The thing about Gu is just that he has 2 sides.

The rational, cool, intelligent, guy who is very knowledgable about tennis and can construct his arguments in a rational way and have conversations with,

and of course, the mean spirited, racist, sexist, demoralizing jackass we all see in GM, who constantly is insulting people and using the fanboy and other repetetive one liners over and over.

He has the capability of being a great poster on here and sharing his views intelligently as a great human being. I've seen it manifest itself. Why he continues to choose the path of assclown is beyond me. Why a guy that smart constantly tries to be stupid, it really makes no sense.

Just two points that must be clarified:
1- I got no warning. That's not a rumour, that's a fact.
2- I'm not racist or sexist. Those are awful accusations.

I must admit Glenn can ruffle a couple of feathers, but this seriously doesn't justify a guy who contributes alot to the forum being banned for 6 months, if you put aside all the stuff in the GM you can see how he puts in alot of insightful and meaningful discussions in the other sub-forums, and elaborates on many intelligent planes, yet this is overlooked in relation to his so called 'bad' demeanours. If glenn gets banned, then why isn't someone like RFK getting the same consequences as well?, he clearly incites hate and calls specific fangroups derogatory terms, yet is able to get away with it, however such personas are seen as jokers by me personally and by so many other people as well, who usually just brush it off and ignore it and find it funny, which Glenn comes under. Do you mods seriously think a guy who loves Tennis so much would want to stick his neck out so far that the following situation would occur, I'm 100% sure he wouldn't,which makes this thread and discussion quite frustrating to read, as this shouldn't even be happening.I'm also inclined to say that the fact Gu got no warning before being banned is quite appalling as there was no attempt to even deter what you deemed as 'bad' from occuring if you at least messaged him beforehand, the fact it was a straight ban is quite shocking, and isn't the right system when dealing with these kind of situations. I just hope you guys do the best for the forum, and keep one of the best and most recognised posters unbanned so his qualities can stayed appreciated to present posters of the forum, and new individuals to the forum.

I bet if our fellow Spaniard poster got banned not even his mom would ask him back.

I'm not sure what you're referring to there but if you're calling him a racist because of a few jokey remarks he's made, then you could be called that too because of some sweeping, generalizing comments you made about France and the French. And many other posters on GM too. If I were to complain about all posts like that I saw from you and many other posters (I wouldn't because I have a sense of humour and they don't offend me), does anyone really think those posters would be banned? Seems like there's a lack of consistency there.
When you think about what a poster like R=FK has got away with, praising Hitler, being an apologist for ****, etc. not to mention being caught with a double account, there really is a lack of consistency.

In the thread on banned posters, there is indeed one poster who has been banned permanently (not sure how that is accomplished, but anyway) because of creating double accounts. RFK gets away with a lot. I guess it would be nice to have a uniform set of standards, and for those to be applied uniformly to all posters.

Bad decision. Specially not giving a warning previously and giving an extreme penalty. And moderators should be accountable too btw ... and if they dont listen to the other posters and dont explain themselves, something is wrong with the system.

Gustavo is a very smart kid. It is obvious (for anyone with two neurons) that GlennMirnyi is just a "telling as he sees it" persona that Gustavo built. And, most of the time his comments are tongue-in-cheek/ not to be taken literally. I would take his "rude" remarks anytime over the "awww ... puppies are cute, why you hate each other, that player has pretty legs" comments. Or over those pretentious comments from guys that like to gloat about their "knowledge".

Gustavo: It seems that a lot of the fanboys/ fangirls got mad though...I blame Brittney Spears for being on a slump.

Don't be so oversensitive, nobody killed people here.

A private forum I support, mind you.

I just posted to clear some rumours, not to defend a point.

I think your previous ban may count as your warning.
