I may not have the all encompassing understanding of F1 like Cookin, but I have been watching for more than 20 years and consider myself reasonably knowledgeable, so imagine how the less knowledgeable feel? why would you express an opinion only to be insulted and attacked for that opinion, I honestly believe that is what was happening on this forum!

I have to agree with you, both!! When I first came here, I tried (possibly too hard) to fit in.
I found article after article about Ferrari, to share my love of my team; but, a lot of those
were met with derision.

Having only been around F1 for less than 10 years, I know there is a lot that I have to learn
and I'm open to hearing what others know and have to share. I even went so far as to ask a
"Dumb Question of the Day" in the hopes of showing I had no problem admitting that I had
much to learn. But, that also fell flat, as evidenced by the condescending manner in which
many of those questions were responded to and the ridicule that followed me after that!!

CookinFlat6 knows a lot about F1, no doubt about it and I'm sure I could have learnt a lot
from him; but, I have to admit that once he got started on insulting, denigrating, vilifying
anything and everything Ferrari, I exercised my right to stop reading.

Wow this thread was a difficult read, I've missed the whole affair it seems. :scratchchin:

Without taking sides (I've yet to understand the ins and outs of these incidents) I hope the issue is resolved soon, and that the forum can progress and grow as we enter a new season. This will be my fifth season as a member of Forumula1 and I plan on posting throughout.

One just hopes that active membership doesn't become a prevailing issue here. I want to wish all members here (whether recently banned or not) my best wishes, I enjoy being part of this community with you all, and arguments are just part and parcel of debating the sport we love. Sorry I haven't been posting much lately, sorry also for reviving this thread, but I'll be raring to go when the season gets under way.

Much love,
Lew x

What a mess. I basically stopped posting here regularly in the first place because this place has too many politics running through it and it doesn't really seem like anything has changed in what is nearly 2 years now. Shame.

Scotty! Long time no see! What brings you back?
I echo your views that what has happened on the forum is a real, real shame.

Hey RC, hope you are well. I stop by every few months i guess, very busy IRL and with other projects myself really - just a fluke here that i stop in when everything has kicked off!

I think this forum needs an anchorman style face off!
