As well, when a username is changed to 'Fixeravic' it will now be a warning or infraction every time.
I guess you mean 'a player's name' -- not a 'username'
So now we can't even make jokes? what about "cheatdal" then? Maybe the cheating refers to doping (rather than time violation/coaching/fake MTO)! What if I say I saw Ferrer take a sip of juice between sets? Maybe "juice" is code for something else!
you're going to read users' minds now, too?
Silly nicknames are not 'allegations' -- they just reveal that poster's bias against the player. they say more about the person who posted it than the player they're talking about.
(btw, I don't tend to use those words so it doesn't matter to me just sayin'...)

And besides, I know certain players dope. But I'm not allowed to even hint it?
crap like this is exactly why forums have these rules. You "know" but cannot/refuse to offer proof.
If people just phrased their comments as "It's my opinion that player X is doping because he runs for hours and never looks tired." we wouldn't have these problems. Anyone who understands the English language correctly knows that the above sentence doesn't "allege" anything. Libel is not about what you think, it's about what you say and how you say it.
