People would probably be more inclined to post if you put up your thoughts and then asked for others opinions.

But it is so much easier to ask others to give, than to provide.
:rolleyes:

dang, I really hope this isn't a slight directed at me..is it?
I'm always thankful for what I receive
I've said as much
and even tho I'm a noob compared to a lot a y'all
I've tried to show my thanks by offering what I have
if that's not enough, well shoot..

But yet here you are with another smartass comment. Seems you are that bored.
I don't understand why you, and a few others, don't just scroll on past a thread. Then again, I don't need to understand. Just pointing out your negativity is bringing down every conversation here lately.

No, the two above, and one or two others, have nothing better to do that be keyboard warriors while on lock down. They've been shitty in other threads, as well.
Just post what you want and ignore them. People will contribute, or they wont. Don't take it personally.

thanks, you're probably right
but as corny as it sounds
I care about this place
and the people that make it
I'm not quick to write folks off
I'd rather try and understand
why people feel the way they do
try to make some kind of peace
but of course, this isn't always possible

anyway, maybe it's foolish to come here so often
and expect not to catch some shit once awhile
it's just too bad
cuz I know for a lot of people, including myself
this place is a refuge

So you propose we all walk around taking, not giving?

And yet there you are with your two cents. Like you said, feel free to put me on Ignore. I'll consider it an honor. As long as people post these "who/what's the best" trolls i'm gonna comment. BTW, what's the best tip?

Off the top of my head for the current top 5 in 9-ball I'd say, in no particular order:

Orcollo, Lee Van, Carlo, DD, and Raga (though I might still put Alex in the mix as well).

Alex should be on all lists even tho he lives in Canada

wow..you are so right
alex is one of my faves, all-around king
I honestly looked at the fargo list and just missed him
fool me once, I hope

on the flip side of that
some names on the fargo list I haven't seen play
raga, banares
I'm sure they're good tho

Wow, tough poll that includes rating some of the disciplines rarely played and some players we rarely see. I'll take a shot, but fear I lack sufficient knowledge to do the job well. It's also a safe bet that I'll just plain forget who some of the top Filipinos are in the absence of a list.
