Does anyone remember gj011/goyeji? Now THAT was a trolll, NSK and these guys there days are weaksauce
Yup. That guy had flair, style, originality. This guy is bland, tedious and devoid of humor. That guy could rile people up. This guy is just mildly annoying.

Something tells me this will be a stop-start affair that will be finished on Thursday. :(
Don't know who that will favour.

Berdych. The only way Fed doesn't win is if Berdych serves lights out and has his flashes of brilliance on the right moment, while Federer usually grinds Berdych down. Recuperation and time to think things through favour Berdych.

I disagree. NSK is the embodiment of the internet troll.

I don't know what you are talking about, but NSK is highly annoying to most people. I don't respond to him, but there are so many people who get so angry at him.Seriously, If I compiled all the butthurt responses to trolling by NSK and printed them, it would take more paper than printing out wikipedia.

NSK is the GOAT troll because:
A. According to veterans like Zagor, the guy has been trolling non-stop since 2008
B. He makes troll posts that genuinely anger people. If he just started threads like "LOL! Federer sucks.", no one would take him seriously
C. Most trolls lose it when they get flamed, but NSK hardly ever responds with insults.

Ah you missed the gj011 era Sid.

The thing about him was that he was actually a pretty decent poster who into full troll mode as time went along on these boards. He also said the funniest phrases something which NSK lacks and had much more "style". NSK just repeats some stats about Nadal ad nauseum, sadly it's not even entertaining trolling.

Actually it's funny how many decent posters devolve into flat out trolls over time on this forum. Most recent example I can think of being Evan77. This place robs people of their sanity :shock:.

Bleak. It's the second match in the 7 pm session. Probably get pushed to tomorrow and i doubt there will be a night session at all.

To the other poster who asked when it is, should be around 8:30 or 9 pm local time as per original schedule, but the entire schedule is delayed and will be changed/postponed.

The chance of rain during day is 60% and in the night is 20%. So there is a high chance of this match happening unless the morning matches push federer out of his slot.. fingers crossed..

regarding the troll stories.. thats true.. Gj011 was just mind blowing.. sometimes I felt like I would throw my laptop to the wall when i read his posts.. brilliant brilliant troll.. but then he was atleast good at what he did.. this 63 61 60 guy is neither a troll not is he a decent poster.. a case of lost identity probably... or a school kid.. :-D

It takes a good troll to get people annoyed and frustrated, it takes a great troll to get people really angry and bewildered.

I've been here a while and seen trolls come and go, this era is easily the weakest for trolls. NSK's schtik is getting old fast and sureshs can't seem to keep it together anymore. It was guys like nadal_freak, gj011 and gamesampras that really made 08-09 the golden era of TT trolling. Gamesampras seems to be back, but he's way past his prime.

I also dearly miss conquistador, the monologues the guy pumped out about Fed were impressive and sickening at the same time

gj011 was the worst poster, he wasn't funny at all. NSK is actually funnier. I can't consider myself a better troll though because I actually have a brain. gj011 era was great, but not because of him, but rather because of the ones fighting him, they drove him insane.

No, he wasn't. He was even less intelligent than NSK, and that's hard. He made more stupid remarks than sureshs, and that's hard. Fed fans back then were owning him though, left and right they banned his fake accounts lol.

Yes, this guy knows what he's talking about. Gj was one in a million. I kinda miss him actually. GameSampras isn't really a troll, imo. I don't think his intention is to rile people up. I think he genuinely feels obligated to be an apolgoist for his favourite player, and it drives him crazy if he feels his guy is slighted.

That guy was always an illiterate clown. He was only held up as a "decent poster" until he turned against Federer. When he did, it was knives out for him.

I notice how the only trolls people identify both as amusing ones and obnoxious ones are Nadal fans. No mention of the numerous pro-Federer trolls who frequently enter and re-enter with new accounts, making several troll threads on their "first day", racking up thousands of posts per month. A recent example is this "Zarfot Z" character. The reason being, of course, is that all but the most odious of pro-Federer trolls are not characterized as "trolls" at all.

Oh man, how could I forget Fed_Fan2009?! That guy racked up a 120 post-per-day average at his peak. The guy really wasn't that great a troll, probably along the lines of buckethead, but the sheer volume of garbage posts he found a way to type up everyday was what made him unique.
