In the latest issue of AutoSimSport, I read with some dismay, an article which in part discusses the return of RSC. In that article, there was also mention of RaceDepartment which contained misinformation, or at the very least, omissions of fact that implied we offered virtually nothing in comparison to the amount of donations we ask for and receive each month to cover our expenses. There was no mention of the three dedicated servers we provide to offer free quality racing venues for our members, nor the the additional server to run our forum and related databases. Also not mentioned was the annual expense for related software that run our forum and front page. Of course there is in addition the countless hours donated by a fairly large and completely unpaid staff to administer the forum, front page, and racing event organization. Why were these issues omitted? Because simply stated, we were not contacted to determine the facts. Normally, responsible journalists check the facts before they write an article. This is also disturbing because RaceDepartment has supported AutoSimSport with an announcement in our forums and on our front page whenever a new issue is released. Also, it seems that routine attacks on RSC has moved off the OpEd pages into the hands of a particular writer, who has chosen to attack RSC with regularity. Apparently, it now appears that others in their writing stable have chosen to do the same with RaceDepartment, at least one time thus far. At the risk of sounding naive, I'm hoping that the normal response from the management of AutoSimSport will not be the usual ire, ranting, and threat of legal action. I could be wrong, but so be it. I'm not the least concerned about it as the facts of the matter are clear, in writing, and in the public domain. We in fact have a letter from the writer in response to our concerns that actually prove he is unaware of what he wrote or the damage he potentially inflicted on RaceDepartment's reputation in the community. What I am hoping is that they will do the right thing and correct these issues in the next OpEd, or at the least have the writer of this article take the necessary steps in the next issue to update his next article in the next issue to reflect the actual facts. In the interest of full disclosure, my past associations in this community include a position with RSC as an Admin and close to a year with AutoSimSport where I was responsible for the monthly production of each issue. This open letter in no way is reflective of these past associations. As an Admin here, these opinions are my own and in no way reflects the opinions of others unless they so otherwise state. To the RaceDepartment Community: This is not intended to start any flame wars so please don't. Constructive comments only will be allowed. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.
