If a majority feel I'm being a dictator on this I'll back off, but as long as I'm a mod here this small corner of the board won't become a playpen for kids like GM. ....
Yes, Rollo, that's a good idea!
Too much free speech only leads to chaos. I'm glad that we'll have a mod who decides what is "petty" for us. So I don't have to choose for myself whether I read those post or not. And if a majority backs you, you are no way a "dictator"!
But could you tell us what will be allowed in the future?
1) Is it OK to separate "first-tier" and "second-tier" greats?
2) If so, is it OK to classify Monica Seles as a "second-tier great"?
3) If no, where may I draw the line between a "second-tier" and a "first-tier" great?
4) Can I still point out that Seles never won in Wimbledon?
5) Or at least that she was beaten like a drum by Graf there in 92?
6) Or is "beaten like a drum" not OK?
7) Is calling Graf's performance in 90/92 a "slump" a politically incorrect denigration of another player?
8) Is it still allowed to name Robert1 "dumbo" in a Graf/Seles fight? Or at least when we discuss other topics?
9) Is citing stats still OK? When are numbers denigrating player's achievements (eg. "Seles won no slam post-Jan96")?
10) May I still wear my Steffi Graf T-shirt when posting? What about my screen saver? If that is forbidden how to you monitor that?
