I was going to reply to your other post about banning the Japanese insignia, etc. I know you were joking and they closed the thread. However they pretty much did that in the BF 1942 game with the Rising Sun flag. They opted for the national flag instead. Just like they made a fake German flag without the swastika they didn't use the "Rising Sun" flag in the Battlefield 1942 for similar reasons.

I found it silly because the difference between the Swastika and the Rising Sun flag is Japan still uses that flag today on it's ships and other military installations.

Games are like movies in my opinion. You never see anyone get upset at a movie maker for leaving in true historical things like the swastika on flags, etc.

I dunno. I think those planes are very ill and should go to doctor and let him examine 'em.

I hope they will recover succesfully http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Stars and bars? The Confederate States of America?! Or is there another flag that is referred to as "stars and bars"? True, the British flag has stars and bars, but I'd always heard it referred to as "the Union Jack" and not "the Stars and Bars."

The "Stars and Bars" is the insignia used on American planes. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

I hope no one finds it offensive.

Never heard that term before. You learn something every day I guess. I've been spending the past month doing schoolwork related to the American civil war, so "stars and bars" was hardwired into my mind as "CSA." Didn't think about the USAAF insignia.

Oh grow up already. You're pouting and sulking like a little kid. It's not very becoming.

Mitlov, look in the mirror - you are instigating this rubbish and I know when your posts are reviewed we will be rid of them and you for awhile... Siberia is cold - but you will have some company I think.
I saw this thread as a lighthearted attempt to cool things down - you seem to have had a different - more negative view, no?

Instigator? How many threads related to the controversy have I started? ZERO. The main thread in question was about five pages long when I joined it. I haven't instigated anything.

It is refreshing though. I haven't had anyone call for my banning since I started a thread on why I thought the Dora was easy to fly. Despite my "horrible crime" then, I didn't get banned. I trust the mod's judgment in this situation as well. We'll see what they do.

it was still a conversation on page 5 or whatever, as you can see. I think your intentions are obvious.

What? I simply hope people don't find it offensive. What's the harm there? You never know what people will find offensive. People find so many things offensive nowadays, you know. One must really watch what they say.
