Chopin already posted the same thing in the TW Questions section. Answer given there is the one I expected...There was too much fighting/trolling going on.

I posted the same thing in the TW Question section and it was deleted immediately without comment. You won't get an answer to your question as it is policy to delete all questioning of moderation.

You have to take your objections outside TT if you want a hearing.

Use your heads...TT is a message board of a website that SELLS GEAR ENDORSED BY PROS...the more bashing of a top product endorser, the bigger the impact on sales. If folks lose faith in Ralphy they won't blindly "fan boy" and purchase the light, stiff, krapolats he "uses"!

It's got nothing much to do with commerce. Sharapova and WADA threads last forever because she has no fan base to complain. And she is a huge commercial vehichle.

This, and there wasn't anything illegal done in the first place, so the entire thing is a non-issue which turned into a basement-tin-foil-small dick-circle jerk.
An accurate headline would have been. "Criminals hack into WADA computer records to expose athletes that comply with the WADA doping rules." I tried to get a non-tennis group interested in the "story" over the weekend. It went about no where.

They didn't delete anthing. They've merged the Nadal threads into my original WADA thread which now has like 18 pages. If you scroll through you'll find the threads within the thread. Easier having it all in the one place, I get that. And the thread is closed so no more posting allowed on it but you can read all the posts.

Simple.

Oh. Shouldn't have closed it though.

Actually I'm thinking of giving up all things tennis for good and returning to my first love of photography. 'Should I stay or should I go'?

The Clown must never be silenced nor censored in any way. At worst it's a historical record on the weak era of Clown propaganda.

I think anyone should just say what they like and let readers be the jury.
Free speech is good - ideas are normally self-policing in a proper, free forum of discussion.

You seem to have an obsession for male genitals given that this your 2nd post ive seen in as many days to mention them.

People can speculate if they want to. You and others decided to pollute the WADA thread with the same flawed line of thinking. Some people jump to quickly to label the TUE people as dopers, but others such as yourself just as quickly shrug it all off by saying TUE's were obtained legitimately.

That has the potential to be really hipster.

Photography gets boring quickly IMHO unless you constantly travel and/or do weird things to get the awesome photos.
I bought this great camera a while ago and gave up and sold it after like a month.

I like back stage circus pictures as much as the next poster but I don't want The Clown to go. :(

Yes, tennis is very unfashionable among the set these days and you just look silly playing with a full beard.

Street photography with a mirrorless in a Melbourne laneway seems to provide me, literally, with street cred.

Bastl pulled it off I think.

Mirror-less cameras give me a rash. They're the future though, I guess. More compact. Less moving parts, less stuff to go wrong.
As hobbies go I'd be prepared to admit that you could do much, much worse.

Mirrorless are not so good for sports photography, but for a time the two passions were intersecting through a dslr.

Even though I only take photos of important stuff or for records now, DSLRs give me a certainty that I have been unable to find anywhere else.

The posts and opinions shared by MN, myself, and others on these threads are like tipping a bottle of Evian into a sewer.
They don't seem to do anything, but they sure aren't going to "pollute" what's already there.
Maybe pollute is the wrong word, but saying "they did nothing wrong" dozens of times doesn't really contribute much, does it?

The funny thing is you can see a lot of parallels between people like Nadal and the cycling world. Nadal says he's never taken a banned substance. We find out he's taken banned substances with TUE. Early on Team Sky says they would rather pull riders out of a race rather than apply for TUE's. Then Froome gets his TUE's for his inhaler, and Wiggins gets TUE's for injections to combat his allergies that pop up before grand tours. This stuff has a rancid smell but some people here seem to think it smells like febreeze or something.

What is being said is that they did nothing wrong *as per the rules*.
Sure, you could say they've done something morally wrong, and I'm not entirely sure what my opinion is there (although I believe that Venus, at least, has behaved in good faith), but really you could say anyone's misbehaved in some way if we're using arbitrary moral standards. The rules are the only things they're obliged to follow, and by the looks of things, they have.

Should the rules be changed? Should the folks running the show be changed? Maybe.
But I think that's a separate discussion.

You started the thread expecting your opinion would simply stand unquestioned, so you quickly became tired of it and only concerned that your post count stood.
I didn't close the thread man. I didn't even ask for it to be closed, I'm just saying it got closed. Yikes, stop looking for someone to blame.

Well for one, they didn't do anything wrong, and secondly, myself, and many others have described why multiple times. If anything it's the opposite side that's adding nothing to the discussion by saying "FOUND OUT" multiple times, and have no idea what corticosteriods actually do or how they affect you.

Yeah Nike would go bankrupt, it would be their second time in period of a year.
Its more than enough that they hadn't GS Final 2016, even SFs are rarer
Other players can be object of such speculations . There are double standards and everyone here knows it.

The discussions are based on the speculation of uneducated hacks pretending to analyze unlawfully disclosed personal records.

Why close them indeed?

Bartelby and his politics is what shut down those wada threads. Best discussed at Reddit.
I don't think that's fair.
AND the original thread had posters tagging him to contribute - even if their intentions were less than honourable.
