I can understand a banned user making a DA but making a DA when you're allowed to use the one you have is ridiculous, especially considering the high chance of getting caught.
Not enough cowbellSampras

I did think it was odd that there suddenly was 2-3 posters in GM going on about Sampras' greatness in every post... normally nobody gives a shit about Sampras here on MTF

Mug ban, imo.

Nah, some of the most notorious trolls here have made a continuous history of successful trolling. RAFAism, Glenn, etc, have all been trolls who rile up MTF every time.

I'd add ACC GOAT StartdaGame but to this day I don't think he was a troll, he was just truly out of this world.

You're right. It wasn't this bad at all when I joined but since not even the most notorious trolls get banned, this is what you get. I just wish more people would just ignore the biggest attention whores though... maybe then we'd have less of them. You don't even need to put them on the ignore list, just don't respond to their posts.

I never minded the term, it was kind of funny and it characterized MTF for me.

I do however feel like the negativity, trolling and blind fanboyism is really getting out of hand. Everyone who loses is described with words like pathetic and actually so are most of the winners. I think most of us here are tennisplayers or at the very least avid fans of tennis. If anyone should have the utmost respect for the talent and hard work that is required for ALL top players working their ass off it's us. I know this is hard at times (I'm looking at you Tomic), but really..can't we do better than this?

Definitely yes. I guess as the other platforms have become more popular, and the forums declined, now the hardcore fans/tards are probably more vocal and more visible than before.

mug these days is very mild, and more tongue in cheek than anything else. More often embedded in a name, like Mugerer or Mugikori, Mugray, Muglos etc.

What you say is correct.
