Cage you are indeed a paradox, you are not one who seems to allow for nanny state type thinking, yet you are chastising CC? Personality clash?

You're reading a bit too much into it.
Chastising not.
The ongoing desire for emotional (and puerile) rants from offshore, the various moderations, and shameless self-promotion really just come across as daft and at times, slightly unhinged.
Without trying to go down the rabbit hole, I think it is safe to say that not everyone shed a tear.
There is a long, colourful history, that with the inability to just let it go, creates a feeling among some that thank goodness it is now someone else's problem.
It was not my desire to be personal or to detract from the positives that many others are grateful for.

I am sure there are those that happily jump on the anti-regulator bandwagon irrespective of the cause, the rest of us need to live with the consequences.
Perhaps these are all qualities that are admired and encouraged in the southern states.

Ah, fair enough, don't know the man, but have heard he is an excellent bush flying instructor. I tend to side with the rebellious against authority for its sake, particularly incompetent unevenly applied authority.

I still prefer people who speak their mind regardless of whether I agree with them, and I suspect senor CC is much the same as us in that regard.

Indeed, though it is far more interesting when people apply their mind before simply emptying the contents.
Different people thrive in different environments, so good luck to him. Put the past behind and make a success of the future.

If someone has moved on then it is unnecessary to come pee in our little aviation pool for just for giggles.

This I agree with 100%... what was the point of the original post from CC other than "bragging rights" or rubbing the SA Aviation community noses in it :!: :?:

Its pretty childish...
