I guess. I remember when Jelena finally responded to him about it, she said that he should keep his nose out of her business. With that nose, it's hard to keep it out of anywhere

My Father's uncle had a nose twice Federer's size, that's one of the reasons I never understood this nickname. It's nothing out of the ordinary, really. Still "nose" has become a popular slight here on MTF. It always surprises me the lengths some go to in order to avoid using the correct names of the players they don't like. Perhaps they are afraid someone will make a search for their own nickname and the player's name, and they'll be mistaken for fans...me, I try to use correct names at all times. Or inoffensive short versions like Stan (the Man).

People just get joy out of calling people degrading names, I guess. Even if they're minor facial flaws. Sad world

Just saw it, you really went after them

Totally understandable if you're trying to get to uni, though. I'm relatively close by so I just walk

As derogatory names go, it's an inoffensive one, we see a lot worse....still sad to see this. In only invites retribution towards the offending poster's favourite(s). Tit for tat. But I guess some like offending others more than they dislike being offended themselves....

Indeed. I try to keep insulting to a minimum, but even I insult my faves a lot just for the heck of it.

I would hate it if people were to call me something like that, though; especially since I'm not the best at social interactions I have this disorder called aspergers; ever heard of it? :/

Insulting your own faves is something else....

Aspergers? Sure, I know a lot about it. My father is a psychologist. I know it's a very wide and disparate group of people that are labeled as such, with lots of variation about what limitations they have socially - if any. My father feels the label is not to much use, seeing as you don't get any treatment for having Aspergers. He feels this should just be accepted as normal variation without the need for labeling.

You should know I'm not good socially either, though in my case it's more due to physical limitations. My body is intolerant to among other things smoke and perfume. And by smoke I mean all kinds - tobacco, fireplace, barbecue, candles....seeing as I live in a cold country there's a lot of that around. And perfume is everywhere. So my social life is nonexistent. I discovered my problems as a child, and there's really nothing to be done about it. At least nothing have worked so far. So I can relate to social difficulties.

Actually I do take medication for it. It tends to relieve the stress I get from interacting with people.

Good morning Di

Hi and I'm sorry Markus

I broke that finally, I only lost TT matches recently. Today diffs was posted and we picked the same players for first round so I won it.
Doubles is very very important right now so I really want to win doubles first round. Three days round. +1 (on SRs) advantage isn't too much, there are SR diffs only once again, one to play today.

Never ever give up

Stress reducing stuff? Do you mind terribly if I ask what this medication is called?
