    ... and many others till I stopped posting in the Racquets and other forums since the experts are often 12-year olds like you.

    LMAO.

    I'm going to make a bold prediction and say this thread will never eclipse the 'who do you want to see hit' thread.

    This thread is a Paint Job.

    we should have a TW poster bracket, seeing as no one is pleased with my inclusion by post count

    128 posters or even 256, see who rains supreme at the end

    With such a climate on TT, I predict a cloudy debate, with maybe a deluge of protests, a precipitous climb to the top for the winner, and very probably a watery grave for the losers. ;)

    Teffy shows a lot of promise, but he doesn't stick around here much.

    I've really been SURESHing lately but LeeD is looking very in form and strong. Nostradamus has started some very provocative threads as well. Very strong era heading into the YEPF.

    LeeD has incorporated variety into his game and is no longer just a Tips section specialist.

    Sentinel continues to do well despite the disadvantages of never having played tennis in his life.

    Not really a GOAT list, but a few personal favorites:

    - krosero, for his nearly superhuman objectivity
    - pc1, a rare model of civility amid the madhouse
    - Moose, TT's resident statistician (honorary hat tip to slice serve ace)
    - Limpinhitter, the (good) class clown
    - ClairHarmony formerly known as !Tym, simply and utterly voluble and inimitable

    And though I don't think they post here as often, borg number one and zagor deserve special mentions for their openness to opposing POVs.

    Among the sadly departed, Datacipher was a technical and historical wizard, ksbh almost as unique as ClairHarmony, and while he was a little before my time, gj011 seems to deserve his legendary status.

    Finally I must pay a tribute of sorts to Joe Pike, who was truly in a league by himself. He put all the fanatics of the past, present and future to shame.

    I don't like Sentinel. he insults other posters. I voted for LoveGame. She is probably the only poster that doesn't throw insults at others like so many teenagers in this forum do. At least, i hope they are teenagers and not adults. hate to think grown adults would act the way they do.

    I totally agree with you. I like Love Game too. Now about that Senti chap, he only makes harmless digs at people, and usually banned posters. So they aren't really around. Or are they ?
