They're just nicknames. Most of the time they're used on here without a substantial meaning behind them anyway.

Report 'em.

We will edit/delete the really bad ones.

I personally don't mind some (I think Vuvurenka is actually funny, for example) but we'll delete almost any of them if enough people complain.

Banning them is kind of pointless, because it would take endless policing and let's face it, on this board people will come up with nicknames faster than we can ban them.

Remember, using the report function merely brings a post to our attention. It doesn't automatically get anyone banned or anything so even if you report a poster you like/agree with 99% of the time you're not really doing anything evil to them. Most of the time we're just going to edit their post.

all of them are from Apoleb of course. this is getting over the line of 'mockery'. surprised none of the mods do anything for that. still remember the post from a mod that says "posts that insult/mock players will be edited" :rolleyes:

yes...names like 'vuvurenka' 'shriekapova' 'screamarenka' 'veenuts' and even 'handin'are bearable. it hardly sounds insulting

but some of them like 'coketina' 'hoezniacki' are borderline disrespectful. again *looks at Apoleb*

Karma Police, I understand your concern, but I think it is really hard to draw the line here. For you, Crapova is clearly insulting and crossing the line, while Pushniacki is funny and okay. People who like Wozniacki and don't think of her as a pusher might think otherwise. For example, what about Shriekpova? It is not an insult, as it is a fact that she shrieks. It is funny for people who think that the obvious is funny.

Also, who are the "victims" of those kind of cheap insults? The players are not, they don't care about some meaningless forum and what goes on there.

I love how the Mashed Potatoes are pretending they are offended by some other nicknames. While in reality, it's only Crapova that is driving them completely mad. :lol:

I agree about Hoesniacki, but it was used like twice, and I didn't come up with it.

Jokiri? Grandma? Stinkis? Seriously? :o Next, we will have a classic like Bagelie banned. What a mess.

Also, who are the "victims" of those kind of cheap insults? The players are not, they don't care about some meaningless forum and what goes on there.

It's the hordes of mindless and humorless 15 year old that roam these boards and treat their "favorite" as some personal issue. Usually, they have nothing to say on this board except spouting random personal insults, but apparently a nickname like "Crapova" now gets them all mad.

Personally I have never used derogatory nicknames, nor would I. It is first grade level. I believe in a person's right to say what they want so my own inclination has never been to ban such names and I personally do not report these immature and quite simply stupid names because I don't see much point in it.

However when I see a poster who uses such names regularly, that poster tells me more about themselves than they do about the players. They tell me that have the maturity and intellect of an average 10 year old. I am very very unlikely to take anything that poster says seriously and will have less than zero respect for such poster. A poster like this should never wonder why I will regularly dish them out red dots or ridicule them at any opportunity that presents itself. Yes, it is true, I have nothing but contempt for such posters. I would like to think others share these views too. And if so it is quite right that these views should be directed straight to the immature trolls who use such nicknames.

It shouldn't matter if they're funny or not. Is profanity against the rules of this forum? If so, then "hoezniacki" and "bitchrena" shouldn't be allowed. Insults and nicknames (about players) are ubiquitous on this forum. They don't bother me at all.

2) Read my post. I never generalized. I just gave my opinion about how the nicknames affected me. I never claimed the world revolved around me.

3) Insulting nicknames can co-exist within discussion (e.g, Crapova's serve is horrible). You just need to stop getting offended by every little thing.

4) Learn how to read and learn how to reason. :wavey:

Edit: Also if insulting nicknames are to banned, then all insults should be banned. That would require extreme moderating and would drastically change the tone of this forum (and would lead to fewer posters). :shrug:

The last word on the subject is just a repeat on what I already said.

If you see a nickname that is offensive, report it. We (the mods) will deal with it.

Sometimes, "dealing with it" will mean editing/deleting it. Sometimes it won't.

Not everyone has the same sense of humor. I personally think it's fun to have nicknames for players, but there is a line. Unfortunately, that line is a little blurry. That's life.
