Does it seem like the GA pilots are -- like...really, really bad pilots?  I see some airplanes apparently destined for a small airport flying around and around that airport and then off in all directions before returning to finally land (at least, I think they landed.  Maybe they finally just ran out of fuel and crashed.  Hard to tell.)

This is particularly annoying when they disappear and reappear on the scope.

They disappear and re-appear because they dip below radar coverage (which is quite realistic). They are bad pilots though. They will transit the ABQ and TYS class c without even a radio call. And then when you give them vectors to avoid it, they won't follow them or they follow temporarily.
