Point taken. I hate English when it's (IT IS, !@#$%$^%) :lol: massacred to the point of saying the opposite of what it means ("I could care less", etc).

But methinks I prefer Gweneth Paltrow's little grammar number in last night's Glee to the urm, emphatic link. :lol:

I can think of three categories of posters full of venom:

1. "Mommy Police" - these are FSUers who think that it is their God-sent mission to save the children of the world from developing anorexia.They are quick to deduct rep-points to any poster who realistically (legitimately) writes that a skater might be losing points due to aesthetically-unpleasant moves or positions due to her weight, proportions, and such.

2. "Cold War Soldiers" - these are mainly North American posters born before 1970 who take any opportunity to knock-down skaters from the former Soviet/Eastern blok, especially Russians. The venom becomes stronger if it is directed at Russian Dance and Pairs teams who are perceived as threats to Canadians, although singles like Plush are also detested, especially if it appears that the ISU might be skewing things in the Russians' favor via 'presentation marks.'

3. "Cheese-busters" - fans who spew venom about TV skating shows that are a bit too commercial and/or gimmicky (more gimmicks than pure skating).

Forgot one more biggie:

UNCLE DICK BUTTON - most of us seem to like him but those who do not really spew the venom, usually in the form of "He denigrates women!"

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!

It's called debate. Just because you can't put a coherent argument together and not contradict yourself five millions times in the same thread, it does not mean that someone is being venomous when they call you on it. This is a discussion forum after all.

If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen innit. :smokin:

Rather narcissistic for you to think my post was directed at you. But, have at it, that's who you are. I think I'll go outside and walk my dog in a very quiet peaceful place.

I didn't. It was about your posting style in general. At the point when you're on the losing end of an argument you resort to "you're twisting and manipulating the words that I wrote on this board. How dare you!" :drama: :wuzrobbed


But, have at it, that's who you are.

:encore:

Glad to hear you're taking my advice. :D

Definite-

Brian Joubert opening his mouth
Patrick Chan's scores AND opening his mouth
Johnny's coyness
:P

Ok, then we have a disaster in the making. Let's say that Patrick and Brian start talking about each other again during a competition. Let's also imagine that Johnny Weir is there commenting on their "showdown." Of course, Patrick, the outspoken guy that he is, would comment on Johnny's commentary. FSU would have a long long thread on this. That would eventually have to be closed by an admin.

Unfortunately, I couldn't bring Evgeny into this imaginary scenario. Too bad.

Well, I could bring him in by using this scenario:

What with the next Olympics coming to his home country and with his possbile participation in such, EP was asked his opinion on the trash talking taking place between what are possibly two of his possible competitors in Sochi. Of course, this interview would only be printed somewhere in Russia. People on some figure skating forum (FSU ;)) then begin "discussion a la :argue:" on what it meant/didn't mean depending upon who is doing the translation and of course understanding what he meant/didn't mean in the context of what he said and of his culture rather than just taking it at face value.

How's that? All tongue in cheek of course! :biggrinbo

Gee, I thought your advice was to all live in crowded congested cities, where I would not be able to go far with my dog, and where we all could ride trains. I, on the other hand, and according to you, believe that everyone should live as I do. In a quiet, peaceful place. :P

Lots of venom at Canadian skaters in general, and European/NAmerican/Asian judges in particular at Canadian events.

Scott Hamilton and Sandra Bezic

Plushy draws alot of venom.

Any skater who uses the adjectives 'manly' or 'masculine' even once in an interview is doomed.

The Olympics seems to heighten the venom. It's like a full moon.
