I apologize to those who saw the earlier message. As soon as I found out about it, I had it removed. I have not been checking the forum lately and several of our engineers have been posting under this name. The idea was that it would be a group effort where any engineer who happened to be online would answer questions, but it looks like we can't keep it under control.
The original thought was to answer some of your technical questions rather than keep you in the dark, not to be a sounding board for your complaints. These guys aren't the operators, aren't even supervisors or policy makers, and this is not a place for an official 40/29 response. In fact, our general manager advised against participating in the forum because he thought it would be a negative - no win situation. He was pretty much correct.
I don't know who made the original post, but everyone has been told that I was not happy about it. Their argument was that the comment was not an official station positing, but their own. I told them that if they want to fight in a public forum, they could get their own account.
I will evaluate if participating in this forum is even worth the effort. Right now I am leaning towards abandoning it, like the other stations in the area have. One thing for sure, we will no longer respond to any postings except for technical questions.
This IS an official 40/29 posting.
