    The one where he is pointing his finger or something. I have seen it upside-down, sideways, colored in microsoft paint, etc.

    They copied me in an attempt to troll me, which didn't work. Is that really so hard for your tiny little brain to comprehend?

    I confirm it. Some trolls tried to copy Nadalfan89 and just made themselves look like fools.

    Now, you know you don't have to take them seriously and you have an easy way to identify trolls.

    Agreed. It's foolish, childish and pathetic.




    Still funny though! Haw haw haw :p

    Nothing personal Nadalfan89 - I would have done regardless of who had the original ;)

    I don't get why it's so offensive.
    maybe a little annoying at the most, but in his siggy he's making it sound like they killed his family and he has to avenge them.

  14. Well NadalFan89 is a bit dramatic. Which is probably why people started to pick on him.

    The photo doesn't belong to NadalFan anyway, so he is not "the original". He probably Googled it.

    In any case, who cares? It's an avatar on a tennis message board.

    I knew someone's avatar was being copied, though i didn't know who or the reasons why, nor did i think it would hurt the oringal users feelings, and i thought it'd be quite amusing to jump right in.

    Holmes: Actually, or unofficially, there is... It's more of an automated response from the forum members, per se, than an option within the forum software here at TTTW.

    Watson: Yes, it works within the subconscious for most sane members; as soon as the letters B.U.D. are seen, there's a "block out/ignore" response. :shock:

    in all fairness, Nadalfan89 was the original then, Muzza123, me and 2 or three more jumped in the wagon in a joke, then i started the color swap and tenesse williams started the shape change... then the forum went CooCoo and there is about 30 to 50 posters with variants of the same picture.
    ...

    unfortunalely, Sentinel is still sporting the Nalbandian avatar and Blinkism refuses to get dragged in the mud...

    They copied him/her, he cried like a little baby. Made a thread about it, which got promptly deleted (LOL).

    Talk about failing.

    lol, look here buster.... lemme clear a strange misconception. The Buddha was never fat. Never. Just cos American tennis players can ... well forget that ... yeah, he walked the length and breadth ... well cut out breadth ... he walked thousands of kilometers every year, eating only a single midday meal which was not enough to fill a sparrows stomach. So basically, he was thin.

    Sadly, all these gift shops are full of Nalbandianesque Buddhas which are supposed to be lucky or whatever.

    Less talk about the '89 avatar.

    If you're curious, don't ask questions.

    Just jazz it up, and avatar it!

    Senti. i was exactly joking with the misconception...

    although you never talked with me about those subjects, you would be surprised with my views on religion. ;) and dont ask more about it in public...

    so, no sweat... or fat for that matter! :p
