Since Wimbledon, there've been serious, (basically) respectful threads on topics that were instant flame war only six months ago.

Anna Kournikova
Race as a basis for rooting interest
Martina Hingis
Performance enhancing drugs
Monica's weight
Beating the Williams sisters
Nationality as a basis for rooting interest

Now we aren't the Mormom Tabernacle Choir, and there's been some nastiness, even some threads closed. But any of the above topics this winter would have degenerated quickly. This summer, we're somehow managing not to let ourselves get completely derailed by people more interested in hurling insults than having discussion. Well, its been fun for me, anyway.

Everyone, pat yourself on the back once. Don't break your arm though. :)

For me the biggest difference is that recently I finally started to really use "Ignore List" and therefore don't read messages by trolls, it is so much better for a peace of mind..;)

Volcana, have you been a member of Sanex Boards? You remind me one poster from there, named Question Mark, were that you?

Anyways, the boards always got more peaceful during the periods of tennis standstills. Wait for Stanford, and things will instantly heat up.

I noticed it too. Strange, but good.

But it could go back to bad a couple of months from now.

:eek:

Long may it continue :) - although it has to be said that the Monica's weight thread has had a bit of editing one of the moderators which was very welcome believe me :).

ys - I got a stalker off these boards once. Plagued me for months. Called me at work, sent nasty e-mail, etc. Now that I've thrown them off my trail, I'm keeping them off. No info on me that might let anyone track me down again. That includes sex, marital status, old user names, e-mail addresses and phone numbers.

That nonsense I want no more part of.

Yea well someone wasn't so peaceful, SteadyRock was it? God I hated him/her, always telling it like it was! Well I think he's banned now, much to my relief.

That and your admission of a gay experience has me speechless.

RockSteady has been banned?!? :bounce: :bounce:

anyways, the admins actually started to bann annoying & useless people (HH, if you know who i mean), so the boards are quieter, also, the ignore list feature is actually working! :)
