The original discussion is about class E airspace where airlines (usually LoCos) who have moved into secondary airports are mixing with light aircraft with no transponders and often no radio. Confusion reigns and it is ony a matter of time before the airmiss reports become a nasty collision. Gliders are part of the problem and have been reported circling in thermals on the approach path quite legally.
