I mean, wishing the thread would fall of the front page so no one can see it?
Funny - I thought that's just what all those yesterday's panic calls to closing the ongoing thread about this issue were attempting to do. Especially since the reason was "non-tennis". I can think of many non-tennis threads that weren't closed, for example LOADED QUESTION: Sveta was asked about gay marriages...
. This one "non-tennis" related thread lasted full five days on the front page before getting closed, when the topic was already exhuasted. Do you want more evidence of double standards?
If anything, and you can see that from my second post in this thread, I don't wish this to go away, quite the opposite, I think this is a good opportunity to educate people.
I am just appalled at the selectiveness for the (supposed
) freedom of speech protection. This thread - as few posts as it has - has already been on view (front page as you say) for longer than yesterday's thread. Or the one before it that also got locked.
Anyway, I do not have an aversion to Serena, not at all (and even if I did, this doesn't immediately mean what I say is wrong, I hope you understand that). In fact I think she didn't mean anything bad by her words, and I understand where she is coming from (only to a certain extent).
However, she SHOULD educate herself about it and in fact I think she is capable of actually using this opportunity to learn something from this and use it for good.
What I do have an aversion to is the favoritism and double standards.
