being permabanned from a forum sounds like way too much and, yes, have to agree with Lenders a bit in the sense that I am, too, against it in a way. I guess it would be an 'ok' measure in extreme cases, and then again it would be difficult to determine the line between what is deserving of a permaban and what isn't but, imo, what is lacking is a differently oriented moderation, from the actual moderators.
Seems like what is mainly punished here are direct, personal attacks but, on the other hand, we have some fine displays of over-the-top player bashing that i've never witnessed in any other forum. those do lead to increasing aggresion between members and have a lot to do with it. not trying to play the role of a 'white knight' because i am guilty, too, on some things said towards a couple of pros. but it's my observation from the time i've been around.

I don't think Hian was gay, btw, but he did have some weird tastes and did give a bit of a vibe due to the way he carried himself and the expressions he used
I do miss him a bit though, he chose to mainly spam/troll during his 'posting time' but he actually knew a lot about italian tennis and was good to discuss about it, the upcoming players, etc. He is better suited at TF, that's for sure.
