Didn't TeeRexx get suspended for calling J Cap "Miss Manners" too often?
I got "questioned" for some of the things I said about certain players early on, so I don't think the moderators are too quick on the "ban trigger".
I definitely earned a suspension that I never recieved and that had nothing to do with race, Williams or even players I didn't like.
Also many of the banned just come back and cause trouble in new stupid identities anyway. A showing of their true low character
and ultimately proof that the bans were valid.
Moral of the story above is, by now, no one is ignorant enough to know that referring to anyone named Williams as an ape or monkey is "harmless fun".
If you do it, you should be suspended.
There is no, enhancement of tennis related dialogue (sp) in such speech (not funny, not clever, not informative, not thought provoking and mainly not nice).
That said, I don't think its wrong to generally insult players or make fun of players. J Cap isn't called Miss Manners because she's white, its her foul mouth. Hingis got Chucky because of the Evil Grin. Hanchukova's skinny, Lindsay was "not skinny" and the list goes on and on. Venus chronic injuries are the butt of jokes and sometimes I don't like them but its fair play; just like Sister arrogance is fair play (talk about the most over done topic on a supposedly pro-Williams site
There are lots of mean/funny insults everyone can hurl across these boards without going below the belt with ape/monkey comments directed towards black players.
PS. ALL BLACKS v. SPRINGBOKS gotta love it!!!
If your fave's coach isn't Richard Williams, that's just her first problem
I was there when the ALL BLACKS won the World Cup in 2011!
