I no I felt like doing that in my 1st race but I managed to contain myself!!
Yeah this is true. My point is: The 107% rule is the easiest thing to implement, and just let the server admin to decide to apply it or not. I believe a very large portion of sim drivers want to do serious pickup races but not the league thing. For the public servers, we need to find a way to seperate those wreckers/newbies out from the serious drivers. People always claim, this is unfair to newbies and make them out of the races. That doesn't make sense to me, since the server admin has the right to only allow some serious races there, newbies can always go to other servers with looser rule. Many serious guys just have that much of time and want to have some serious races, they have no responsibility to help training the newbies, it is unfair if their races are disturbed by newbies/wreckers.
I have spent lots of time on public servers, at the peak time with a full grid of 25 drivers, the usual scenario is that the top 10 are within 2-3 secs. I think it is reasonable to eliminate the bottom 5-10 drivers, hopefully at least half of the intentional wreckers are contained in this group. For those newbies not fast enough, this encourage them to put more effort in doing clean laps. If this alone can discourage a newbie from the game, I would say this guy won't stay long in serious sims anyway.
One more thing come up my mind: Many wreckers have an excuse "I am using keyboard/gamepad, can't control, sorry!". So just like the forced cockpit view option, why not have a forced steering wheel option for server?
