euh, is this website with all the different fora not a general aviation forum already?
Maybe I missed the point.
Suggestion to OO-PAL:
try us out, shoot your shot, please become active and send some topics. Under "forums" you find all kinds of different items.
Most of us are pretty friendly - depending if we had our regular supply of Valium
And if somebody crosses the line, he/she gets a personnal reminder by the moderator. I got one - just one I think, hope, at the beginning of my membership.
By my membership here I came in personnal touch with some interesting people, even business wise.
You will find out that not all subjects will receive similar attention by members. It is quite democratic: the people rule. ( and the moderator is emperor
) But I mean, don't get upset if you launch a subject that attracts few response.
But just do it, you can do little harm.
And bashing is quite seldom. It has happened and it builds up gradually untill the moderator steps in or the basher feels the wall of resistance by the majority. Members who are looking for adoration because they invented the hot water soon find out that they belong somewhere else.
And don't fear the integrity of the moderators. Personnal details are never published, not even in heavy cases. So, it is quite a mature environment.
