I will post name but later!!!:wavey:

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 07:33 PM
bobie, I wanted to name myself bobbie but forgot the b. I was already glad to be on after trying for two weeks anyway

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 07:35 PM
I miss that board sure there is worldcrossing but it's not the same without the long lost sisters even when they insulted my fav everyday;) :p

anton
Sep 11th, 2002, 07:37 PM
well cnnsi was back from 1997 I think. there were some major battles there with hingis and venus fans calling each other all kinds of names. and hate mailing each other. everybody actually ended up getting banned 2 or 3 times so we had lots of names.
2 I used were "gatsby" and "sixlove"

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 07:37 PM
and david-r I could never tease him with the fact that Serena won the french :p

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 07:39 PM
I got haitmail from toolphia and robert1's.

of course about steffi!

anton
Sep 11th, 2002, 07:42 PM
OMG! dont mention David R (fro germany?) he had a huge stalking cruch on hingis and would write these elaborate Hingis dedication stories and also would write little stories about us to belittle us and try to make us feel bad about ourselves. He finally got banned and it was SO funny

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 07:42 PM
I remember sixlove!

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 07:45 PM
david-r was not banned because I spoke him two days before it crashed and he still claimed serena would not win the french:p
I don't think he even was a Martina fan, I think he rather detested her!

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 07:47 PM
but then he switched a lot because he also claimed to be a steffi fan but kept telling why she was not great
he disliked all players I liked!

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 07:48 PM
toolphia was from germany and she claimed to be a monica fan but all she did was saying Steffi, da forehand and eternity suck!

anton
Sep 11th, 2002, 07:49 PM
maybe we are talking about 2 diff people. I think the person im talking about was named David Hamilton and he is a writer in Germany and he was so mean and a Hitler-type attitude. People were afraid to say anything against Hingis bc he would write a story about you and put you down and post it on CNNSI.

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 07:50 PM
that was probarly before 2000 then? I only entered at the start of that year

anton
Sep 11th, 2002, 07:53 PM
yea before 2000 i think. i left that board. do you remember sunny ray. he is one of the reasons i left. he would camp out in the venus board and write all negative things about her and call her "money for nothing williams" and stuff. i miss venus fans like m rach and jeffery

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 07:57 PM
yeah I do since he was a devoted anna fan and I used to post on her fanzone a lot
a lot of cnn posters went to a new forum on worldcrossing but it doesn't work right now either:(

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 07:58 PM
http://www.worldcrossing.com/WebX?13@61.YzI0c0ybVXg^13@.eef7f13

here is the link but it's down now too:(

anton
Sep 11th, 2002, 08:02 PM
ok. some others are some people from australia that were nice. some of them even mailed me some articles from their local newspaper. I think their names were kate torrens and daniel

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 08:05 PM
kate was a steffi fan but totally turned around when she came together with andre. do you mean her?

anton
Sep 11th, 2002, 08:08 PM
yea kate lives in oz i think and provided all the sydney early round scores.

anton
Sep 11th, 2002, 08:09 PM
we followed the 1998 Venus d. Hingis second round live on cnnsi and kate gave us scores and detailed reports like when venus gets injured and cries in the second set. that match is awsome. i have it on tape. i think that and steffi-gaby wimbledon are my favs.

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 08:11 PM
yeah she was from australia and I heard she was the number 1 defender of steffi together with rave against the likes of dzenana(who I like btw) and sam nas(aka selesrules)!

anton
Sep 11th, 2002, 08:15 PM
selesrule really gets on my nerves :rolleyes:

also i remember after the 97 us open the hingis fans were mad bc venus made the SI cover, not Hingis even tough hingis won the final 6-0, 6-4.
the cover line was something like:
venus williams shakes up tennis

with VENUS ENVY in big lettes.

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 08:17 PM
there were not so much posters in 97 right?
I know tomo was, bashing andre of course!

anton
Sep 11th, 2002, 08:22 PM
actually it was a lot of people there in 97 but not too many williams fans. they would make fun of us. they thought lucic and anna would be the best.


when serena turned pro and she played in chicago and was beating everybody the board was on fire. everybody wanted to see her reuslts live. she beat monica and mary I think. everybody was talking about her but nobody had seen her play.

