Default Yet another Proposal for GM - No new proposal (Stop pedantism)

This is not supposed to be a place for elitist reviews/analysts only.

Anyone should be welcome to tennis conversations, "serious" or not completely serious. That kind of ideas separates people in groups, which is just wrong for a sport as popular as tennis.


Thank you.

(Is it about me? )

I am kind of OK about the Advanced Discussions thread but it is not like there won't be any fun left with many threads still has trolling/human reaction/armchair analysis or such. My "new proposal" was just to make all of the "NewsBot" articles be in one place, but I think unlike Advanced Discussions humor would still be allowed. I was actually thinking also about putting all of the results of matches on one place (also as an anti-spoiler thread to those who don't want to know the results but wanted to participate in other discussions) but most of the traffic here is due to that too so I think leaving it in the front page is appropriate.

I don't think that was the idea behind AD. Nothing wrong in keeping "serious" discussion troll free. Anyone is still welcome to post, but I'm not sure why polluting good threads with garbage would be a good thing. Besides, a subforum makes these threads more easily accessible. I for one find the search function often less than reliable.

Attention seeking to the fullest. Why wouldn't you make your bone about the advanced serious discussion idea in the thread itself?

It was ought to be called 'the treasure trove' anyhow and then a member's final post altered the decision. Trust you though to brand it elitist because it opts to exclude troll-boys and fan-boys tho.

Sorry if you feel ostracized.

He knows it wasn't the idea, he just wants your attention and responses. The bloke even replied in the thread itself.

They'll keep trolling as long as you let stuff like this slide.

It's funny, you're answering exactly like a person full of himself would. So your presence in there is perfectly appropriate.
That's good, keep up the good work.

"Treasure Trove" was even worse, if you ask me, as a title. Like - look! My comments are so precious, they're a treasure and deserve to be placed in the treasure trove!

I'm a man of every people, and this place is supposed to be popular (for the people), not a treasure trove.

Keep watching brave-heart movies mate.

Yes, I am stealing your land and taking over the ordinary person.

Ofcourse it would take someone of your limited intellect to think in this pattern.

Hilarious factor in all of this is the kid knows he's being irrational, but will rather play dense because he thinks it stirs up a racket.

Go and check it out; 'the people spoke' and the 'people' were in favour of it. Whatever 'party' you're leading as an MTF 'politician', it's supporters are wafer thin.

Power to the peasants! Death to the aristocracy!

In all seriousness, this 'treasure trove' idea will fail. Or at the very least it won't be a roaring success as I suspect you think it will turn out to be. It will be subject to targeted trolling from certain individuals, even if it is supposedly going to be more strictly moderated. Serious, quality tennis discussion is not possible on this website, don't you know? For every one 'analyst', there are one-hundred 'trolls'. You can't keep them out.
