  1. Well, it would land me absolutely zero. It would be nice to put a couple of bucks in my pocket for all the aggravation though, however. For the person or company being defamed, that is a different story. They have more lawyer power than I do. And at the end of the day, is it really all worth the aggravation and a couple of bucks? Just follow the rules and be respectful.
  2. The Vertical forums are meant to provide for open discussion and dialogue. However, recently certain individuals' posts have sunk to all-time lows. This includes the impersonation of other individuals and fraud. In one case an individual went so far as to post a fake job listing for a company, and impersonate the individual that works at this company. This is libellous and will not be tolerated. We continue to investigate these posts. The individual(s) WILL BE identified and their names and contact details provided to company lawyers for further action. The Vertical Forums used to
  3. A fundraising campaign, organized by the Moosonee paramedics, is being undertaken to help raise money to support the families of those that died in the Ornge helicopter crash. Monies raised, through the sale of Ornge t-shirts and sweater, are going towards the families of: Captain Don Filliter First Officer Jacques Dupuy Primary Flight Paramedic Dustin Dagenais Primary Flight Paramedic Chris Snowball The money raised will be split evenly between the four families of those that were killed. Please help support the families by visiting http://teespring.com/7793
  4. You're right, it is laughable on many levels. Last year I dealt with lawyers on three occasions due to the forums where I had to identify people due to misinformation that was being posted. As I said, the original post, in my opinion, was a simple question. But that question is up to interpretation by the company involved. And let's all be honest, the thread would have gone down hill quickly. I'm sure you would all agree that it is rare for us to pull down entire threads. And we can all agree that it's laughable for us to do it in this case. But at the end of the day it is me t
  5. Sorry for the late response to the posts. I am away on March Break. It is infortunate that many feel that this is about advertising dollars. Couldn't be further from the truth. The post that was made is up to interpretation. How I interpreted it is not the same way that the operator in question interpreted it, nor many of the people on this forum. So, do I want to fight this out with a lawyer after I have been threatened with one? No. What I am trying to do is protect EVERYONE from having to deal with this because I tell you what, if a lawyer is coming after me, he's coming af
  6. I just removed a post in regards to the closing down of an operator. This is false! Unless you know for certain that a company has closed its doors, do not make any posts of any kind about the company. This is misleading information, and goes against our forum rules of conduct. Should the said operator want the identity of the person spreading the misinformation, we will be obliged to provide it to them. So, it is in everyone's best interest to refrain from spreading misinformation here on the forums. Please feel free to contact me directly should anyone require further information reg
  7. As many of you know, we have been dealing with website issues for the past several weeks. Much of this has to do with malicious attacks that were being made on the site. In an effort to mitigate further attacks in the future the website will be offline, starting at approximately 1AM (eastern) for several hours as we move to a new server. This not only means better security features, but also a site that will be much faster. We expect that if all goes well, we should be live within a few hours. I appreciate everyone's patience as we continue to work at resolving issues with the websi
  8. After a very long delay, I am happy to announce that our forums are FINALLY back in operation. As some of you are aware, the Vertical website was compromised about a month ago. After weeks of investigating, we discovered several vulnerabilities in the software that was being used for the forums. It was those vulnerabilities that allowed hackers to infiltrate the Vertical site. But it wasn't just Vertical they hit. Hackers managed to infiltrate thousands of websites around the world using the same software. Not only have we changed the software that we are using for the forums, we h
  9. As some of you may already now, the Vertical website was compromised a few weeks back. We have been working as quickly as possible to get the site back 100 percent to what it was prior to being compromised. This is taking a bit longer than we thought. We are about 95 percent completed, but it is that 5 percent that is proving to be a bit difficult, which includes the forums. We hope to have this rectified as soon as possible. In the coming week or so, we will be shutting down the website for maintenance for approximately six hours. Included with this maintenance work will be new secur
  10. A few Heli-Expos ago, I met a wonderful father and daughter who have their own helicopter operation. Sadly, we lost their info. Does anyone know of the helicopter company that I'm speaking about? I believe they were in Nortern BC. Thanks for your help! Mike
  11. When you register just to discredit a company, I have a problem with that. If you wish to discredit National Helicopters, then use your real name or your original pseudonym . I suggest that "Flameout" reads the rules of conduct again. Once you write something as fact, you can be held accountable by the company if they allegations are proven to be false. Earlier this year we were required to provide the identity of a few members that crossed the line. I'm trying to avoid the same thing from happening to "Flameout". Mike
  12. Please keep the thread on topic, and the insults down or it will be deleted! Mike
  13. In the next issue of Vertical, we are running a story on the fires that have been going on in Canada and the US. This means we are on the hunt for pictures of helicopters in action over the fires, pictures of AMEs working on the machines, machines sitting at the base camps - anything that would show the level of helicopter activity on the fires. Some of you have the best pictures out there, from the field and as it's happening. If anyone is interested in contributing images of helicopters working on the fires, please email them to me directly at mike@verticalmag.com Thanks. Mike
