I have arrived a bit late for the discussion about improving the forum, as I tend to overlook non F1 threads (a habit I am working to eradicate)

But my own 2 pence worth on that topic. Wrong facts, childish opinions etc are all a fabric of the net. However its normal to challenge anything wrong, as we would in real life, in real life generally we are striving towards truth, enlightment and fullfillment - these require the collaboration of others

Now if a few members here have no such instinct to move towards better understanding or enlightenment etc then its not a deal breaker, as long as they are big enough to accept getting corrected, just as we correct people in real life who act in ways that prevents others evolving and growing etc.

If people would just understand the the forum is for discussions and opinions based on something - in this case F1 reality, events and factual info, then it would work better if, when corrected they simply accept it and not take it as a personal affront that has to be avenged, with F1 taking a back seat to the various methods for doing this. Surely these people are not here to get their egos massaged or to find soul mates or to 'get on'

The trouble always follows the same pattern, someone is corrected, or someones opinion is corrected (in keeping with evolutionary interests of elevating the human spirit and main purpose and function), that person has spent ages drumming up the courage to actually externalise an opinion (highly commendable, no matter what the opinion is) and that person is reluctant to update it. So they turn to the fallacies, wrongly confusing winning an argument to delivering a thesis that is useful to others IN THE FUTURE.

And then they harbour a grudge and start to forget about F1 in a desperate attempt to 'win' some imaginary rematch with someone who has long forgotten the correction that alas was all important to others. And ofcourse the fact that they needed to be corrected in the first place will almost always go hand in had with an inability to 'win' any imaginary 'rematch' and so fallacies replace any meaningful debate. And when the correcter is too polite to ignore even those rabid with incoherence - again because of the evolutionary instinct to help everyone evolve - we have a one sided schooling usually concluded with 'appeal to authorities' or 'poor me' or the 'flouncing off into the sunset, to return when all is forgotten'

Best thing would be for all members to respect the right of all others to post whatever half baked opinion they are able to articulate, and then to respect the rights of all others to object, correct or pooh pooh that opinion. at that point social and peer group systems should kick in and conclude the episode. To then feel the need to object, correct or pooh pooh the opinion (wrongly or randomly) of others AS PART OF THE FALLACY of ego centered yet logic bypassing and emotionally unrestrained 'payback' that will always fail
Now in some business areas this pattern is a time honoured mechanism for converting financial losses from the shallow into financial profits for the pragmatic and objective. And very soon I will be in a position to offer everyone on here who got to this part of the post, an exceptional training product for free for anyone who gets what Im saying, watch the websites section

But hey, it takes all kinds to make a world :thumbup:
