Who decided that and why? As far as I can tell, bad reps is the topic and anyhting about it belongs here. That includes commenting on the comments of those posting bad reps. Is that so much to ask?

Re: Who is the last poster to have BADrepped you? Vol 2

Have you known guys you can't bad rep someone without leaving a comment?

This alone proves bad rep thread isn't the same as good rep thread. This should leave some more field to discuss; several people don't come here just to bash, but they are nice respected forum members (cobalt60, Orka_n etc.) not really recognized for troll activity, who want to name, shame, and respond to their bad reppers.

I see what you mean here. DISCUSS being the keyword. If it stays normal discussion it's not a problem, yet 85% turns into fights. They get reported...so that tells me there is a problem here.

By all means, discuss away...but some of you should stop running to the mods everytime people jump on you for the badrep you sent out.

Have a blast!

Re: Who is the last poster to have BADrepped you? Vol 2

You're not here to discuss anything, you're here to call out the person who bad repped you, and usually give them a childish nickname, question their sexual prowess and quite possibly their parentage. You're just having fights and flamewars and that's still against forum rules.

Perhaps we just need to take away the ability of everyone to issue badreps if they cause this much trouble.

Yeah, we have 2 groups here - pro shit stirrers and normal members for whom receiving a bad rep is a subject to being cleared out, might be also in public since this thread exists and could fine serve that purpose.
A troll side of Nathii would like to read the mud fighting and a reasonable side sees what the problem is; a permanent ACC state that will escalate just like Jimbo's Red Army did once before got deleted. You surely remember Jim, Flava, Jerry all bad repping themselves and reporting it. And there were some sensible posters who accidentally got in the middle of it (I was a newbie then and remember being very outraged by uncalled hostility). IMO it's very similar here, some people dish reps and rude comments yet whine when receiving the same back, and half of it is getting reported.

Re: Who is the last poster to have BADrepped you? Vol 2

posters who report stuff in here blow goats...they shouldn't report stuff unless it's like the wishing death or racist gear...but, i mean, you should be able to say you are going to get heavily intimate with someones pet dog in response to a ridiculous bad rep without fear of repercussions from other posters and eventual overt censorship from the totalitarian few...even inside ill-feeling there should remain a code of honour and respect amongst non-cabbages

Amen

case in point poster "Mjau", who seems to issue a reddot every time he/she breathes yet runs whining to mods when his/her utterly clownesque reps are publicly denounced here for what they are: rubbish.

People just need to toughen up. It is MugTF after all.

Don't take anything said on here seriously, that line should be the first thing new posters read.

Perhaps we just need to take away the ability of everyone to issue badreps if they cause this much trouble.
Forum rules:

(1) Discriminatory remarks of any sort will not be tolerated. This includes, racist, homophobic, sexist, and any other degrading remarks about an individual or a group of individuals.

(2) Do not wish for players or fellow posters to be injured or dead.

(3) Do not utter threats against members or staff

(4) You may only use one (1) account. If you're having any issues with your account or need help changing your password, email etc., please contact the staff member. If you want to change your username, please have a look at this thread. Regular users can request one name change for free. Premium members may change their username once every month and can put their request here.

(5) Ideas and opinions may be challenged, but personal attacks are not allowed. If you have an issue with another member, try to resolve it privately via PM. If you cannot resolve the issue via p.m., contact a staff members for help.

(6) Do not harass members. Attempts to provoke or intimidate other posters will not be tolerated.


(7) Do not disclose private information about members without their consent (e.g. pictures, details about personal life, etc.).

(8) Do not post messages on behalf of banned members. Doing so will result in a ban for the poster who is conveying the message, and an increase in the ban length for the poster who is sending the message

(9) Refrain from using inappropriate/vulgar language in posts and threads. Also, what is appropriate in Non-Tennis, for example, might not be appropriate in GM or a player forum. Likewise, where certain language and discussions are fine in a thread clearly labeled that way, it may not be appropriate in a more general chat or tennis-related thread. Since this is an all-ages forum, we'd like to help people avoid the more offensive topics/posts if they so choose.

(10) Do not go into a player's forum to bash that player or troll the forum. Player subforums provide a place where fans can discuss events related to a player without hostility from other individuals.

(11) Do not bash staff members. While it is o.k. to criticize moderating decisions, if it is done in a rude and/or disruptive manner or involves personal attacks on moderators, it will NOT be tolerated.

(12) Spamming advertisements is not allowed whether by posts, starting threads or via PM. If you have a website you wish to divulge, put the link of it on your signature in a reasonable size. Spam also includes a) Product or service offerings from a business or organization, b) Products or services using pyramid scheme.

(13) Pornography, censored photos, or highly disturbing or graphic images, or links to sites containing such images are not allowed anywhere in the forums.

(14) Member signatures shall be in an appropriotate manner, both in content and in size. No excessively obscene or rude language/content is allowed, nor may you use it to harm or insult fellow members or to spread messages which are generally forbidden. If necessary, we reserve the righ to delete or edit members' signatures at any time.

(15) Avoid starting threads with a subject that has been discussed before. Use the 'search' function to find out if threads with the given subject have been started before, then use the old thread to discuss the topic.

(16) Start threads in the appropriate forums. If a thread is started in a forum where it doesn't belong, the thread will be moved to the appropriate forum or deleted.

(17) Please give warnings in your titles if needed for those who may not want to read the information in your thread (e.g. spoilers).




So far as I can tell, Rules 1, 5, and 6 are the only rules that are worth explicit consideration in relation to the "chatting" that goes on in this thread.

Assuming that oranges's original post in response to Sir Winston Cabbagehill's badrep was not in direct violation of any of these rules, I see no just and fair reason for its deletion. It is senseless to arbitrarily declare, "This thread should be a mere list and should contain no discussion of any kind." I do not see within the list of rules anything that would support such a decree. I think that scarecrows brilliantly demonstrated the wrongheadedness of this decree with his simple and obvious rejoining request:

If the concern is that the discussion in this thread would tend towards the violation of Rules 5 and 6, fair enough; however, a quick and cursory survey of most of the current GM threads would be sufficient to demonstrate how loosely the moderators tend to interpret "personal attacks[5]" and "harrassment[6]."

For example, JM is frequently trolling into threads in which Nole_Fan posts, belittling her, and slinging gratuitous insults at her and Djokovic in an obvious attempt to provoke and irritate her. Whether or not the mods find this justified because they are annoyed by the Nole-spam (looking at AJ in particular) is irrelevant; it still seems to violate Rules 5 and 6 without any consequences.

It seems that the "personal attacks" and "harrassment" must be pretty severe and direct before they stir the mods into action. If this is the case, then this thread should be allowed to proceed in the manner in which it has heretofore proceeded, requiring moderator intervention only when these rules are violated with the requisite "severity."

Bonus P.S.: I would be highly surprised if oranges's deleted post was in greater violation of Rules 5 and/or 6 than is JolanGago's use of "Scrott" in violation of Rule 1.

I don't find it particularly offensive, mind; the point is merely one of consistency.

Mods should stay out of this thread.

If they have Jerry Springer on TV, why can't MTF have it's own little equivalent?
