    Anyway, let's get over this. Skaters are human and make jokes too. Especially Alex Schwazer.. I really hope she can learn from his way of taking things less serious and being focused to what's really important instead..I admire him because of his olympic gold in Bejing.. wow..

    I saw that the original thread was taken down. I think what Mathman was saying is that Carolina did an interview, and gave her answers. Then somebody edited the video and changed the questions that were asked.

    It seems like it would be very easy to do.

    Interviewer ....... How many double axels do you perform in a practice session?
    Skater .............. About 6 or 7.

    Now the video is edited.

    Interviewer ....... How many times have you had sex in a public place?
    Skater .............. About 6 or 7.

    I could see this being a comedy/satirical type show that eleonora described. That explains Carolina & boyfriend's laughing all the way through it. Humor can be certainly vary with different countries and cultures.

    Well, he should have asked me, before deleting the thread, since he doesn't even speak Italian. To think about something doesn't mean you know about something. I agree that I made a mistake not explaining this was a funny program, a satyrical program.
    But he should have asked at least. He doesn't know about the program that was broadcasted on a major TV channel and on almost all newspapers. Don't you think if the interview was slandering Kostner, she would sue the broadcaster?
    That's not the case, since she know what kind of program "Le Iene" (because it's very famous) is and what kind of questions they make.
    The newspaper "La Gazzetta" that sponsored the Olympics even wrote an article about her and her boyfriend and their habitudes.

    Anyway how could he say it was fake, since Caro does really say with her voice in German something funny. Medusa can confirm, since she speaks German. This phrase was actually said by Carolina.

    From now on, after solving the problem with Mathman (I hope we will continue to be friendly, since I'm not angry at all, but just disappointed), if I continue to stay here (I don't want to leave the forum), I'll talk just about "Lutzes and Biellmanns" as I almost always did.

    What?! How can that phony-baloney looking video be real? The interviewer is not shown asking the questions, and every time Carolina gives the next answer the tape jerks like the answer has been spliced in.

    In these days of photoshopping and video editing you can make anyone look like they are saying or doing anything. In other words, what Polymer Bob wrote above. (Example: all those videos posted by Mao fans and Yu-na fans trying to make the other skater look bad.)

    Anyway, 1000 apologies to Gio. I never thought that you had done anything wrong, just that you had been fooled by someone who made a fake video.

    I guess I am the one who ended up looking foolish. Thanks especially to eleonora.d for the details about this show and broadcast.

    By the way, the original thread was not deleted, just hidden. This is standard procedure for threads that the moderators want to discuss before deciding what to do. In this case I went off half cocked on my own. We will straighten it out shortly.

    Again, I am sorry to have acted impulsively without checking with Gio first. Gio is a valued GS member whose posts are always most welcome.

    The post itself was deleted mostly because of its content. Gio, you must understand that people of ALL AGES post on this board. While some of us found it funny, you must take a step back and realize that there are children below the age of thirteen who come to this board. Some people who posted on the Carolina thread said that people need to be less conservative. Yes, some people need to be "freer" with their words, but not at the expense of others.

    I am glad Carolina is open with her life (and was disappointed when she missed the top 10 at worlds); however, we all need to keep in mind that there are posters, and viewers who come to this board who are either not of the age, or just do not want to read that content. And at this point in the season, any time we see interview with such and such skater, we jump to that thread.

    Thanks Mathman!! Friends as before!

    I apologize too of not explaining better what kind of program this is. I was a little bit silly to not contestualise it, as eleonora.d said.

    What sport does her boyfriend do?
    He is a race walker, who won gold in Beijing this year at Olympics.

    Please talk about more than that. I've always enjoyed your posts.
