There are certain posters on this board who get a lot of satisfaction from fighting with Venus and Serena fans, by posting hateful and mean comments about the sisters.

I had to learn the hard way to just hit the scroll button when I see certain posters’ names because I know they hate the sisters and want me to have a strong reaction to their venom by posting something hateful in response to their hateful post.

This thread is dedicated to listing those names. I hope this will be especially helpful to newcomers who often get sucked in by these people.

I know many posters choose to respond to these other posters. Dawn can respond to these people with dignity and grace, and I don't know how she maintains her composure. They piss me off. Unlike Dawn and Deira, it can get too emotional for me and I don't like being in that negative mind space for something that I do in my spare time. I always wish I had never read these posts in the first place and kick myself for having done so.

My advice is to not even read the posts by these people and if you do, to think long and hard before you respond to them because unfortunately, you are giving them what they want.

pisces, I am so sorry to read what you've written. Please know that there is MUCH LOVE in the Williams Tennis Association, which certain other people on this board seem to want to tear down.

I also have lost family members to drugs. Two cousins over dosed when I was a kid. Most of the people on my father's side of the family have drug or alcohol problems.

My cousin is the smartest person I know and now he is homeless because of alcohol abuse. It brings tears to my eyes to think of what he has gone through. When he started drinking, I used to drink with him. I was also abusing alcohol for my freshman year of college and ended up dropping out and losing a 4 year scholarship to an Ivy League School. Thankfully, I pulled myself together and in May will be receiving my second graduate degree from Harvard.

The bond between Williams fans is very strong. We have your back when you need it. But you know, you have suffered so much, please just ignore the posters who call you names and want to drag you down. Learn who they are and not to read their posts. I have. It can be tough and sometimes you forget, but if you try to keep that as an objective, you'll find that this board will not be yet another source of hurt and pain for you, but a supportive environment where you can share our enthusiasm, hopes, dreams and love for Venus and Serena.

You might want to start some threads in the "safe zone" which is the Williams Tennis Association section. If you are feeling down, only read posts in this section. You'll get "nothing but love" from us,I promise.

By the way, I am also a pisces. March 5th.

Peace and good luck to you. Keep your eyes on the prize and always remember that the sisters are one of the biggest success stories of our time.

Gosh, I am sorry I hadn't read the folllow ups to this thread.

Let's stick together. That goes without saying. I have gone into a couple of threads in "General", and I've had to hold my tongue from all the Williams bashing going on.

Sadly, I got e-mail back from some of the old posters who know about this board but say they are just too put off by the overwhelming anti-Williams forces in here. I must agree that it seems to be particularly anti-Williams in those General threads.

Let's try to form a comradarie around Serena for this week. I keep reading about her being "rusty", which I don't seem to remember and I feel I must be one of her biggest fans. It borders on obsession.

Susie started a Serena thread here. She is playing this week. I am happy. I love Serena. I honestly think she is the most inspiring personality on the tour.

I'll see you guys in the Serena cheering threads this week. Ignore the player haters (Adrian, et. al.).

QUEENLINDSAY..

OMG You guys really make me get emotional, I lost my mom also, 3 years ago, I miss her. But I am learning to live without her presence. I used to give more importance to my mom, than my dad. Big mistake, when my mom, unfortunely died, I started to see that my dad is a special person, with a strong heart. Strong enough to care of me and my sister. I miss my mom, but my dad makes this longing gone, for some days. Which is impossible, cause we never forget our moms. <br />I hope all Williams fans that is passing through this same case like I am, I wish you all strengh and that life has to continue, ok? <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

ps <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> on't care about my english, I just hope u get my message <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0">

This list was compiled some time ago, and I can't say who gets the sad honor of being on it, or who has "amended their ways", and can be taken off, but to all the Williams fans, it's that time of year again. Hatin' and bashin' is alive an' well.

I don't mind that posters disagree, or have their own opinions, but to just jump in and start hating on a player, well that's what a true "idiot" would do. Why can't they just debate the issue and leave the irrational hate out?

Oh, well, happy posting everybody, but be on guard, and don't get suckered in.

Tee Rexx- don't let that Vanity person bug you. She's just trying to start trouble. This is only the beginning. Wait til Vee and Rena really start kicking butt..

btw--I don't know why Big Lindsay is on the list. She likes both girls, and power players in general. I don't think Fingon is a hater either. He just likes to defend Martina.
