Support for Gu

He doesn't deserve this punishment.

Re: Petition supporting GlennMirnyi (banned for 6 months from General Messages)

Glenn shouldn't have been banned, maybe given a warning at most. What about posters like Bad Religion or R=FK who has nothing intelligent to contribute but to say ''Federer sucks. Gasquet is gay.'' At least Glenn has decent composition skills and knows about tennis. However, some things he have said are a little harsh and can cross the line at times. But sixth months? No way.

Wimbledon Upsets:
Safin def. Djokovic 6-4, 7-6, 6-2
Schuettler def. Blake 6-3, 6-7, 4-6, 6-4, 6-4
Kudryavtseva def. Sharapova 6-2, 6-4
Tipsarevic def. Roddick 6-7, 7-5, 6-4, 7-6
Dancevic def. Nalbandian 6-4, 6-2, 6-4
Zheng def. Ivanovic 6-1, 6-4
Tanasugarn def. Jankovic 6-3, 6-2
Radwanska def. Kuznetsova 6-4, 1-6, 7-5

Re: Petition supporting GlennMirnyi (banned for 6 months from General Messages)

I support the petition,it's totally unfair that someone who has such knowledge in tennis get a ban for nothing.
He contributes so much to GM.

Re: Petition supporting GlennMirnyi (banned for 6 months from General Messages)

I echo what most are saying in this thread. This ban is too harsh, especially when also considering the fact that no prior warning was given. In addition, his status as a premium member should have afforded him the right to have this matter discussed with a mod prior to any action being taken.

Gu is far from being the most politically incorrect poster on GM. Furthermore, unless a poster is a newbie, most know that Gu's clashes on GM aren't meant to be taken seriously, but with a laugh at the off color humor. And it says something when the very posters he jests at are surprised by the action taken by the mods.

As I said, there are many posters on GM who next to GU make him seem like a baby lamb. They haven't been banned Hence the saying, what's good for the goose is good for the gander. Since that doesn't seem to be the case, I hope this ban isn't a result of someone manipulating the situation behind the scenes to get this desired outcome.

Please try to resolve this situation without this type of ban.





p.s........if it was a regular poster on mtf that complained about GU Grow Up because that was petty.

At the same time, I have had nice experiences outside of GM with Glenn. He knows a lot about tennis, and has much to contribute to the forum.

It's hard to comment on the ban without knowing the details. I support openness and tolerance in the forum (though posters should understand that with this freedom comes a responsibility to practice restraint and tolerance oneself). If penalties are to be imposed, they should be applied consistently and unambiguously -- and that is what appears to be problematic in this situation.
I am breaking my silence because I was asked. However Matt says it quite well. I personally have no issues with Gu. I enjoy what he posts but honestly I rarely read what he posts in General Messages. That said how about if everyone just grows up a bit more Or is that too much to ask?

The great thing about democracy is that it gives every voter a chance to do something stupid.

Re: Petition supporting GlennMirnyi (banned for 6 months from General Messages)

This realy looks to be very harsh, there are some (in fact many) much worse posters who deserve it more!
So I support GlennMirnyi 100%!
You should have same criteria for all!

I support Gu.
From what I saw him posting on GM, it seems to me 6 months banning is so unfair.

The mind sees what it wants to see

I just hope that even if Mods decide that they were right all along they at least show up in this thread and explain themselves because very good points have been made and some answers would be appreciated.

Re: Petition supporting GlennMirnyi (banned for 6 months from General Messages)

Like some of you say, I don't particulary share the way he behaves in GM, and I must tell that I've felt pretty bad more than once 'cause of a biased comment he said. [I haven't reported him BTW]
Anyway, I've talked to him out of GM and he seems like a good person who wants to help when its needed and stuff...
Quite strong news!

Well, PEACE for all of the members of this forums..

Re: Petition supporting GlennMirnyi (banned for 6 months from General Messages)

6 months is too long, 3 would be more fair.

The mods are not going to come in here and explain themselves, and they shouldn't do that anyway. It has not been done before beyond the brief explanations posted in the banning thread. There are so many rumors, half-truths, and innuendos floating around on this topic that half wouldn't believe what they posted anyway.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: Petition supporting GlennMirnyi (banned for 6 months from General Messages)

yes, Gu aka GlennMirnyi should be allowed to post in General Messages again, please.
I guess he will behave nicely (what is needed) and keep contributing to the site.

Re: Petition supporting GlennMirnyi (banned for 6 months from General Messages)

Concerning the topic, I couldn´t care less if he´s banned or not, he´s one of the very few posters in my ignore list, that says enough, and even if he wasn´t I wouldn´t care shit. But this petition is beyond hilarious, just bc of these laughs it´s been certainly worth the ban


Now you can keep moaning

It would be nice if they did considering the topics raised in here are of relevance and if they need to show strength then fine but it's not as if there won't be more issues in the future and the points should be adressed at some point.

Neither of these things matter a jot, they should still address the issues bought up and if people choose not to believe then fine.
