The rules were changed slightly a few days ago. Those kind of posts will no longer be tolerated.

This.

It's incredibly ridiculous and annoying really.

As expected, this as ignored

Ok, here's another question:

Why did a moderator of all people start a thread on GM about a Futures match that ended 0-6 ret. mere days after enforcing a rule whereby match fixing allegation are forbidden. It was pretty much expected that such accusations would exist in that thread and this mod isn't exactly known for posting futures threads on GM on a regular basis.

Since when is it considered "tolerant" to accuse someone of match fixing?

I can answer this for you. This is the opening post.

And Snowwy is an admin on this board, I will be very disappointed at him if he keeps posting future results thread on GM with scoreline 6-4 6-2.

Finally, may be this is the reason I don't see it your way is I know Snowwy follows future events regularly as he talked about those matches in Canada's players forum.

The OP didn't hint at match fixing but a thread about a match with such result is the perfect bait to get that 'infraction', as a lot of posters immediately associate such bizarre result with fixing. What you say next makes absolutely no sense: so because he is an admin Snowyy shouldn't start regular result threads (why exactly is this? Since when does being a mod/admin stop someone from posting about the sport normally?), yet you believe he should be posting threads that are inevitably going to result in posts that violate the forum rules and are effictively bait?

Do you have an answer for my other question btw?

Why a thread starter be responsible for what other posters post in a thread especially the title and the opening post are not flaming and no hinting of any match fixing?

e.g. a poster non-stop criticising a player, starting thread after thread on the player. Then, a fan of said player come into the thread and wishing death or injury to the thread starter, should the thread starter be accused of baiting? Should the thread starter held liable for the other poster being banned?

Futures and Chanllengers result threads should be in their respective forums unless there is something special about the match. If posters "regularly" start futures result thread in GM which have nothing special, I would considered it spamming. In your original post, your accusation stating since Snowwy did not regularly post future results thread in GM, thus, starting that one is considered baiting, is absolutley flaw. And that's the reason of my response.

Quote:

Your question was about a decision made by admins considering a certain activity on this forum. I am not a mod or admin so I do not have an answer for you.

The one I responded to was about a poster starting a thread in GM. And I see no reason behind your accusation.

How is a guy with 1111 posts, nice symmetry btw, a super mod? I personally haven't got an issue with Andreas but I'm sure he became Moderator recently, and now he's already Super Mod? :s.

I think he has been a moderator for over a year and a half when he was promoted to super moderator last month.

I can see why Snowwy posted that score in a thread because it was very unusual. But I wonder if since we don't already have sections for CHs and Futures, if those Match scores couldn't be added into those sections?

Why did Corey Feldman get banned for saying something about balkans in the Football zone, yet in the same thread Peter Pan says 'stupid English' and goes unpunished? I'm English and I take offence to that comment.

No, but I'm pretty sure mods saw the post. Whatever. I still think his prior ban was unjust considering it was apparantely for a personal attack on me when I never even reported the post. You mention the accumulation thing as the reason for his ban and the fact remains that two of his bans shouldn't have been bans. Now I don't want to get in trouble my self for this case, so please PM me to discuss this.

Deleting Jelena's post. To quote your response to one of my questions earlier in the thread 'classy' . Censorship at an all time high. Mods obviously know they made a mistake banning Feldman yet can't pluck up the courage to admit it. Shame really because there's nothing wrong with admitting you made a mistake.
