What you chaps are saying is how I think.
This is racing cars. It is supposed to be fun, and on this site, informative.
The site should welcome new people that are interested in the technical side. I am one of those people who is just a super fan of the sport, and other than some sim racing, is no closer than anyone else. There are some drivers and teams I prefer to others, but not at the expense of enjoying the sport as a whole.
However, I do find the technical discussions fascinating to read. A few times a year I pick up a copy of Racecar Engineering or Race Tech from Chapters, and read them cover to cover. Why? So I can engage in topics with others. You don't have to be a number cruncher to understand what is going on at a very deep level compared to average fan.
I appreciate all the people here that understand that as moderators, we have to deal with everyone, but the non technical repeat offenders often leave me with a short fuse.
Dave_Killens has left, don't know if it will be permanent. Ciro has hung his hat as well. He's been around the block, is a marshall, loves racing, and is gone. MX_Tifosi is on a summer break right now, so its basically myself and Tomba.
Thanks to those who appreciate this role is difficult and getting done solely for the good of the board. To give you an idea, here is a PM that one of our users got from another. Names have been withheld to protect the chromosomally challenged. People like this actually exist.
