Isn't WTAWorld getting worse and worse?

populated by posters who don't seem to be older than 12, the WTA board is now full of senseless threads discussing stupidities like "name words for your fave player", "isn't she a goddess?" and so on...on top of that, some posters now believe that Serena can beat Hewitt, Venus would spank Haas, women hit the ball harder and the top WTA players woulld easily beat the top ATP counterparts..:rolleyes: there have always been nonsense in that board,but you could still fish out good threads and intelligent replies even on GM... unfortunately, it's getting harder and harder to find those lately...JMHO

I think it's still good. I have learned to ignore the bad threads.

that happens with any large board on any topic, and yeah if it continues to grow, the things you're describing will continue to worsen

but the thing with wtaworld is that it has a good team of moderators that enforce the rules... so regardless of its size and some of its immature threads, at least you don't have to put up with near as much shit as you do on some of the much smaller, poorly moderated boards, and you don't have to sift through a lot of outright offensive posts to find something worth reading

the fact is that the board is what its members choose to make it and if you dont like the topics that are there, you could always try starting some of your own on things that you like to discuss :) i'm sure there's other people who feel similar and would reply

You can choose where to post. I know there are a lot of useless threads, I just don't read any of them.

The only real difference between two boards - there is no Williams brothers on ATP. And the rest of the differences simply follows from that one. No race cards, no profanities, no scandals, no catfights, no freethinkers and other grandslammed..

I used to attempt to chime in with something intelligent to say every now and then on that board, but then I just got fed up and gave up.

Now I go there when I need to kill time and want to have a major brain fart.

Hey, at least I admit it :p

So true. Posters there who call themselves "Freethinkers" & "Open-minded" are usually Williams fans. & when you have one of those....
But NT there still rox

anyway: yeah it's true, some threads and posters are horrible, but that's the nature of things. there are others who seem very smart and sometimes really funny. you have to be picky.
all the moaners got a real spanking by poe yesterday, and now everybody has shut up ;) :cool:

If the Williams Fans were were the only people on that board being rude and crude, it would be a friendlier place.

I happen to remember the Sanex boards before they were the Sanex boards, and Hingis was still dominating and Steffi was still around. And I remember who's fans got the most defensive/obnoxious and stirred the most shit then. They weren't Willi fans.

We should all worry more about our own behavior and less about "who's to blame"

Some people need to lighten up, lol

Some crap threads for you are good for others, good threads for you are crap for others.

Why waste your time complaining and adding to the crap threads, pointless if you ask me

Cue bad comments over the internet, scary stuff!!!! :eek:

Heh, yeah. I've just started a masters course in a new place, many miles from most of my friends. WTAworld just started to take up too much of my time & had ceased to really be enjoyable. I was finding myself just wasting too much time posting on it, time which I now feel I should be devoting to study & keeping up with my "real" friends. Still read threads every couple of days or so, though...

that statement is a contradiction

you just put all the blame on one party and then said "it takes two to tango"

the williams fans are just as responsible for the shit that goes on over there as everyone else :)

there i am going to say: there are some posters who haven't got anything better to do then droll over their beloved ones. If they lose the world colides and if they win well you get my drift. I am sorry to say but posters like this truely make me hate certain players and i am ashemed to admit that

Rocketta

Wow no Williams brothers on the ATP but certain posters still have to bring their name up. :confused: It boggles my mind how uppity some people are and how high they put themselves on a pedestal. Get real people. The people who took this opportunity to talk smack about certain groups have shown yourselves to be just like the ones your complaining about.

Now when the argument continues or gets out of hand I'm sure its going to the Williams fans fault. :rolleyes: seems to me a lot of you get off on the arguing or else you wouldn't go out of your way to bait the people you'll talking about.

I agree with Experimentee, "It takes two to tango" stop dancing if you're so bothered by it.

I'm not the one complaining about wtaworld going down or any group of posters being the cause of it. My advice is if it is bothering you stop contributing to it. Unlike like some people I don't need to label an entire group of fans as the cause of anything.

When I don't want to argue I don't when I do want to I do. I sure don't pretend my enjoyment of anything is related to what any group says or does not say.

Like I said the people complaining about certain fans only did so to bait those particular fans in hopes of starting an argument while they talk out the side of their neck about how they are tired of this or that.

This thread was not about one poster or one group of fans but some have tried to make it that way so if this thread turns into a typical negative not worth anything kind of thread don't blame Williams fans blame those who started it.

I can't wait untill WTAWorld opens again so that these lame fan wars can go back to where they belong :D

Regardless of whether or not I think y_s is right about the reasons, if I was a Williams fan I'd want to fire back to that kind of statement. So its an opinion best left unsaid.

Chloe le Bopper
09-27-2002, 06:11 AM
I don't think ys pointed the finger at Williams fans.

I interpreted it both ways - I would guess that 75% of the crap about the Williams sisters on the other boards are started by someone who doesn't like them who decides to say something ridiculous. ("Venus is Cocky").

So should the WIlliams "haters" be defending themselves too ;)? And everyone who is neither who ends up getting into it (yours truly for example)?

;);)

I'm with you Rocketta, it is truly mind boggling. I just joined ATPworld about a half hour ago. I came to non-tennis solely to get a feel for what kind of posts and posters it has. Lo and behold, it's the same stuff. I guess the Williams sisters and their fans must be truly mesmerizing ;)

09-28-2002, 06:14 AM
Oh come on, geesh. If WTAworld is that bad, why are you all still going there and reading all those threads? The fact that some of you actually go read and contributes to them just makes no sense. If you hate the threads so much, may I suggest that you don't read them, or better yet, just don't even go to the site at all... doubt that would happen..... :rolleyes:

WTAWorld is far superior to the AOL board, where I posted for years until recently. That board used to be so much fun, but it has now deteriorated into total sludge. :(

Well here's hoping WTAWorld comes back up and we can all go back to our love/hate relationship! :D
