The last couple of months the quality of this forum is taking a nosedive. And it's not because of the mods not trying, it's an uphill battle to say the least with the level of venom on display on this forum.
I think the mods should seriously start considering handing out temporary bans to people who are unable to keep it on topic, or feel the need to provoke others.
Just for the record, the mods ARE busy doing exactly that. We try not to be too draconian, but it is happening, unfortunately more and more. I blame twitter and reddit training, I guess?
I was the only one to state the obvious in absurdly clear terms. Most mods did it indirectly and the whole team, intentionally, strives hard for zero team bias.yamahasho wrote: ↑Sun Nov 20, 2022 10:16 pmIn case you missed it, the mods were called out for being Red Bull bias, admin Hollus was the only one that cleared things up.
The other mods have put fuel on the fire by deleting many one sided posts, they are equally to blame, they simply delete and don’t warn with the poster to edit or fix the post. This has polarized the forum. I think things can be better but mods should take some responsibility.
Discussion deteriorated into a direct violation of forum rules:yamahasho wrote: ↑Mon Nov 21, 2022 12:55 amIt’s the mods, they just locked Chris90’s thread based on what what, this post
“Agree. Drivers should act professionally and keep their personal political beliefs and activism to their unpaid time.
I want to see them perform and talk about what they do best in the world and not learn about which sexual orientations they support or how they disagree with x country's energy politcs.”
This and other posts broke no forum rules. I saw nothing wrong with any of the posts, mods are overly aggressive and should step back and let other members shutdown off thread messages.
It appears mods are trying to be big brother.
To maintain focus on motorsport, discussions on politics, race or religion are highly discouraged, and subject to removal.
