Has anybody else been denied access to the Camille-Sharapova thread?

They won't let me access the thread. Does anybody else have the same problem?

The conversation of the thread was getting out of hand and off-topic. It had a much longer run then it should have, and it was finally put to sleep. It's in a better place now.

Thanks for your replies! I didn't find the thread offensive at all, except for Sweet Cleo's posts.

She was so rude. I thought the thread was fine and it shouldve lasted a bit longer cause there were still people talking about it. Its not like it got one poste everyday it was like every few minutes. It was still hot lol.

Re: Has anybody else been denied access to the Camille-Sharapova thread?

That and the Tipsarevic thread were the only worthwhile threads in GM.
Why not at least move it to the Maria forum? Seriously, I normally do not get upset with the moderator's decisions, but that was such a fun and lighthearted, enjoyable thread where almost everyone was getting along, laughing.
I mean, the "Serena?" thread is still alive, can't get much more off-topic than that.

Seriously, really bad move moderators. Not impressed at all. Thanks for ruining another interesting thing about WTAWorld, just when I was getting optimistic.

gone

I don't think people in Maria's forum would have wanted it either.

Re: Has anybody else been denied access to the Camille-Sharapova thread?

Wow, this feels more like censorship than any good reason to stop use of that thread. "Out of hand and off topic" describes MANY threads. So I assume this rule will be applied in each of those cases? Is that a stated rule, by the way - conversations must be kept in hand and on topic?

And it's now giong to be hidden so nobody can view it?

I tend to agree with most moderator decisions here, but this one is way off. And I feel a duty to speak out against censorship, whether it personally affects me or not.

If this decision came down from above for fear of legal trouble, that would be pretty interesting.
