I believe that people in a forum should be able to speak about what the mods should do. This is what differentiates F1Tech from other forums where admins think they know it all.
believe that a moderator is mooore than able to distinguish the tone of a thread and lock it when he is too tired or too wise and he knows what's going to happen. My advice: let Tomba be, he's an extraordinary mod.
Finally, I also think that being afraid of a different point of view in a thread is what make conflictive threads. Manchild has a right to write what he wants. Tomba has a right to lock what he wants. That's it, Manchild.
As for F1 collaborating with diminishing poverty, I think the best they do are not concerts, but the initiative to diminish road accidents.
I took this figures from the World Health Organization, for 2002. I summed all the deaths in all the countries of the world. This is what I got:
I also belive, very strongly, that another way to avoid poverty is through sustainable mobility
. The global warming issue is a shame to the transportation community.
In India the accident rate is excessive, as in most asian countries. F1 does an effective work in that respect. Let me assure you, dear Manchild, that working against accidents is the more effective way of FIA helping India. Heck, actually it is a good idea, I think. What about pilots giving away ad time to the national accident office?
