    I just passed my written exam. Got the results and all is good.
    Today I get the email below. I spoke to the FSDO and they had no idea what this means.

    I am on the phone w/ the testing center now and they said there is an investigation underway into potential cheating.

    What in the actual hell????

    They gave me 2 pencils, 2 pieces of paper and a test supplement.
    Also I had an old metal style school E6B.

    Hmmm, that's not good. They monitor you during the test, mine was monitored with video cameras.

    Ugh. Could it be someone who was on the receiving end of some humor decided to make an anonymous report? Did others know you were taking the test that day?

    I will be very interested to hear what comes of this.

    Do they record the video monitoring? Get a copy quick. Good thing you’re well-known at the FSDO.....

    Is it possible the center itself is under investigation? Could be that everyone’s exams are held up.

    They’ve watched your videos and realized that you couldn’t possibly know anything about instrument flying. :)

    You weren’t planning to register for a new exam anyway, were you? Sounds like you’ve already passed the IR written.

    No, I know what it was!

    The video of the test area showed smoke filling the room from an unknown source. that was interpreted as a way to cheat by obscuring the cameras.

    UGH!!!!! EXACT SAME SCENARIO AS LAST TIME!!!!!!
    3 hours before my exam I posted a joke on facebook, someone screenshot it and once again...

    It was a good joke too. Fortunately, I posted it 3 hours before I took the test so the time stamps should save me.

    Before you say, I have this coming. I know it and I am not going to stop.

    Ummm, that was just asking for it. With friends like that who needs enemies?

    Edit, actually, you tagged the place you took the test? They probably reported it, probably required.

    When you pretend to do something bad that others actually do ... and expect no repercussions, you think better of the world than I do.

    Read the joke and thought it sounded legit. Maybe needed some emoticojons to signify joking sarcasm.

    You still have the test completion form in hand, right?

    Who cares if your "account has been put on a registration hold?"

    We won't tell and the FSDO doesn't care....

    It's pretty clear there's people with a vendetta against this guy. They probably lurk here too given they know this kind of spineless rattery gained traction with the Dr. No's at the FSDO the last time around.

    Humor is under siege in the age of social media. Dude, keep pumping out that content; plenty of us out there who don't take ourselves that seriously and appreciate your style of humor.

    Well, at least you'll soon be on a first name basis with your new friends in Irving.
    "Here comes Frequent FSDO Flyer Bryan again!"
    Maybe they will break out of their mold, start to understand you.
    Good luck, Bryan. I'll vouch for you. (wait. hold that thought.)

    We should do a poll, who ratted out Bryan, I'd take the school.

    Is it a good thing that Bryan and the ASI's of the NTx FSDO are on a first name basis and potentially god parents to each other's offspring?

    Pretty soon they’re gonna start requiring cavity searches prior to taking written tests...

    Besides...does anybody actually fail written tests?

    Considering that he tagged them in the post, and their livelihood depends on people not cheating, I'd say the school as well, and I hardly blame them.

    Save everyone some trouble next time, and just tag the local FSDO. Geez.

    I was gonna question how this could have happened so quickly, but, YOU TAGGED THE SCHOOL WHERE YOU TOOK THE TEST?!?!??!!? That can’t be true. I know Bryan is a smartish dude but that’s a whole new level of YHGTBSM.

    I see a whole new series opportunity...F@#KING WITH THE FSDO... highlighting the absurdity of lack of common sense.

    You really can't make this crap up.

    Looking forward to the recap video!

    I'm sorry - but if I was at FSDO, you'd really need to explain this to me, and further explain why we should not invalidate your exam.

    I'm sure you're doubly glad I'm not.

    I get you have a sense of humor, I do, too. But I think I have the gift of being a bit more selective than you are.

    Good luck. Just for reference, what's your neck size?

    For the same reason that all of us that post in the Chem Trail Spraying thread should not be investigated...common sense.

    Maybe I'm a little confused - did the testing center accuse you of cheating before or after you posted online that you were cheating?
    I'm not entirely sure I believe it actually happened but if it did I hope this didn't f*** up anyone else's tests.

    Nauga,
    to a point

    This is pathetic, is there any common sense left in this country?
    Sure seems like someone is out to get you.
    Best of luck!
