On this forum the two words are not exactly the same. We have a long tradition for that. Words can be used in different ways in different places. As an example, the first hit you get searching for "Rafa" on google is the footballer Rafael Ferreira Silva, but on this forum we generally don't have to explain that we're talking about another Rafa when using the name.

And btw, an acronym is one letter for each word. So the acronym for European Union is EU. You mean abbreviation.

Sounds like a pretty good description to me.

Are you going to stop using it? I've seen you using the term "tard" to describe fanbases before. In fact very recently, in the same post in which you revealed you'd never heard of Marcelo Rios, further demonstrating your ignorance.

Re: Ask MTF Mods

Tards doesn't actually mean retarded though. It's more like an obsessive fanboy/fangirl who can't see beyond his/her favorite player

Re: Ask MTF Mods

There are way too many subforums in GM. Seriously, it's a bit too much.

I mean, is there even a choice besides Zverev? I guess Thiem could be considered but after folding to Djokovic it's kinda meh. Just give Zverev the Honorary award of Tennis Tadpole of the week