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 08:25 PM
serena and venus really showed them :cool:

anton
Sep 11th, 2002, 08:28 PM
yea. there was a lot of racism against venus and serena and the admins would always complain that they had to babysite us so i think that is one reason the site shut down.

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 08:32 PM
no it had to with cnn because they also trow the other sites(about tv and political) down.

the serena zone was very friendly in the last years. the only thread that was crap was the monica zone.
and they(the monica fans) always said it was our fault but they always started and we came to defend of course and then there was a fight again for two weeks. it was sure a kindergarten board!

anton
Sep 11th, 2002, 08:37 PM
ok. also cnnsi got mad bc everybody talked about non-tennis stuff and they wanted only tennis talk. at least when i was there that was their attitude.

darren cahill
Sep 11th, 2002, 08:40 PM
I was ClayW. Not sure if you two remember me. I didnt post much after Steffis thread was closed. but i did post on Patrick Rafters and once the German thread...had some fun times on there.

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 08:41 PM
yeah non tennis stuf got banned because people posted porno on the venus and anna thread!

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 08:46 PM
clay I remember you and the german tennisthread! it was fun there.
when steffi's thread was closed, I tried to get it back but it never worked:(

darren cahill
Sep 11th, 2002, 08:47 PM
irma, were you bobie? Or midnight red? If you are, then surely you recall all the TOmmy Haas/feet conversations? LOL :o

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 08:56 PM
I was bobie, midnight red stopped posting when she started to study medicine
and yeah I remember that. Heidi was still very much involved in the boards too that time and we were always waiting till she gave us information about steffi and denied some rumour wich were in the papers!

anton
Sep 11th, 2002, 09:28 PM
one fun thing was SF1's Pick Contest! remember that!?

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 09:35 PM
yeah I was always last when I played :p

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 09:35 PM
they still do it on wc but I am to lazy to study the draw

Justin
Sep 11th, 2002, 09:53 PM
I'll be damned. gatsby and sixlove were one and the same.

CNN/SI posters with problems: Anika, DaForehand, Sam_Nas, HeavyBlow, Ryles, luvtennis, Tomo, Alion, 'nthralled, Mountainchick, Nathaniel Alfonso, Mrs. Krispy Kreme, fp262, A Clear Day etc.

CNN/SI posters who were OK: Barbara Ann, Arishtat, TommyT, Don G, Vince, jks, Kathy Roberts, SF1, Steph, Heron5, Chrissy, Seles2000.

In all, that place was nasty-- but some of TroyTron's Monica stories were downright laugh-riots, and the whole Lleyton/Burger Boy thing was hysterical. Bobie and ClayW, we had a few good fights (esp. with you bobie). Any clue who I am?

darren cahill
Sep 11th, 2002, 09:57 PM
No, I dont have a clue as I dont recall too many of the peoples names....but i do remember Troy Trons stories, absolute, beyond belief hysterical. Loved those fake International Press articles. Do you remember the one about Lindsay Davenport crashing her Harley through a bar window? and the time amanda coezter was thrown about like a football?

SF1 was great. Loved him. And barbara Ann too....i lost her email address. I have no idea who you are...give me another hint..

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:01 PM
I guess a monica fan! not toolphia because they were women and hated america, not sam nas since he is selesrules.
helterskelter maybe?

darren cahill
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:03 PM
oh gosh, samnas forgot that one. Yep, thats my guess. Not one of my fave people! LOL. oh well.. I wouldnt have guess that though cause your spelling is better on here! Just joking. Arishtat was great...was he the one who did the Navratilova quizzes? i loved those

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:03 PM
a lot of monica fans went to jose's board, I sometimes post there too but not since wimbledon

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:04 PM
jks? but then we still meet on the other board:p

darren cahill
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:07 PM
irma, how do you remember all those names? I pretty much like everyone...all the Rafter fans were great like Doug, I liked Kate and Rave and Scotty...i dont even remember "fights" with anyone really. Maybe just samnas and those were just goofy Monica things..like laughing at a story Troy wrote or something.. thats all..

