    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.

And so they decided to do it anyway and released an article emphasizing the fact that they're portraying on-ice characters, and reinforcing that no, they're not dating. I'm so glad they did though. They're gorgeous!
    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.

    Maybe it's not important, but I noticed that in that picture where Scott fixes Tessa's hair, there are two pegs (is that correct in English?) on picture's right side. I guess, dress was too big for her.
    Btw, you can see some pics without watermarks in this tumblr post - http://oh-nastya1.tumblr.com/post/48...o-getty-images

    I almost forgot what I really came to post!

    Thanks to everybody who provided me with quotes about Tessa and Scott. It was a project I initially wanted to do for myself, to just have a little word document with some of the quotes from Krylova, Zhulin etc handy so I know who said what. When I realized there were more than I bargained for, I decided to ask iggie to put it on her blog, because I was inspired by how she meticulously archives everything. When she announced the book the other day, I kicked it into high gear and created a 28 page document of quotes from the best skaters in the world to share with them.

    Never got the stuff on Cousins from Worlds, but it's ok. He said amazing stuff at they Olympics, that Mahler was the new Bolero and V&M were like G&G combined with T&D.

    It's not too late if anyone has more cause it is eventually going on iggie's blog once I write up little bios of all the skaters, etc.

    Evgeny Platov, is, by far, the biggest uber of V&M. He first noticed them at 2005 JW, saying they'd win gold someday. He predicted their medal at 2008 Worlds, and later in 2008 when asked who could repeat his two gold medals he said V&M. Mahler gave him goosebumps (Zhulin too), and he thinks staying til Sochi makes them super champions. I also learned that Krylova is obsessed with Scott and Zhulin, Katsalapov, and Morozov have mancrushes on him. Ilinykh and TAT are Tessa ubers. Shabalin had to begrudgingly admit that he had hoped they'd ripen after Vancouver, but that they deserved to beat him. Schoenfelder, Zhulin, and Staviyski wuzrobbed them. Everyone loves Carmen, most especially Navka, and many skaters commented that as technically good as they are, they are artists first, and make you forget all about the elements.
    Thank you so much for the work you put into this! And the description you give here is so perfect too.

    Tatiana Tarasova on Tessa:
    "Tessa Virtue - a diamond in figure skating. In a very expensive cut.
    She's the strongest technically among all current females in the ice dance. She has unique, stunning skating skills. This is a real gift from God."
    From: Russian Fugure Skating Magazine December 2012. Article about Tessa-Scott - page 48.

    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

    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.

    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).
    This is scary.

    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.
