The Whinge Pit

The Whinge Pit
This used to be the area for motorsports discussion, but recently all that has gone on in here lately has been people whinging, so it has been renamed appropriately


Ain't that the truth!! Where I come from supporters, support through thick and thin without whining their tits off about it (with apologies to those members who have... u know). Furthermore supporters don't knock those who are trying their absolute best to provide them with the victory they desire. But then that is the joy of being an armchair expert - you don't have to put your balls or reputation on the line.

All true Russell, but I am sure it was you that mentioned something about the constitution in Australia and free speech.

Unless I am wrong and I am happy to be corrected it isn't the place of a BB to govern the content of speech unless it goes against the forum rules. While constant bitching or moaning might be unpalatable to the majority lets be realistic about this for a moment.

Motorsport is a very passionate past time and in times like this people are going to want to vent anger and frustraion. Whinging about whinging is what?

By definition discussion is just that. You take the good and the bad and in times like this the bad is going to out weigh the good.
Have your say and maintain the standard, dont exaggerate and certainly don't claim the sport to be something it isn't unless you can prove it. In other words the rigged and cheating claims don't work unless they can be substanciated with fact

Agreed Ian but some of the posts in the Whinge Pit have gone very close to crossing the line when they question the efforts of and make unsubstantiated and/or insulting statements about, individuals who may not be in a position to respond.

I'll be the last onhe to intefere with freedom of speech but there is a line somewhere in the sand that we are getting very close to crossing IMO.

But, at the end of the day, it ain't my call.

I have only once had a go at Ford. Thius was out of sheer frustration and a spur of the moment thing. of course I could have edited afterwards, but I didn't feel I should. And of course I didn't maintain that train of thought, as I said it was a spur of the moment thing.

Sure this is the whinge pit, but using a name such as this is like intcing poeple to whinge. If you have a problem about something this is the official place to do so, and therefore I see the credibility of this area to go as low as the name.

I suggest it should be changed back to the pits, but I'll leave that up to the moderators to decide.
