Just why the hell has this forum turned into a pretty-boy showcase?

Don't you sad little tarts care about the tennis or what? Jeez....talk about some shallow people here. NO-ONE CARES who you fancy/want to sleep with/have sex with. And let's face it, there's practically no chance of that happening to you. You must be either really sad or you cannot get any in real life to come up with that sort of crap.

Remember kids - this is a TENNIS forum, not a teenage girls forum.

Christ.....

Pete Sampras - no yelling, no bad language, no fooling around, no showmanship, no media obsession, no nonsense. He just let his tennis do the talking. Enough said.

It's just a phase.

Once a while, there are new posters starting or digging up all these threads. If you take notice, those old threads were started by posters hardly post here anymore.

IMO, the best way is to ignore these threads and let them sank to page 9384939209840 in GM.

Except, Lee, I bumped them all so that new ones wouldn't begin as they had started to (a lot of new June posters I must say! Good and not so good ). Anyway, it's a vicious cycle.

What's the point? What are you trying to prove?

I didn't read those dinosaur (?sp) threads so I don't know it's you who bumped them up. I don't think this will help though as some new posters will still start new poll or thread of that nature.

I have to admit I read those threads because, sometimes, there're hilarious posts in those threads too

Thinking about it, I don't think we can help it. This is a forum with 6000+ members. There will be a few hundred crazy people here and there. Just like Lee has said, we can simply ignore or blast out at them once in a while, that's it we can all do.

Re: Just why the hell has this forum turned into a pretty-boy showcase?

As said before it's SO EASY to ignore these kind of threads. I don't have much time to visit this board anymore and only look at thread titles to see if it's an interesting thread or not.

Better still, why not get the mod to delete them as soon as one pops up....I mean after all this is a tennis forum right.....

Re: Just why the hell has this forum turned into a pretty-boy showcase?

and on a tennis forum you CAN discuss a players looks....

Just to tell you how good the moderators work:
Once someone posted an edited photo of Marat Safin with a huge penis. The pic was disgusting and a few people reported the post and it was deleted FIVE months afterwards.

Actually, some of the really old threads are interesting cause they have old posters who you wonder "where are they now"?

i miss the posters of atpworld, but the ones I liked are people I still chat with. TF you really need to post one day on Becca's board. I'm sure you've missed your groupies.

So why the hell go over the same crap over and over again, everyone knows Andy, Marat, JMG, etc. are the showcases, so what's the point of letting the little tarts say who they want to sleep with, have sex with, or bed? Don't tell me this forum is a teenage girl forum disguised as a Tennis forum.

seriously, boring times can make some people create new threads, whether you like them or not.

And and that's why you have a huge picture of Safin's mug as your avatar. Why not Radek Stephenek or Pete Sampras? They're good players.
