My first reaction to ATP World is that it will take away some of the quality and best posters (tennischick, Becca etc.) from WTA World. Is that happening? Or am I misjudging the situation?

Well I will still go to wtaworld to read Jenn's big brother story in GM - very funny and cute for those of you who haven't seen it - and I will go there every day or two to see if anything in non tennis pops out at me.

When this place gets more busy, I might not go there at all.

Frankly there are just way too many people who hate me over there

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

I need to re-read this a couple of times - somethings not quite right in that statement

Some body told me you'd found new bonhomie
Going places you'd never go with me
I felt myself become a bitter old shrew
Oh id have bitten you in two if you would let me

Somebody told me youd found places to go
new people to know, new ladies and so
I felt myself become a bitter old shrew
Id have bitten her too, if you would let me

Also I think that I can keep myself out of trouble here.

I can get quite viscious when arguing with people who I deem as rather stupid, and thankfully I have had no run ins here yet

I lack direction.

lol @ Julie.

Quality, and wtaworld I thought that when I first read it, but then began my rant, since he brought me up.

I'm all about quality

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Who is "he", Becca? Me? If "he" is me, then "he" has a name!

Becca, this is only tennis. There is no reason for people to hate you! People should come to the boards to escape the problems of the real world and have fun!

Becca, I know I have frustrated you from time to time with some of my posts! And you have responded accordingly!
Ouch! But I still have always felt that I could respond to your posts and that you have learned to tolerate me and my sometimes annoying ways! Is that true? If it is, then you have come along way!

And I definately don't expect the amount of vitriol at ATP World that exists at WTA World. I wonder if talking about men's tennis players creates less havoc than talking about women's tennis players?

Julie, sorry about your Timmy! Maybe next year!

the cat - at the time of the post the only people in this thread were you, me and julie.

Seeing as you were the only "he" I saved myself the extra word and typed that.

It really wasn't worth taking offense over.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

the cat - for some reason people feel the need to defend their fave women players more.... people are a lot more touche with that subject...

I am in a sense - for example when people would stupidly put up threads of healthy women and talk about how fat they were I would go ballistic, because I find that bloody sick.

However we seem to be able to make fun of the men without too much trouble.

I mean, I'm more than likely on watch for stalking Ferrero , yet *most* of the time when people say bad things about him I just dont' care.

meh.

I digress.

I lack direction.

And we have to take all we can from this board while we have time. Its so cosy (cozy?? whatever... )
