But I was trying to do some research on airplanes for a possible purchase and ended up on several airplane forums ….
I mean one might expect some level of disagreement, but the thing is, there is a minimum level of intelligence required to be a pilot, right?
The same infighting, the same unreasonable defense of one brand over another, the same unreasoning hatred of the “other” brand… the same illogic, the same defense of what that person had purchased…
I mean, you can substitute 1911 for Cessna and Piper for GLOCK and see nearly identical arguments (and then sub Mooney for FN to get the REAL argument started)
And the rumors and untruths repeated by people that have never experienced that product, But they know it is true because they heard it from a friend of a friend of a cousin of the brother of the guy who shares the next hangar over….
I guess, no matter what the forum topic, people are people.
And topic discussion fora are really not reliable sources of data. The same level of noise to signal exist there as well.
