Perhaps there should be a non-moderated forum...

... for all the Graf vs Seles debates, bashing threads like "Justine cheats all the time", "Williams are arrogant and bad for tennis", "Sharapova is a fluke" etc. So the people who get off on repeating the same things 67687699879687 times could finally have their fun without bothering the rest of us. And of course, threads like those and off-topic discussion in otherwise normal threads would immediately get deleted in GM. I think it would be a good idea, though I realize it's not happening,

Joana, I personally like the idea, though as Car Key Boi once argued, ppl "come here to fight", and he may have been right. (Board co-founder Poe "kind of agreed" with him re. sports boards in general, BTW). As you're the very model of tolerance re. the recent decade of trouble in your homeland I hope they listen 2U, though.

For the board's legal protection, the mods/admins would probably have to delete posts threatening ppl, though. And trolling is different (maybe err "deserving" of its own forum) as those threads are often totally fake. IMO, the Fight Forum Joana suggested ought 2B reserved for threads like "Elena Dementieva is a disgrace to Russian tennis".

yeah. the hardest part to help him is that he doesn't even know he's a bit wrong.

The trolls would still post in GM, because they want to encourage stupidity, and non-trolls who just don't know any better would still post crap because they don't realize that their shit stinks, too.

But I fell your pain and I'm glad you got that off your chest

Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.
