs for a professional group of men and women.

Airdancer, if you are truly happy and your statements above are not the ramblings of some troll or management stooge, then I applaud you! Well done! You are raising your head above the parapet to say so, but you are entitled to let people know how chuffed you are with your employment choice, just as much as those who are unhappy with their choices to say the same.

What is not acceptable is for group B (unhappy) to attack group A (happy.)

Group B, FFS, some people are happy! Get over it....

BTW what is Koolaid? Seems to be American. Are you guys all American?

Haven't all the Americans left by now? I know a couple of old guys are just waiting for their kids to graduate and then they are out of here.
Who really wants to stick around this dump? Contrary to posted trolls there are plenty of good airlines out there that are hiring now. Why come to EK?

Exactly, enough with the insults. It's pathetic and as a group of professionals we should be ashamed. The public reads this forum too.

With the utmost respect WK, this is not an example of a two way street and the examples you provided bear little comparison as far as I am concerned, to the comment made earlier. The word 'stupid' is a clear insult to the person it is being directed to whereas a 'troll' or 'koolaid drinker' is far less abrasive in nature and is more like banter in my eyes.

Everyone is of course entitled to their opinion and it should be welcome! Whilst discussions can get a little tense from time to time, there is no excuse for such a direct insult. Maybe I am an old fart but as far as I am concerned, the comment earlier does go past the line of what is acceptable and for a number of reasons too, hence my previous post.

It's not like there's much reputation to protect anymore. The public sees a B777 crash, an A380 attempting to land in a crosswind...might as well get the whole dysfunctional mess out in the open. I used to take a small pride in saying I came from EK, now I don't mention it.

The "prancers" have always been there. Don't get trolled.

Go around after touchdown, then forgetting some pre-landing checklist or another before the CM1 boldly overcame the terrors and landed successfully.
Makes you proud.
Not.
Yeah - get the whole dysfunctional mess out in the open.
Are things really getting that bad?

It has gotten infinitely worse since you left SOPS. Be glad you got out when you did. You have no idea.
Enjoy Down Under.

Well I have been called worse things than stupid and to be honest not even slightly offended, people demonstrate their personalities in what they write, regardless of anonymity and pretense. Nothing to see here, move along

This is honestly a bit embarrassing. I get the issues but to be filled with such bitterness that you'd want to verbally beat the happiness out of others...it's not proportional or reasonable at all.

Same old, old circle of witches that always gather around the PPRuNe campfire cauldron. "Kool Aid" they cackle, as if it's a spell to dismiss those with a different opinion. "Management Troll!!" is shrieked with pointed finger and foaming mouth when an argument is put forth to back up their opinion.

It's embarrassing.

Embrace your inner professional and have a constructive discussion perhaps?

Well said and couldn't agree more!
