Double standard of mods

Why is this thread closed?
http://www.tennisforum.com/showthrea...4#post45747954

and not this?
Who is greater: Kvitova or Ivanovic?

Both are similar and yet one is closed (most probably some posters are just jealous Ana losing the poll while the other one she's winning).

Re: Double standard of mods

Did you ever think yours was closed BECAUSE it was similar. The other has lots more posts, whether as yours was created very recently. Mods probably could've merged it rather than deleted it though

It was not deleted or merge, they just close it.

I'm sure there's a lot of threads around which also have similar thread titles yet, none of them got closed.

I'm sure mine got reported somehow since the Ana fans obviously don't like it when she loses the poll.

But they don't report the other one which also compares both Ana and Petra.

And mods shouldn't close it just because the fans doesn't like it and report the thread.

I wonder how is mine considered sole intention of bashing a player or a fellow poster or provoking fights between fans. Since it's just comparison of players career like many other threads do or even comment on certain players comment, such as the following just to state a few:

How Many Slams Will Canadian Beauty Eugenie Bouchard Win Her Career?

WWW? Wimbledon F: Petra Kvitova vs Eugenie Bouchard

Bartoli or Sharapova: who's the third best active player on grass?

Alexandra Stevenson: "I have a Grand Slam title in me"

I'm sure there are posts which bash the players/posters/tour etc. but it's not closed Perhaps they are not reported.

Re: Double standard of mods

Read here (especially number 8):

Updated Rules of Conduct for GM (version November 27th 2014)

From what I can deduce from the situation, is that it was a simple matter of there already existing thread asking the same question (as mentioned by The Kiwi Fan). Nothing more, nothing less.
