    In these categories
    1) most heated "which XXXXXXX is better" discussion (where XXXXXX =racquet/string/player/playersgirlfriend/doublesplayer/playersdog/etc)
    2) equipment porn (best/rarest/most pictures)
    3) most essentric (ttw secrets, discussions that can only happen on ttw and not anywhere else in the universe)
    4) funniest (posters getting owned, tennis jokes, absurdity, anything funny)

    I am members on several lifestyle, automotive, video game, and firearms forums but the ttw takes the cake for most knowledge, volume, intensity, inflated egos (yes, even more than video game ones), and obscurity in terms of content found EASILY.

    Federer photoshopped is my favorite thread, there's this one epic picture depicting Djokovic's bruised and battered body from grinding on hardcourts and Nadal injecting steroids into his broken knees while Uncle Toni watches in agony as Federer is relaxing with his 17 grandslams.

    Prime Obi-Wan vs. Prime Anakin thread by Dedan's Penthouse. Epically awesome until Squall Leonheart ruined it by taking it too seriously. Also, any thread with BreakPoint just for comedy's sake!

    The one that was closed about Nadal's strings not snapping back. Featured BP denying snap-back having any effect on spin. Comedy gold, name calling, heated posts... What else?

    this can't be allowed ot be forgotten

    'Oscar at the Fair' had it all


    but for pure comedy, anything TTMR does, basically.

    I find it incredible that people STILL don't realise he is trolling them after all this time, he practically tells them!

    As I poast, my WorkhorseGHOAT sits on top of my dome resting after shielding me from the hot Florida sun. Yes, that was another brainchild of the immortal JoelDali that perished at the hands of the mods. I cried a few tears after its oblivion.

    Around the same time as the infamous western grip thread, there were some good Frodo threads too. I miss some of the characters from that era. It was back before they closed rants and raves.

    There have been many memorable threads but "posters who you want to see hit" comes to mind first, specifically this post in particular where we finally acquired video evidence of LeeD's mad tennis skills. It was a historical day and some posters compared it to witnessing the loch ness monster. Furthermore, sonnec spiced up the thread by claiming his volleys are better than Nadal's.

    Jolly shenanigans were chaotic as well -- Sup/drak and Mid Atlantic team vs. Jolly and his Long Island puppets.

    No, he wasn't banned...the thread was erased bcoz someone poasted inappropriate (cheesecake) graphic material, as I understand. It's been almost two years since it all happened so I don't remember the specifics. It's a shame bcoz there was a lot of good stuff on it that went "pfffft".

    The "Guys Only" thread, of course.

    There was also a trainwreck of a Sania Mirza thread that devolved into a giant anti-Islam screed--has Mahboob posted here since then? Not one of the shining moments in TT history.
