Yeah, surprising since they usually keep Woz hate threads open for a couple of days so that everyone can have a bit of "fun" first. But why hasn't it been removed? Still, it's better than to dump it in here like they sometimes did in the past I suppose.
As for how you report a thread, if the original poster is the cause for it being a hate thread you'd have to report the original post I guess, but I wouldn't bother if I were you. GM is what it is because most enjoy it like it is and the mods are ok with that. All the reporting in the world isn't going to change anything.
And don't mind me, since I'm not into counter-trolling which is the preferred way of dealing with this stuff for the average GM-er I just had to let of some steam by way of nagging about it to you guys.
I guess it's time that I take another extended break from GM participation and stick to Caroline's fan forum for awhile.
I like the counter-trolling
expression. First time I hear it
You're right about it, debating with a troll can't bring nothing good. It's a pure waste of time. Besides, you know what they said:"Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience".
However, I can't totally agree with you about what you said in relation to the "report fonction". Since I joined the forum, I have reported some comments that I felt particularly disgusting. And in many cases the author was banished, whether for a few days or permanently. The system seems to work reasonably well. I guess that if enough people report a comment, the mods take note of it.
That being said, you've been a member for much longer than me, and I have not doubt that you went through many revolting situations where nobody took action despite repeated complaints
Well, it wasn't created for Caro bashers to discuss Caro in a civil manner but for Caro fans to discuss womens tennis in a civil manner, something which is impossible at GM. But yes, it was a stupid idea and way too ambitious.
I know, but I still think the thread was a mistake created in a moment of frustration. I mean, it's ok for what it is, but that's it.
If you're talking about the "Womens Tennis in General" thread, I rather think that it was a great idea. If you're not
talking about it, don't mind me
