Ah-ha but having spent the twenty-five dollars now you may find that the "psychotic trolls" piss you off much quicker and easier than they did before. Membership does have it's privileges.

Yep, there are supposed to be some perks for premium members. I suppose this is one of them. There's also an extra message board that's available only to us. But nobody ever posts there except for to ask where or what the perks are.

Indeed it is, and certain moderators can stand there and pretend they aren't a factor all they want.

Take a look at this thread. Loads of posts ridiculing our girl, but as soon as I post a rather sarcastic (but perfectly polite) reply to all the crap (see the bottom of page three) the thread gets closed down within minutes.

Google. TF pops up like a beacon of absurdity. As long as it does, and as long as it's tainted by a minority narcissistic fans desperate at their own favorites abject failures, it's an issue.

The tread closure is a good thing imho, deletion would have been better. My thanks go ArturoAce, and your self for the effort.

It has not exactly put things (bashing-wise) to a standstill, but they have calmed down a bit (wonder if the return of WS is also a factor) and threads are not allowed to flourish to quite the same extent.
It's not enough and there's a lot of putrid posting, but something has changed - or so it feels to me.
WS return is a factor because Trolls are getting banned when turning their efforts towards them. However a reduction in muggings on your doorstep isn't the same as a cessation. Onwards...

What's more absurd is that an offensive post might result in a short ban for a "special dynamic member" but they are then allowed to return will all the credits, reputation, and privileges that they had before the temporary ban.

Also, the number of new member who instantly develop an intimate knowledge of the nature of the place and adopt an almost identical offensive stance to a recently departed member is well, 'spiritually enlightening' I never really believed in reincarnation for TF, but how can one doubt it when its so prevalent here? Overjoyed at the revelation of just such reincarnations, and bursting to share the joyous news, I often share my delight with the moderators, but alas they never share my happiness.

Agreed. It's very discouraging to see new posters instantly start posting very negative opinions, not just about Caroline but about anyone. I'm always hopeful that there are a limited number of "bad" posters and optimistic that new posters might change the dynamic a bit but it does not look like that will ever happen.

Sometimes I wish that there was a separate sub forum reserved for negative posting. That way they could have their fun and we would be free to talk about tennis without having every thread devolve into reasons why tennis sucks and all the players are horrible.

No chance. I've been a member here for seven years and it's always been like this. If anything the situation is worse than ever before. Most of the quality posters I remember from the early days have long since gone. Blast From the Past is quality wise by far the best forum of TF, but they of course only talk about retired players.

I dunno if we could try inviting a few of the non-silly-comment-posting Caro fans from GM to post in this subforum as well.

Can something please be done about general messages threads with Caro bashing getting moved in here?

Also, can certain threads in this forum be stickied?

Thanks.

Which threads would you like Stickied? Let me know and I'll see what I can do.

I'll take a look at the threads getting moved here and talk in the Mod Forum about it as well. I'll let you know what we turn up.

I'd like the Danish Delight thread, the live scoring thread, the off topic thread, the photo thread, and the video thread to be stickied.

What about the rest of you all?

Ryan,I agree with Protoss' suggestions for the sticky threads and,in another thread,I suggested that we not receive GM garbage of a gossippy nature any more than we'd want negative threads.Anything with a positive or praising tone would be welcome

Honestly? I don't see the point as there are not many threads in here, the ones you mentioned are the only ones that are constantly used and at the top anyways.

I don't see how it would make much of a difference.

Yeah, 5 threads sticked in a Player Subforum is a little much, considering like Jimmie said they are the most frequented threads and stay near the top anyway. I think I'll look around the other player forums to get an idea of what they're like and see what we can work out.

bruce goose, can I ask what you mean by GM garbage of a gossipy nature?
