I like to know who jacksmith60187, Recruit, Posts: 14, Unit: IL-999,  is as he/she is not a member of IL-999

....Now THERE'S a shock. Gotta love 'pretend world'.

I was going to post the "You Got Served" or It's On!, but really, not cool.

If you want to hide/not show your unit, fine. But don't put in a fake/incorrect one.

Of course, given that all 14 (to date) posts are in this topic, I'm willing to bet any "cross posting" was done by someone more present there than here. :)

OK, OK, try not to get severe abdominal cramps over this. I changed it. It was just a placeholder. Sheesh.

It's only accessible if you are a member.

I'm confused then. I logged off of both the forum and AOPA when I tested the link, but maybe there was a cookie stored anyway.

Must be, I can't get on, and don't feel like making yet another login. :)

When I tried it again just now it did ask me to log in. I probably got my browsers mixed up. I've been logging in here with Firefox, and when I logged out before, I was probably using Internet Explorer. Sorry for the confusion.

Apparently the thread that people are complaining about being public is less public than this one. ;)

You don't need to create another login with AOPA, if you have a membership # already, that's the login.

It's public to a potential pool of members.

True, but Jeders is apparently correct that you have to be a member to read it.

More "dirty laundry"?

Here's the opening post, for those who aren't AOPA members:

Actual quote from the safety officer at the morning safety briefing at a recent SAREX:

"Anybody can say, 'knock it off' if they see a problem - but there *better* be a problem."

So are we going to just drill every other forum now for more non issues? That won't help anyone.

For the record  I agree with that Safety Officer allegedly quoted, as would most other members.

Me too. I've had my fair share of whiners throwing down a flag just because they don't like their assignment, the mission, etc., that they were well briefed on prior to departure, and had every opportunity to not go. I can certainly see the angle of attack on that statement, from both viewpoints.

If you're concerned that I might be "drilling" for stuff like this, the answer is no. It's just something I ran across that seems relevant to the issues raised here.

I think discussing issues can help people.

A2capt mentioned people just not liking their assignment, so I can see that there is a legitimate concern that the "knock it off" option not be taken lightly. At the same time, safety is often a judgement call, leading to differences of opinion. Maybe the "knock it off" option needs to be supplemented by an option to say "I have safety concerns about this" for situations that aren't clear cut.

That seems like what the quote says...

I read it as: Don't cry wolf.
