My antiquated,Pac Man-era computer has difficulty with some of those video files, so would you care to share what the announcement was??Was it what our favorite marica posted right after YOUR post?A simple 'game,set,match'?

They showed a video of the Liu match finish but it was overdubbed with GSM Wosniacki.

Kindly apologise to the poster in the main Caro thread and cut the derogatory Ana references in that thread as agreed when this thread was created.

Bruce,You know the sentiment in this section, and even if it has been diluted by new arrivals and existing posters becoming prematurely Alf Garnettised, undermining that origional collective sentiment reduces our entitlement to have troublemakers removed.

Thanks.

Honestly, I was only casting aspersions on Sven Groeneveld and his level of professional reliability. Ana was merely incidental because she's a player who has had a previous connection with Sven and APDP.Other than calling Sven a jerk-off, nothing about my post was in the realm of opinion. It's a FACT that Groeneveld provided the hook-up for Ana with her sleazy playboy partners, and my condemnation was NOT the choices that Ana made--which were irrelevant to the topic--but the unprofessional, careless disregard that Groeneveld showed for his player's welfare...which is,potentially, VERY relevant to Caro's future.

However, you've made such a polite request that I can't find it within me to turn you down......I'll go back and delete the original post as you've asked....and then I'm going to bed

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

I'm not sure if this makes me a "stalker" but I was wondering what happened to Chrissie-fan so I did a search of his recent posts and found these two posts explaining why he hasn't been around lately:
http://www.tennisforum.com/showpost....postcount=4939

http://www.tennisforum.com/showpost....postcount=4949

I thought that others might be wondering what happened to him so I decided to post these here. Kind of a bummer, eh? He was one of the nicer posters on TF and we really need people like him to balance out the a-holes like me.

Chrissie-fan, if you are reading this I hope that you realise that you are one of the more popular posters here and that you will be missed. I don't think I ever witnessed you having any kind of arguments or altercations with anyone here, that is quite an achievement for this site!

Chrissie-fan, as DIAH said, you'll be missed, you are one of the classiest posters not only on Caro's forum but on this whole crazy board called TennisForum! If there would be more posters like you this place wouldn't be such a mess!
Life can be a bitch, stay strong! Wish you all the best!

Gaston still reads this forum from time to time even though he has temporarily stopped posting here.I've already read the posts that 'MIAH' linked because Gaston included them in a PM he sent me a little while ago.Obviously,he's going thru some struggles that would challenge ANYone's spirit; however,I believe that he has more strength at his disposal than he realizes and that he will manage, somehow, to overcome.......Anyway, for those of you who want to wish him well, be assured that he will most likely read and appreciate those messages

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

Yeah, I still regularly read some of the posts. Sometimes I'm tempted to post something here which wouldn't be a problem in itself, but I fear that if I start doing that I'll be back to where I was in no time. I'll probably get back to participating like I used to do at some point, but for now I won't, or I'll limit my participation to the occassional comment every now and then.

The TF thing that brought all this about was something that would have gotten nothing more than a shrug of the shoulders from me in the past. But I guess that with all the other BS that is going on at the moment in my life I'm much more sensitive to that sort of stuff right now. I was furious when I saw one of the replies to one of my posts. I was so angry that I started to randomly delete hundreds of my own posts. After a couple of hours I started thinking, "wait a minute. Wtf are you doing? If you get that upset over something so insignificant it's best to stop posting because this is just not healthy or even just sane bahavior." I was shocked by my own reaction. So my self imposed ban is an act of self-protection really. But as Arnie would say, "I'll be back" - but I don't know when yet. In the meantime I'll keep reading the player forums to keep myself informed about what my girls are up to, and perhaps I'll (very) occasionally add a comment of my own.

On a personal level there's at least some positive news in that the doc has said that it's likely that my niece will make a full recovery. The cancer was discovered at a very early stage and her chances of recovery are 90% or more. That has lifted my spirits a bit and hopefully it's a sign that my luck will start to turn.

Thanks for all the nice comments and words of support, I appreciate it.

PS: Wimbledon 2013 - the weirdest start to a GS tournament ever. for Caroline. The tennis gods really won't give her a break. I'm now rooting for Li and Radwanska even though it's almost inevitable that Serena will win it. I was also impressed with Laura Robson's match against Kirilenko. Much as TF is always arguing that she's just hype I admit that I'm a believer. You don't beat all the top players she's beaten when you're not even twenty if you're just hype. She's the real deal in my opinion. I'm not going to predict her winning slams just yet, but she's a future YEC player at least.

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

Recall reading that vultures supposedly have an acidic digestive system so strong that it can fight off potential infections from the roadkill they eat.In that same vein, if a piece of bread gets slightly moldy, I can still break it into pieces and throw it to the pigeons,right?? Or is it harmful for the birds,too?

So do we have any artists in the house that can create an image of a cyborg Caro?

It not just the acid, it's the digestif enzymes, bacterial soup, and immune system as a whole that dictate resistance, a quality we used to share but not so much anymore due to our evolved diets.

In direct answer to your question re mould. No. unless you are aware of the exact species of mould, then it is not safe to assume that it is harmless. While many moulds are indeed harmless, others produce powerful toxins upon death that no amount of digestive ability can counter (grain mould and rice mould being occasionally particularly nasty). Further, unless its relatively low gluten and wholegrain bread, it's not particularly beneficial to birds even when fresh. Gluten (such as found in strong white flour) drains your energy levels even if you don't have allergy issues with it.

Just photoshop here into a Team Sky Cycling Jersey. That should get you pretty close.

@Chrissie-fan

Focus on what's good for you for a while... Take care of yourself first, show a more deserving employer the substantial asset that you undoubtedly are, and come back stronger. Good Luck with it all...
