I think we're pretty lenient, and most all the members here (even the ones I disagree with) are civilized in their discussion. There's races in which I do not comment on, or don't wish to be swept into the discussion, but the post-race after-talk is rather common. There's a lot of F1 boards out there, and the discussion is typically much more infantile and uneducated than you'll find here. We have a nice mix here: fans of the drivers, fans of the teams, fans of the sport, and well...people who like all of it. Personally, I don't care much (if at all) for the individual non-racing issues of the drivers, no more than I care about the off-camera doings of politicians or really anyone else. But when it's easy to chalk up the drivers as having "no personality", something absurd and wonderful comes out of the trivial and silly. I don't use it to judge the driver, but to smash the idea that they're some sort of hollow automaton.
