Celebrating an injury is much less vile than wishing it?
 
Whising an injuring is a minimum of one month I think but shouldn't have some sort of penalty celebrating that a tennis player is injured?

I have this moral question.

What is so difficult to understand :facepalm:

I personally wouldn't and don't think anyone else should celebrate a player any player having an injury or even being ill. But as far as I know there is no penalty for this situation here on MTF. I would say if you see a post that bothers you that you should report it to the mods and let them look at it.

If the mods banned everybody who celebrated and was happy about a certain player, ahem, we all know who, being injured, then half the board would be banned :shrug:

This is why I've been using the ignore list more often these days.

Well that is yet another way to handle the situation just put people on ignore. But I personally think if someone is really upset about this going on at MTF they would want to see and read the posts and report those posts to the mods. Of course, if a boatload of posts get reported I'm sure the mods would rather we use the ignore function! Another idea is just be very careful what threads you go into in GM. The thread title usually will give someone an idea of if they want to go into that thread or not. It would be good to know how the mods would actually like this situation to be handled.

Silence. I see.

I think wishing injury is one thing.

Being happy that a player is not playing - for reasons of injury or otherwise, is a different matter. Is it very nice to be glad a player can't play due to injury? No. Should we be policing that? I don't personally think so, not as a rule in itself.

However, the floor is open, if people have opinions on this, let them say what they think should happen and we can talk about it.

So far the response hasn't been very strong.

It's a non-issue. It would be absolutely ridiculous if there were to be a rule against a poster expressing his/her happiness at a player's injuries.

Since it is Nadal, and a lot of MTF posters hate Nadal, of course nothing will be done about the haters wetting themselves about the guy not playing.

If the shoe was on the other foot, and it was Federer out with injury, and Fed haters were wetting themselves, they'd all get banned in a flash.

Double standards much?

Either way, being happy about someone being injured is fucking pathetic and classless, regardless of fan affiliation. I don't like to see anyone being injured, it is devastating to an athlete, and I don't wish it upon anyone. Karma, people, also basic humanity. In an ideal world, I hope for every player to be 100% healthy and competing at a high level.

Those happy about Nadal, or anyone, being out, they have some issues in their own lives they need to sort out.

Let them celebrate. It's an easy way to weed out the hopeless pricks.

The double standard is in your head because that's basically just not true. Someone saying they are glad player X is not playing this tournament, due to injury or otherwise, is not against the rules. Other things they say at the same time might well be, but that in itself is not.

This is bullshit and you know it. I understand you are more sympathetic to Fed than Nadal, and are trying to appease the masses, but come on, let's be realistic here.

Evidence or STFU.

So you want me to start an anti-Federer thread, get the Fedtards all riled up, reporting my posts, and get myself banned? There is your evidence. Fuck that. Meanwhile, the Nadal haters are free to dance on Rafa's grave all over the board, abraxas goes around accusing him of doping behind thinly veiled vocabulary, and nothing happens. There is your evidence. Anyone accuse Fed of doping with thinly veiled vocabulary? Thread deleted, banned poster. And I have nothing against Federer. I am just pointing out this ridiculous double standard.

I have a feeling this is also a personal vendetta. You've said you'd "put a contract on me" if MTF was the Sopranos. So much for moderator objectivity.

Power corrupts.