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:10 PM
I was serious addicted :eek:
and of course some like jks went over to the other board so I still talk to them.
and kate is a person who I will never forget since there was huge fight with her when the new steffi board was launched and then she and rave made a revenge board!

darren cahill
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:11 PM
Justin, I just re-read your post and saw you included samnas in your post so i guess thats not you. then i have NO idea....HINTS HINTS please!

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:12 PM
no samnas is selesrules. I am 100% sure about that

darren cahill
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:13 PM
irma what boards are you talking about? Where did Rave and kate make new threads? that world crossing thing? Kate did over-do the Steffi/Andre thingy. which i could never understand cause who really cares? I mean its not my problem. and hey, what is steffi supposed to do? Stay with someone she doesnt care for anymore just to look good? I dont care if she goes out with Andre, Stubbsy or a goat, just be happy.

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:14 PM
yeah on worldcrossing

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:15 PM
I found it all a little exaggerated too

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:16 PM
http://www.worldcrossing.com/WebX?13@214.Lpe2etEAaEU.46@.ee9c237

here is the link to the steffi board but there is not much action these days

darren cahill
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:17 PM
irma, most of the people Justin mentioned not liking, i actually liked quite a bit. Most of all MC. loved her. I wasnt crazy about the world crossing site though. Jose seemed a bit bossy and caused some personal problems with a friend of mine

you know what irma, i think i know who it is now. At first I wasnt so sure cause i was thinking i hardly ever chatted with the guys...there was only 1 or 2 and it just clicked. I'm not gonna say who it is until he says it first to see if i'm right?

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:19 PM
okee
yeah I like mc too, she is a good moderator for worldtennis!

darren cahill
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:19 PM
yeah, I'm pretty sure now after reading his list of people he liked who it is....i knew who he clicked with!

wild cat was cool too.

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:22 PM
the only person I serious had problems with was 'n thralled because I found him to contradicting. I mean one day he trew bibletextes over me and the next day he said awful stuf about other players.
That's was something I could not understand!

Justin
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:22 PM
Sam_Nas was Monicamania. I don't think he is Selesrules.

Clay, we got into it once on the Monica thread so I was forced to expose you on the mary thread. But, I am so much kinder and gentler these days. :)

I missed Troy's Lindsay/biker bar story. Sounds like a good one. The Richard Williams/Samantha Stevenson press conference was classic, the Monica/Aborigines was good and the Sam_Nas interview was well done.

darren cahill
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:26 PM
yeah, Justin, thats who i figured it was. No problems at all anymore. And as for 'exposing' me on the Mary board, it could have been a couple situations cause i think something like that happened a few times. I dont recall all this stuff as easily as you guys seem too. its in one ear and out the other, i dont retain this stuff too well

Justin
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:27 PM
Clay- c'mon. say it.

Irma- 'nthralled was Alion

darren cahill
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:29 PM
gosh, now i'm not so sure, cause i only remember one or 2 times someone having a go at me one marys board. one person (and not sure who) re-posted a comment of mine that i posted on Monicas board onto Marys site, why, i dont know cause it didnt have anything to do with mary...is that the "exposure"? Cause i kinda recall that, but it didnt seem all that mind blowing cause like only 3 people posted on there anyways

Justin
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:30 PM
Damn- guess your memory is not too shabby, clay. ;)

As long as we are reminiscing, Jena was one of my faves and I always wanted to kick Chris Ip's ass. He was so irritating with his incessant Hingis bashing.

darren cahill
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:31 PM
Keith?

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:32 PM
You are not keith right? (I mean he is chris' enemy 1)
or jks afterall

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:32 PM
or kpd

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:33 PM
ali? but then he posted her under a different name

darren cahill
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:34 PM
Keith was my guess as soon as I saw the list of people he liked but i was thrown by the NEW YORK locaction...i didnt think he lived there. Thought it was Wisconsin, of course people can move !:LOL

anton
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:34 PM
oh yea and most of the fun was getting another name and then you could come back and pertend to be somebody else and everbody would try and figure out who you were and say you are so and so and of course you say you are not and then BAM you let the cat out of the bag! 1 or 2 people actually ended up getting stalked by people from CNNSI. those boards were not anything to play with. And Kathy Roberts I remember. She was funny. a big venus fan who was a bodybuilder and used to post her weblink in every msg and people did do that back then on cnnsi.

