just about half of the threads in gm on wta world is filled with arguments,and not in a calm ,mature way...
in a thread ment to congratulate a player who did very well,you get what,10 replies.
in a thread where there's another argument going on,the replies just don't stop.......
i'm sick of it,and maybe i'm should be posting it over there,but frankly ,i don't even feel like arguing with SOME (not all of them)posters over there..
so please,keep the peace here at atp world,the atmosphere seems so much better.......

I agree Poesie! This board is so much better. I hope it stays like this. :D

WTAworld... I only read like 2 threads there now.



Anyway, Poesie, when do I get that sweaty sex you promised?

I only go to GM when im feeling like shit. Then i see what nutcases and pathetic morons there are in the world and feel a whole lot better about myself :D:D

same here. this board feels so much more friendly and even if u like different players, no one really hates u for doing so. even the tim henman fan teasing is just a lot of fun (yes, i'll admit that i like it actually coz it's kinda funny) and not really mean or nasty. not to mention that every1 has a nicer sense of humour here and aren't easily offended or insulted by something that isn't even meant to be offensive or insulting.

every1 is welcome here even if they r new, unlike on wtaworld where new members r called "newbies" in i've-been-here-longer-than-u-so-i-am-better tones and r critisized for voicing their true opinions. there aren't really many ppl. here (sometimes i'm the only one who seems to be here :sad: ) but maybe that's better becoz there's less quarrelling and disagreement.

all i can say is, thanks for creating this board. my signature says it all.

ditto, the GM board in WTAWORLD is out of control sometimes, or should I say, most of the times, but you can still pick out the occasional good thread...ou have to be extremely choosy with the words you use, otherwise shouts of hater, racist, moron, newbie, ignorant and others will pollute your replies...
ATPWORLD is a new venture, and while not too many people post or lurk around, at least we have a quality and respectful crownd...

GM in Wtaworld is alright, really. You can tell from the titles of threads which ones are going to be filled with arguments. I just avoid them & read the interesting stuff/articles. It's a great place to go to for information. It helps that I'm far too laidback to want to argue...

that for the last few days ,even in threads where you don't expect it,the just turn the whole thing around and around untill they can pick on someone.

Yeah, I do know what you mean. But I still think that there's enough interesting tennis stuff in GM to make it worth reading. I'm far too lazy to crawl the internet for all the articles that get posted there, for example.

The ignore feature is pretty useful too. ;)

I go to GM to laugh, and can have as many brain farts there as I please, and somehow still sound more intelligent than about 75% of the people in there :p

Admittedly I go in there just to read "how stupid are people being today?" ;)

Um, and then I add to the trash :cough:

Raven

Agree with saki ;)

GM on wtaworld is useful for some info...just learn to filter out the trash...and yes there is quite a lot of it.

The ignore feature has come in handy for me.

I'm not laid back enough not to argue :o Although I pick my arguements lol... I'll defend Kimmie to no end of course and sometimes if I'm in a certain mood I'll get pissed off at a comment that somebody made and question that person on it o :o I'd never start trouble though :angel:

The big problem there is people are already argument-junkies. Its been like that for some time now. My main interest is ATP, so its fine like this. I keep getting info from there from time to time, but not frequently at all. And its so crowdy and slow too....
Btw, did I ever say WTA GM is evil?? :fiery: ;)

I think, when it comes to women, it's harder to stay friends. Women are the breed of all problems, and that is just the truth. And women themselves--they are never as good of friends as men are. Men don't get in fights over stupid things as easily.

WOmen are the breed of all problems?

You are exaggerating right? :o

I agree with the rest mind you ;)

It's about size more than anything else. WTAworld at the beginning was very like this.

Don't be snobs people, and turn up your noses at WTA World! ;) You should head back there to post your insightful thoughts and help make WTA World a better place to be! :bounce: To be, or not to be? :confused: That is the question! ;)

If WTA World is in a downword spiral, how in the world can we stop it? The only way would be to go back to WTA World and bring creativity and thoughtfulnes with you! :)

saki is right..... any board that reaches that size turns out to be that way and if this one ever gets thousands of members it will be the same here

if you just go for information it's not a problem because you can see clearly which threads have draw and score info, interviews etc.. but if you like to start good conversations about the sport itself that's when it starts to get frustrating because of the amount of people who love to throw in their little comments that they know will stir up shit..... you can ignore it, but not everyone will, so the thread is ruined because of one person
