I don't know why it is needful to spell this out, but if an aircraft is lost to accident, be it in the Z/I or in a theater of war, while on a non-combat mission, then by definition it is a non-combat accident and would not and should not be included in an accounting of "German-Allied loss ratios in aerial combat".

So nice to see when someone can follow the breadcrumbs, but no, I don't worry about other posters misusing sources, I worry about them misusing my work that I derived from those sources, especially the data tables I used to freely share. Given I freely shared sources with this particular poster in the past, their whining is an interesting commentary on their motivation and attitude in posting. If I don't see a request for sources from this poster any more, it may have something to do with the fact that their previous conduct and lack of interest in their postings caused me to put them on ignore, so that I infrequently, like this morning, bother to review their posts.
