Can you please do something about the Trolls?

There's been a bunch people who are doing Troll like
actions on this message board and ruining it. They're taking it
down the toilet with rude slurs, insults just to bait other
geniune tennis fans to start fights and raise it to a
very un-healthy, un-entertaining level of spite. The type
of posts that claim to "hate player XXX because she looks
ugly as f*ck" is not what I call good posting. It's message
board terrorism IMHO.

What bugs me is that they have been reposting using
at times 3 different names?

Can you please moderate these people a bit more? The
GM thread is an absolute shit pile now.

Let's not let this go the way of the Sanex web board.
It's unfair to the majority who really do enjoy chatting about

Thanks. GHT.

Great post

It is one of the reasons why I don't post so much here anymore, this full of posters wanting to start fights and that probably don't know nothing about tennis but enjoy creating confusion and filling the General Messages forum with threads of absolutely no value.

I agree with you! Also, FraziersFan and Jochiam posted pointless threads

How about placing a limit in the number of threads a poster could create per day/week? Then, the trolls will be really careful on what type of threads they create.

Or, better yet, make this limit dependent on the reputation of the poster. I know reps are not really fair but most of the bad guys have the red dots.
