Just why the hell has this forum turned into a pretty-boy showcase?

Don't you sad little tarts care about the tennis or what? Jeez....talk about some shallow people here. NO-ONE CARES who you fancy/want to sleep with/have sex with. And let's face it, there's practically no chance of that happening to you. You must be either really sad or you cannot get any in real life to come up with that sort of crap.

Remember kids - this is a TENNIS forum, not a teenage girls forum.

Christ.....

It's just a phase.

Once a while, there are new posters starting or digging up all these threads. If you take notice, those old threads were started by posters hardly post here anymore.

IMO, the best way is to ignore these threads and let them sank to page 9384939209840 in GM. ;)

Except, Lee, I bumped them all so that new ones wouldn't begin as they had started to (a lot of new June posters I must say! Good and not so good ). Anyway, it's a vicious cycle.

What's the point? What are you trying to prove?

I didn't read those dinosaur (?sp) threads so I don't know it's you who bumped them up. I don't think this will help though as some new posters will still start new poll or thread of that nature.

I have to admit I read those threads because, sometimes, there're hilarious posts in those threads too :devil:

Thinking about it, I don't think we can help it. This is a forum with 6000+ members. There will be a few hundred crazy people here and there. Just like Lee has said, we can simply ignore or blast out at them once in a while, that's it we can all do.

As said before it's SO EASY to ignore these kind of threads. I don't have much time to visit this board anymore and only look at thread titles to see if it's an interesting thread or not. :)

and on a tennis forum you CAN discuss a players looks....

Just to tell you how good the moderators work:
Once someone posted an edited photo of Marat Safin with a huge penis. The pic was disgusting and a few people reported the post and it was deleted FIVE months afterwards.

Actually, some of the really old threads are interesting cause they have old posters who you wonder "where are they now"?

i miss the posters of atpworld, but the ones I liked are people I still chat with. TF you really need to post one day on Becca's board. I'm sure you've missed your groupies.

So why the hell go over the same crap over and over again, everyone knows Andy, Marat, JMG, etc. are the showcases, so what's the point of letting the little tarts say who they want to sleep with, have sex with, or bed? Don't tell me this forum is a teenage girl forum disguised as a Tennis forum.

seriously, boring times can make some people create new threads, whether you like them or not.

And and that's why you have a huge picture of Safin's mug as your avatar. Why not Radek Stephenek or Pete Sampras? They're good players.

I find the threads very annoying too. I read the thread title and ignore it, but it feels annoying to have much more of these threads, than threads about tennis.

GM sucks.

Marat Safin is my fave player and he just happens to be the best looking tennis player at the same time!

It's not because of those types of messages on a forum, but it is because those kind of messages depict how the game of Tennis is seen today by female "fans".

yes.. but not all female fans are like that, luckily.

Yeah yeah. I bet he wouldn't be if he didn't look like that. This is almost like me saying Anna Kournikova is my fave player and she happens to be the best looking tennis player at the same time.......jeez....

You could have fooled me. The other day at Wimbledon, this guy went up to Henman hill while play was suspended, and he asked this bunch of girls who they came to see. "ANDY RODDICK" they replied. When asked why, all these thick bimbos could say is "fit", "he's fit", "hes well fit". I wish someone shot them.

You don't know me and that's fine, but your reasoning is not logic. Can't you understand that a woman can like Marat for his tennis? He does happen to have the best double handed backhand in the game and his great serve and powerful groundstrokes are nice to see.

Marat can be a nightmare to watch at times and I don't think I've been a diehard fan for four years now just cause I'd like to drool over a goodlooking man. FYI no matter how good looking a man is, I will not wake up at 4AM just to drool over him (yes I woke up to watch the AO final). You shouldn't assume that EVERY person that makes a comment about a players looks is shallow.
I also suggest you'd read some more old threads before commenting on me. The people who do know me, know that I post in these silly polls just for the sake of being annoying.

Man (or woman?), i know that there are many female fans like that.

But not all.

and yes you can be a fan of a good looking player WITHOUT liking him BECAUSE of his looks.

It annoys me too, but I wouldn't worry too much, they will grow out of it.
On here it's not just the girls who are salivating, it's the boys too ;)

Appartly you've failed to notice ALL the females posting here on this board. They all have a fave player, they all can tell you who they find good looking or not and does that make them ALL shallow. WOW!

Well you should look at types of messages they post. They certainly give a bad impression......

You should learn to be selective in reading. There's plenty of fellow Marat fans I don't chat with simply cause we're on a different level :)

You know I don't mean you Andrea :kiss:

You obviously aren't going to be swayed from your opinion that women are hopeless bimbos who have no sense.

There were a lot of young girls who were screaming over Borg when he was 16/17 and the reporters made a lot of fun of them, but Borg became a legend and many of those same girls became tennis fans for life.

I think there are many beautiful male tennis players, and I see nothing wrong with admiring them. But, its ridiculous to think that I would choose my favorite tennis player based on looks only. Guga is my very favorite player. I don't think he is the most beautiful man on the tour. I like him because of his game and his entire persona.

I think Clement and Verdasco are the best looking men on the tour right now. I like them both but I'm not a fan. Maybe I will see more of Verdasco's game and learn to like him more. I like Guille and Andy, and while they are nice looking, their looks don't make me swoon.

Goenitz.. please.. most of the posters that are here a lot get annoyed by it too.. but this thread, doesn't help... Giving your opinion on it like this and then pretend that EVERYBODY who posts here is like that, also.. not helping. Meanwhile you have spent over half of your posts just to complain about this subject :rolleyes:, did you become a member here to tell everybody how this board sucks or do you actually WANT to talk about tennis? Personally, I think there are too many sex related threads too. But I DO see the fun of it and if I have some extra online time I sometimes actually read it, cuz it is funny as hell.. Besides, if people wanna discuss players manhood/looks/butts or whatever, who are we to stop them? IF they do it in the already existing topics, of course.
So lighten up, please! Just try to see the fun in these threads or else don't read them. There's no need to get all pissed off about it.
