The egotistic nature of some !


Yet again RCG shows it 'colours' ......

Unfortunately due to RCG being one of the largest membership forums online - it of course has all range of people. Over last week or so - that has become so evident in the reaction of a couple in particular.
Basically over 2 years - they have been allowed to develop into self appointed experts, posting what in reality is rubbish. When someone comes along and challenges in full and fair manner - they get all upset and resort to attacking and finally when they realise they are on very poor ground - close the thread !!

Unbelievable - completely against the whole idea of forums - place where discussion and ideas are to be put ... where differences of findings / ideas / solutions can all be looked at and debated.

Seems these people are not interested in any form of debate - only Medals and Patting each other on the back - regardless of whether right or wrong.

RCG has a reputation out there of being a tough arena and not so kind to all ... many I know have left RCG for this reason - chosen smaller more friendly forums where discussion is so well conducted - it makes RCG look like a Gladiatorial arena.

I will not name the people or thread involved - but they know full well who they are and I hope they feel satisfied in showing just how petty and childish they can be.

Wow, you have a lot of posts.
I learned to stay out of the forums pretty quickly and just go my own way. I found as a newbie, I was always having to suck up to others just to even get them to respond and you had to bow down to the experts or you were just ostracized or ignored. I just enjoy perusing the blogs now for several years and that has been ok. Good luck however it turns out.

Vast majority are good and want to help - trouble is the few who consider themselves above all else can spoil it.

Know what you mean ,
I am happy to help out whenever i can and DO so , sometimes by doing that I get flak from others who think they know better, if they do then great I m happy to learn.
Sometimes these people can come across as a bit too aggressive though and because of that I've stopped on a few forums....
I must say the rcgroups forums do seem to have quietened down a lot and Facebook groups get more popular ...
I like both but Facebook does seem to relaxed and friendly...

Don't know what the answer is apart from just ignore those people who act in this way..

Oh my... Nigel you should know by now that I am right and you are wrong.

Sorry.. couldn't help it. (That's what RCG does to me)

Hope you are keeping well mate.

I liked your Reeds video. Hope you can get some of them cleaning it. I will be interested to see how they do it.

It looks like a very handy machine, especially in your case.

I have thought about strapping a gasoline powered strimmer to side of the boat and doing it that way

But its a big job and better I think to get a company to do it properly first.

C'mon this cannot be possible!?

You mean the constant posting of pictures and videos when they have little if any relevance to the topic at hand, or the ridiculing of planes and power systems some deem to be inferior is surely not counter-productive and does more than to serve ones own narcissistic and egotistical desires...right?

Please excuse me while I go fetch a persimmon.

I wondered who he was referring to. That is exactly the sort of thing this post is all about.
