Note to Ares Readers


Dear Readers,

Due to repeated violations, a flagrant disregard for meeting our ethical requirements to participate, and his ongoing refusal to adhere to numerous requests and warnings otherwise, I have banned JackJack from participating on Ares and Any effort by him to return under a different alias will be dealt with similarly. JackJack is declared persona non grata.

No voice is favored and all arguments are welcome, including criticism of Aviation Week. What is not allowed, however, are personal attacks.
