As a result of disputes that have erupted off the forum between forum members, which involve copyright issues and allegedly libelous comments made on the forum, the maker of the RNZAF Skyhawk film "Supersonic Life" has requested that all posts containing discussion of the film be removed, and no future discussion of the film take place on the forum.
I have complied with this willingly.
DO NOT MENTION THIS FILM OR ITS MAKERS ON THE FORUM AGAIN PLEASE OR YOUR POSTS WILL BE REMOVED
This has caused me a lot of grief trying to sort out other people's problems, and this is an end to it.

I have removed two posts that were made in reply to my initial post because I consider they were in breach of my request that no further dicussion be made on this topic.
I will not reconsider my decision. The film maker did not bully me into this decision, it is one I had pretty much already made before his request came through, as virtually every post that has been made about this film on this forum has resulted in parties arguing and causing trouble. It usually happens off the forum and usually I'm somehow dragged in as mediator in the centre trying to sort things out. I receive numerous PM's and emails every time this film is mentioned. I have had it up to here, and therefore agree with the film maker that no further discussion of the film should take place.
I think the major issue here is a lot of people who may know a lot about the aviation world simply know nothing about the film making world. Comments made on this forum about the film and the company have done nothing but harm the film. Network executives use Google, you know. And I am sick to death of trying to sort the issue out. Some members forget how much their comments hurt or harm others sometimes, whether it is libel or not, and I am the one who gets it in the neck.
SO, THIS IS AN END TO THE DISCUSSION OF THIS FILM ON THIS FORUM. If you have a problem with my decision on this matter, please PM me, don't post it here.
I regret that it has come to this, but there we are, it has. Thank you.
