Hi everyone 👋
A bit of a moan, and something that’s been annoying me for a while.
As you might well know the world has had some pretty controversial topics in lately, and some stuff that’s been very close to people’s hearts and it’s all a very sensitive topic.
I’ve been doing a lot of flying around over the past week, and I have to say I was disgusted at some of the names that people have. These are the un-monitored “Pilot names”. Some of the names that people were putting in were hurtful, rude, offensive and racist. I’m not going to start naming and shaming or putting what they were on here - but it’s just not okay! You’ve got to stop doing this kinda stuff!! One of the things that disturbed me most was that these kind of names were the names of pilots flying on the expert server, (of all places) the place where everyone is; ‘professional’ and holds the ‘ethos and values‘ that all pilots should have.
I appreciate that it’s not everyone, and it’s only a very, very small minority of people doing it, but it’s those few people who make these sort of selfish actions which leads to others feeling unwelcome and disrespected, and at the end of the day we’re all one big community with a common passion for flying, and making everyone feel welcome!
So, we just need to stop doing this! It’s not funny, it’s not a joke, and we need to sort it out!!
