Is there a new rule in MTF that posters are not aware of?
There is. Have a look here
Thank you for the suggestion.
We do agree that this can be a problem, but until there are examples brought forward, there will not be much change.
One change we will be making is users will be warned or infracted (forum disruptions) for the use of improper names in the title. By not putting the proper names, it is difficult to find the correct match thread and impossible to search for a thread after the match has finished.
A second change that will be made is nicknames for players that involve 'fixing' or 'doping' allegations will now be infractions. (ie Fixeravic)
But I agree that some users still use those disrespectful nicknames like "Fakervic" or "Fiasco". I think there only consequent reporting helps.
