I haven't been a member here for very long, but the atmosphere on this forum is needlessly antagonistic and negative in the endless number of threads comparing the achievements of the Big Three, and the same points are made again and again.
I'm a Federer fan but that doesn't mean I hate Nadal or Djokovic, despite the painful defeats they've inflicted on my hero. Indeed, I think this forum would be a lot better if more posters were willing to acknowledge that all three are superb players, regardless of how each of us judges their relative merits.
The more threads that are posted making a case for any one of them over the others, the less relevant and more pointless the whole thing seems. Can't we just step back and see how fortunate we are to have lived at the same time as these three exceptional players?
And can't we accept that, while each of them has had their share of good and bad luck, their successes are deserved due to the dedication and effort they have put into their careers and the level at which they play?
Finally, let's enjoy the years that they have left at the top, knowing that people will surely look back on this era as one of the greatest periods in tennis history.
You don't need to hate a player to criticize that player.
So I think you are misusing the word "hate".
And there is nothing wrong with criticizing a player.
Also I don't think its appropriate for you to tell people how to post.

Its not about painful defeats.
I'm a Nadal fan, so Federer has been mostly harmless.
But I've never liked Federer at all, he's an obnoxious guy.
No hate, just not a person I'd ever respect.
In fact I like Djokovic more than Federer.
Heck, I like Rosol more than Federer.
