How stupid are tennisforum users compared to other sites?

Since joining tennisforum a few months ago and participating/observing, I must say: the level of stupidity here seems ridiculously higher compared to a lot of other forums and sites. And I'm talking about the whole site in general, not just GM. Holy SHIT. Why is this? Sports sites do tend to attract morons of all types, but is that really it? Are a lot of the people who post here just insulated in their own delusional worlds and never see sunshine or breathe fresh air? What is it exactly, because the vast majority of people here seem like a bunch of ignorant, boorish jackasses. Sorry not sorry.

Re: How stupid are tennisforum users compared to other sites?

Great thread People on here do have a tendency to act stupid (and I do this myself too), yet when you get to know them better, you'll notice that lots of people here are actually really smart. Lot's of phd students, people with great jobs or just overall smart people. Internet just usually doesn't bring the best out of people and it takes some more effort to see their true colors.

Don't let the door hit you on the way out. By the way "ridiculously higher" should be "ridiculously high"

Re: How stupid are tennisforum users compared to other sites?

Why do some double accounts just give up and make it blatantly obvious. This one made it half a year, you'd think it'd have been able to keep it going.

Something tells me this is not the first time you have written parting shots like these?
How many other discussion forums have you left because you were disappointed by the mediocre level of intellect?

I agree.

Tennis is a somewhat elitist sport, so there tends to be a lot of educated people. But women's tennis also attracts a lot of gays who are known for being bitchy and a lot of people on here have a penchant for being troll-y. It's also a very international sport so you get a lot of people on here who don't speak English the best.

Re: How stupid are tennisforum users compared to other sites?

Maybe it's because I'm a bit selective in the threads I visit, but in general I don't find TF stupid at all. I'm not really sure what "other forums and sites" the OP is referring to, but compared to what I've seen elsewhere TF seems pretty good, for a broad forum designed to cater to the full range of fans of a popular global sport. The overall level of discussions might not be brilliant, but if you take some time to choose which posts are worth responding to, rather than jumping on everything that you disagree with, you can have some pretty interesting and/or amusing exchanges.

It's inevitable on a forum as broad as this that you are going to get some idiots posting, but if you choose to spend all your time getting your knickers in a twist about that, rather than conversing with the large number of more reasonable and intelligent posters, I'd say that the problem is all yours
