To find out where the problem lies and then fix it?

1. We can't fix anything. We are a group of people talking to each other with little to no influence over anything.

2. The conversation began to sound more like finger pointing than anything constructive, which was my point.

I didn't suggest "we" fix it, rather the problem be fixed by the park or whomever, meaning if it was an employee who wasn't paying attention, retrain them, etc.

Yes but one place that we play a role for better or for. Fair or not is public perception. Often times these forums come up in Google searches on parks so we do play an information role and it is important to reinforce that the ride wasn't to blame because that story will be out there even though it appears to not be the case and somebody might make a decision not to go to the park or ride that coaster based on that mistaken belief.

I agree. And Zachary's initial post did exactly that. Then the conversation seemed to devolve into finger-pointing and a useless game of "who can we blame next?"

For clarity, I regularly use rhetorical questions to moderate the Forum. I understand what was being said, and why. But I felt that the discussion was going in a useless and somewhat distasteful direction, so I asked a general question for which I neither needed or wanted an answer.
