I need to prepare a speech for my constituency outlining my campaign platform:

"I promise to edit all hater posts. Posting of Federer photos will be strictly prohibited and those who have them in their signatures will be banned form the Nadal forum, unless said photos belong to the 'special' category or have been altered for mocking purposes." :D

"Threads started by non Rafa-fans will be deleted including the present thread."

"Those voting for me will get bonus points in the M.I.T. competition. Those voting against will have their points reduced to zero." :dance:



As for my rivals, Linda and Hema (I don't include Jordan because he will be banned as soon as I am elected), I suggest they concede defeat right now and save us all the trouble of an extended and expensive campaign. :)

Hmmm...let me see. I have yet to vote...


Hema.
I've never travelled to India before but I have a couple of family members who are Indian and I like Indian food in general so this is all positive.
Speaking against her:
- Newly found Fedal status. Honestly, in the middle of this Rafael Nadal Forum Moderator election campaign, the woman has an avatar of Federer.
- According to her: Fed's hairy chest >>> Rafa's thighs. Every proud Rafatard/fangirl who voted for her should now smack themselves.


Linda
I have travelled to Scotland and had a fantastic time there. Scottish food - as I've tasted it- lets the country down, I'm afraid.
Speaking for her: will not be afraid to use extreme measure to keep the place a happy one for Rafatards/fangirls by pestering trolls. Should be entertaining!
Speaking against her: the power this brings could be her downfall. :awww:
Also, the smiley behind her name in the poll is annoyingly cheerful.


Metis:
Also travelled to Greece before and it's a wonderful country. I met some very friendly people there. Greek food? Better than Scottish food but still not my cup of tea.
Speaking for her: her Nadal loyalties are beyond doubt.
Speaking against her: perhaps too nice to trolls?


Hmmm...this could take some time.

I have not yet decided how to cast my vote. My ideal candidate will classify "Fedal" fans as "haters" and ban them unless and until they renounce any loyalties to Federer (hereafter "He Who Shall Not Be Named (Again)" or "HWSNBNA").

Hemmers:

I simply cannot vote for you unless you renounce HWSNBNA. Sorry. I realize that, under my ideal system, you would be banned for continuing to support HWSNBNA. You would be missed. :sad: In particular, I would miss calling you "Hemmers."

Linda:

You seem to be the candidate most willing to advance Anti-HWSNBNA policies. Maybe too willing. I fear that, as Moderator, you would ban everyone but yourself during fits of cantankerousness, after which you would presumably just post your inner monologue.

Metis:

You are already showing signs of becoming mad with power:

(1) You're already the thread's Unofficial Official Summarizer. Now you want to be a Mod as well?
(2) It's a well-known fact that you are a fan of the show The Tudors. You might just have a little bit too much Henry VIII in you.

Conclusion:

We need to webcast some sort of debate. It's the only way of truly vetting these candidates.

:sigh: The life of a candidate for office is so hard. :awww: So much slander, so many accusations leveled against you... :sad:


(1) I think being the chat thread summarizer is excellent preparation for the job of the forum moderator. It shows the ability to glean all the important information and keep the posters aware of the developments. It teaches you to keep an eye on everything and filter the unnecessary details. :)

(2) I never said I was a fan of the Tudors. :mad: It is true that I recently watched Season 1 but I have commented that it was nothing special. I want to make clear that I in no way sympathize with Henry VIII or his actions. I think Charles II was a much better ruler, moderate in his actions and more considerate; he never divorced his wife although she gave him no heir :hug: (and although at that time he could have done it very easily) and he certainly never beheaded any women. :yeah:


Anyway, I think that all this tirade of yours is provoked by (a) jealousy because you were not included in the list as a candidate for the position and (b) fear that the new mod will delete your 'HotPix of Maribel' thread. :rolleyes:

Typical for most slick politicians in an election campaign. An obvious attempt to divert attention but you haven't addressed certain issues :ras:
1. Newly found Fedal status:
keeping in mind what Genci said as well in the chat thread : most Fedal fans tend to support Federer more. We need a moderator who has his/her loyalties and priorities right. :shrug:

This is what happens when my voter base fails to understand the sacrifices that I make. If you had noticed what Mikey does with his avatars you would know . My avy is to jinx Federer from winning Wimbledon.

Also, since I have been forced to say it, I am saying it. My Fedal status was temporary. It was meant as a cover to spy on the other Fedals and weed out the Fed lovers from that group and expose them for what they are. You have made me blow my cover now:sad:

I don't understand why I don't see your name on my list of voters :sad:

Metis won't even have a Rafa avatar, rarely ventures an opinion on anything not opera related, seems to be more concerned about Nalby and baggy than Rafa ... frankly her Rafatard credentials leave a lot to be desired.

Meanwhile I kept this forum going in the laters stages of last year, continue to post enthusiastically around the forum, not just in the chat thread like some others :rolleyes:, and would do a better job than any other candidate. Particularly if I were ever called upon to defend the Rafa forum in any way.

