Nick, from that throw away comment it may appear that you don't take this whole forum stuff quite as serious as you should.

One therefore has to I assume you have a life?!

It depends. It can sometimes be humorous and fun if the meaning is changed. For instance I once, in my haste, typed "yolk" instead of "yoke".

Someone remarked that I looked like I had egg on my face...


Mea culpa and all that.

I once mentioned runway 30—15 at Perth.

Kept them happy for a page :D

For example, in New York City, there is a field in Corona Park, Queens, that the city’s parks department has specifically set aside for legally flying model aircraft and drones. But it falls within the FAA’s rule of not flying within five miles of an airport. When we tested DJI’s newest Phantom 4 drone in the field, the control software kept telling us that we were too close to an airport and had to land our drone when we flew more than about 100 ft in the air

Personally I like being corrected if I'm wrong. It means I've learned something.

I sometimes wonder if people who feel they have to make snidey comments on the possible reactions of a complete stranger on the internet to an invented scenario, might have something better to do

and yes I do realise I've just done it myself, one good turn deserves...etc
