    So make all the false, malicious reports you want?

    Nah, I just don't think the school was being malicious, (petty maybe) and the report (if limited to "this is what was posted") was not false. I think malice requires more than we see here.

    Here's the problem I'm having with this. I didn't see you say anything about an apology until well into this thread. I also see you sticking to your guns about continuing to do this. To me, that means your apology is empty. You have avoided saying you wouldn't do it again, and you've made it clear you would. So how exactly are you sorry? It's more of a "I'm sorry . . . . that you have no sense of humor". That's not an apology.

    I suspect this is all part of the joke. But I'm finding the taste to continue to sour the more I read.

    I still find it ironic that Bryan's actions potentially caused this test center to be investigated by the FAA, which is what he complained about in the first place.

    So a knowingly false report of FAR violation for “punishment” isn’t malicious. Gotcha.

    with friends like you, one wouldn’t need any enemies, would one?

    Honestly I'd be kind of surprised if they didn't report it. Flight schools operate on thin margins. Being certified as a test location is another revenue stream for them. I would suspect the terms of their test center certification dictate they do exactly what they did whenever they discover evidence of potential cheating. Calling the customer and asking them to take the post down or investigating it themselves is not an option for them if they want to keep their certification. You can't really blame them for not wanting to lose that revenue stream over your facebook post.

    Has anyone noted that the timestamp is 8:30 am and the testing center doesn't even open until 9?

    The facility is not under any investigation. He is.

    Well ... there was that one anonymous report to PSI corporate about a dodgy camera setup at one of heir facilities from “Biggis Dickis” from a Voip phone call that traces back to a server in Poland...

    He says he’s seen much nicer facilities that were properly maintained. Thick accent.

    Biggis likes “see something unverifiable online, say something”. He also likes Mel Brooks movies.

    But i wouldn’t know anything about that. Haha.

    Off go go post “Marked Safe from a moron at American Flyers” on Biggis’ brand new FB timeline now. LOL. He likes Facebook.

    Biggis also posted on their comments he heard all of their proctors let everybody cheat. They’ll be turning in all of their test takers now, I’m sure.

    Of course now we see if the camera footage goes mysteriously missing, which would trigger the FSDO butt they’re attempting to lick, to take a giant well-deserved dump on them.

    * No I didn’t do the above. No you wouldn’t be able to trace or prove it if I did. Just an example for the morons in the crowd who don’t understand how the internet works yet. Maybe idiots don’t belong in charge of social media.

    Biggis says hi.

    IMHO, it was a CYA move on the part of American Flyers. People with no sense of humor could look at that post and report AF to the FAA.

    That's why sometimes when I'm with a group of people affiliated with an organization and we do something, um, fun, we remind each other, "no social media".

    Don't worry, these fun things don't have anything to do with aviation...

    An investigator should note that. And see if it's immune from tampering, and/or timezone differences.

    Yes. To validate tamper-proofness, that investigator will need to gain access to Facebook's code and database stored procs. He may also want to sniff around their version control system or code deployment systems to make sure this rogue didn't code the change for this single instance and then code it back to how it was.

    The perfect crime. It's like he stole the 1.6% extra on his IR written score ocean's 11 style and just walked off into the sunset. Ha Ha! FAA Rubes!

    I didn't look at the original FB posting, did some llama actually give the answer in the comments? I think 'giving a cheater the answer' is way worse than 'a would-be cheater asking for the answer'

    Sure they can. This isn’t a criminal action. By definition, all actions involving the FAA are guilty until proven innocent. Check history.

    We’re missing the obvious here. @SixPapaCharlie likes FSDO. He misses them. He wants another date but doesn’t want to appear ‘forward’ and call them. He wants them to call him

    Ok. But let's make it more like the incident in question.

    Say you're in flight ops and just finished reviewing the paperwork and are just hanging out. You decide to post on Facebook, "Cockpit setup complete... just finished my pre-flight beer... ready to take off to Detroit," and you tag the airline you work for in the post. What do you think will happen?

    After you go online claiming you are actively cheating on a test and cause an investigation, the FAA should suspend your medical on the grounds of cognitive issues.

    Yeah, good luck with that. A private entity found something that could deemed as suspicious and put the account on hold pending investigation per their policy. Per their policy any upcoming appointments were cancelled. Expect the customer in question did not have any up coming appointments and therefore suffered no loss other than having to talk to the FSDO again due ultimately to his own actions. If you can find a lawyer who even give you the time of day on a case like this I'll eat a bug.

    FYI... It's very easy to change the date and time of the post in FB.

    It's also easy to manipulate the original posting time as well(with time-zones)

    Well interesting. Why the eff do they allow that?

    Now I’m off to go have Biggis’ friend “S***posting Bob” who has a much older account and a German IP address... post some complaints about the testing facility a couple months ago. That ought to be confusing to investigators.

    Maybe confusing enough to tell utter morons to bot take ANY action on ANYTHING posted on a g-d social media website.

    LOL!
