Re: Ask MTF Mods

Why is calling Nadal's defeats "pig roasting" and likening the Spaniard to a pig is so widely approved of, allowed and overlooked by the moderation? This is a slur of the worst kind, a highly offensive, slanderous and disgusting one, yet it is outrageously widespread throughout the whole board.

Why?

And please don't ask me to get links and pictures regarding this issue as I already have provided a bucketload of them by reporting comments containing said insults, yet not even a single one was given a damn by the moderation in weeks.

Why?

For the same reason why Federer is allowed to be mocked as "Turkey" with roasted turkey pics when Federer is beaten by Nadal.

An equally disgusting thing to do, you are right! None of this stuff is acceptable.

It seems it was accepted at the time by the then moderation team, and is now ongoing. There are also long-term jokes regarding many other players, but since Nadal is the number 1 player and very successful, he gets the brunt of it.

What you can do is make a new thread in the suggestions area and give your opinion there and what you think will be acceptable and what isn't, then maybe we can see what others think of this.

You know where the suggestions area is, but here- http://www.menstennisforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=5

Not sure which of your threads you mean, but threads that are started for the purpose of trolling or for the intention of attacking a player or poster(s) are not suitable for GM.

Re: Ask MTF Mods

Why can't I point out that 2009 was the only year in which an independent anti-doping agency did testing at Roland Garros?

It's a fact, I'm not implying anything.

So you weren't implying anything? Fair enough. It was deleted for being off-topic.
