Prevention discussion

I am wondering if it is possible to really discuss helicopter medevac accidents and prevention on an internet platform.  Given the number of helicopter accidents people may be afraid of open discussion.  Still there is a wealth of knowledge and experience that might collectively have a positive impact and help address a knotty problem.  The Flight For Life helicopter accident in Frisco, Colorado in July is being looked at as a preventable accident.  The helicopter rotor blades are sited as being unstable.  Had there been discussion of this as a potential hazard and actual investigation into the actual performance of the rotor blades, the problem could have been addressed.  This particular accident cost the pilot his life and left others seriously injured.  By the time NTSB shows up to investigate a tragedy has already occurred.  Tell me what you think.
