Egregious trolling on TS

First I know that TS is TS and generally there is no recourse.

Today some grade 1 person was at SFO while I was controlling. After he landed he parked himself at an angle at the intersection of 28L and 01R in front of a plane that I had LUAW. He dropped off tower / ground and sat there. I finally had the waiting AC depart through him.

He then moved to the intersection of 28R and 01R to try and block someone on short final.

Curious if in the most egregious cases mods or someone else take any action?

As an aside he had 288 violations. A precise 1:1 ratio with his 288 flights and nearly a 2:1 with his 147 landings. At least he’s going for some math aesthetics.

Sorry man, but there is nothing to be done, only solution is to keep getting better, and do IFATC some time… 🤷🏻‍♂️

Reminds me of casual server

Don’t control at KSFO in the meantime. :)

Yep, sorry about the bad news… 🤷🏻‍♂️

Unfortunately this is the training server as some have noted already. If this happened again to this magnitude or if you experience any other sort of trolling activity where someone is intentionally disrupting traffic, please PM myself or any of the other moderators. Thanks!


Usually I have pretty good luck at SFO. It’s better than LAX. :-)

Thanks. If this ever happens for an extended period in the future (this person left after five min or so when there was a lull in traffic) do you want the PM real time?

Seen lots of other bad behavior on TS but this was the first time it was so blatant and clearly intentional.

Once you notice what you said above 👆 just message one of us and we’ll be there. Or try to get there ASAP. Screenshots and video recordings work great too if you’re able to do so.

The Training Server is a training server as the name implicates. We’d like this to be an environment where folks can learn the ropes so that they can become better pilots and move onto the Expert Server where they can enjoy a realistic experience. Folks who troll have no interest in learning to become better. They troll to get the attention and to cause mayhem for you (the controller) and other pilots. We don’t want that to be the case. We want you to have an enjoyable and pleasurable experience while you are controlling or flying. 🙂


Got it. Thank you sir!
