The RB16B topic should be that, purely about the car. Wing is part of the car but we A have a separate topic to discuss wing flex (and it is not exclusive to only Red Bull, let alone the 16B) and B, we had absolutely idiotic comments like “the revenge of Mercedes is best served cold”. While I applaud people for their sympathetic posts in other teams thread, what the actual f. does that have to do with the RB16B technically. Nothing. So I don’t understand why probably these same people are getting upset that it is shut down. I do actually, and I think those kind of commenters should rethink their presence on this board. I for one am glad mods removed that post and shut it down.
Viable commenters should not feel offended.
Plus, pretty quickly when talking about aero effect it is going to be a broader discussion than purely the effect it has on specifically the RB16B so a general topic seems much better suited. Keep car threads about the car.
Firstly, you need to consider the fact you are on a public forum.
You're expecting to achieve completely perfect topics where posts are all about very specific things and this is an unrealistic expectation. Virtually every single topic on this forum has posts, paragraphs or sentences that going by your strict criteria would fail or potentially offend you.
This is a forum to talk about a sport, with a specific emphasis on technical aspects. Sport is involved so fans with subjective opinions or loyalties are an unavoidable consequence I'm afraid!!
There are other sides to this too:
- If you censor posts to the extreme and keep deleting things people get bored and leave. That reduces the community, fun and individual inputs.
- If I want to talk about anything related to the Redbull car, I'd go to the Redbull car topic. Why would I think to, or want to split off into multiple other topics when it's about that car?
- To stress again... this is a public forum about a SPORT where anybody in the world can join in. Don't get carried away thinking it's an invite-only engineering forum or something.
