Return the roasting threads from OT to GM

If people want a place to have a laugh over a rival player/fanbase losing then having the roasting threads back in GM would help prevent clogging up result threads with the same old drivel. It gives the tards four or five places to write dross without it entering into serious discussion threads. The Thread Where We Laugh When Nole Loses, GOAT cheese, piggy roasting thread and the Murray loses thread should return to GM IMO. Up to you guys though.

Re: Return the roasting threads from OT to GM

I can see reasons to keep them in OT or bring them to GM. At GM, they might take roasting off from other threads than if they are hidden at OT. But having that kind of threads may also increase roasting in other GM threads. That's why I'd keep them in OT. But all roasting should happen there, not at GM.

Re: Return the roasting threads from OT to GM

They should be closed. Why to bash players and other users ? I belive this is not the purpose of MTF.

Re: Return the roasting threads from OT to GM

Thank you for the suggestion.

We have decided that putting them back in GM won't reduce the player bashing in GM, it will actually increase it. Bad behavior only leads to more retaliatory bad behavior, not less.