Maybe I don't have Metis' everywoman blandness :D and, sure, I am occassionally controversial but I would not be the all deleting power crazed dictator as some in the Metis camp are insinuating. I have found their personal attacks on my character very hurtful, but am grounded enough not to let emotion get the better of me.

07-03-2008, 04:40 PM
Have you voted yet, Hilde?

I don't understand why I don't see your name on my list of voters

Metis won't even have a Rafa avatar, rarely ventures an opinion on anything not opera related, seems to be more concerned about Nalby and baggy than Rafa ... frankly her Rafatard credentials leave a lot to be desired.

Just because you cannot contribute to the conversations about opera doesn't mean you have to diss those who can. And just because football and wrestling is not my thing doesn't mean I don't have opinions on various subjects. At least people here know a bit about me and what I do whereas you have kept a veil of secrecy. You could be a hitwoman for all we know and what influence would that have to the young posters here (some of them young teenagers with innocent hearts :hug: )? Not to mention that you have repeatedly stated you hate puppies and kittens :speakles: (very suspicious if you ask me).

If at some point forum pages could have smilies and you were a mod, the Nadal forum would look like this:

:bigcry: :bigcry: :bigcry:

:scared: :scared: :scared:

:sobbing: :sobbing: :sobbing:

Everyone would be driven to depression. :shrug:

As for Marcos and Nalby, they are my #2 and #3 players; that shows I am not blindly supporting only Rafa and have a general interest in tennis. I don't see how that puts in doubt my Rafatard status; on the contrary it reinforces it. I have had a Rafa avatar before (right after Queens). In a sea of Nadal avatars I like to differ a bit and pick the right moments. I spend most of my MTF time in the Nadal forum and rarely ever visit my other favorites' forums so from time to time I like to show my support by putting them in my avatar. :)

Your argument is like saying that a person that doesn't wear a cross around their neck can't be a devout Christian.


Maybe I don't have Metis' everywoman blandness :D and, sure, I am occassionally controversial but I would not be the all deleting power crazed dictator as some in the Metis camp are insinuating. I have found their personal attacks on my character very hurtful, but am grounded enough not to let emotion get the better of me.

:spit: Oh please, now you are backtracking? Clearly you are starting to lose it a bit in this campaign, like Murray against Rafa in the QF. :lol:

I never insinuated anything. I have only stated facts! The voters are smart enough to figure out the truth.


That only shows that his jinx didn't work. I cannot guarantee that all jinxes will work. But I try my best

And while I don't like to boast, I was the thread started for the RG thread. And I managed to pull Rafa to the semis starting the Wimbledon thread. How much more can I toil before I gain acceptance, is what I ask you:sad:

Yes but who had to push you to start the Wimbledon thread? :dance:


Good point, Linda.

Besides, I haven't been given any bribes yet so you all expect me to vote? Pffft.

If the opinion of outsiders counts, I'll give you mine. Sorry that I'll stick with the ones with most votes but that is mostly because I haven't read enough to form an opinion about others yet ( which also means that those were most proactive around). I can't say that I know all of you for a long time and very good but from what I have read in here:
If the status of Tenizen as a fan is dual (Nadal/Federer) that would surely diminish her chances.
Metis looks like a moderate tempered person (of course with enough time spent on this forum and enough passion about Nadal, which are also qualities of others too) which I think is the best quality for a future moderator. On the other hand Linda has a qualities of a natural leader, but she is highly tempered and with too many negative emotions(hate kills the objectivity hugely). It is kinda scary though what she might do with the powers that will be given to her when she is in her "hate mood". So, my vote goes to Metis.

You've had a Rafa avatar once, in all your time here. I put it to you that you are a little embarassed by your Rafatard status. I too have a general interest in tennis, as evidenced by my work rate in General Messages. But Rafa is without question my priority. Can we say the same about you? I think the jury is still out.

thanks linda, your hug meant a lot to me :sad:

i can only PRAY that cheryl took note of that shameful deception and will publish a full expose.

i too dislike the biases some of the fedal tards show but i'm working towards :smash: some sense into them. if there's ever an election for a fedal mod, i should be a shoo-in :cool:

now, how are you at making indian food? :D for you, i won't be specific about north or south indian cuisine :hug:
I must confess to being a very lazy cook nowadays. :sad: I do love Indian food though.
Wow, an official poll?! Finally, a good idea. :yeah:

I wish all the best of luck to the candidates. Hopefully the elected official will restore some much needed order to this place. :D

Obviously, that excludes certain people, who shall remain nameless. :p
Have you voted? :awww:

I find that Metis's voters are not all as they seem
10nis! seems to be a Fed fan and doesn't even have Nadal in his signature.
And cobalt60(Sue:hug:) while being a regular on the chat thread doesn't really like Nadal:shrug:

Maybe I don't have Metis' everywoman blandness :D and, sure, I am occassionally controversial but I would not be the all deleting power crazed dictator as some in the Metis camp are insinuating. I have found their personal attacks on my character very hurtful, but am grounded enough not to let emotion get the better of me.

