I've trimmed the thread, as it contained a strange reference to C2/C3, which is not related to this thread (as much as one or two may want to believe it is).

Discuss facts, not wild unsupported assumptions.

The "anomaly" had no bearing whatsoever on the success of the mission.
Do you want SpaceX to tell you about every small bug that hit the windshield on the way up? That's how relevant was this "anomaly"

It did not cause any problems to the 100% success of the mission, it didn't cause any consternation to the flight controllers, it was not an O ring type of failure that could escalate into something more serious.

Space flight admittedly is unforgiving, but if you want conspiracies, go investigate Buzz Aldrin's new girlfriend, much juicier story there.
