Re: Yes, another GM rant.

If you are referring to the dark bold ones, deal with it those are in GM for most matches not named Williams too.

If you have problems either report them or get the fuck over it and ignore them

Re: Yes, another GM rant.

The ones I am most upset about are;


Once Serena retires...
Darn, I missed Venus match today
Serena's level against Dementieva won't cut it against Venus.


The first two are ridiculous. The third is not needed either, it's an opinion that should go in the WWW? Thread. I just don't get why people start threads sometimes, and I've reported atleast 1/2 dozen threads in the past 2-3 days and nothing ever happens. I wish they'd stop spreading that bullshit.

'Just report it, it's the best way to go about it'.

Fuck off.




STFU Casey.

Re: Yes, another GM rant.

Reporting still is the best way. Looking at your recent reports, most of them have resulted in either deletion or closing of a thread. Reporting something does not automatically mean you get your way though.

In general, during a Grand Slam GM will be very crowded. That is the way it is unfortunately. In some cases you might not like a topic, but others will. Threads that are not in accordance with the rules will be deleted or closed when we see him or are brought to our attention.

Re: Yes, another GM rant.

You better thank the GM mods who have dealt with most of your reports.

Oh yes, I'm very gratituous.



This was more a call for users to think before pressing the 'New Thread' button, not a go at our amazing moderators.

Re: Yes, another GM rant.

If you don't like them the don't enter them? The same would happen if it was a Safina-Dementieva final or anything else. It's ALWAYS gonna happen and I know for sure that if it was "Darn, I missed the Dementieva match" and Elena had gotten through then you wouldn't be making this thread.

I don't see the point of reporting threads apart from if it was a thread like "Serena is a monkey, Jelena is a horseface", seriously, it's such a waste of time... It's only a forum after all. And I dont mean just you Sam, I just mean people in general, like I see the same from WS fans as well - always reporting threads and getting others to report them in PMs and some of the threads aren't even that bad at all. I just think that people need to chill, if you dont like that thread then just don't enter it and leave it alone...

Re: Yes, another GM rant.

There were only two women's matches in the past two days, so naturally most all of the recent threads will concern those four women and those two matches. Do you want to discuss 50K Boston result threads or something?

If you care so much, then make some more threads that you think are more worth your time.

Re: Yes, another GM rant.

i agree there are some useless threads in GM, the darn i missed the venus match one is pathetic. if you miss the match get over it or post in the venus forum to see if anyone recorded it.

some people really do make threads for the sake of it. all the safina/ranking related ones are the same stuff rehashed in every thread.

maybe when a mod locks or moves a thread from GM they could just pm the thread starter and say the thread must be related to tennis and not be a thread about what a singular player is doing, because that should be in player forums.
