4000+ posts and you still don't know that this thread doesn't belong in GM

But of course that doesn't stop you from giving mods advice

its time we wake up. Fed is done. the new stories in tennis concern Nadal and Djokovic.

i also believe that some immature fools who are just ate up with hate like karin, glenn, and prima trolla should be kept in check and not allowed to insult and attack other posters the way they do. karin is not so bad but the other 2 are completely useless and contribute nothing but hate to this forum.

mimi i respect the way you conduct yourself on this forum. always so calm and so well composed. and most importantly, always truthful and objective.

Sure. But why not post it in the right forum though?

you are one of the coolest. you are right about Nadal. i think both the Clay Monster and the Serbian Slayer are out there making some major statements. i am also happy for Murray for his title in Cincy.

Serbian Slayer figures to be huge factor at the U.S. Open.

well, there are rules about posting threads in the proper forum (along with other rules about posting in GM, just click that link).

You can't ignore simple posting rules and then expect mods to listen to your requests.

As the number of Roger's defeats increase the number of threads will decrease IMHO.

Believe it or not, there is no secret conspiracy to keep Federer threads at the forefront of GM at the expense of Nadal, Djokovic etc.

News just in - threads are started by posters who want to discuss a particular subject and, like it or not, Federer's continuing fall from grace is still big news in the tennis world. You, Clay Death, may be "over it", but apparently a lot of the tennis world is not and so they continue to discuss it - different threads are discussing different matters arising from it - and any threads on the same topic are merged, same as usual. You can join in or just ignore it if it doens't interest you but it's not going to go away any time soon, I suspect - Federer is still news. Attempts to "compensate" for this by starting tons of Nadal threads won't work - different Nadal threads on different subjects are fine of course, but just starting a bunch of new threads to talk about the same things will just see them all get merged, same as usual.

What matters here is tolerance of subject matter that you personally don't care for. There are tons of threads in GM that I personally find a complete waste of space, but that doesn't mean they should be moved or merged - if I don't want to talk on those subjects, I just ignore them, and that's advice I would give to everyone else.
