And I think that there should be some ways to keep the result threads in GM clean from trolling. I've read that trolling on MTF is against the rules so the usual suspects who are repeatedly doing that in the result threads shoud be warned.

Otherwise, scoobs can do what he wants. He's the boss

But this censorship is becoming too much. Fed's mate posted this in terms of Djokovic-Nadal on clay:

I am trying to visualize rafa beating Novak and i just cant see it. Sorry it aint happening.
An uninformed post to say the least. I responded with a smiley to which Fed's Mate insulted me (that post is now deleted).

Instead of running to the mods like a whiny little bitch, I took it upon myself to explain my situation (Nadal's many month title less drought that happens every year and his record on clay since 2005 that speaks for itself) and insult Fed's Mate back, calling him a fuckwit. Then, instead of being a man, insulting me back, and giving me a legitimate reason why he thinks Djokovic can actually beat Nadal on clay, the little punk ass bitch whines and cries to the mods and gets all the posts deleted

Don't dish it if you can't take it, kid.

The posts were in breach of the rules, so I don't know what your problem is.

Default Re: Severe Censorship

I just don't like the hypocrisy. And scoobs, I know it is a very difficult job moderating this site, and I commend you.

But you see insults flying all around GM 24/7. Should you not delete all posts?

Or does the loud mouth the one that gets fed? ie, the poster who complains gets his wish of deleted posts because he can't handle a naughty word being hurled in his direction when he flings it all around this site in every post he makes?

Look, posters like me would rather insult back when provoked than cry to the mods to have posts deleted. MTF vigilante justice, as it were. I guess it must be a philosophical difference.

Default Re: Severe Censorship

I don't see insults flying around GM all the time because I don't read every thread. Nor do any of the other mods. So in some cases, reporting posts is what gets them attention, otherwise mods might miss them.

Philosophically you might prefer to fight fire with fire, as it were, but that's still against the rules.

Perhaps we need to add another half a dozen or so mods to GM and NT.

You better not be talking about me, because I rarely use bad language in my posts, nor have I ever reported a post because it contained a swear word directed at me...

You can't call him a kid, when he's older than you

Also, his post was also deleted, so what's the problem?
You say you don't whine to the mods, but what exactly are you doing right now?

I think the big thing here is that if we do delete every single personal attack 3/4s of the board complains and if we don't delete every single personal attack, 3/4s of the board still complains.

Default Re: Severe Censorship

was that the Gulbis should retire thread?

If so why is this one still open

http://www.menstennisforums.com/show...php?p=10600357

whilst I agree the thread was a complete load of bollocks the other posters should at least be able to express that thought rather than it just being closed.

Bit different suggesting a guy in his early 20s should retire after a poor match than suggesting a guy approaching 30 and struggling a lot for results might be "done" in terms of slam wins and top 10 tennis, no?

The Gulbis thread is a typical, and silly reaction, to a bad loss by people on here, and if it were left up there's be handfuls of them every tournament. I don't think so.
