So mods, hi there.

We get the message.

I very specifically get the message.

Before you whack this thread take a moment’s pause to consider the predicament you’ve just put the whole forum in.

Am I or anyone else never allowed to create a thread on Serena again?

Surely that’s not possible.

Let’s try Round III
NO FUN
ZERO TOLERANCE IN EFFECT ON LEVITY

We all get the message.

So ummm, huh, turns out there’s not much to discuss after all these salient points have all been hung and quartered.

Not by me anyway.

Time to call it an evening.

Have fun y’all!

i hadn't noticed any blowback on the serena threads from the forum overlords.. the number of threads is pretty high.. this was a truly galvanizing story.. historic,, a slam final gone awry by over the top antics.. a full game penalty.. it almost never happens.. the controversy growing by the day..the powers that be defending her..only to walk it back a bit..the cartoon and all that fervor.. tennis is usually about the tennis.. this was so much more..poor sportsmanship and tennis usually clash and this was no different. will be remembered for years to come..

That’s what I figure too.

It might just simply be a quirk that we aren’t able to have Serena threads titled II, III, IV etc today - it’s about the only explanation for why they keep getting deleted.

The first Serena thread had evolved into something that had nothing to do with Serena, that's the only reason I posted on it or that it was enjoyable. I imagine it's also why it was deleted, tennis wasn't even discussed it turned into a lighthearted chat session.

3rd time ? Isn't that worth some sort of penalty ? :D

The weather forecast predicted showers in my area.
Are you trying to get this thread deleted with subversive talk of precipitation?

Unfortunately this one is turning back into a Serena thread. Serena threads suck d__k. I'm out of here.
By solemn decree from above, this and all other Serena threads may only freely engage in well, Serena d__kery.

Don’t worry mods.

If this one devolves into people talking about dangerous topics like food and weather I’ll create a Serena IV.

I got your back.

@Hydrocella, just in case you are banned, and we can’t communicate for some time, I wanted to tell you that I enjoyed your posts very much.
Thanks!

I’m sure it’s nothing, pfft.

A bunch of us were being a bit noisy earlier, things have quieted down a bit.

All Serena, All day.

Hear, hear.

Hopefully this isn’t the end of Hydro, enjoyed his presence here very much. Bamos Hydro.

John Cena is still the greatest athlete of all time.

Hey guys, come on.

Surely just creating a thread titled “Serena III” isn’t a punishable offence, right?

That’s just crazy talk.

uh @Hydrocella , luv ya, but just wanted to point out: theres an analogy to be made, that the way the mods are acting (that you're complaining about), is the way Ramos was acting officiating the women's' USO final!

being an overt stickler to rules to the point of hurting what the rules are meant to protect!

She has been good for bringing tennis to limelight. WTA has been talked about a lot more than the ATP the last few days...
This is very true. Great point

It gets lost amidst the negativity but the WTA has been more in the spotlight than the ATP the last week or so.

LOL.

You’d be absolutely right, excepting I’m no Serena here. This one completely follows the letter of the law in following the rules.

No talk of anything but Serena from me.

Yeah, Brock Lesnar's move is called F5 so this was Cena mocking it. Forced to change after a while because of the PG movement.
Thanks.

I wonder why it is I suddenly remembered a giant FU?

Hopefully it won’t lead to an Attitude Adjustment.

Anyway, back to Serena (sorry, minor diversion, it’s a terrible habit).

Well folk, this was...interesting.

This time will definitely call it a night.

Mods, please do the right thing by all these good people that care about the community here. Fine, it was off topic, move it to Odds and Ends, no?

I promise you this, everyone in there was getting along. Heck, much of the old resentment and bickering was being dispensed as people were getting to know each other. I encourage you to read it when you have a moment.

This is the best damn forum.

Many of us know it.

I wish you knew it too because sometimes it feels like you don’t.

One last picture?



G’night everyone.

Serena is the best athlete of all time. She is a role model that inspires us all, because of her ethics, her values, her defense of justice.
She is a fighter for the rights of women, mothers, ethnic minorities, and all evils.
We can’t be more proud for any athlete that ever lived.
It took me some time to realize, but now I got it.
And above all she is a mother!

What rule is that? The first rule of TT is you do not talk about Serena? :confused:

So far, so good.
Serena III thread has been alive for more than 8 hours. Seems we have learned our lesson and we are behaving much better.

All this Serena-daughter business seems to be having some kind of unquantifiable effect - we’re endlessly spawning legacy Serena II, III, IV...threads.

Some decades back 8 was enough, perhaps in this more demanding day and age, even for celebrities like Serena, III is enough and everyone understands this.

Master Yoda always taught that "always two there are; no more, no less." Kind of treading uncharted waters here with the trilogy.

Nevertheless, others assert that "good things come in threes."

I'll go with... positive takeaway, whatever the outcome.

In the future, same as The Godfather saga, we will be discussing which Serena thread was better: I, II, III, etc.

Nice analogy!

Serena I was the best in my mind. There was no objective, pure joy emerged from the process of creation.

It felt inclusive.

Serena III was self aware at the time of its creation.

By this point in the trilogy the only people that can really enjoy it is the original audience.

This feels exclusive.

I have asked TTW mods to add a running timer at the upper right corner in the current Serena thread title to show the time it’s in the air.
LOL.

We all recently saw the worthiness of countdowns in tennis.

Good idea though!
