You have to remember that there are times when people may not be online for a few hours. For example, even though I'm a moderator, I need to take time off and I was out washing the cars for a couple of hours and then I read the paper. So I didn't actually switch my phone on until after lunch.Fantastic news that Virgin is once again expanding at Manchester.
However, it’s funny how today’s news reinforces my posting the other week.
This good news was posted at 11:04. There are 2 likes on that post, and 2 subsequent posts. That’s it.
Not one single comment, not one single like from the usual suspects. *THIS * is exactly what I was talking about. When the MAN news is bad, its busier than ever, people literally cannot post and comment fast enough, but when the news is good, people suddenly loose the ability to type? yet everyone was in denial saying this forum is completely balanced and impartial. If that was genuinely true, then where is everyone?
Anyway, logging off, probably for the last time, given I’ll probably be banned for speaking my mind. Truth hurts some I suppose.
Jamman - A lot of wishful thinking on Twitter so you are not missing much !Great news for virgin, hoping we can still have a future as a Virgin/Delta mini hub.
RE reading things on here vs twitter, I feel I need a good deal of eye bleach whenever I read any of the social sites.
I don't post much as I feel I don't have much to give to you guys, I certainly don't have any insights on new routes or insider scoops, but I logon daily and subscribe to show my appreciation.
I've never joined any social media group so the only things I see on Twitter are those copied to F4A. Twitter, as I understand it and not just with aviation, is limited to very few characters per post which means that information will often be sketchy and not always complete - a bit like the Ceefax on the BBC (or Red Button as they now call it which I thought was going to be axed many months ago).There appears to be more news these days via Twitter than the good old web !
I myself would rather read stuff on here than on Twitter !
