Tardwards, I genuinely don't feel like posting anymore

Good threads are limited and those limited one gets pushed down by these petty, childish tardwar infested little wars.

It's a major problem with this board AND it's about time someone spoke up.

Most members, not all, seem to be sad tribal members of a player or set of players. All we are seeing are pathetic attempts to try and champion their player by making a flawed or exagerated argument for the put down of another player.

We're seeing kind of arguments we'd witness in a classroom of 12 year old discussing this sport. It's a joke and WE NEED a moderating system that gets this rubbish off this forum, there needs to be action because all these tribal fools are doing are creating needless, boring, unless, repetitive, predictable arguments in threads. It's encouraging others who are actually bloody tennis fans to conform to this stoopid norm and troll!

Somebody do something. I don't feel like posting anymore.

There needs to be a subforum with "tard-war debates" and then a moderator or set of moderators moving these threads there using common sense.

There is already, it's called General Messages

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

As long as MTF has rules but apparently some users are getting away with breaking them (obvious trolling, players bashing, personal attacks etc.) GM won't change.

It's no wonder many people already left the forum or post less.

Someone with a post making sweeping generalizations about player fans in his signature is complaining about "tard wars".

Focus on the good things. Don't let the negativity influence you at all.

I myself am tired of it many times, but I must continue, for there are people who truly deserve attention around here. Although they don't stand in front of anyone else, because they don't troll.

Re: Tardwards, I genuinely don't feel like posting anymore

Well... I'm here since 2010, and it has always been a Rafa-Fed war.
Then when Novak rose to number one, their fans turned hostile... IDK, maybe "If my player can beat them, I can participate here too".
And now it's a threesome until Murray decides to be number one.

The biggest part of the forum (GM and NT) is not about tennis, so... We should probably consider changing the forum's name.
If you don't mind, I purpose "The dungeon of King Viruz".

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!
Take a good long stare, you know you want to.
You're not even man enough to look at my face.

Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.
Appeal moderation is always hungry for your soul and sweet emotions.


First and once godly-worhispped appeal moderator.
(Actually 2nd)
