In general this is a more knowledgable and friendly forum. I've never had the need to check out any other forum, I hardly read anything other than what is posted here, people are so nice here. i feel I belong here more so than any other forum....I don't think I am a registered member anywhere else either.

this is my, by far, the favorite board. it feels like home. I started posted on MTF before I discovered tennis4you. I just can't stand when people attack one another just because they don't agree on a subject. some kids simply come to these big boards (MTF, TW etc) to simply release their frustrations by being evil to other posters. lot's of these guy actually know nothing about tennis but whatever.

I'm with you Falc.
Most of the folks here are decent, though some of my favs have left.
For the most part, it's a great group except for the owner.
I can't stand that guy!

He's probably just sitting around the house waiting for those checks from T4U to come rolling in.

Alex, i am NOT spanish, I am NOT in love with rafa...he is nice though  :)

MT, I agree that a lot of our old guys have left, I miss their presence too, but this has only resulted in people like us posting lesser and lesser. That's not good for the forum.

Exactly what do you mean by 'this'??? :confused1:
I don't understand what you mean.

Personally, I think some 'tennis' fans choose not to participate because of the incessant chattering and bickering of some fanboys.  With only a limited amount of time to check in here, I personally don't like having to wade through seemingly endless posts and threads by fanboys in search of interesting content.  As I stated before, I prefer quality over quantity.

But hey, that's just me.

But hey, that's just me.

I like quality but I also like a lot of passion in posts even at the expense of quality.
 
This means if someone says their player will destroy so and so, I like that even if it's pure fanboyism at work.
 
Then I can get where the poster is really coming from and what he feels about a player.
 
Things can get heated as many have a lot of feelings invested in a player, but this is important to have these kind of posts.
 
Posters can then have high or lows and not some straightjacket placed on their posting, it kills the passion.
 
Look at the fanboys of old, the posts where at an all time high, the main poster got banned and the posts dropped off the map. It was boring to say the least since and people left in droves.

But that's just how I see it from this side of the keyboard.

I guess that's where we're different and it's really ok.

1.  I never sacrifice quality for quantity.
2.  To me, as a tennis fan (as opposed to a fanboy), it's not constructive discussion (or even fun) to have repetitive 'passionate' posts/threads.
3.  The only members I noticed leaving were fellow fanboys & girls who only participated in the mindless chatter.

It's fine if y'all like that stuff.
Just not my cup of tea.

Not talkin' 'bout here, just in general.

I come here for a bit of tennis news and talk tennis in general.

Never been much of a player fan though I did like watching Sampras play.
Wouldn't say I was a 'passionate' Pete fan though. ;-()
