Re: Where's Apoleb?

Wow, a permaban for calling Martha "Crapova" and "local?"

That's ridiculous. Apoleb posted nothing worthy of a perma.

Apoleb is really a girl or are you just being funny?

Politics. The snarky meanies are rabidly hated by most people in here, and the moderators gave in to mob rule.

I only got a week ban for saying the truth about how useless, benign, and ugly Azarenka is.

Re: Where's Apoleb?

Apoleb is a Lebanese man I am sure.

Never give up on something that you can't go a day without thinking about.

Re: Where's Apoleb?

If it indeed is a permaban, he will be deeply missed.

Re: Where's Apoleb?

I think in the end he overdid the whole insulting name calling thing. He pretty much didn't call certain players by their names anymore. But haven't said that I don't think it should be a perma ban but I don't know the whole story.

Re: Where's Apoleb?

Corswandt has a point that it is likely the mods being submissive and buttering-up to fans of the "victim" player(s), cuz there is a whole lot of them. So I don't believe they banned Aploeb cuz they genuinely judged that his namecallings like "Crapova" and "Myth" went over the line. After all, the mods did allow that to continue for a while, and also routinely allow worse names than that, all the time (like Mona "Freddy [Krueger]" Barthel, Justine "Herpes", Pedo Petra, Coketina Hingis... etc etc). Calling that last-mentioned person "Myth" is tame by comparison.

Re: Where's Apoleb?

Apoleb was one of the more knowledgeable posters on the forum. A shame to ban him for some disparaging remarks about useless players.

Permaban . Many posters have done way worse and aren't banned.
