Fair point Buhweet, the news thread went completely off-topic into what most readers who were not participating would probably consider fairly boring social talk for several pages. So I can imagine it would be annoying for anyone wanting to read about the US Open draw to have to get through that.

I've now split that discussion and moved it here. It wasn't done earlier because moderators are advised not to split discussions from news articles as it changes the front page of the website in a bad way until the process is complete. I had to remove this news article first to split this conversation without causing an issue on our home page.

Hey, anyone want to wake up the moderator?!!! After 3 pages of this pubicent yadda yadda, from supposedly "highly educated" folks, this is about to induce projectile vomiting in me!! (That would really screw up my keyboard!!!) Thought this was an Andy Murray tennis blog? I'd have to guess from the above praddle that either his tennis isn't that interesting or that this blog is merely a social page for Murray suck ups. I know that after your usual Saturday night drunken debauchery you all aren't yet awake, but when you finally recover enough to read, the Open starts tomorrow......got any news on that?
You do make a fair point about the thread going off topic, but I really don't think there was any need for the insults.

Oh, I but I do! It really put me off my corn flakes!! I thought it was a bit ironic that someone claiming to be from "Shallowville" (???) was so shallow. Maybe I was mistaken?

Why would that be ironic? Someone claiming to be from Shallowville is someone who admits they are shallow in one way or another.

Buhweet.  I'm not sure how or why I seem to have offended you.  confused  You were absolutely right to point out we had all gone off topic.  However, you need to remember that a lot of us on here have known each other for a long time, and many of us have formed friendships which, sometimes get in the way of the tennis blog thing.  I'm just not sure where all your bile is coming from.  no

What a sanctimonious character, register on the 27th and then instantly start insulting people who have known each other for 2-3 years who are simply digressing from topic. lmao

Of course.  You are very welcome here, but you need to get used to the fact that we banter away as friends and steer off topic at times.  Smile

Vinnie/Clydey please don't turn this into some off-topic battle of personalities, this thread is really difficult to try and split so would be so much better if it didn't need to be.

I have read enough of your stuff to see you can give it out but can’t take it.

And you're here to sort me out, right? You're giving me a taste of my own medicine. You're a real hero. lol

He has no personality. He's like a one-legged man in a kicking contest.

Two types of off-topic...

Off-topic but still about Murray
Off-topic about absolutely nothing relevant.

The latter is what needs proper attention.
