That link goes to nowhere useful. Can you do better? And perhaps not based on anonymous hearsay?

Thanks, Pyrrho. Neither the video nor CBSsports links in the article seem active/accessible, and the article itself doesn't say anything about Ms Williams threatening to kill the lineswoman?

Neither here nor there. But, sure thing, there's certainly no special place for the constant offerings of georgies false claims and hurtful untruths. IMHO, injured people and grieving parents/families/friends should not be maligned by some turd who craves attention on the interwebz.

There are too many idiots on the Internet to fix them all, but it's still a fun hobby. ;)

A passtime, or hobby, is something you do for fun between eating and shitting.

Yeah, sure, I get worked-up sometimes. Something I'm passionate about. Say my piece. And cool off.

Not some {!#%@} tennis player, tho'!

Like Pyrrho is gonna ban someone over a sports dispute.

That was an unjustified call to the forum gods, Scrambles.

I'm sure Serena, with her million$, doesn't give a {!#%@} about what Gorgeous has to say about her. She doesn't need you to white knight for her.

A (known) person named and defamed - to all appearances, she made no public death threats.

Like Pyrrho is gonna ban someone over a sports dispute.

Why should the only possible action be a ban?

That was an unjustified call to the forum gods, Scrambles.

I'll let the forum gods decide.

I'm sure Serena, with her million$, doesn't give a {!#%@} about what Gorgeous has to say about her. She doesn't need you to white knight for her.

I'm sure you're correct about Ms Williams and equally sure that that's not what I am doing.




Now where to? Mars is probably getting too crowded soon.

Fusion.

Terraforming planets is impossiblr.

But we could survive and thrive in colony ships.

We do it now, or it never happens.

That's such an Asian thing.

My best mate's mum used to scoot about all over the house in fluffy slippers. She was polishing the floor and cooking delicious dinner at the same time.

She would insist I eat dinner there, and then I'd get in trouble from my mum for being full and not eating her dinner.

And I grew into a tall strong man.

Two dinners and two mums.
