Question Is "tard" an acceptable term in this forum?

Just wanted to clarify this, members have no problem throwing this term around to insult each other. Thanks.

She has one, but has 12 years left in her, with 9/10 years of heavy slam winning potential. She could end up with 22 grand slams easily.

I'm unsure about TF but it isn't IMO. It's just a no go area. People suffer with such issues and throwing the term around is pathetic and insensitive.

This like people need to leave the insults behind, it's only tennis

However if you have to resort to petty insults which also affects a group of individuals as well you not only lost whatever argument you were in but you're a pretty ugly person inside and out.

I don't think it is, and I report it whenever I see it, tends to be ignored in some player forums though.

Anything is accepted on this forum, no one will ever take any action... Especially if you're a Sharapova fan.

No it's not. Please report and a moderator/admin will remove/edit posts containing the term.

It wouldn't be as any other terms shouldn't be allowed too.

Though, some posters are allowed to spew different words in this board and no one does anything, not even deletes their messages. While other's messages are instantly deleted.

There is much bias in this board.

I for one reported many messages and they are still there. Some users are favoured and don't tell me it's not true.

There is no bias - We can't review every post in the forum which is why we have a report button.

I will review reported posts and remove any that are still visible
