Default Give Credit Where CREDIT is Due.

Never thought I would be writing this however here it is.

Just today I received the October, 2010 issue of AMA's Model Aviation magazine. This is as well as I can remember the BEST and MOST INFORMATIVE issue of any magazine that I can remember ever seeing. It is great, especially considering that AMA needs to cover news, events, AMA stuff, and so many disciplines and individual interests.

In my opinion, the AMA workers did a darn good job on this issue. So regardless of the other things such as a subsidized competition against the free market magazines that I find very distasteful, this issue of MA could well stand alone in there with the free markets. So much in so little space, all interesting and very informative on a number of subjects. Great Job on this one, MA Staff.

Keep it up!

Now if they can do that consistently and get it on the retail shelves it would help the AMA with PR as well as financially.

paying for arf catalogs dont make one informed of whats going on in muncie,
as much as buying CarCraft dont tell you whats going on inside AAA

Where in the commercial magazines did they print about the Conflict Of Interest that did occur?
Nope,
you want to get the real news, you go to RCU and learn about a conflict that
a) did infact exist
b) was identified and handled within the policies for CoI
per DM

Buying Backyard Flyer aint gonna teach us that,
nor Flying Models
nor Model Aviation

And we come to RCU and RCG because there is no bias or hearsay, just "facts" because posters post only "facts"..........

So far, I have really enjoyed reading the Muncie Mag

I am still a little troubled that it cost me 50$ a year for the mag minus 8$ for insurance.

Guys don't start a poster/Luchnia bash raid here, I am just kidding about it

Luchnia ,

Please don't ever let ANYTHING I or others post here upset you, it's not worth it. I'm glad you like reading the AMA mag. I read mine cover to cover. If it involves modeling, there is something that can be learned. May I suggest to those of you who do get the AMA mag, when you are done reading it do as I do......Instead of throwing it in the trash, take it to your doctors office, school library, or any other office where there is a waiting room and leave it. Some of my clubs guys bring them to the clubhouse to give to visitors. Someone will read it and maybe, just maybe the hobby AND the AMA might get a new interested person......Just a thought.

tinner, thanks for the advice.

I have been on forums since the old days when bulletin boards were on txt files and floppy disks and believe me, not one thing that is posted on a forum will remove any sleep from me [X(]

I said "dont make one informed",
I didnt say ~dont give any info.

Since you bring up my previous post,
whynot answer the simple question in it-
Where in the commercial magazines did they print about the Conflict Of Interest that did occur?
Dont worry bout limiting yourself to the Broad Retail commercial magazines,
the limited retail Model Aviation magazine is included for you to find the answer

Keep in mind,
some countrys publish propaganda,
which may indeed be some accurate factual info from inside that country,
but it doesnt really 'make one informed' about that country.

...

please scroll up to where I said
Regarding the content of the magazine:
Meh, ok I guess. I dont buy modeling magazines.
So I defer to the evaluations of guys that do
Why is it that when I say I am going to sit this discussion out,
you guys keep trying to drag me back in

Because not all things that posters here bring up as "facts" are "facts".

you want to get the real news, you go to RCU and learn about a conflict that..
It's a sad state of affairs if the only source of "factual information" is reading RCU. Kinda like listening to FOX news. No bias, just "facts"?!!

again, I said I dont buy modeling magazines,
I never said RCU is my only source of info.

When you stop adding to what I say,
you will stop having things to disagree with me on.

Oh, btw,
quotations from Prez DM, CFO, or DVPs, on RCU should not be slighted with sarcastic referrals
If you dont like us quoting DM,
get DM to stop talking.


Yes, I did notice you still havent answered the simple question.
Now stop dragging me in, or answer the question.

When you quit adding to what you say, your position could be understood. Show us where you have quoted "Prez DM, CFO, or DVPs" in this discussion for Tinner to "take lightly."

First let me set the record straight, as apposed as to what YOU want to imply. I respect DM and his opinion, but I go to Him DIRECTLY for answers. I don't listen to posts "about" him. I call on the phone, you know "personally"......

KidEpoxy
Meh, ok I guess. I dont buy modeling magazines.
First you admit you don't buy modeling magazines, so it is safe to say since you don't buy them you also don't have them to read. Yet you say......

KidEpoxy
Yes, I did notice you still havent answered the simple question.

THAT being

Where in the commercial magazines did they print about the Conflict Of Interest that did occur?
Now you're getting like a certain other poster who ALWAYS wants others to show proof, but won't provide it when HE is asked to. If you don't buy and therefore read model magazines, how can you be so sure that they haven't discussed AMA's conflict of interest? Is this another "fact" we're supposed to believe just because you and a certain other poster say we have to?! I say PROVE that no other commercial magazine said anything about the AMA and a conflict of interest. You can't prove YOUR comment so why should I justify your question with an answer?.........And as to stop dragging you into these discussions, "NO ONE is dragging you in". You are entering into them of your own free will, so don't blame me for your weaknesses. If it isn't important to you to have "the last word" then don't respond. Simple.....very simple. Quit blaming others for what you think. OH wait, that's your whole point.......

Now you are just out there.
I ask a question, and you demand I give proof... OF WHAT?
It was a question, not a statement.


If you want to know what DM says,
you can read DMs [link=http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/fb.asp?m=2061256]posts[/link] to RCU like this one.
If you dont have faith in DM accurately saying what DM says,
ok, thats your problem not mine

oh, btw, yes, I did notice you still havent answered the question.


Please stop bothering me in this thread I am trying to sit out

Please stop bothering me in this thread I am trying to sit out
I asked the same thing of the dbcisco on my thread "Why does the AMA have to grow" and a lot of posters jumped all over me for thinking I "owned RCU". I don't and YOU DON"T. DON"T blame ME for YOUR problem ignoring me. I am NOT at your side forcing you to respond! You are free to not respond unless, as I said earlier, it is important for you to have the last word. It's YOUR choice to respond or not, quit blaming others for your lack of self control......There is a block button, so why not use it?

As to me not answering your question....Until you read and can prove your point that NO commercial magazine reported anything about the AMAs conflict of interest, I have nothing I need to prove. YOU through out that all incompassing statement that in reality everyone knows you can't back up. It would be impossible for you, me or ANYONE to say for sure no magazine reported AMAs conflict of interest. Cheers...........
