Dear all Ladies and Gentlemen,

Last 5 days or so have witnessed a shocking exponential rise in hatred, both on fanbase level and personal level at our beloved talk tennis forum, TTW.

While I do appreciate the mods' efforts to take down what was some of the worst content on ttw, they were a bit too late. And even as of now, Whatever thread one may scroll through, its filled with full of hatred, insults and cusswords towards the greatest legends of the tennis world, including but not limited to Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Pete Sampras and many more.

while I do acknowledge that the trolling is nothing new for some of the forum's posters, the scale at which it has happened in last 5 days, is strikingly awful and a nightmare. Djokovic fans are attacking Federer/Nadal fans and the swiss/spanish legends; Nadal fans are attacking Djokovic/Federer fans & the Serbian/swiss superstars; Federer fans are attacking Nadal/Djokovic fans and the Spanish/Serbian greats; on a scale that is really gigantic.

Hereby, I, rafa4lifeever or Carl Thompson, humbly request all of you to stop doing this. Please have some respect towards other fellow talk tennis members, the forum TTW itself and especially the sport of tennis's greatest legends Roger, Rafa, Nole and Pete. This doesn't befit us.

That said, I bid goodnight to all of you. I hope to wake up and see a better TTW, I also hope that mods let this request of mine floating around on the forum, and not delete it.

At the end of the day it’s just tennis, we come here to talk about people we like watching, and then discuss the latest news. No reason to get overly upset over any specific thing, and besides...

This is a message I approve of, but I only see as futile when one of the very posters who's part of the problem unironically posts here as if he isn't part of the problem. There's little point trying to change the mindsets of so many people I don't even know when it's not going to make any difference to my life.

Jerry. Come on, man. See, that's the difference between us. You think we're fighting. I think we're talking. Unless you love everybody, you can't sell anybody.
 
Haha that's a good point, just with his nickname alone he is inciting violence, then complaining about it. Yeah he caused it.
Yeah I wouldn't go that far... but it's usually fanatics that think the problem is the other fanatics. OP needs to take the first step in deescalating whatever he thinks it's going on...

I agree, I was exaggerating to be funny, but you had a great point. Yeah, obviously he is fanatic if he has fanatical name. Same with people with Djokogoat or something like Fedrulz. Just by nickname you see their bias and can't trust their credibility.

Not to mention, it's a bit childish too.

And by starting this thread you give the trolls something they desperately crave: attention.

In fairness, you have been repeatedly advised to liberally use the ignore feature. Then much of the juvenile idiocy is avoided.

Which is funny, the guy doesn't seem to understand he is part of the problem too.

speaking of deleting threads, my thread "rafa's ultimate quest: defeating djoker at the ao" which is a lot better than threads like "fed hate out of control", "why this site diss fraud" etc. got deleted for no reason.........like backhandDTL said we might as well call this fedrwarehouse.........i don't have time to deal with stupid moderation.........see you all, i am off for a good amount of time and possibly never return........

I've made my skin really thick over the years. No kind of trolling, personal insults, Fed insults can unsettle me. Op better learn how to make his skin thick like a Buffalo.

people acting like the ignore fucntion is the only way out even though I’m active on other forums that aren’t even half as toxic as this one. they’re very civil actually and the trolls that are here would have been banned there a long time ago.

the ignor button just makes more mess, you have people who aren’t on your ignore replying to invisible posts from people you did put on ignore. it’s chaos

Well said - you must of known the kind of response this would receive but you posted what you thought was right and fair play to you for that.

OP should give the example by changing his ridiculously fanatic username.

You're invited to check my post history, sir. I treat every legend and ttw poster extremely respectfully.
Username is just a way to set up an account and its a random thing that appeared in my mind. Good name does not indicate a good person and that goes vice versa too.

That's the thing, ma'am. Ignoring or putting on block list isn't really my way, I wish to make the world a better place and try to give every bit of my effort into it. Trust me, it has worked wonderfully in the circles around me, and I have been able to solve a number of issues between people. (Not that I'm boasting about it, but probably almighty has provided me that skill)

Sure, sure... fanatics are never wrong, it's always the others...
