It's stupid and it wasn't harmless in any way.

I meant "harmful" obviously. It's really sad that they go down that road. There are mindless and stupid threads still going on right now.

Re: Why did moderators close the Henin/Serena AO final thread ?

Truth be told, it was wack to close the thread. Absolutely wack!

There were actually at least TWO very credible conversations going on there regarding the the match - one re Justine and a Kick Serve and two, regarding Serena's fitness! It seems ridiculous and suspect to me to close - without any REAL good reason or warning - a thread because people were still celebrating Serena's win AMONGST the other topical conversations.

EDIT: If it was about one or two posts, DELETE those post as Mods have done in many other threads on MANY MANY occasions.

Okay, so now that this has been moved - Which I understand - why close the other thread which I, and many others, don't understand?

That.
Seriously! ...Seriously!?

That thread, by tennis forum standards, was a damn Church Picnic! There were quite credible conversations going on and just a bit of sniping. So what! The thread was summarily closed was pretty shocking and perhaps unfair to Serena's fan base, imho. There have been many threads that I've seen devolve into foolishness and RIGHTFULLY be closed - many involving Serena's fans. This wasn't one of them.

Re: Why did moderators close the Henin/Serena AO final thread ?

The discussions were indeed interesting.
I thought it was about to turn into the usual pie eating contest but i do give you that they deserve a chance.
A mini break wasn't totally useless, though.

to new beginnings.

Because two fanbases can't co-exist without causing immature shitfights in a result thread.