Justin
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:35 PM
Nope.

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:35 PM
but keith would not say we had some big fights, afterall our last was two weeks ago since I was openly gossiping with yesh about him!

anton
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:36 PM
another funny thing people would do was pretend to be somebody else and log on at the same time as the actual person and try to drive them crazy. like for me somebody would log on as "anton." with the little period after the name and you couldnt hardly see the period so everybody thinks it is you.

darren cahill
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:37 PM
HUH???????????????? :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused:

Well then i give up cause Keith was my bet....and here i was about to post an apology to Keith cause for some reason we had this weird falling out over what, i have no idea. and i really liked keith so that made it even more baffling. he just took a dislike to me and i never understood that.

oh well, so much for the public apology!

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:37 PM
loveseles?

Justin
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:37 PM
Damn Clay, aren't you the investigative reporter?? Good catch on the NY thing.

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:39 PM
I still have a feeling you are jks

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:39 PM
but then I don't think he is fond of martina

darren cahill
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:39 PM
i dont recall a "jks"????

and its weird i got the mary pierce situation right, just not the right poster....

darren cahill
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:41 PM
OH MY, STRAPPED?????????????

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:42 PM
or you are david-r

darren cahill
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:44 PM
NO, I think hes STRAPPED. Which is odd, cause i always thought Strapped was keith cause Keith change his log in a lot. And strapped was the one who EXPOSED me cause i said "and speaking of Strapped, I'm hoping my boyfriend straps me tongiht" or something like that and he posted that on Mary pierces board, like anyone cared? that was the only time i recall a run-in with strapped. I was excited though thinking it was keith. i was gonna get all mushy.

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:45 PM
he can be keith afterall:p
that chris thing is too suspicious :p

darren cahill
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:46 PM
but i thought he said NOPE earlier when we mentioned Keith>?

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:47 PM
he still didn't stop(chris I mean)

Justin
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:47 PM
still wrong

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:47 PM
are you on world tennis?

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:48 PM
this is a nice way to practise my investigation skills:p

darren cahill
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:49 PM
well the only one i am sorry to is Keith....i always felt bad about our bashings at each other...they felt personal. I only remember some monica fans going off at me but they didnt stick in my brain. Only strapped...and maybe sometimes that sophia person

Justin
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:49 PM
nope. this board is it. the other ones got tiring and I lost interest.

I gotta hit the gym. I'll check back later and see if you got it right.

darren cahill
Sep 11th, 2002, 10:51 PM
yeah i gotta go now too. Its too time consuming. But if its Keith, sorry bud,,i always did like you a lot. and if its strapped, well i'm still hoping that hunky boy of mine gives me that strappin' i so desperately need, and feel free to post that on what ever Mary board you deem necessary!:D

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 11:09 PM
are you scootad?

irma
Sep 11th, 2002, 11:27 PM
last guess are you maybe millenium?
the poster I for a long time though it was disposablehero?
man we had some fights :eek:

now I am going off to bed

Justin
Sep 11th, 2002, 11:50 PM
You got it!

well done

darren cahill
Sep 12th, 2002, 12:44 AM
wow, thats a log in i dont recall at all. How bizarre i remember all the rest of that story except the log in name. thats a bit of a letdown! LOL :fiery: fun though! LOL

Seles2002
Sep 12th, 2002, 01:48 AM
Yes anton!! I'm the guy who sent you those newspaper clippings:) I got you letter you sent recently, but I've been busy with school work so I'm sorry I didn't reply.

Anyway, I used to be Seles2000, and was at the CNN/SI from their beginnings in 1997 around French Open time. There were some nice posters there, Helen, gaby, ChrissyR, DavidR, Kathy, Mountainchick etc...

anton
Sep 12th, 2002, 03:39 AM
hey seles 2002!!! You guys in Australia ARE THE BEST!!! I still have those clippings of venus and Serena and plan to use them in my magazine! The are so funny!! thanks so much! That was back in 1998 I think!!

Also I just thought of something. People used to make fun of everybody's names like people attacked Mountainchick and called her "monutaintits" :)

irma
Sep 12th, 2002, 08:18 AM
:)
that was fun. Now I know again why I learn what a paper is:)
