It's frankly a ridiculous suggestion. Caroline has already had two terms at number 1 and there is every chance she will have a 3rd.

Pandering to the sort of poster that is prepared to post vile unfounded vitriol, defamation disguised as opinion, and or is here to bolster their ego rather than follow tennis, is absurd.

For me to 'keep' the faith,I'd have to have some in the first place.Actually,I do have a little bit of faith in Sabine: I trust her to back out of subsequent tourneys whenever she has an embarrassing choke or mental meltdown-related loss....I trust her to have injuries that result from poor training habits....I trust her to attribute her WDs to vague illnesses such as 'viral infections' (as she seeks to avoid fines)...and other Sabine classics such as 'split ends','excessive acne conglomeration' or 'fractured eyelashes'.....Oh,and I also trust her to assert that none of these life-threatening conditions will stop her from prancing in front of the camera

Pedophile, Hitler, scrub, fugly, whore, bitch, die...

How is it possible to get more offensive?

Hissy fit? seriously...

Doesn't, is irrelevant to that thread...

Dumb compared to let's say 'Hello Kvitty'? ok... The thread tittle is precise and to the point of purpose, just as the already existing ranking thread is to its purpose.

Having been a poster in this section for a while, I get the sense that 99% of the posters here are more than capable of comprehending the reality of what the abuse is about, and I'm pretty sure they also let out a huge sigh of disappointment at the profound contrast in terms of juvenility and sordidness in some player sections compared to here... Any poster that seriously thinks that insulting a thread name would have any impact on the posters here has serious mental issues. What they say is irrelevant, It's what they are, and any reasonable and rational poster on TF is fully aware of what actions that dictates.

'Hello Kvitty' is a pretty stupid name,and a few of us tried our best to change it...albeit unsuccessfully.By comparing Caro's thread name to THAT one,you're almost admitting guilt.

Listen,I was only trying to help because I've seen how bent out of shape you've gotten--though you're usually a lot more composed than others--over these same trolls whom you supposedly couldn't care less about.If you're now saying that they never bother you,it sounds quite Revisionist but I applaud you on not feeding into their inbred lunacy.

As I said--to ME--it will look downright stupid to have a thread referring to Caroline's former #1 status if she goes a year or two w/o getting back there.'Rankings Thread' just sounds more logical...and would be accurate regardless of Caro's current status........but,hey,whatever you guys want

Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen

Guilt? Pointing out a difference by example is not as to provide a burden of association to my argument, However,

A thread with a tittle precise and to the point of purpose is just that, a well titled thread.

On the other hand a player section with reference to character aimed at the pre-adolescent female market? While I concede that it is probably fully appropriate to the posters therein, it is as you concede, stupid, and perhaps not a coincidence based on the groundswell of juvenile trolls in that section.

Do I look bothered?

Wasps annoy me, mosquitos annoy me, disruptive kids that ruin conversations annoy me, cockroaches annoy you... Do I think or stress about them? No, you swat, poisson, trap, or discipline them. A flick of the wrist is as bothered as I will ever be by an obnoxious troll. Is the Law bothered by them? Apparently it is and increasingly so. Is Admin? increasingly so, Should you be? absolutely. Anyone having to make concessions to, or accommodate disruptive posters of the nature we are talking about should be bothered enough to draw their attention to Admin, Authority, or who ever is responsible for policing the media that they are polluting. It takes as little effort as a flick of the wrist to load up tools, take notes, send, and deal with the situation. It's no more of a bother than removing broken glass or shovelling snow or dog faeces from the pavement, or any other action that accommodates other peoples humanity or safe passage.

Well,I can't honestly comment on how you LOOK thanks to the appropriate anonymity of this forum,but I'm glad it's clear--I'm assuming it IS--that I feel no hostility towards the fans who like the current rankings thread name

I prefer to think that she has just had tremendously bad luck but time will tell. She has had an awful not of injuries so I can't really argue your "points." If she can stay healthy and build some momentum I think she can be a top player and a threat to win a slam (at least at Wimbledon). It would be great if another one of the younger players stepped up and helped to push the old guard out of the way.

s dreamer82, that is a very aggressive new avatar you have. I heartily approve but I suspect that dear Caroline's ears start to burn if she even hears the word "bitches" and she would never be so crass as to actually say it.
