I've seen plenty of backstabbing and subtle digs and no, I'm not going to give examples since I'm heading out to have another go at the Tintin shop (this time, I did check if they were open )
Two years ago it was more of a war between chat threads, this year I haven't got the feeling at all. In any case, it's just fun If some people strategize, send PMs, or campaign, it's all part of the fun. The only negative reaction so far this year has been from Mjau who complained that she lost because her opponent voted for himself.

You can bet on that (I wanted to give you a rep but MTF wouldn't let me)

I was lucky enough to have my favorites against people I didn't know or I liked less. The perks of beeing less active outside this thread, I guess

Re: Merton strikes back: Football & Snooker spamming plus random topics Rafachat vol.

All it takes to go far in pop contest are these:

- not be a federer fan
- participate in lots of chat threads
- be kind to everyone (then be fake because one can't get along with everyone )

It takes way more to go far in ACC

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

I guess it depends on your viewpoint because if some people strategize, campaign,.... to help somebody get votes, somebody on the other side of that could feel miffed.

If somebody writes something like "best MTF'er and it's not even close" to explain a vote in a match, there's somebody else who regularly chats with the author of the comment who will feel (slightly) disappointed.

Then there's this sort of comment
"I'm voting for A because I've known her longer so B? " or "I'm voting for C because she/he's my good buddy so D"
I find it fake in most cases. Probably says more about my own cynical personality than anything else but there's only very few who can write this sort of comment and get away with it (meaning that it comes across as honest to me.)

It's a coin with two sides, you see the upside, I see the downside.
It's not important anyway.

Hilde, what are you planning to buy at the tintin store? Also, do they have a english language version of their store from where you can order online?
