You (and bilbo, of course) are maybe missing the point that a ''forum'' is a place for all opinions to be heard. Don't confuse a forum with a propaganda site or a fan site.

What you think I should do is the equivalent of suggesting that all General Message posters go to their own favourite player's website, where they can be sure that the only opinions heard will be just like their own.

That would be bland, boring, comforting and lacking stimulation. But hey, maybe that is what you are looking for.

There's no need to wink when you mention the right. Economically I am definitely on the right. Personal lifestyle is another story.

Re: Do The Mods Think They're Gods?

For the beginning, I'd like to know who of the mods take this or that action? When I got banned (yes, hard to believe it but I once was :angel), Scoobs wrote me a message. So, I knew the author. Now, who closes the threads? Who closed my nice and funny thread about semifinals at WTF? I'd like to know who is that idiot, if possible, please

And yes, hypocrisy makes me so mad that I don't care about any politeness and political correctness Unf. Americans, and most of the mods are Americans as I understood, are the biggest hypocrites of all the nations. It's cultural. Sometimes I think they managed to pursuade themselves they have roses instead of crap coming out of their arses (copyright George, I just slightly changed the phrase ).

The 3 administrators of this forum are all Europeans. 2 supermods are South Americans and another an Australian. Even you count all the moderators (including only player forums plus a Canadian), there are only 5 moderators from North America. So 5 out of 17 moderators in this forum are considered as most? Even we stretch it more to include the 2 South Americans as the Americans you're referring to, which I highly doubt, your statement, the bold part, is still false.

That'd be more transparent if you say how many of those 5 monitor GM and Non-Tennis

Also, get one East-European and one Asian and I will feel less discriminated

The transparency is here, only you don't bother to look it up. It's extremely easy for you to find it out yourself because the link is at the bottome of the home page of this forum but anyway, here's the link which exists for many years already.

http://www.menstennisforums.com/showgroups.php

You can see for yourself which moderators are responsible for which forums.

It shows cleary that other than the supermods and admins, Raging Lamb is the only mod from North America, a Canadian, who moderates GM only. All other moderators for GM and NT are 3 Europeans (SloKid is from Slovenia who may qualify as East European, I'm not sure so I don't really want to assume), 2 South Americans and 1 Australian.

But if you prefer to belief/think yourself being discriminated on this board because of where you're from, there's nothing in this world will change your mind.

Actually, that's really not correct anymore. There are no specific moderators for GM or NT, all of us that formally were are supermods so we all help out in all areas

Are you saying player forum mods like Jess, Jiat, Deb etc are also moderators for all forums too? Because I don't think they have involved in moderating GM or NT

No... I said GM and NT mods don't have specific moderators anymore because they were the areas being talked about. You mentioned that Raging Lamb moderated in only GM but that isn't true anymore... so I was just mentioning that in that way, that list is not really in date anymore

OK! So basically the list of moderators for GM and NT is basically the same. The admin, supermods and RL. Anyone else?

It's really late here so my brain may not be working correctly

No, there is no specific GM or NT mod, RL, Fergie, Zirconek were all GM and I was NT but now we are all Supermods so there is no one specific for those forums anymore, we all help in all sections.

Re: Do The Mods Think They're Gods?

OK, so other than RL, Fergie, Zirconek, Neely, SloKid, Carlita and you, anyone else can moderate GM and NT?
