I used (and sometimes I still
) mock the other players but I hope I keep cool and "ironic" enough
except sometimes I actually don't like what they do or say I may point it out but as noone is perfect, there can be critics too... I hope I don't sound as harsh and bitter as GM haters when I say something against a player.
I think it's quite possible that I've given up on GM for good. In the early years of my membership I posted there almost everyday. It was a cesspool in those days as well, but there were still lots of flowers between the weeds, so to speak. As things got worse I got into the habbit of having a few months of participating there followed by a few months of inactivity when I had enough. The last couple of years those months of activity were replaced by weeks followed by breaks of sometimes half a year or more. These days I only go to GM to see the thread titles so I know who has won which match. Rarely do I ever click on any of them to read what's being said. I'm just not interestd anymore.
and STAHP y'all 23 years old crying about your age, what should I say as I'm 1 year and a half from turning 30? only Chrissie-fan could say something to me!
My only hope of ever feeling young again is that one day someone called Helen Wills-fan or Suzanne Lenglen-fan will join TF.
