i don't have like one favorite. i like a lot of girls.
i'll give this place like a day or two but i don't think this is very warming and nice place for people. is everyone always so angry and mad? i have seen so much cutting each other personally with words here in just the few times i read. it's very sad.

I think you have to try not to pay too much attention to the negative things. There are also many positive things on this board. There are also some very nice people. :)

Just be different from what you are referring to and you'll be fine, I think.

Oct 5th, 2004, 10:44 PM
Addictive it is. I think the amount of "hate" here isn't that bad. Basically a small group of posters who you'll learn to avoid. And that's mostly in General Messages. The player forums are mostly positive.

Bottom line: General messages can become quite fiery sometimes, but that can be enjoying as well. The player forums and chat threads are just fan.

Not really, maybe after her actions at the US Open, but she disappointed alot of people with her behavior, I wouldn't call that hate. Even that doesn't compare to the hate the sisters get year-round.

To avoid hate, Just stay away from the GM when

1) Venus or Serena Lose
2) Venus or Serena withdraw
3) Venus or Serena win
4) Venus or Serena party
5) Venus or Serena suceed at other things
6) Venus or Serena fail at other things
7) Venus or Serena do anything

and you'll be alright ;) :p

That's cool. I think sometimes you'll find fans of players disliking each other more than they dislike the players. For some reason message boards can be that way.

GM is a free for all. It can be fun, entertaining and painful- just like
the real WTA tour! :lol:

If you want an easier time then hang out at the specific player forums.
Each has it's own tone, and vibe; but you should have an interest in
the player that it's for- or else it ain't pretty! ;)

And that is a totally wrong thought!

It all depends on how you behave yourself on this board. That is: If you talk to other posters in a respectful way, then you would get treated in the same way.

I've been posting on this board for almost a year now, and I can tell you that there are so many nice and intelligent people in here that sometimes I even think they're my good friends.

The trick is not to let yourself take anything too personally. Remember this is not a mob or a rat pack. Everyone is behind a lap top or PC just like you in the privacy or their home. Yes things get heated up once in a while but I think you will find that every message board has it's good and bad.

Just have fun with it and be yourself.

There are nice people here, and there are idiots. Just like anywhere else. And just like anywhere else, the idiots are usually louder. However:

Mariangelina's Top 10 Reasons Why WTAWorld Idiots Are Better Than Real-World Idiots

10. You can laugh at them hysterically without them knowing.
9. They're multilingual, multicultural, varied idiots, rather than spoiled-white-suburban-anglophone-teenage idiots like 80% of the ones I know.
8. You can sharpen your debating skills on them without fear of them putting nasty things in your locker.
7. Spelling mistakes can be pretty funny.
6. Most of them won't be voting in my country's election and terrifying me as to its future.
5. You get to see just how silly religious fundamentalism actually is.
4. You can't give real-world people little red dots for acting like assholes.
3. You don't have to experience their idiotic driving skills, unlike the situation with many local idiots.
2. There may be assholes aplenty, but most of them don't use "That's so gay", "You are such a fag", "That was the gayest movie I've ever seen" as their all-purpose insults. :fiery: And if you're not gay, you probably don't know how much it hurts to hear that 24/7 from your supposed peers and/or friends. :sad:

And the #1 Reason Why WTAWorld Idiots Are Superior to Real-World Idiots:
1. You can escape them whenever you like! :bounce:

Hon, if you don’t take the board seriously you’ll be fine. The problems begin when people start believing everything that’s posted about their favourite players, their favourite celebrities, their countries, their religion, their political views, etc. A sense of humour is required but some people don't realise that.
