Red face About WTAWORLD's posters and generally in the world

I don't understand why people are so mean to each other, especially with people who don't need being bashed...

It is not a "peaaaaaace and loooooove" message but simply some posters really need to understand and being more tolerant...

I am deaf at birth at 100 per cent, I have some very good results at school, I can speak very well, I can communicate with people... I just can't get why I am considered as "different" by others... I hate to make some fun about people, I find this so unnecessary but why so many people do that ?

I often talk with Martian Jeza, he is very nice and I can't understand why when he gives his opinion about the Williams sisters, he was bashed about his personal life, I have just found this disgusting

Lots of people seriously need to grow up. Seriously.

Why do you guys reject some people ???? because of their sexuality "choice" ??? deafness, blindness, or whatever ??? This is so ridiculous ! I swear many of people will come there and will say me "I am not like that sorry " but why in reality I don't meet as many kind and tolerant people as on the web ?

Give back 2006 US Open to Justine

Re: About WTAWORLD's posters and generally in the world

Some people are just pleased that they've found a place where they can "mouth off" without getting their ass kicked...

...since they are little meek 'units' in the real world
, this is their place to "roar".

Re: About WTAWORLD's posters and generally in the world

It's just a forum. it's not like it actually matters what people think about you here


As for real life, you can't really do much. Just don't let those things hurt you, it's not really worth it.

Re: About WTAWORLD's posters and generally in the world

Personally, i don't get too offended by others on an online forum and maybe you shouldn't either.

If someone has something negative to say about me or one of my faves, i still sleep at night.

Re: About WTAWORLD's posters and generally in the world

Well, I know people can take things personally and others can get very personal but I've never seen someone insulted because of their sexuality or any disability they have.

People could certainly do with being nicer, more patient and diplomatic...it's not exactly going to kill them to do so.

Re: About WTAWORLD's posters and generally in the world

Oh my god, seriously, I've been on other boards, and this board is by far the most sensitive to any kind of racial/homophobic/ignorant things. Seriously, it is not really seen as cool.
So I'd say this board is actually quite good for, like, the internet. You know?
It's very easy for people to say ignorant things without a face to face encounter.

Re: About WTAWORLD's posters and generally in the world

I don't reject anyone...except unhot people cause well duh

Men när natten är ljus - I ditt sjuttiotalshus
Och du är ånga, spår av ett moln
I en dröm om att fly till någonting nytt

Och du håller så hårt och när längtan blir svår
Så är jag din, din, din att ta med
Att ta ut, att ta in i någonting nytt

Re: About WTAWORLD's posters and generally in the world

This board is classy and conservative compared to the shit that goes on next-door.

Yes there are some HARSH arguments but you ain't seen classless until you've seen MTF.

You can't punch people or tell them where to stick it over the internet.

Firstly - see Dodoboy's post, hes completely correct (and I couldn't be bothered linking it sorry!)

Secondly - Wtaworld is one of the most diverse forums on the entire internet. I'm surprised there isn't alot more arguments really

Thirdly - I find it awesome that your deaf, I could speak all the s*** I want and you'd still be my friend

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

Re: About WTAWORLD's posters and generally in the world

I dont go on any other forums but what i've seen from other websites is that this is probably one of the most sensible/ and whatever forums/websites I have seen. Although I don't think MTF is worse... The rules are so much stricter over there, you'll probably get an infraction for just swearing.

But yeah, this is not bad at all. Which is why I hate it when people start complaining so much. ITs like they want this to be some kind of utopia. That would just be.