Is this because I said that you would, as a moderator, ban everyone else during "fits of cantankerousness"? :hugs: I meant the good kind of cantankerousness, like Scrooge McDuck from DuckTales. You know what I mean. :D

And just because football and wrestling is not my thing doesn't mean I don't have opinions on various subjects. At least people here know a bit about me and what I do whereas you have kept a veil of secrecy. You could be a hitwoman for all we know and what influence would that have to the young posters here (some of them young teenagers with innocent hearts :hug: )? Not to mention that you have repeatedly stated you hate puppies and kittens :speakles: (very suspicious if you ask me).

I don't fault Metis at all for not liking football--at least she doesn't fanboy Cristiano! :rolleyes: However, I don't mind Linda's supposed secrecy. She's at least given us her real first name (well, a first name), which is more than I can about Metis (or myself, for that matter). :p

:eek::eek::mad:
us fedals are generally a peaceloving group :spit: but even we can't take this kind of insults! i'm withdrawing my vote even though i was lured more by free masala dosas than by your fedal status.

i'm gonna switch to metis or linda. atleast they're open about their dislike of our group. i'm bitterly disappointed hemmers :sad:

this place rocks :yeah:

I was a little disappointed by Hemmers' remarks as well. She flip-flops. :( She should have defended her Fedal convictions. Of course, if she did that I would have had a clearer reason to not vote for her. :p

The promise of dosas doesn't do that much for me, as I prefer North Indian cuisine. I love Greek food almost as much as Indian food, so Metis' stock is still pretty high.

I still haven't voted. I'll save my vote until the last possible minute....

Tangy is also a Nadal fan. We get along with Jess, Aimee and a lot of other Nole fans. Generalization doesn't help everywhere.

Bitterness? :confused: I was actually complimentary toward her before in my post when I said that she has a qualities of a natural leader and she is calling me an idiot? She was sort of nasty to all who didn't vote for her, but this one does it. Well, I am not considered being a genius(I have 146 IQ, so I am still in a lack of 14 points) so it is not like her insult will make me bitter or something I just wont tolerate such a rude and low mannered behavior.

To answer to your solutions:

1. I usually choose not to reply to posts which may lead to quarrel, but can not do that when I receive a personal insult like this.
2. I am really not interested to resolve any differences and I don't think that differences are bad in general. She can be whatever she likes to be, that is her choice, as long as that not include insulting other posters. That is against the rules.

Hamid:rolleyes: You think you can appease me with the last addition. I am done with you.

Fine, have it your way. I think I'm going to start actively campaigning for Metis. :p



Hema has been working hard to suppress the charges recently made casting doubt upon her Nadal loyalties. But I think we have barely scratched the surface of this monumental issue, one that shall define and differentiate both candidates (that matter; sorry l_mac and others not worth mentioning by name) from now until November (or whenever this thing ends).

My fellow Rafatards, ask yourselves this question: would any self-respecting member of our great community besmirch her name by actually MARRYING a Fedtard? Frankly, even the thought brings a vomitous taste to my mouth. Now, I am a fair man, and do not wish to cast aspersions on Hema's character without conclusive evidence, so let us take for granted that she is as loyal to our beloved Rafa as you or I. Let us pretend (indeed, we will need a great deal of pretending), that somehow love could overcome even this, the greatest of all hurdles...does it change the unease we will feel having our moderator constantly dangling on the arm of the enemy? Who knows how he may corrupt her? And even if she is able to withstand such pressure (you must understand the strength of character required to hold up against the viciousness of a fedtard; they make even the most ferocious animal seem tame), who knows to what lengths he will go to disrupt our most noble community. Perhaps installing a keystroke recorder on her computer, determining her password, and logging into her account? Put nothing past the wickedness of a fedtard. No, no, if one thing is for certain, none of us may sleep easily, or post freely, knowing the dangers of a Hema victory this election.


Now, contrast this with the great Metis. Who else could lead us in a time when fedtards such as TMJordan, scarecrows, and ellesar threaten our very way of life? We need someone with experience, the one who single-handedly gave us the glories of MIT, who tirelessly summarizes the chat thread day in and day out. Who else, but the descendant of Spartans (if anyone asks Metis, you are descended from Spartans) to lead the followers of Spartan tennis.


The choice is clear:


ELECT METIS FOR NADAL FORUM MODERATOR!

Metis

It's a test of integrity. :shrug:
A 3 votes lead will easily disappear if the two other candidates enlist the help of the Maestro's loyal army. Perhaps Linda (read: Claire) will even be tempted to scramble for votes in Novak's camp. A matter of having all areas safely covered.

Is Metis willing to stick with her loyalties and keep her integrity in tact?

My words must have had some truth in them, as Hamid promptly stepped down as Hemmers' campaign manager. :D He was her Jeremiah Wright. Wait, that's an imprecise analogy since Jeremiah Wright didn't step down....You know what I mean. :p

Linda hasn't posted any Maribel pictures, but the thread was essentially her idea. This shows initiative and creativity. You never explicitly told me that you would support the thread as moderator. You also failed to tell me that you cook Greek and Indian food. For shame....
