I don't see what the fuss is about. I don't mean with the moderation side of this 'debate' as from what they've said I think they've shown themselves up somewhat but as many have stated before me, it's their trainset and they can bash it around as they want. What I mean is that looking at the front page of 'threads in forum' 70% of the threads in play as I type this have pretty much nothing directly to do with aviation, mil or otherwise so it looks like they've listened in part to whats been written and backed off.

Beagle...Your last post must have got you so animated that the biscuit crumbs must have been tumbling off your cardy...working class indeed!

I did, of course, mean that appalling goat nonsense.

Truly dire.

Well, what a thread.
I joined Prune back in 98 or 99 (last days of Bruggen) when a Station Exec told me about a scandal that was going on, over an incident on the Sqn near the golf course.
I fell in love with Prune immediately, reading about so many aspects of aviation “IN ALL FORUMS”
Serious, humorous and emotional (I openly admit that I have cried several times).
I have posted several times on the Mil forum (mainly on a Friday night after a few beers). I have even started a couple of threads, which did wind a few people up, but hey, it was good fun and excellent discussion.
But over the last 12 months I have seen the military aircrew site go downhill rapidly.
I am suggesting that the number of whinging/argumentative threads have become a joke.
Certain people here just seem hell bent on slagging somebody or something off.
It just seems that this forum is no longer a place to discuss a matter, whether it be aviation or military matters, without it degenerating into a pathetic go at each other.
In my opinion, the people that have contributed to this problem are mainly people who have joined Prune in the last 12 months. (Not all of you – some have given some very good contributions). I think the JPA thread invited a lot of new people who just wanted to moan.
A few years ago only genuine people used Prune. Then it became popular and attracted all the knobs of the world. You know the kind of people I am talking about. They are the ones that said the world was flat!!!!!
But I will always remember Prune for what it was.
Well done the moderators. You have done a superb job over the years and Thank You.
Bye the way……. PS. I am leaving the Royal Air Force after 29 years. I really hope “Prune – Military Aircrew” carries on so I can reminisce over past years (and remind myself of why I was glad to leave in the end).
Oh and PPS – Yes I have had a few beers on a Friday night and this reply is probably out of date. Sorry.

I know I said I wouldnt be back but i was interested.... Beagle you remind me of that chap in the shawshank redemption....... Institutionalized. If PPRuNe was to no longer exist I suspect you would be found swinging, Perhaps a more suitable name might be say 'Brooks'
Apologies if you havent seen it.

Indeed.

Sirsaltyhelmet, such language may be acceptable on that tawdry little website which you allegedly moderate, but is not acceptable on PPRuNe.

And do tell your fellow 'moderator' colleagues that 'nob' does not mean the same thing as 'knob'. If you're going to insult people, at least be accurate.

This is the sort of comment one reads on that 'other' site:

"Right listen in, thems lots at prune are a bunch of toffs thems bannded me jus becos i teld some old pilot i wud snap his spine"

If the actions of the PPRuNe moderators of recent days have served to rid PPRuNe of such folk, then all credit to them.

Quotation appropriate to this thread

Given the current tone of this thread (and I continue to be amazed it being allowed to continue), the following quotation seems to be very appropriate:-

"Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, small minds discuss people."
Eleanor Roosevelt

I think that Tony Blair's involvement in Iraq is a bad idea.

At least my mind has a large span

BEagle,
I thought you were an educated man and have enjoyed some of your previous posts, but a statement like the above shows a distinct lack of education or condescending bigotry.

To bunch a group of people, of whom you do not know, into your own self perceived upper hierarchical class structure, shows a very ugly streak of discrimination.

Obviously, you do not understand 'Ironic Humour'.

E-Goat exists as a light hearted site, where one can engage in a discussion about ANY subject matter. Whether it be aviation, light banter, topical, 'Ironic Humour'...etc. and believe it or not, sometimes in an educated manner! The binding theme...that we are all in some way or other, related to the RAF. There is one simple rule, if you do not like a thread, do not read it.

You wish to make PPRuNe a class divided site, yet still refuse to even make a donation? This smacks of contempt for the guys who work hard to keep your, well used, site up and running.
It seems that, even now, after you have retired from the RAF, you still think that everything should be handed out to you on your proverbial silver platter.


"A forum for the professionals who fly the non-civilian hardware, and the backroom boys and girls without whom nothing would leave the ground. Army, Navy and Airforces of the World, all equally welcome here."

I suggest you start your own forum, where you can pick and choose who enters and you can moderate it according to your own outdated values.

Welcome to 2007.

Are you really trying to say that his posts were ironic?

I think not.

There appears to be a few members here that seriously need to try and extract themselves from the darker recesses of BEagle. I think you know who you are?

Take that back!

Disrespect to the site owners is one thing, but the members of this site will not stand for anything less than blind devotion to the altar of BUgle!!!

And I think, now that this has become an internecine insult-fest between Mil Aircrew inhabitants, it's time to close the curtains...

It's been fun, chaps.
