Anti German Culture on F1 technical

Post by Arterius » Sat Sep 26, 2015 7:35 pm

This has been something that has gone on for too long and with which I have had a problem for a long time. The constant bashing, bad mouthing, and insulting of German drivers like Schumacher, Vettel, and Rosberg goes unpunished on this site. You can go all day long and nothing happens to you. Try and defend those drivers and you get ridiculed and banned. This might be an English speaking forum but that does not condone this anti German behaviour.
This is supposed to a forum about the technical nature of F1 and the nationality of a driver or team should not come into it. If you can not do that please GTFO this forum.

As you probably have noticed a lot more drivers (and teams) get bashed on this forum. F1Technical isn't solely against Germans, but against a large variety of nationalities all across the globe. I'm certain we can all bash South African drivers as well!

The way South Africans drive (on ordinary roads) deserves some bashing.

And before I get bashed, I am South African.

As stated above F1T is very equal opportunity in our bias. I for one, get extremely tired of the Hamilton circle jerk around here, but I don't think I'm anti-British, as at the moment I'm a full fledged McLaren fan (I was for the first half of '07, too), and even though Im a hardcore Fred fan, I quite fancy ol' Bada$$ Button. Unfortunately though,Toyota is the only German team I've had the pleasure of cheering for.

I guess it's the lens you look through.

Yeah we're all stupid, fat, and completely ignorant of f1. Come to think of it, I hate us too.

Wow i wasn't aware there were so many 'muricans.

Someone saying that Rosberg's pole lap yesterday was bad isn't exactly bashing.
It just wasn't all that good, simple as that.

I thought we all hate Alonso :wtf:

Joking aside, to the OP - I think you may have got things a bit wrong. I can see you have joined 5 years ago, still, you may not have had the time to visit that often. We have had waves of people coming in and out, but we hated every driver equally :)

And now, seriously: hate is a strong word. This forum has always tried to keep an atmosphere of civility and decorum. There is no anti-German influence - they are all great drivers.

No? Being anti-anti-German doesn't insinuate anti-British?
