You make some good points, and there's no denying.Anyone with a C rating, is that rating no matter those opinions of play.

However, a C rating can be manufactured by various sandbagging strategies, smart defaulting, timely line adjustments etc. However the very 'objective' opinion making of collective TTW wisdom based on intelligent visual clues is far superior, imo
Their thought process seems to run like this:Most won't post video of themselves because they don't want to face the reality of what they look like actually playing and the MO of most matches in general. They will continue to tell you any particular rating above 3.5, isn't so based on that perception of their own play or watching too many highlight videos only showing the good points and not the DFs, serve points, and serve +1 that usually dominate a match.
I won't post a video of myself because I like anonymity! Besides, there ain't anyone on here who can help me in any way I can't help myself and if I need help I'll make use of a coach, albeit I've good:bad ratio of coaches of 1:5 thus far and the good one is at a club 100 miles away from where I now live. I could do with a good coach now to tidy up some ragged ends in my game that are probably behind some of the wild swings in form I'm susceptible to but it's not really about technique at this stage, it's about practicing certain categories of shots that rarely crop up in normal play but are costing me against better players.Most won't post video of themselves because they don't want to face the reality of what they look like actually playing
