But I think that even your revised statement may be inaccurate. Like much speculation and chat room gossip, you are a victim of sampling bias. It is likely that there were some who spoke less critically of the captain, but it was less "newsworthy" so their statements did not go viral like the critical statements.

It's easy to sit at your computer with 20/20 hindsight and say the captain made the wrong decision. Since there were fatalities, it is clear that it was a bad decision. It goes without saying, which is why it is not necessary to repeat it and repeat it and repeat it...
Good for you Rick. Good observations But you won't reach everyone

You mean you dont think if the repeat it and repeat it you can turn opinions into facts and browbeat others into submission
