I don't think posters have the right to start trouble in threads.

I do not know what some of you think, but I do not think it's right to start trouble in posts when it is not warranted.

I have read and reread the first few posts of the Is Monica injured thread.

And I am still trying to decide why it was alright for someone to comment by rehashing something that happened to another player sometime ago and then make into some controversy?

As far as I can see that was never the intent of that post. So why was it turned into something it should not have been?

If i am wrong to think this so be it. But now I see why fights get started around here.

For starters that thread way invented by a multiple username troll (HELLO read his user name!) - why people gave it the time of day either to laugh at him, is beyond me.

Second, when people bring another player into an arguement that has nothing to do with that players, I generally assume they are trying to rub salt in the wounds of another poster, or attempt to award themsevles a hero cookie because they fave has achieved more, is better behaved - whatever.

Anyhow, the second someone does that I figure that whatever point they might have had is totally lost, as they clearly don't have one.

I should know - the only time I've ever done that, I didn't have a point

i bet this is about me, huh...well when someone loses a match and doesnt retire or mention anything about an injury and then some thread comes about asking if monica is injured only supplying a picture and assuming that she looks like shes in pain, then someone indirectly saying that monica was probably injured and wont say anything about it because she's a "class act"...obviously someones gonna say something about it especially since this has happened with other players in the past...if you havent noticed, this board isnt too friendly and accepting, anything will be taken as an insult...when you decide to right something in GENERAL MESSAGES, there is a high chance for other people who may not agree with you to see it and respond because this is a message board...for me it was just my opinion and you perceived it as starting trouble, but someone chose to write that in GENERAL MESSAGES not i...

Firstly - you are correct.

Posters dont have the right to start trouble in threads, its in the member agreement. what should also be addressed is that posters also dont have the right to retaliate with insults against such trouble if its deemed to have been started. I really dont get, why people here aren't adult enough to realise that "tit for tat" comments are best left in kindergarden, but sadly it seems to be a growing part of the community we have here.

Secondly, if these comments were solely aimed at one poster, it should have been done by email or private messages.

How would you feel

Right down, at your feet
Right now?

Thumbs down Get over it

While I love this forum I frankly and sick and tired of hearing people constantly whine about what others have written. If you do not like what they said then don't read it or move on. It is calle freedom of speak. In The USA it is also called a constitutional right.

STOP THE CENSORSHIP PEOPLE!!!

So you don't like what other say or write or don't like how they support their favorite play: GET OVER IT!

So many of you sound like cry babies who constantly whine whine whine. Drink you milk kids and get a life. I'm sure there are people who don't like what you've written too. So who cares...

Alright let me settle this once and for all. Monica was not injured. I saw both matches of her live. The one with Tamarine was the best, alot of rallies and both ladies were fighting. Monica was not injured. alright.

Cool Guilty as charged...

I guess you can count me in as one of the guilty parties, because I'll often respond and point out other instances, involving other players, just to show the "double standards" so often employed on this board. Pure and simple!! And yes, that often involves bringing in the Williamses, since they are the ones so often having to live up to the "double standards".

Again, this is a message board and the postings of ones opinions is the purpose and the right of the individual.

Jakeeve the people have spoken, and have a point.

If they want to come across as stupid, they have every right to do so

Yes, I agree with Rebecca ( Surprise, surprise - she is the most intellegent poster here after all). Yeah, people take MBs too seriously; come on, the real life is not hiding behind the screen you are straring at right now. So, when things get a little testier than you can handle, shut down your computer and go out and enjoy the real life. By the time you come back, the thread you are complaining about is most probably locked (you know they have really good moderators here, and I was not kidding when I wrote that). So, yeah, in short, all I am saying is I agree with Rebecca

They don't have a right, but nothing short of a brain transplant is gonna prevent that from happening. So I guess we'll just have to ignore it or live with it.

Jakeev, darling, I totally agree with you.

Unfortunately, some trolls on this board get their kicks by starting trouble.

I, personally, would recommend to these individuals:

a) a blow-up doll
b) a strap-on.

Enjoy!

Julie hit the nail hard on the coffin and damn she is so right. So, as much as it pains me to do so. I guess I owe oliver an apology.

I guess I could be nicer to people who start trouble but that is very hard for me.
