    You should just avoid those places. It's not like you'd lose much by not reading ontd_skating, anyway...

    First time I've heard of the place. Just took a look and from what I saw they aren´t opinions worth worrying about. Glass houses.

    LMAO the person posting the goose pics are so dense that all the pics they posted (except for one or 2) are from exhibitions and not competitions. there is a difference between reusing lifts that have had a full season in a competition and reusing lifts in a exhibition (which everyone pretty much does). and whenever v/m reuse lifts (in this case the goose which premiered at cannats, tessa and scott's first competition after her surgery) its because the lift hasn't had a full season (unlike d/w who reused that lift where she stands on his leg for the tango, the latin sd, and DF and the split lift where she is on his shoulder for DF and notredamedeboring) so yeah i guess its safe to tell them this: http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mbnsih95Ha1qao3r5o1_500.png or rather this: http://24.media.tumblr.com/ac77ddb6bc616e88b267589ae8ba1411/tumblr_mklchdwYpW1rjvogno2_500.jpg also i am laughing so hard at the oral sex joke. its no suprise that d/w ubers are anti-sex and since they love slut-shaming so much ;) maybe d/w should do a duggar style first love ~hairography~ fd im sure their fans would adore it! and ramen noodle curls will look so good on meryl! ;) (i however dont know how charlie would be able to pull off jim-bob's lucious ken doll hair curly hair is hard to tame) it would be great for their wholesome american image

    Lol! Looks like someone on twitter was inspired by your post https://twitter.com/georginainlove/status/327815544432640000

    Those photos are gorgeous! I hope they will be posted on daylife without watermark.

    I usually don't say much on these threads and I almost always ignore slanderous comments I read on V/M threads. I don't put all V/M in the same category because I think there is a difference between being a passionate fan and hateful towards others; I think most V/M fans aren't in the latter category. However, from what I can see from reading other threads on this board (all other skating threads, not the D/W threads), V/M fans have developed quite a negative reputation here.

    After reading a comment like the one I quote, I can see how this poster has create a name for themselves on this board by saying such hateful comments. If this was this first comment that was hateful, I probably would've ignored it. Nonetheless, I see posts like this one time and time again by this poster (and a few others). These posts have nothing to do with love Tessa and Scott's skating, celebrating their accomplishments, discussion of Stars on Ice, or speculation for next season. I honestly don't know why other posters on here aren't telling to stop, or at least give them a warning before being banned. Posts like this absolutely have to stop.

    I know what many of you are going to say - "D/W posters say this that are just as terrible..." I have read quite a few D/W uber threads and while that's where they're support lies, I haven't read any comments about V/M that are way out of line like these threads do. After going through these threads quite a bit, I've read there is quite a bit of hateful comments about Tessa and Scott on a board called Goldenskate. I don't visit Goldenskate that often and I have no idea whether or not this is true. Nevertheless, if this is true, do two wrongs make it right by saying just as negative things here? It doesn't.

    I found it amusing that they knew what some of the fans would think too, to the point of Scott saying "It should definitely create a buzz though, which is funny because that’s not the purpose of today at all." Lol.

    Parapluies I advice to just stay away from places like that. I stopped going to LJ after Worlds in Nice when they were chanting for Tessa and Scott to fall in their FD. And I'm pretty sure a majority of the posters there are under 18 (or they certainly seem like that to me anyways).

    Skatingfan12, I'm not sure how you've concluded that some of us don't try to squash things when they start getting chaotic. We do. And I myself and others have had a discussion with rainbow. But you know what it's not the other V/M fans' job to try and police what others say. If that's how they want to post or whatever that's their prerogative, they don't speak for me as a fan. But people do tend to lump all fans together and there's not much that can be done about that; it doesn't really bother me whatever kind of reputation that has been given to V/M fans is.

    I wasn't trying to group all V/M fans in the same category, and I didn't know that there have been with individual discussions with these posters. I do apologize sincerely if that's the way it came off.

    What I was trying to get across is I don't think there is enough going on to make sure this forum experience is a good one for everyone. Not only it is disrespectful to other skaters/posters involved, when a couple of posters make hateful comments, it ruins the experience for everyone - that's why I don't think it's their prerogative what they want to say and how they want to express it.

    On the same token though and if we use that argument, it works both ways. If others want to say Carmen is porn or Scott is a douchebag, it's their prerogative and we can't complain about it.

    That was more a general statement about fans being lumped together (in other sports too). Certain posts can be disrespectful towards skaters and I'm sorry if anybody has had their experience ruined in here, but like I've said it can't be expected that the rest of us will use our time censoring what one poster says (I believe you're referring to rainbow) when I don't think what anybody says is going make them change their mind about what they post. And you're also right that the people that say Scott is a douche or Carmen is porn, that's their prerogative too. But that's why I don't visit those sites anymore.

    Thank you so much for the work you put into this! And the description you give here is so perfect too.

    skatingfan12,
    While I agree that some of us ubers may be over the top we dont come over to the D&W boards and police the boards there.

    As for me I am even afraid to read the posts in the D&W threads after I discovered that some of the posters in the D&W thread are inclined towards violence and therefore carry rusty knives or blades in their purses ( Why else would you carry such an object, after all).

    I must admit though that I too find D&W boring and so repetitive with the same moves again and again and again. They may be technically proficient but then there is the matter of soul..... which I think they lack. Personal opinion of course.

    I think it's wonderful what you are trying to do. I look forward to seeing more of your posts throughout the forum fighting for this admirable goal. Don't limit yourself to just this thread, there are so many people throughout this forum who should hear your message :cheer:

    Yes, do spread your message of goodwill to men elsewhere ( Patrick Chan threads could use a whole lot of tolerance!)

    The few photos shown on this thread of their 'wedding' photo shoot are lovely. Tessa has the look of an Indian princess in some. But they look more like a catalogue picture of the bride and groom - not intimate at all. The media does like to play with this image and T&S are good sports to go along with it. It's hard to understand the obsession some fans have with a romantic relationship between them. I've never thought that skaters who were in one had any advantage over those who didn't as long as on-ice chemistry was present. And T&S are experts at keeping that chemistry between them alive. I do like to think that pairs and dancers are good friends and sometimes look for things that reinforce that thought but that's about as far as I go.

    You really shouldn't slander MarieM by calling her a D&W fan.

    She is the person who has the joke about a rusty knife in her siggy.

    I read somewhere (I don't remember if it was here or on a tumbler blog) that some D/W fans who hate V/M systematically stalk certain V/M fans and harass them.
