    I think it is funny when airplane people complain about helicopter noise, then get up in arms when residents complain about airport noise.

    These are the two big ones for me.

    But I'd push back on eliminating the non-aviation vendors. How else am I gonna get 5 minutes in a massage chair or an extended foot massage if we disallow...

    Absolutely true. I've never seen a political discussion on the internet finish in a civil place. Those discussions simply don't belong on an aviation board, because they will not advance aviation,...

    I think the intent was to "send a message to politicians".
