Thanks Joe. Your vision for USHGRS and for hang gliding in general is an enduring inspiration.

At this early stage of the implementation, I can think of several ways people can help ...

From September 13, 2018, three years ago today:

JoeF (with my own highlighting) wrote:Well, just after MGF posted in Jack's place, sg banned me permanently. Thus, I was minutes away from answering MGF's hits; he too did not see what the facts were, but just hit. sg went way off topic and then baited me and bullied me and then cowed to some complaints as well as his own complaints. He wanted to rehash the morality of Bob in the middle of the topic on USHGRS; he also wanted to force a discussion about the HGAA voting thing. It all became hot water that sg introduced and allowed; then he banned the topic starter who was just politely staying on topic. Such conduct by sg portends an endgame for open discussion on core hanggliding matters in his forum; it is my hope that enough of his members will see through the sg game of banning and call for an end to such conduct. Oh well, onward without the sg platform for discussing things HG.
MGF unfairly characterized several people in a post just before my being banned from sg's forum. But he also declared summarily how the MGF org can stamp out pilot's way; such an org should have no station as regards public land use.

I am sure that many of them do see through the "sg game of banning", but they put their own desire to post about their own self interests ahead of their duty to help maintain a fair hang gliding community. That will eventually spell the end of that community, and it already is. The departure of WillsWing has been another indirect consequence of the actions by Jack, Davis, and USHPA.

That remains one of my all-time favorite quotes on this forum. Thanks Rick.    :salute:
