After checking out the C&P thread I'd add Tanith Belbin to the venom magnet list. I'm not sure whether to :wall: or :rofl:. By this time next week I'm sure that someone will somehow find a way to pin global warming on her as well.

Well, that ought to be easy to do since she is pretty hot. :D Yes, I have a slight girl crush on Tanith. :lol:

It's seems to me there's quite a bit of venom when one of the "dead horse" Olympic match-ups are brought up (S&P v. B&S, Tara v. Michelle, Nancy v. Oksana, etc.). Those can get pretty nasty.

wedding threads

Seconded. These always devolve into people being hated on for 1) getting married, 2) being married, 3) daring to feed anyone at the wedding reception, 4) accepting any sort of wedding gift ever from anyone (greedy bastards!) 5) inviting anyone to the wedding.

Followed by straight male singles skaters (How dare they!), $peedy, and Scott Hamilton.

For me, it's when posters come down on a skater for having gained weight. There are enough weight issues inherent in skating, that skaters certainly don't need to hear from fans that they look fat.

And my second, but not less than, is the issue of corruption in the sport. It exists, it's no better with the new judging system. And it's time that figure skating and the ISU worked this out. Separate speed skating from figure skating and find a way to sanction judges so that judging becomes more fair. Pay them, fine them, whatever, but something should be done.

I have other skating related issues, but they are not necessarily related to venomous topics on this board. So, I'll keep them to myself.

Carmen, I used to have a little issue with Tanith. I felt that she always had amazing presentation, and is clearly beautiful. But, I thought she was lacking in technique and that she and Ben were often overmarked. I thought that she was being marked on looks rather than technique. I always felt that Ben was a much stronger technical skater. She, however, improved tremendously. Sadly, at the point where I thought they did deserve the top marks, they started getting undermarked. Skating!

These are my thoughts exactly! Tanith's technique really did improve especially once she got with Natalia Linichuk. She was not so skinny with little bit more muscle and much stronger in lifts and overall skating. This sport is just crazy sometimes.

There are so many things that make me personally rageful but I hate, hate, hate tights over boots! :angryfire So terrible! It makes the girls look like they have tumorous growths all around their ankles and should be taken to the specialist forthwith. (The only skater I will ever overlook this for is Albena Denkova because she is awesome in every way. ;) )

ETA: Didn't there used to be a "Say Anything" thread? Thinking about what brings out the venom made me think I need that thread. :saint:

Haha, so true!

Someone explain Kristen Frasier, because I want to be fully in-the-know about all things venom-worthy.

Oh, and I noticed that my teeth suddenly felt pointy at Oksana Baiul's 1994 mention... :D :EVILLE:

This forum generally promotes hateful behavior and commentary in the guise of "wit and humor." Such comments reflect more on the posters' self-loathing rather than the actual skaters - A reason why I only have 400 or so posts since 2002.

Just thought of something else that brings out venom - When poster #2 decides that they know what poster #1 means better than poster #1 does. The twisting of words and manipulation - venom producing!
