Why are certain fans so threatened by Rebecca?

I read a couple of threads last night, with the usual Kim-Serena(#1) and Justine-Serena(RG hand incident) nonsense being discussed and in both those threads, a Williams fan made a debatable comment to which Becca had a perfectly rational reply. However, when these fans would run out of things to say to support their argument, they would end up posting smilies as replies. And then a couple of them would gang up and start dissing her. Since they had nothing constructive to say, they would just post a smilie.

What's up with that? Are you "fans" that threatened by Becca? I personally don't think she's the smartest person on this planet. It's just that on a message board like this, which has so much crap posted on it most of the time, anyone with wit and a decent amount of common sense could be made to look like a genius. Which is exactly what these "fans" make her look like.

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.

rebecca lives because of me.

Madame Oracene Williams could certainly teach the French & Belgian crowds on how to upgrade their respective primitive behaviours during a tennis match.

Very simple, Rebecca tells it as it is, and people don't like hearing the truth if it doesn't agree with their misconceptions, they don't like logic.

Everything you do continues long after you've gone

Because she often refers to bullshit as "bullshit".

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

I have no problem with Rebecca she says what I'm thinking half the time, but I do think that she can come off as sarcastically dismissive/insulting at times. I'm guilty of the same in real life so I can't really say anything.

What's interesting is that none of the "fans" I referred to have responded yet.

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.

you might live to regret saying that. i'm pretty sure rebecca as a pretty high opinion of herself. she is smart i would guess, but i can understand why she would piss people off. i certainly know that i have got in some 'discussions' with her. i don't hold any resentment towards her or anything because she can be pretty nice sometimes and ultimately her comments, although at times quite arrogant, are not half as bad as the stuff many other posters on this board dish out.

She never makes any rational points on this board without having to diss someones else's opinion first...which is annoying....

I know Becca has a high opinion of herself. My original post never suggests that Becca is not smart. Quite the opposite infact. I feel that she is one of the few posters on this board who does NOT make pointless posts. Whenever she tries to engage in a debate with certain posters, and I have mostly seen very rational points from her, they just post a smilie and then a couple more come and they gang up on her. I fail to understand why one person can't debate with her or concede on their own.

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.

The answer: because it tastes nice.
The question: why do some posters like to kiss the ass of rebecca?

everyone is entitled to his own opinion, so why concede to a bitch like her.
