Then simply ignore them Masaka? i don't see why you and others deem it necessary to continually post defensive comments, it clearly has no effect on them and it's just wasting your own time.

The reason I react is there is an old adage that "silence means assent". If somebody stands by when somebody else does or says something unpleasant or unkind against another person, (without good reason),  and doesn't speak out, then they could be deemed to be agreeing with that comment. I would then in my own eyes be as guilty as those I condemn.  I am not prepared to do that. It goes against every thing I believe in and stand for.

Fair comment, Masaka - but this is an internet forum?

I don't think that makes any difference, or it doesn't to me.  Standing up against that sort of thing is something I have done all my life, be it the school playgrounds of my childhood, university or in the working world.

I do however strongly suspect that some of the cretins would not be so brave as to come out with the crap they do away from the anonymity of an Internet forum. Most bullies are cowards at heart, and there are several on here.

Yes - I agree re the bullies on here, and they really are beginning to stand out, so I suppose you are right to feel strongly, but they will continue here, because they can.  I'm happy to ignore them and chat with those more like minded.

I do try to, but when I am overtired I lose the plot a bit. Some of the comments this morning were so foul and over the top,  that for the reasons outlined I wasn't prepared to ignore them. We are not talking about some of the comments made in the heat of the moment. We are talking about those few people who wait for Murray to be a bit vulnerable and then almost wet themselves in their desperation to get their digs and vile comments out.

Totally agree, Masaka.  This is why I stay away from match threads.  It's pointless challenging irrational people who have a twisted agenda.

Do you notice masaka how some of them quickly disappear straight after match I.E rob 92 and backhand slice? Its as if theyve done their job spreading muck all over the match thread.. they dont even hang about to explain their actions.

I have, I have also noticed how Boogers invariable appears these days on the match threads of matches that Murray is likely to have difficulty with. We see less of him if Murray is likely to win easily.

I do think the trolling seems to be getting worse.

I think I have quoted that before. I would agree with you completely.

That is so true, but alas trolls just feed off responses and get bigger and bigger the more one responds.
