Congrats Pilke! She was my vote as well. Razz

Nice idea, Jessica B. You should also post some of the more interesting responses. You could do it anonymously or with name if they give permission.



Best,
SKM

People,

My heart feels like a heavyweight. I cannot describe the shock that ran through my body when I opened this thread and read the results.

I tried so hard to be loved around here. Always bringing joy and laughter with my nice postings and saying sweet things about my fellow players. And what did I get from all that? Not even 3 lousy votes for being the most sympathetic player online. I thought that after all these months I established myself - not only in the top rankings - but also in your hearts. Well, ha, apparently not. I guess all my postings and sucking-up to people was all in vain...

But let's get down to the heart of this problem, shall we? We all know very well that this is a racial matter. Is it my fault that I'm white? Can I help it I was born and raised in the ghetto of the South of Rotterdam, Holland? Yes, I made mistakes. But I never deliberately tried to hurt someone. Everything I did was to survive, to keep my own head above water. All the blocking, the lucky ticket draws at the end of each match... it wasn't foul play. I simply had to.

Do you want me to go? Do you want this "white trash" to take a hike? It's ok; you don't have to mince your words. Just say what you know I know you want to say. If you want me to go, then I'll go. You want me to go, don't you? Ok... hey, no problem. I'm used to being unwanted and rejected. Yep, poor little me from the big city with no future... just wanted to make some friends... wasting his sad little days behind his pc... 28 and still no girlfriend... ah, well...

(Peter slowly staggers across the New York train station with his head down and a rolled up cloth on a stick with a few possessions including a can of vegetables...)

So... this is it I guess... off to Holland again.

(While violins start playing in the background a few tears roll down his cheeks, but Peter quickly wipes them away unseen...)

Hey! I'm a big boy! Don't worry about me! I... I just wanted to say thank you for those great months I had with you guys. I really enjoyed our matches together. It was... *sniff*... was... *sob*...

Ok, listen, I have to go. There's my train.

(Peter hurries and jumps on the first train he sees, although the lump in his throat almost makes it impossible for him to move...)

Goodbye... Crying or Very Sad

Okay, I need to know.

When Jessica created the thread, it was titled "Most Sympatic Player". I saw this and wondered, "Was she trying to say 'sympathetic'?" Then I turned my Spanish thinking on and recognized a similar word: simpático. This word means 'nice', so I figured that's what she meant and went on with my life, double checking, of course, to make sure that 'sympatic' really isn't an English word.

But now I think that she's German, not Spanish, and I don't know if there's a similar word in German that she might mistake for a cognate. That, and Peter seems to have either confused it or understood it (making me the confused one).

So now, I ask, what's the deal with the word 'sympatic'?

sosy !!

once again, you enlighten me Wink

When I saw the word "sympatic", no doubt for me that this word existed !

you're right (as usual) : the german word is "sympathetic" and means "nice"

The vote was for the "nicest player" and the most "liked"

Peter, don't worry about the votes : I'm not either in the results and I deserve it !

the vote happened in a period when I was mean to everybody Laughing Laughing Laughing !
( now I can laugh about this period but at that moment, I really didn't laugh Sad )

the only difference between you and me peter, is that your "mean period" doesn't seem to have an end
Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing



one more thing, I am here "the french people voice", a vote with a possiblity to give several name would have been more representative

we all have several names in head !! Sad Sad many french players refused to vote because of that.

And percentages between 4% and 8% for the 3 first results are not representative !

Anyway : congratulations to the first ones !

Baron will give Jac_ a vote for being the meanest, most foul mouthed in the community.

Sincerely,

Baron Von Schmidt


Votes for nicest were taken long ago as you see. Guess poor ol Jac_ has become quite a bit grumpier since then. Everytime she sees her Master Baron in the forum she starts to curse and then speak German to anyone who does see the light, and likes The Baron telling them how low they have sunk.

Get a clue Jac_. Baron is likable and you had your chance (3 of them actually) where Baron tried to be nice and forgiving. You rejected them all by being mean and can we say....bitchy? Now deal with the results.
