Re: Spies that never post

Beware, we at Cult Intelligence are using the information gathered on MTF to launch further covert operations against message boards, with the aim of achieving ultimate internet domination. In fact, you should know that one of your own kind has in fact been "turned" by us, to act as a double agent - and you wondered why tangerine was always so keen to distance herself from us...

In all seriousness, I prefer to think of ourselves not as mindless espionage drones but as a kind of Greek chorus, commenting upon the events which we witness upon the theatrical stage that is MTF. All the posters in it are merry players, they have their geniuses and their dullards (heya et al), but it is a rich and varied tapestry of human experience that we would be foolish not to observe from afar. The last time I checked the internet still allowed freedom of expression, and while the Ducklings are undoubtedly a hunted and endangered species on this board it is quite within our right to study them in their natural habitat.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

I think Skyler (Fumus) meant this thread to be for Andy fans who just lurk here but don't participate. Obviously we won't force anyone to participate in the fun, but hey as always the more the merrier!!

is "lfty" some meaning about lefties?

Re: Spies that never post

More self-rightgeous, condescending insulting bullshit.

If you believe half the crap you dish out, I pity you.

If you think any of use actually hold any of the opinions you ascribe to us, you are a bigger idiot than you appear to be from your posts, if that is possible. It is quite easy to say that Andy's fans are holding a this fantastical opinion that you have set forth above, and then laugh at it. Dishonest, of course, but easy and easy to laugh at it among your little set of believers, when in fact nobody ever held that opinion at all.

I am sure that you who hold yourselve superior to anyone who would have the unmitigated gall and/or idiocy to support Roddick, like to entertain the view that you are "studying" lesser beings. What a marvelous shiver of elite delight you must feel when you snicker and sneer.

Of course, one has the "right" to do many a sad and sorry thing. It is always amazing to me that the ones who to annouce that they have a "right" are often behaving in a very shabby way indeed. But, I conceed that you have the absolute right to be an asshole. No one will stop you from being one, and if it gives you pleasure, then more's the pity for you.

But, to me, it makes not one iota of difference. I would abhor it if someone like you held me in high esteem. One is known by one's enemies as well as one's friends. If someone who derives pleasure from belittling, condescending, and name calling thinks I am contemptible, I glory in that contempt.

Yeah, I'm sorry that Fumus put "spies" in the title of the thread because that gives a different impression than what I think he meant. He was talking about lurkers who are shy about joining in. I don't think he actually meant "spies."

I mean.... to say "spy" sort of intimates that something of importance is going on here when NOTHING could be further from the truth.

Re: Spies that never post

You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to star again.

Well, crapola!!

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh.

The results have shown."

Oh and hi Mistry.

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?
