I guess this is the confusion for some controllers. They will assume an
aircraft online is there to get ATC and if a pilot says he is only online to
see other traffic it must be puzzling to them.

You can legally fly from Lands End to John O'Groats if you remain outside
controlled airspace and you need talk to no-one. Remember (frightening
but true) over 50% of British registered aircraft have no radio
installed!

However, aren't we members of online flying communities because we WANT
to talk to someone? Otherwise you might as well pull the plug out of the
teephone socket and fly whereever the whim takes you! Heathrow in a
microlight - here I come! :-))
