Biased Moderation for Serena post

I have noticed that just about every thread that is positive about Serena is suddenly closed or removed. Yet similar threads about other players and their non-tennis achievements are allowed to flourish. I posted a thread regarding the many charities Serena supported. It was removed. The NY times piece with the now famous poses which was posted in mainstream media as breaking the internet was promptly removed. Then I just posted a piece from the official WTA website, showing the match with Ree and Petkova in Toronto and titled by the WTA site as Drake supporting Serena was removed. Other posters have also recently had their post about Serena removed. I think this is setting a dangerous and bad precedent and reputation for the legitimacy and fairness of this site in their treatment of certain players and their fans. I think that guidelines should be established and moderators should give a reasoned explanation, not be able to move or close a thread simply based on their personal favorites. I also feel that concrete guidelines need to be established regarding defining rule violations, notification of violations, and punishment. The fact that you allow post about the azzes and tits of players to thrive in GM while removing a sanctioned WTA article regarding an ongoing tennis tournament in Canada and a bonafide Rock Star from that city is unfathonable.

I notice a post regarding the Kyrigias situation where several posters commented about their beliefs that the thread should remain open. Did you comment on that as well?

You have asked over PM. Your question will be answered over PM as well.

The thread regarding the Kyrgios controversy was closed as well, for the reason Demosthenes explained.
