    I don't understand people like you coming in here and making a post like this. What's your point exactly? Nobody is forcing anybody to come in here. What do you expect us to say? Good for the D/W thread then for not being as crazy as this one.
    And I honestly wish you wouldn't make posts like these. As you can see it just gives people more ammunition. It's exhausting.

    With all due respect Doris you are not an admin here. If we are going to get lectured or scolded I'd rather it be by an admin of this board.

    I am pretty sure raibowkisses was being satirical (as in satirizes people who call V/M's Carmen Fifty Shades of Grey Carmen or Twilight Carmen) with that Duggar post that's how I analyzed it. I don't know about that person on twitter I just report the stuff I see on my feed.

    Here's the thing, taf, lurkers, DW's internet moms and dads, etc. etc. Why are you even here? We have made it VERY clear that we do not agree with certain things that are said, but aren't we adults here? You have your share of out of line posters, we have ours. Big fat deal. I choose to ignore them and move on. I guess ignoring something that's said it's a pretty clear sign of distance. What do you want us to do? Chastise people as if they were our children or something? If you don't like it, ignore it. Why even come here anyway? Now, don't get all offended because I come here and say things like, "Davis and White haven't the skills nor the level of Virtue and Moir" because that is MY opinion and I am not offending anyone by stating it. Go to your little thread, we stay in ours and let's ignore the nasty comments. Isn't that how adults behave anyway?

    Recycled jokes. I told you before, if you're going to be our resident troll, you must try to stop recycling your jokes. Unless, of course, you think recycling is part of your charm. Wait, you might actually think so! ;)

    Thank you! And thank you again. We're all being painted a certain way because of what a few posters here say. Like I've said why should I waste my time trying to correct them all the time? I'm here to discuss Tessa and Scott. And that doesn't mean we're excusing their behavior (trust, I've had many a conversations with rainbow and it didn't work so I stopped worrying about it). I'm sorry for all offended parties, but it is what it is.

    Iggie when do you think you'll have the post up? We need some light in this thread.

    But it is nice to read their thoughts on us! I am glad we can give them something else to be obsessed about :lol:

    Can't wait to read it!

    No it's not. Not at all. I don't find it amusing. I find it draining, I really do.

    Thanks iggie! And marikat.

    What made you decide that I am a D/W fan? I challenge you to find one post of mine where I gush about either team. My post wasn't directed at trolls, it was directed at the everyday mean-spirited posts that I see from regulars of this thread. No one cares if you think V/M is the 2nd coming & D/W isn't fit to kiss their robes. But it gets tiresome to hear all the negativity & the down-right cruelty from this crowd. FWIW I don't happen to think Meryl is pretty (I think she's attractive) but I don't feel the need to post about how ugly she is. What's the point? If you say it enough times, will she get prettier?

    Why am I here? V/M ubers aren't the only people in the world to love ice-dancing. V/M are World champions - did it ever occur to you that other people (i.e. people who don't worship at the shrine) might want to know what is going on with them? And as far as I know, none of you are board owners, so this is not your special sanctuary.

    This is true.

    I'm not scolding you; I'm informing any posters here who feel powerless against posts in the D&W thread. You can report them, if they are against FSU guidelines.

    There are posters here who have felt that "nothing could be done" about a poster in the V&M thread. And there is; you can decide either to agree with them or to report them.

    Frankly, I had no idea until Prancer posted that FSU had any rules that were written down. It was a shock. I read them; hence my post.

    Prancer already did that though and she is an admin here.

    I want to reiterate this. While I don't think what people post is against the rules or anything, it's rather disappointing how this thread can morph from a V/M celebration and more a D/W takedown. It's not going to make me leave or anything, but it does temper my own enthusiasm for posting here. It's not about lecturing. It's about setting the tone you want to engage in.

    i'm taking a break from editing to say ... if you all just want news about tessa and scott, then follow my blog and ignore the thread. consider it an extention of this thread and the v/m fan communities around the world. i post all the information there and do my best to just celebrate and learn about tessa and scott. if you want to stay on fsu and read about v/m in a way that's guaranteed to be respectful towards d/w, then resurrect the d/w and v/m love thread. as it stands, this is a v/m thread, only.

    there is some drama here, but if you actually follow it, you'll see that it's at the heart v/m fan community and it's filled with incredible information and discussion so you're not giving us enough credit at all.

    Dude, where did I call you a uber? Nowhere. It does get tiresome, however, to get lectures from people who never come here or have only browsed for a couple of pages and claim to feel offended about things the majority of us have no control over. I don't give a damn about DW's looks or VM's for that matter. Do I think comments on the athletes' personal lives, looks, etc. are invasive? Hell, yes. But that is my opinion, I can't come after every single person who posts a cruel comment, now can I? It's their business, that's my point. So people call a skater ugly, others call another skater fat, what do you want me to do? Join their high school? No, I am sorry, I won't. So I ignore them. It does bother me, though, how people come here constantly attacking us as if we were all evil incarnate. I invite you to read farther than two pages and see that most of us spend time here discussing the skating, which, in my opinion, is what really matters. No, this place isn't an exclusive sanctuary, I, myself, do not agree with everything that is said, how could I? Social interaction works that way everywhere, as I am sure you know. But it would be pretty damn draining if I came here, like a police officer, to tell people what they can and cannot say. What do I do? I simply ignore them. If I can't take the heat and develop a thick skin, why come here? That's why I asked, why come here anyway? Just ignore the nastiness if it offends you so much.

    Lol. This is just fantastic. What do you people want us to do?! So you're not addressing the trolls, but the general posters in this thread? What has anybody (minus the few people that do post things to get a rise out of people) said that is slanderous to D/W except give in-depth analysis on why they feel V/M are the better skaters? That's all I see in this thread, but somehow that bothers people too. Honestly at this point I don't think you guys would be happy unless we start saying V/M and D/W are equals and should be trading titles back and forth. Well some people don't think that and they want to voice why. Why is that a problem? And I have no idea what Meryl's looks has to do with this discussion right now.

    Ugh I am so sick of all this bull.

    What does this mean? So not reporting now means we're agreeing with what's being said? Come on, that's really unfair.

    No, it just means that if you feel posts on the D&W thread are against the guidelines, you should report them. If you feel posts on the V&M thread are against the guidelines, you should report them.

    If you feel they are OK, you shouldn't.

    What Prancer's post meant to me is:
    1. There are guidelines.
    2. The admins don't read the uber threads.
    3. If people who post in these threads expect the admins to fix something, they will have to report it to the admins, or nothing will change.

    It would be nice if all fans of dance felt welcome in either thread, IMO, even if they disagreed with the conten. They should not have to fear that people will be blanket insulting the fans themselves.

    Doris, I think you have more than made your point. Now you are repeating. I think we are mostly tolerant here, there will always be some in every forum who can't restrain themselves. This is the VM uber thread can we please get back to enjoying everything about the skaters we believe are the best in the world
