There is no doubt one has to sort through a lot of posts to glean good information just like on many other forums.

Some Boeing designs have created much more than 6 pages of pilot discussion on Pprune in the last 18 months. I am convinced that if the Ethiopian pilots had thoroughly read the Lion Air crash thread, they would have had the info(not supplied by Boeing) to prevent the conditions that led to the second accident ie…….leave the flaps extended and there will be no MCAS activation. Can you believe it? The golden nugget to prevent a disaster(or the subsequent follow-on situation that led to the disaster) was on Pprune. Would have saved many lives and perhaps 20 billion for Boeing.

A pilot learns only the basics of aviating to get their license and has many gaps in knowledge even when completing a type rating. One can learn so much(but also gain so much bad info on places like this) but it takes initiative and time. Just like in so many other facets in life.
