Allright, I must be missing something here....

The world-leader in the fractional business announces massive layoffs, and the furlough thread gets closed?

What's up?

We discuss this stuff all the time.

Now, I fully support the mods being able to sensor, since we're not a democracy here on FI, but geez, a little explanation would be nice!

Its pretty sad move on the part of the moderator..... I dont think they ever closed a thread on the furlough of Citation Shares, Flexjet or Flight Options.

At least we know where the MOD is employed now it seems....

No, I don't believe they did. Nor did anyone flame guys who posted internal publications related to the furlough before it was made public. The internal communication made it fact, and posting it quelled the rumors, I don't see a problem with it. What I do see a problem with is the fact that commenting on bad news at NJA is evidently against the TOS, even though most only wished them well after the rumor was confirmed. The mods offered no such protection for the other fracs. What a load of crap. This mod should be relieved from duty, he/she obviously can not remain objective and unbiassed in his/her censorship.

I'm not a moderator nor do I know any of them, but this was clearly shut down due to personal attacks between two posters. I don't believe this had anything to do with the subject matter of the thread. There was a direct reference to an individual's past that crossed the line.

Mods: Keep an eye on the Regionals thread. The NJA furlough thread is starting to pick up some momentum.

"next person who posts any info on the subject will be banned for a period of at least 7 days.

Thread now closed... go do something else with your free time, like be with your wife and kids."



This was from the Mod. seems to me he/she closed it because of the subject, that is what he/she says.

Thread was closed because of statements unrelated to the thread topic that were between 2 posters and a legal issue.

Sure has heck is! Talking about a closed thread, but NOT discussing EXACTLY why the thread was closed, and NOT mentioned the forbidden-fruit felony topic...this is great stuff....

I bet Westwind is having a great time...


Hey, is this a 'non-denial-denail'

Quick, someone call Wood-Stein

A rep alluding to the fact that you are wasting your time while frequenting their product is downright lunacy! To condescend and insult their clients is something all together worse!

Glass, the thread being closed had nothing to do with NJA.

Apparently, posting FACT and PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE isnt' allowed on FI.com

What's the best way to tell the MODS to go pound sand without getting all *******************?

Um, yeah. It was closed for the discussion about "climbing a rope"...as I said in the above post. Did you read it? I thought it was obvious. Guess not.
