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... :sad: I hate to make some fun about people, I find this so unnecessary but why so many people do that ? :help:

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 :help:

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 :sad: sorry :hug: " but why in reality I don't meet as many kind and tolerant people as on the web ?

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".

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


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

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. :zzz:

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.

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.

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.

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 :shrug:

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

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. :tape:

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. :yawn:

wtaworld is pretty cool, but like in life it is spoiled by a certain few.

also in mean girls (love that film) cady at the end learns that calling someone fat dosen't make you thinner, or saying their stupid dosen't make you smarter. some wtaworld poster need to learn this, insulting other players dosen't make your favourite better, also insulting other posters dosen't make your posts any more valid.

Sorry to bump this thread but I am disgusted some people bash others about their private life, I dont think we should take things with ... smile.

Really, even if WTAWORLD is only a board, I still don't get why we have to be mean ?? :confused: and bash others about some stupid things... I mean, if you keep saying all this bullshit, don't you think you would likely to do the same thing in real life ?? Keep being mean with others ?

That's just a question of integrity... some people complain about Justine's hand or Jankovic's coach's behaviour today but they can be worse.

I don't get why Martian Jeza is made fun about his sexuality... Omg I really don't care about your sexual/private life :help: is that really important ?

Internet Anonymity + Internet Audience = Physicological bullying on a extreme level

Martian made the mistake of admitting on the internet he's in his mid 20's and still a virgin no good can come of that

This site isn't that bad I've seen boards where alot more abuse is allowed

Martian_Jeza is one of the biggest homophobes on the site. I can't say I'm deeply touched.

In any case, this is the way things are on the net. Really stop whining. You either take things seriously or you don't, and it's definitely wiser to chose the second option.

^ We do?

Unfortunately, debby, you can point this out continually and of course you are dead right but some people on here just aren't very nice and seem to use this place to vent certain frustrations upon others. It's nothing new to the internet and it's nothing that's going to go away. You have lone trolls, passive aggressive posters, judgmental posters, holier than thou posters, cliques etc. etc. All you can do is turn a blind eye to the bullshit and make of the internet (make of this forum) what you want. Some of the crap posted on here is water off a duck's back to me. I choose to participate in the more civilized, fun or innocuous threads and avoid the bitchy ones unless I feel something needs to be said or I just want to add my two cents and run.

^ completely agreed. and i wanna echo what others said about MTF. its a 1000X worse. on that forum, if you dont spend every waking hour of your life reading up on tennis, you get treated with a ridiculous amount of hostility and condescension.

Oct 5th, 2008, 06:26 PM
i do think this board has a bit of a problem over sexuality, i often get jibes over mine, i don't mind but i sure there are some out there not as secure as i am. i think people just need to be aware that if what their saying was said to them how would they react.
consideration goes a long way. i love wta world though as there are some genuinely amazing people on here, some of them have completely different views to mine but im full of respect for them, and of course we all have tennis as a link wether were, gay, straight, black, white, tall, skinny i think thats kind of cool.

I don't care about all this bullshit of the forum, I mean, when I got bad repp or insulted, I even laugh and I am fine. WTAWORLD is indeed as not terrible as some other boards, fortunately ;) but I was just wondering why some posters lacked of class and respect. I love polemic, to argue with someone (ask to Mashafaaaaan :lol: I am sure he will spot on) but not personal insults on a serious tone. I also make fun of other , not for hurt people, but for fun. That's all.

Yeah, the thread title was misleading, it was more about the way people make fun of others, you see, why do they attack someone on his sexuality? colour of skin... or even deafness (I know that) and whatever. I often wonder what are the reasons to do that.

I fnd it hard to keep up with what goes on around here... but can someome please tell me what people were saying about Martian Jeza? If he's a homophobe... surely people can't be making fun of him being straight? ... So what is it? Is he into beastiality? Does he molest inanimate objects? Is he a sex offender? What's all this about? :shrug:

Having constantly slagged off the WS and Justine and labelling people as glory hunters, it's no surprise people will bash him in return.
Not sure how far the personal bashing went, but that's uncalled for.

Agree with most of the posters that tennisforum is a pretty nice place in comparision to other sports forums. :tape:
