This is GENERAL messages, not PSYCHIC messages!

Good God, I've never seen so many professional seers, psuedo-psychics, and self-proclaimed clairvoyants in my life! Can we declare a moratorium on all of these worthless "prediction" threads?



Stop saying you know what will happen at the Australian Open!

No one really knows what round Serena will come up against a player playing the match of her life, what round Mauresmo will eat yet another humilating bagel, what round Clijsters will be whipping out her MRIs, what player Jankovic will have a mental breakdown against, or how many fingers Yuri will be holding up during Maria's guaranteed semifinal!

I can "sense" that some cranky replies will be coming in the future!

Re: This is GENERAL messages, not PSYCHIC messages!

I agree on the "who will Serena play in R1" thread because that's just silly but really i think vogus was just stating his opinion that overplaying before a slam is not a good idea - i don't think he predicted who would beat her or anything so that's fine. much worse threads on this board!

Re: This is GENERAL messages, not PSYCHIC messages!

The prediciton threads are a bit daft if you take them seriously.
Otherwise they are an interesting way of gaining peoples opinions of players current strengths and weaknesses and they are a delightful change from the ususal "who has the best outfit", "who is the prettiest if you are blindfolded", dokic, stevenson and kornballikova threads

Re: This is GENERAL messages, not PSYCHIC messages!

Perhaps the definition of general is too general. But i will admit it is intriguing who serena will play in rd 1 coz she could draw maria. Just as we waited in anticipation to see who hingis was going to draw last year when she came back and was unseeded.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Re: This is GENERAL messages, not PSYCHIC messages!

I don't have a problem in the prediction threads because I love to know other people's opinion.

And if there are no these type of threads, then the GM threads will only consist of fashion/beauty threads and/or "who beat who in which scoreline" threads.

The prediction threads are refreshing and fun to read (as compared to the above threads).
