OKC doesn't play by real world rules. It's OKC rules and OKC rules only. I remember a guy in my class that constantly liked to talk about how ZNY does it such and such way. I remember our instructor eventually told him, "Well, this is the Aero Center way and if you don't learn the Aero Center way then there won't be a ZNY later on." He learned that lesson the hard way.
So I've heard this said by a couple people now, and it kinda baffles me. Can you give any examples of the kinds of things that you wouldn't be able to do at OKC that you could at a facility?

Getting written up for an A1 because you cleared a guy off the ground to 4,000 but some plane, 30 minutes away, 200 miles away, 5 sectors over is at 4,000.

Yah this don’t even think about climbing that blue angel above some flight south of MCB that you have a strip on.

Getting an A1 because you released control of an aircraft to an adjacent sector.... but didn’t reference the MOA that is located in their airspace only..

That’s kind of like a sup failing someone on a skill check because another controller initiated a point out and they didn’t reference that controllers traffic back to them, 60 miles away
