    Ah, sorry. Lost in translation. My found "Russia Cup" and auto-corrected it to "Cup of Russia". Thanks!

    Um, excuse me? In what world on here did personal attacks suddenly become okay?

    I was answering criticisms levelled at Plushenko by many in this thread. Can't handle that you're wrong? Well fine, but don't have a go at me.

    He was reinstated because he broke a specific rule that allows for an application for reinstatement. I don't know of any other skaters who were deemed ineligible under that rule, which doesn't mean there aren't any. Accepting Plushenko's application is not carte blanche for anyone who has lost eligibility to apply for reinstatement.

    My question is which other skaters have broken that specific rule or any other that allows for reinstatement.

    It appears that you can't handle that people might have different opinions than you, or that you might be the one who's wrong.

    I hate people who are deliberately ignorant. Arrogant, believes he can win it all, thinks he'll come back and beat everyone, these accusations were all levelled at Plushenko in this thread and others. He gives an answer that proves all of those accusations wrong - that is humble and cautious. I point out that the answer directly contradicts a lot of the haters' accusations. And yet I am the one who is the target of "wish I knew how to shut you up" and "feck the girl annoys me". I could say the same about a lot of posters here, but I do have a sense of manners.

    Regardless of whether you agree with my choice of skaters or not, that's not on on a message board. We have PMs for that. Have a problem with me? Fine, do it by PM. There's no call for doing it in the thread.

    As I've said before, perhaps it's not the content of your posts, it's your delivery that's so off-putting.

    And people should just put posters who annoy them on ignore and not discuss who or why they annoy them on the open forum. Thank you.

    Yes, she is. And she just provided the information without berating other posters.

    You don't need to read every single post, but at least read few posts, since it is repeated 372506836512 times you are bound to get to the information.

    Maybe people stop reading them because they are filled with insults. Maybe people put that person on ignore.

    MAYBE this thread resembles the carcass of a deceased equine and MAYBE it has served its purpose, with the actual reinstatement having been made?

    I don't think you should give him credit for that, i believe that honour is 100% for Vancouverites.

    Okay, but they can't be identical if they're going to count.

    Now that's a bad joke.
