Turning to name calling by the mods clearly shows the mods need to reevaluate how they govern the threads. Oh wait you said “being” so again not a direct statement. Does it matter? Get to the point.
The mods have had every opportunity to show they’re not bias toward protecting Red Bull and only one cleared it up.
All of the Red Bull bashing posts have been deleted so it’s not so much these actions but the cover up and the constant dodging of the initial post.
Yes I am bias toward the underdog in any situation but since the initial poster doesn’t have direct evidence because the mods deleted it and people with authority who cannot give clear responses.
I think other posters can shutdown any hating or crossfire, I think eventually things will level out. Mods should give it a chance.
Look - I want to enjoy this platform and not have to mess about in he said, she said.
You have asked, and didn't let it go, about moderator bias. I asked you directly - what is your bias. You have said, if I understand that right, "the underdog* in any situation" ?
I'm going to hope that you recognise the out of order posting and bickering and, without causing it yourself, to help turn the heat down in threads where you feel the "underdog" is being maligned?

I appreciate the effort the mods put in. Sometimes I think in trying to be impartial as possible it causes tempers to heat up a little.
Thanks, and you're probably right...but if I could express withour profanity or expletive just how I cannot care for bias questions - having none and not feeling the need to justify that - then I might find my levels of being irked much reduced

Well, just yesterday I saw a warning/pm that another user got, and because he posted in a thread where users don't like him, the moderator referred to it as "enemy territory". To me that says even if the moderators aren't bias, at least some are indirectly encouraging a tribal mentality!
This is not the moderator's issue is it? Trying to take the pokes and barbs out of conversations to prevent yet more piling on is what happens. A thread is "enemy territory" only if your previous actions have given thoe inghabitants reason to think you are only there to harangue or insult...and the flip side is that people need thicker skin of course!
If this were a real place and someone from Team A was maligning Team B face to face and it was designed to elicit a reaction or to bait them - what would happen? A pint would be spilled and tempers frayed.
it is only racing cars that most of the people on the planet think we are weird for being so obsessed with them! Be nice to one another!
We're getting there - this is a team place - we would all be gutted if it was not here. How hard can it be to think before posting something you* know is going to get someone else to respond negatively?
*not you, you - but "one" as the language ought to be...
