I didn't have any questions, just one point/suggestion: keep Renastar out of your efforts to illustrate the unfair treatment you feel Serena's fanbase is receiving from the mods. He is an extremely unsavory individual and deserves whatever treatment they have dished out to him. There must surely be examples of threads started by decent Serena fans that can can serve your purposes better.
Let me state my case another way...
When well known Serena and/or Serena fan haters post a Serena results thread...along with disparaging and unnecessary, rude, or offensive thread title remarks, and there are also several other results threads started by non
-Haters, the mods almost always selects the crude, rude, hater threads, with the offensive titles. WHY!?
Maybe you also join us in inquiring of the leadership why they do this. Many Serena fans have already inquired. Even sent lengthy PMs.
I'm not familiar with Renastar. I'm not even sure what Renastar's offense was or whether he/she is even a true Serena fan. I know for a fact that there are psuedo-Serena fans on this board, and have had confrontations with some already. And just like the offensive Serena haters, I have most of them on IGNORE
Look, there are many
posters here who regularly breaks the rules, and who are allowed to constantly do so. Until all hell breaks loss and the leadership gets enough of the complaints, only then is action taken. WHY
let it get that far when there are established zero-tolerance policies/rules... is my question!?
My last point is simple: Several people commenting on Renastar's threads made the suggestion that he was a "typical Serena fan". The implication being that his behaviour is what one may expect from other Serena fans such as yourself. I found that offensive to Serena's fanbase as a whole, including you. Whatever beef I may have had with you in the past, you strike me as an essentially decent guy.
Thank you for the explanation. And I appreciate the logic and kind words. I honestly do.
Understand that there is a small, though unwarranted, war being waged between Serena haters and Serena fans that we Serena fans would like to see ended. This war (my own personal description) is y-e-a-r-s old. It is distracting, tiring, ridiculous, illogical, and unnecessary. It exponentially increases the length of a Serena threads to a ridiculous number of pages and is regularly allowed to persist by the leadership of this forum.
is what infuriates me and my fellow Serena fans. And it isn't just the Serena fans who are tired of this. I'm sure that you'd also like to see the constant bickering ended. Am I right?
Like you, though I agree that we do not always agree on everything, I still read your posts and would never place a poster like yourself on ignore.
Hell, many of your posts make sense to me...is perceived from a different perspective.
You don't even come close to the definition of a troll, and neither do you post baited threads or replies, racist responses, regularly attack other posters, etc...
All I and other Serena fans are asking the leadership here to do is to simply abide by there own set of rules and policies and penalize the offenders.
Adhere to that publicized zero-tolerance declaration.
The leadership knows
who these offending posters are because these posters are regularly pointed out through the "Report Post"
If I was banned because I reciprocated against two posters who constantly attacked and baited me in the past, then surely posters who regularly post offensively should be subject to the same penalties.
