Debasing others....?
Pffft. That's been you since your very first thread...
...what happened to that again? Oh that's right, it got closed down and so did so many others that you originated because you try (...and fail miserably...) to get clever with people.

1000+ posts of sheer uselessness later and you still haven't learned.

Great effort.

I suggest you look again at your own post #28 before complaining about dismissive responses. In all your time on this forum you have never provided “anything that’s better”, have you? That leaves you ill-placed to be lecturing others.

Since your contributions to this forum so far amount to precisely zero, you are in no position to criticise the researchers on whose work you remain content to feed. Learn some manners before you even think of posting again.

Re: Top Jet Aces

Researchers on whose work I feed are great characters like the mentioned Hugh Morgan, John Weal and Petr Kacha. Also Johannes Mathews, Andrew Thomas and Many Souffan.
I never gained anything that was of interest for me from you or the other Nick.

The smarter you try to be, the funnier you end up being.

Have a look at the acknowledgements section of Petr Kacha's outdated, frozen-in-time page. I made quite a few contributions to it back before Petr stopped updating it so long ago. I'm also the first to tell you that it is way out of date.

1. Welter 27(63)
2. Eder 24(78)
3. Schall 17(137)
4. Bär 16(221)
5. Rademacher 16(97)
6. Rudorffer 12(224)
7. Buchner 12(58)
8. Schnörrer 11(46)
9. Stehle 11(26)
10. Weber 10(13)

...that's not even valid any more. Happy suspension, Knusel.
