Re: Goodbye Big John

Good riddance I say. He was so rude, aggressive and annoying. Was just as deluded in some of the things he said as some of the people he mocked.

After Nadal beat Monfils at Doha, before AO 2014

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal

Scoobs can't handle the competition.

Also Big John is the type to make an alt. I'll give it a week at best.

sorry but this is BS. BigJohn was being just as much of a deluded tard himself. Don't know what finally got him permabanned, but you could've seen this coming from miles away.

Re: Goodbye Big John

Big John was surely a playertard and also quite an aggressive poster. His permabanning was just a matter of time.

However he was not as downright stupid or purely delusional as many other playertards, he was just intolerant (both towards and Rafa/Novaktards and other stuff like religion). I noted that he wrote with a quieter and more subdued tone lately, especially compared with the ACC wars of 2011 where he and Clay Death would have probably injured each other IRL had they been given a chance.

Not Big John's biggest fan, but MTF loses another profile.

Re: Goodbye Big John

In general I'm against permabanning posters, but can't say Big John will be missed - he was truly horrendous poster in more ways than one.

MTF games titles:

Suicide Tennis (5): Wimbledon 2014, World Tour Finals 2015, Madrid 2015, Kuala Lumpur 2014 and Metz 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 WTF, 1 Masters 1000, 2 ATP 250; 2 finals lost

Fill-in-the-Draw (3): US Open 2014, Rotterdam 2013 and Geneva 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 ATP 500 and 1 ATP 250

Tennis Tipping (3): Veneza and Todi 2014 (with vn01), Knoxville 2015 (with Redkop) - 3 challengers; 7 finals lost

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....

Re: Goodbye Big John

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.

For those saying Hian was banned because he is gay, I think you should visit the banned users thread. Hian asked to be permanently banned. It was a ban at the users request.

Re: Goodbye Big John

I had some nice chats with Big John, but then he seemed to lose his sense of humor and fun and started taking himself and this place to seriously. It was as if he had taken up a crusade to rid MTF of stupidity and then started thinking that any opinion other than his own was stupid.

I think repeated year long bans would have the same effect as pemabaning. I'm against capital punishment too. Maybe vlife is just as precious.

In vlife, however, reincarnation is possible, and we may see Big John again in a different guise. I hope it's a guise that doesn't get him banned.

All the posters who liked BigJohn can thank me I guess, because if I had reported the nasty PMs he send me, he probably would have been permabanned long time ago already

Agree with the bolded portions and yeah, "crusade" is a good word for it. He was becoming increasingly anti-Serbian as well, attacking some new posters who had only 9 posts and hadn't said anything particularly tardish, just that they had Serbian flags and Novak avatars.

His inability to tolerate any opinion that wasn't the "right" opinion (i.e. his own) really started to grate on me. It's too bad; I used to enjoy chatting with him as well.
