My initial intentions were to go with the majority, but then I decided otherwise.
To the people who said I used to be insightful, I never used to even post in GM! I honestly have no clue what you guys mean by me being insightful. Give me one example, because there really isn't.
And don't even pretend like you had any respect for me, you've been criticizing me from day 1.
Furthermore, it's the "trolls" and "clowns" that keep this place running. If you want a place to talk about tennis seriously 24/7 go to TW, because however much you might protest, the sarcasm and joking around will never go away from MTF.
I started posting here at the beginning of the year being very serious, but I had not 1 person respond to any of my posts. It's as if I was talking to myself each post I made. Do I like attention? Yes, anyone in the right mind would like attention rather than be ignored. Does that mean I'm an attention whore? Compared to posters such as yourself, probably. But honestly what more could you expect from a 14 year old? When I'm being serious, my posts are high quality; it doesn't mean that people recognize it.
What boggles my mind is that the second I change, people start reminiscing on how my posts used to be so great. Where the hell were you people when I was posting seriously?
That is all.
This is EXACTLY what GOAT=Fed said last year. You two must be brothers. "People didn't respond enough to me
so I became an idiot who annoys people instead."
By the way, "What do you expect from a 14 year old" is a lousy excuse, especially when you in the sentence after claim "when my posts are serious, they are high quality". Makes no sense at all.
Just so you know, I respected both GOAT=Fed and you before you went down this road. Perhaps this is too hard to understand, but just because people aren't showering you with goodreps, or even responds to your posts, does NOT mean no one notices you. (Btw, I'm quite sure you are wrong - people knew of your existence well before this thread was created.) You are exaggerating to get sympathizers now.
Personally I don't goodrep most posters I think are sensible. But I still appreciate them, and the feeling I get when I see they have posted something. Perhaps people on this forum should encourage each other more, but your solution is surely not smart. People will maybe respond to you more now but you will receive a lot more insults and a generally unfriendly attitude from most. Just remember that you brought this on yourself.
...And then once they don't like a poster, they're all over them
Noticing < Acknowledging
Except, no one is "acknowleding" you now, you know. That word infers respect. People are annoyed by you, there's a difference. Perhaps you think Notices < Dislikes, which would be sad.
