You've read my intent pretty well Calimero.
I would like to see more people here in the Blast-but should we be general messages? I'd hardly expect interest in all matters past-but we are a separate and smaller forum (in my opinion) for a reason.
Forgive me here-but I think you give more thought to Steffi being "the greatest" and Monica Seles in one day than Steffi probably dies in a year. If that does it for you-fine by me. But IMO that's what GM is for. Most people here have evolved beyond the "fan" stage.
They are fans in the best sense of the word, like HanaFan or Irma or Kart to name only 3. They can take criticism of their favorites without a knee-jerk reaction.
My concern is what happens when more WTA stars retire.
Are we going to get same type of "fans" we see in GM?
If that's what the forum decides as a whole I won't stand in the way. On the other hand maybe it's time we define what the Blast is and isn't.
Separate forums for separate purposes.
You had a question:
You are exihibit A.
Where do you draw the line between "expressing opinions" or "making us mad" and "childish wars"?
Does that answer your question?
We have had heated battles before in the Blast. Cat fights galore. But the parties involved wern't solely obsessed about glorifying one person and trashing all others. Again, that's fine if that floats your boat, but IMO the place for that is general messages.
