You're not Boeing to believe this, but... Another deadly 737 Max control bug found

and modern planes are very,very safe. The fact we are talking about the 737 max is that it is such an outlier. If this happened in the 60's and 70's it would of been lost in the noise

Indeed. Something like 99.99% of all 737 Max flights ever flown were completed safely. Commercial aviation is so safe overall that 99.99% successful flight completion isn't good enough, and the correct course of action was taken in grounding the planes so that the unacceptable .01% accident rate can be fixed.
