As a relative latecomer to the group, I'm behind the curve on what his basic
argument is.

It's something to do with the relative risks of GA flying isn't it? He
claims that it's actually higher than is admitted or something like that?

TIA.

"Skylune" - a self admitted troll and very likely another pilot - likes to
have fun with us by playing devil's advocate and pressing hot buttons.
There are those who haven't figured this out, or are pretty thin skinned or
close minded, and get all in a huff or plonk him.

Many things he says have a point if you allow them to.

His "basic argument" is simply that he is looking for whatever criticism of
GA he can come up with. It's bad enough that he doesn't have his facts
straight, but for him to think that this newsgroup of all places is the
appropriate forum for his venting is offensive. Almost as offensive are all
of the folks willing to continue to engage this troll.

That said, if you want to know his thoughts, I'd recommend private email to
him, rather than starting a new thread on the subject. The only person who
can offer an accurate answer to your question (assuming one exists) is the
'loon himself.

Can't help but hypothesize that he's refusing to take the meds. Sad
case, really. Wonder if he is indeed a pilot (doesn't seem to quite
know the jargon but certainly tries hard) and whether he is able to
pass a physical? One speculates that he might be one of those poor
folks who so desperately wants to fly and either can't pass the medical
exam or just plain couldn't hack it in the airplane and thus
compensates by attacking those who can do what he can only contemplate
from afar. You see it from time to time and all you can feel is pity.
Often the type is observed at public hearings where they whine and
complain about the noise of a local airport, seeking to close it so as
to try and get rid of the reminder of their own impotence.

Go deep into the thread entitled, "Bullying....as preacaution," to find
his beef.

DING DING DING! You win the prize. He started training, and coould not
imagine how anyone could be competent at flying one of those things.

If you read through his threads you'll find that he never completed
his pilot training but is considering picking it up again. Seems that
he has some noise issues with an airport that is close to some land he
owns.

Wrong, wrong, and wrong. Absolutely ludicrous.

Your inability to say what you are responding to is what's truly ludicrous.

As is your apparent inability to figure it out, especially on a thread
with only a few posts.
