On MTF, you must troll to be recognized. Nowadays everyone is trolling like no tomorrow, and I like it. You said good match or w/e in a result thread, no one responds.

You write a fanboy essay like Manofsteel2013, and a whole page on a thread is just people quoting you.
speak for yourself, my username is not an alter ego. I think I'm pretty much the same on here as everywhere else tbh. Agree with the underlined part though.

I would like to think I'm nicer in person.

No way, I'm a pretty nice guy IRL.

But over the years my patience with idiocy on this forum has gotten increasingly smaller.

He is not speaking for himself though, he's speaking for the large majority. It's true that there are persons who don't use an alter ego, like yourself, but most do use them.

then he should've said that the large majority of posters here use pseudonyms

That is correct. He was rather too general.

I am intrigued though by how this thread started. The OP putting in the title the fact that MTFers are in general hateful? Any implications from this title, Kowchi?

I started this thread, because I think MTF is at an all time low.

We are all monkeys throwing poop at each other. The poop being the arguments, reasoning, words used; they are practically all shit.

Look at Nadal/Fed post game thread.

If you have an issue with a report/infraction, a user, a moderator or just want to talk, PM me.

I support Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray, David Ferrer, Del Potro.

Why? Because I love tennis plain and simple

Re: Are you as hateful(mean,disgruntled,etc.) in real life as you are on MTF?

I was a naive, unsullied, innocent person before I joined MTF. Now I am an obnoxious ignoramus, constantly discrediting everything I see and labelling my friends and families as "mugs". For example, the other night at dinner, my brother ate most of the chicken that was available - I called him a vulture.

I was also in the car the other day and saw somebody running on a the sidewalk. He accidentally slipped over and I said "what a mug".

This place has ruined me. So you could say it's about the same. God save me. I need therapy. I must ask the US government to put MTF on their top priority list when it comes to surveilling the net - it ruins lives.

Too funny. I think internet forums are a lot like driving by yourself when the road rage kicks in, and you inexplicably find yourself flipping the bird at some old lady who cut you off. If you saw her at the bank afterwards, you'd feel ashamed of yourself. There's little accountability on the internet and it's easy to let out repressed aspects of your personality, whether you are a prankster, a joker, a troll, or a jerk. Personally, I try to
suppress my dark doppelganger as much as possible but pranking and joking is too delicious a vice to give up

Well, the majority seem to do it, but not all of us. I am not into this monkey group, nor will ever be. And there's a large part of the community here that is not there either, they're just not active in the General area of the forum, so you may not know them.
