Question have you been bullied for supporting kim?

everybody has their favourites and we all show it in our messages and signature. however, some brainless people just dun get the fact that everyone has different preferences. i for example listed kim to be in some of the slam winners for next year and some guy called sense who just joined the forum less den a week ago tried to bad rep me saying that kim missed the boat??!! i mean since when is supporting your fav a crime?? it's not as if i put down his fav or whatever... any instances from the rest in ccl? i feel very angry and pissed for this. it has never happened to me before. hope you all share.

Kim Clijsters Welcome back

Yes, well not bullied

But some people laugh about me because I support Kim while I should be supporting Justine as I am Walloon

You shouldn't be mad with those people, you should feel sorry for them: they are just jealous of your impeccable taste!

There's definitely one thing ppl should get used to on this forum-it's full of morons. I don't think that only Kim fans are bullied here. As far as i know, it's totally the same with Amelie, Daniela, LenaD fans and lots of others.
There are two ways to deal with it-You should either get used to this fact and ignore these idiots and certain threads started by them (that's what i try to do), or fight with them, which IMHO doesn't always make much sense.
Either way that's how it is, and i don't think there's any chance that it could change in the nearest future...

I'm beeing bullied by my own dad! Imagine that...He laughs at me for liking Kim so much...he preferes Justine more! Luckily we can laugh about it together! (As actually i know he likes kim too' cause he can't help himself to come and have a look when she's on tv and i kinda like juju too) But u can imagine us watching a match with justine and kim..it's hell for us...Cause even tho i like juju there is only one girl i wanna c winning

But i don't care...hearing my dad laugh at me(i know he just does that to annoy me) makes me like kim more cause we always end up having the discussion:'my player is better because...' and after a while i can assure u, u find a lot of positive points!

enough about my life... i know i talk too much...

just don't take notice of people like that...as long as u know why u like a player and don't forget those reasons it's all ok! people who treat people badly for liking someone are not worth it anyway!
i'd never go along with them cause wouldn't that make me as bad as them?

That's hilarious...Well my dad probably doesn't even realize who Kim Clijsters is ....He only knows Williams sis, like every one over here...

But i guess it must be fun, watching you two together fighting during certain matches

I know the feeling, I used to be really crossed and reply to these morons on GM a lot when I first came to the forum. Now I just don't care about these people who can't even respect each other's choice! They're not even worth reading or conidering! I'ld rather stick to the bunch of smart people that post in CCL.

countless times unfortunately although I find the best method for getting them to stop is staring at them till they get annoyed then they walk away. Seriously it works. I stop listening after the usual "how on earth could you like HER?" line...still I think it's pretty stupid to bag out someone over their opinions or tastes.

Lucie Safarova, Ana Ivanovic, Jelena Jankovic, Casey Dellacqua, Sabine Lisicki
Tomas Berdych, Marcos Baghdatis, Novak Djokovic, Bernard Tomic, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Tommy Haas, Jurgen Melzer

Great to meet you Jujufan. You'll always be welcome here. You'll find that some people here also like juju... I think the main problem with some is that they can't accept that people have different faves than them... It's one thing not liking someone but you still need to respect them for the player they are and what they've achieved. But I am confident actually I am absolutely sure to say that every person here is very respecful of anyone's taste as long as the respect goes both ways.

i certainly don't mind..i like diffrent opinions and everybody is allowed to have their faverites

i live very close to bruxelles and i still am a flemish girl as i always went to school in dutch, but both my parents are french speaking! i'm one of the lucky ones(imo) that gets to speak the two languages! Were i live we have walloons and flemish and 'the bruxelles'people all around..so it's not such of a problem who u are for justine or kim! it's not like there is a law that u can only support kim if u are dutch speaking or justine cause u are french speaking! thank god there isn't
like isn't it all about tennis? i'm sorry sometimes i'm so fed up with all this languagediscussions in Belgium!!! it always ends up with that!
i like kim cause i like kim not because she is a dutch speaking tennisstar..for all i know kim could have been born anywhere in belgium or justine could have been born anywhere! i don't care about what they speak! it's just that i like when they win cause they win it and they can take it home to 'Belgium' isn't it!! hihi...
i just hope i'm not offending anyone here...if i am it's not my intention to do so
talking too much again can't stop myself..and i'm giving yas a headache again with my language talk

Emilie!!!!
How can you give me a headache with all the discussions you and me had around languages in belgium ??? I'm the one who asks all the questions and you're the one patient enough to answer them! Don't you remember that night in Brussels we spent 7 hours talking around fries (the best ever btw..., and em is a great guide) and drinks in that so nice cafe, 75% of that time was on languages...
