Why double standards?

WTA forum exists on Menstennisforums, but nearly any ATP-related subject is being persecuted relentlessly here.

Why is it such a problem?

People asked this q before. The WTA forum is there because when WTAworld crashes, people can go there to bitch about it and also talk about women's tennis without filling up the GM forum there. But people only use it when this board is down. Why? Because it is called Mens Tennis Forums.

you wouldn't think so. but maybe the terms of the settlement was complete separation? we'll probably never know...i doubt the men's forum will ever crash. there doesn't seem to be as much traffic there as over here on the women's side.

It was crashing every 10 minutes when the half of WTAWorld herd moved over there when WTAWorld was down. Have more than 150 concurrent users in there and it will crash right away.

The WTA forum on MTF exists for the purpose of providing you with a place to go should this site be closed for maintenance etc. Due to the sheer size of WTAworld compared to MTF, this site is more prone to technical problems and crashes; if things continue as well as they have recently the WTA forum on MTF will be closed.

I believe fans of mens tennis deserve a separate site with a range of forums for different topics. How would you feel if we lumped the WTA forum at the bottom a huge mens tennis site?

if you'd know how many report posts we get for every atp related thread... lots of people obviously don't want them here either
