I guess he was asking for it Evita. See his above post. Still doesn't make it less sad.

Re: Rafachat - Vol. 80: It's comeback time baby!!! :rocker2:

I may possibly have the best brother in the world.

Not only has he renovated my house for free (well, I do give him gifts but he wants nothing in return because he "likes to do these things, it's his hobby")
but he does all sorts of things for me.
Tomorrow, he's going to take my car and make it look brand new again (my car is 6 years old).

And ode to my big brother.

--
Andreea, as sad as I am about Mikey's permaban, you can not blame the moderators. Mikey knew that it was coming and he went over the edge anyway. I have no idea what he said to get the final push but it's not as if this is a massive shock. The man has been banned a LOT. If you keep him on MTF because he's liked by many, it's not fair to others who got permabanned much quicker.
--> You can argue that Mikey's a friendly and much like guy on MTF. He may troll here and there and sometimes go to far with it, but the vast majority on MTF know that he's a friendly guy.
If you allow some people to troll and others not based on personal preferences, you might as well have no rules at all.

It's probably the rules that are the problem, not the moderation.

To be honest I'm shocked it took nearly a decade for Mikey to be permabanned.

Show he is not really a bad guy. And he knew his tennis with his elephant's memory helluva lot better than me with my grandma's fading memory.
I sort of agree with Hilde that rules are rules, but if even the persons themselves didn't report his posts the mods COULD have gone easier on him, I know wishful thinking. Not every crime gets punished in real life too.

Great brother you have, Hilde!

Re: Rafachat - Vol. 80: It's comeback time baby!!! :rocker2:

yeah, the rules...

After the Saulo fiasco, I lost my trust in them and their rules completely....

the problem I have is with permabans unless is really homophobic, racist, threatening attitude.

We don't need that in a tennis forum. But the trolling should get temporary bans, 6 months max and that's it.

I'm also against banning for personal attack unless the person who was attacked reports it.

I've received several warnings with such claims, be careful, in Russia you can't touch Putin, here you can't touch the moderation.

Re: Rafachat - Vol. 80: It's comeback time baby!!! :rocker2:

For example, in the "Happy bday, Fedal" thread it was a link to a 9 years old thread. I didn't bother to read it and I posted in it. I ended bumping it even if it was not my intention at all
Now it's closed. Why? Is not like it was disruptive or something
It wasn't my intention to bump it, I did it by mistake but why closing it?

Should've deleted your post when you noticed right away.

Agreed, and agreed.

the thing is that a lot depends on your subjective view of that poster.
If it concerns a poster many on MTF like, the reply to a ban will be one of "just an innocent joke, if yet not very tasteful but he didn't mean it that way, unban him".
Why should one poster get away with something because you like him when somebody else gets a ban for the same without protest.

I remember one of Mikey's bans for making xenophobic remarks against Spain/Spaniards. I also remember us giving him a bollocking over that because it may have been a joke to some but he was already walking on thin ice.
