A in depth grievance against MSFLIGHTS Team speak and their shady abusive practices. The Article 

By Erwin Stevens 

This is an inside report within the TS community known as MSFLIGHTS.NET.
Hopefully with this article, it will also serve as a warning for new 
members to not attempt connection, or affiliate with the site known as 


This site is not exactly 100 % user friendly of all ages as they claim
to be, and is subjecting its members to inhuman/questionable 
conditions. It is clearly NOT for under-aged minors! 

Their first problem is the power struggles between Administrators. There
is no chain of command or structure to get anything done. Everyone 
wants to run the place as they see fit, being a dictator on how they 
want to run the site rather than uphold the posted rules they have and 
claim to uphold. It is non existent. 

Don't count on getting assistance from any of the
Operators/Administrators on the site. You will be banned for stupid, 
idiotic reasons at best, for no reason and without any warning. When 
they do act, guidelines are not being upheld for the good of the site, 
and its members. It is only upheld for personal gain of the in 
particular Administrator/Operator of the site at that given time. 

The TS owners of the site sadly have lost control as the final say if
how to run their site and the members are suffering because of the 
constant policy changes, excessive force, emotional abuse, and slander 
inflicted upon the users from the staff, owners/SA picked to run the 

If given an opportunity to make suggestions, (which is encouraged),
warning now, they do not allow Free Speech (Amendment 1 of the 
Constitution) to tell them what you really think, even when asked. You 
will be punished severely for speaking out negatively or if you do not 
agree with staff on any issue or for any idea that is not worth using. 
*Also including censorship on their forums for the same reasons. 

(#2) DO NOT, under any circumstances, abuse people who are on TS). This
a rule posted 

They have been known to mistreat users, and not give them respect that
they deserve, inflicting emotional distress by the disrespectful, 
slanderous treatment toward their members. Mostly it is behind the back 
of members to others... or after the member is banned. They have been 
known to be drunk while an admin on the site, and bring personal issues 
into their abuse toward users as well. If you don't want your good name 
and reputation besmirched by MS flights or be on the receiving end of 
discrimination, or abuse, I recommend going someplace else. 

They also claimed to be strongly against pirating and hacking in their
rules, but in their own right have been soliciting illegal software 
that violates the licensing agreement of FSX (Dovetail) and P3d 
(Lockheed-Martin) and possibly Microsoft Corporation. The software 
makes it able to multi-play between the two software pieces when it is 
not designed to do so in the first place. It is a violation of the 
Licensing agreement of the manufacturers, only accepted when paying the 
manufacturers a “licensing fee” for use of the third party software 
with their programs. I have on good authority they have not been paying 
such licensing fee. 

*(Sources are posted questions to both manufacturers on their forums
about legality of SIMLINK and its USAGE.) 

Simlink, as a software in its own right is ingenious, but it is software
that cannot be trusted. It hangs, crashes, and messes up your flight 
simulator on multiple occasions. It has caused multiple crashes and 
corruption in both flight simulations which can only be fixed by 
reinstalling the Flight Simulation Software... Anyone who attempts to 
inform the staff, are banned/kicked from the server. 

Again a warning that you use SIMLINK, you do so on your own risk and is
recommended you do not despite false promises and endorsement of the 
admins of MSFLIGHTS.NET. It just does not work properly! 

In the long run this site is a worthless endeavor and if you want to
stay on the good side of the internet, I wouldn't endorse this site as 
worth going to as a community. I wouldn't expose kids to this site, and 
the treatment they subject their members to in the first place. They 
are a very piss-poor community with no leadership and unfriendly 
environment toward other people. 

In basic terms it's a Lemon and best to stay clear of it and trouble
that brews ahead for their actions.
