Well, things are pretty calm around here at the moment but I suspect that if Caroline loses at Wimbledon we will get some unwanted posters gloating here so I guess it would be ideal if we had a moderator before then. Has Frode been posting lately? If so perhaps he/she did not notice the PM? There were times in the past where it took me weeks to notice I had a PM.

Re: We could do with our own Mod(s) here. Comments, suggestions please.

Well, I'am very happy we have a mod assigned here at last... Welcome back Ryan...

But I would like more...

I think Angliru should be assigned rights to modify his many threads that are the information source for our Danish tennis habit.

Further I think we need a sharp cookie (or two) that are in the live score thread on the hot days. I love Ryan but he is not that person.

Moreover I would like some feedback and clarification as to what we are expected to endure in terms of abuse. GM is not moderated by the published rules, and despite reporting infractions in Caroland, Favouritism has been shown to certain offenders of what can best be called a favourite clique.

Finally, The WTA world number 1, has zip, zero. nada, ingen, representation in GM.

I am frankly tired of the persistence of deliberate contravention of rule one abuse in GM. You can excuse a "dynamic" any way you want. However, the reality of a perverted preference and tolerance, of certain affiliated members based upon who is online is not acceptable or sustainable.

You, "the admin" set the rules, We Danes are stupid enough to abide by them. We are not however stupid enough to see when a system is being played for advantage.

Angliru a mod for admin please.
GM mod for fairness and the removal of the mere 30-40 idiots who ruin GM.
An extra mod for live scores.

I am also very glad that with Ryan we have a mod here. I would also like to know why when it comes to Caro - rule 1 is not applied in GM. GM has virtually become out of bounds for talking about Caro to fans and non fans on any sensible basis.

There is a very real sense of injustice and rules being selectively applied to some posters and not others. I don't know what some Carofans have got bans for - I saw them mainly in Caro threads defending some pretty nasty comments. If you break a rule - then the fact that someone else also did it is no defence. But it leaves a nasty taste of different standards being applied and nastiness with baiting, bullying, mocking Caro and her fans is par for the course and allowed in GM.

It could be that I'm the only one that feels this way, but to me it makes no sense for us Caro fans to post on GM. I used to be an at times very active member on GM - even though I disliked the attitude of lots of posters there even back then. But in the last couple of years I've hardly posted anything there. Players in general and Caro more than anyone else is constantly the victim of vicious attacks and the same is true for her fans. I see no reason to participate (and thus support) on a forum where we can only expect ridicule and where the girl we admire is the subject of a never ending stream of disgusting comments - and apparently all with the approval of those that should uphold "the rules" that obviously in their opinion don't apply when it comes to Caro.

I think this is the 'sad' part off it all, it shouldn't be like this(people who actually wanna discuss tennis in general) are avoiding the General discussion forum because the rules set up aren't followed(uphold)..

I perfectly understand you though, but really...

Wimbledon under way, Caroline yet to play and already the true nature of the GM cocks is in play.

How in hell are posts like these deemed acceptable? Why the moderators have not pounced on theses, and the posters issued with bans if beyond rational thinking.

TF doesn't need scum like this, and as long as their is an apparent bias in GM moderation it will get worse.

The mods should be ashamed. Outrageous.

Im really starting to think that the people running these forums are actually happy about the vile atmosphere against Caro in GM, that's pretty much the only explanation why nothing's done about people like that.

I wasn't offended by that at all. I'm getting immune to this shit, I think.

Only Chrono's infamous post that got him banned, pissed me off a bit.
