I agree 100%. Many times I'm looking for thread titles of completed matches and can't find them because of ridiculous smart ass topics added to the threads. I wish the MODs would do something about that kind of nonsense.

*Venus*Serena*Kuznetsova*Schiavone*Taylor*Bartoli* *A.Bondarenko*Zheng*Duval*Safarova*Kirilenko*

*Federer*Nadal*Djokovic*Tsonga*Murray*Monfils*Gulb is*Young*Wawrinka*Mirnyi*

Re: thread titles

Amen, I feel like I'm high when I read this forum sometimes. Can't people just make the jokes in their actual posts and leave the thread titles somewhat sane? I just want to see "[Winner] def. [Loser] [Score]", not "Wicked Witch of the Far East opens her bakery and snatches Chokeahontas' wig" or whatever.

Re: thread titles

I agree. Sometimes I would like to visit shortly here for results and check some comments and difficult to find the appropriate thread. I don't mind when the smart names are used in the post itself.

Re: thread titles

Agreed, but not as bad as doubles threads

Re: thread titles

But I agree. It's gotten ridiculous.

Re: thread titles

It also just kills off any vaguely amusing joke on the forum. Like NA-MUG's bird thread which was a genuinely hilarious idea, only now we're going to have to sit through those nicknames being put through the wringer so the joke isn't funny any more.

Re: thread titles

Some are funny And you can't tell anyone to stop trying to be funny... Who knows, one of these days maybe Na-Mug will make us laugh for all the right reasons.
