WE DON'T WANT PETTY, STUPID THREADS IN ALL CAPS!

Please. This is childish by OUR standards.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

It not the use but repetition, and it's such a 'tit for tat'.

Guess what, the rankings just resolved. The four best players in the world are in the SF of the first major. Three seperate sizes of four different styles of player. Kim and Venus are more defenders, Serena and Justine, more attackers. So the final is definitely attack vs defense.

This is as close to guaranteed drama as we've had since the 99 US Open.

The players are givng us so much right now. Can't we at least whine and taunt creatively?

I agree.

And the reason people don't like caps is because it's the way you SHOUT in electronic communications and we don't like to be SHOUTED AT FOR A WHOLE THREAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
