Reopen the roasting threads, scoobs.
At least when we had roasting threads for all the top players, the vileness was kept in there and the match discussion could actually take place in (who would have thought?) the match result thread.
Now, the vileness has nowhere to outlet, and is spread all over GM, including of course match result threads.
Do you really expect the situation will get better when the roasting threads will be back? Do you think that the crap which is being spread all over GM will stop then and people will only use the roasting threads to bash a player?
The roasting threads were fun a few years ago but I'm pretty sure they wouldn't work these days on the forum as people would post in there not with the light-hearted spirit which the threads had when - just to name 2 of the "legendary" pioneers from then
- Adam or RonE were around.
Today you just know what to expect when certain people enter a thread. They post the same thing over and over again which has already been said 1 000 000 times.
I don't know what a good solution could be to make MTF a better place and apparently the mods also don't know. In the end it is up to us users anyway to make the best out of the forum but it's understandable when people don't want to post a meaningful thread on GM when it gets buried within half an hour to the 2nd page.
Right now you couldn't recommend MTF to any tennisfan you would meet at a tournament or get to know elsewhere.
