I wonder if this "mimesis" means that Noletards like myself develop a bad reputation by retiring from active threads with unconvincing excuses...
Only if you turn it into an art form
"Mimesis" is an expression I am somewhat surprised to encounter on a sports forum. Then again I suppose this makes me "annoyingly arrogant", in which case I suppose I'm mirroring my fave player (according to the poster who introduced the term to this thread) thus confirming his/her hypothesis as to the mimetic nature of the relationship between a player and his fanbase. Oh, BUGGER!
Oh, and I voted "Nationalists" (a bigger threat to world order than religious fanatics), "WTA apologists" (harmless, but annoying) and "Other" (you know who you are).
