Canuck, please unlock the thread on Serena & the Straight Set post

Canuck,

I sent you a PM but I don't think you're entitled to close a thread because you personally don't like the subject. Just as long as posters keep the discussion civil and post within the rules of TF, it is not your domain to close a thread if it's based on new subject matter.

The New York Times had a new piece on Serena posted today. Even if it's been talked about, this is a new item.

If you don't want a new thread, please merge with another thread on Serena's outburst please. Thanks.

BARBIE
is coming for your towel, too.

I didn't close because I didn't like the subject matter, you really believe I care what you guys talk about here? I closed it because your thread was turned into a race war once again, or did you miss that part?

I'm not a mod mind reader, that's why I contacted you. I see you made a correction to you post on why you closed the thread. Fine.

It's too bad, however, that due to the world we live in any controversy regarding Serena, Venus, Tamarine or other nonwhite players will automatically delve into the realm of race. Always does. I think this could be discussed while civil, and give a warning, but you're the mod.

Sorry about the dual public/private posts to you

It would be nice to actually go into a thread and read a civil discussion where actual good/valid points are being discussed, sadly I gave up that dream a long time ago. Now anytime something of interest comes up it gets closed within a day due to people not knowing how to debate without resorting to insults.

On that note, I cleaned up your thread and re-opened it. Maybe round 2 will go a little better?
