Social media: think twice
Thank goodness the sport’s governing body, the Motor Sports Association, is acting in a positive way regarding the negativity and sometimes nastiness that one often sees on motorsport social media sites and forums.
The majority of individuals who post these offensive and ignorant comments about drivers and race day affairs do not know the drivers personally and have never sat in a race car in their lives, yet think they are expert enough to pass judgement. How easy does it all look from your armchair?
The danger being once it’s posted, it is out there for all to see and cannot be taken back.
I hope the MSA does take seriously cases of verbal abuse on social media, and more people take the view ‘if you haven’t got anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all’. Judith Jordan (Andrew Jordan’s mum) Lichfield
