I quite like it there, because there is quite a bit of actual tennis talk as opposed to mindless gossiping but I hardly post.
Where? Seriously if a 1000 posts a day are made over there, probably about 10 are actually talking about tennis, the rest is mostly just mindless hate

Hard to crack down on it, when majority of the mod team are trolls in one way or another too

Re: Why is menstennisforum so mean?

pretty much full of insecure sexist virgins who think ATP is 'all that' and try to diminish women's tennis at every opportunity. also they like to think just because they picked up a tennis racket they're qualified as an expert and would be contracted by SKySports in 0.5 seconds. "mug, mug, mug, pusher, cheater, vulture". Also in their mind everyone is a clown for not choosing the shot they think that player should have made. They dont grasp the difference between sitting on your ass watching the game and actually playing the match.

So let's see, you made a comment about Ferrer vulturing, which here is pretty "mild", which over there is taken as "not mild". It sounds like we are meaner.

I wonder how many people were bad repped when Murray beat Ferrer in Miami then.

Re: Why is menstennisforum so mean?

It's fine but not great, I follow men's and women's tennis almost equally at this point but I definitely prefer TF. My biggest problem is that on GM every single player is bashed. It's like there are absolutely no good players on tour

Venus Williams-Ana Ivanovic-Serena Williams-Vika Azarenka-Caroline Wozniacki

McHale-Stephens-Watson-Robson-Townsend

Brodsky-Muhammad-Hampton-Keys-Crawford-Andrews-Hardebeck

LOL pretty much. On TF, the vilest language and stereotypes become commonplace quickly because there is more traffic here.

Re: Why is menstennisforum so mean?

Also, their mods are a bigger joke than ours and even participate in some of the childish behaviour lol

TF has better mods. That's the obvious difference.

If only TF mods would listen to their subjects more and would post the reason for bans like they do on MTF Or at least the "banned!" thing under the username. Then we would like you more

THe moderators on the men's forum are much more hands off than on the womens forum..

Never chase love, affection or attention. If it isn't given to you freely by another person, then it isn't worth having.

Re: Why is menstennisforum so mean?

I am surprised at the number of moderators there compared to here.

Re: Why is menstennisforum so mean?

They're like this forum but much more retarded, offensive, and way less creative at trolling.

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.
