Why are threads just.....deleted

We were having an interesting political thread on General Messages (OK, it's not the right place), which I believe was just deleted. Why can't it just be moved to non-tennis or locked - why delete it? Moderators are

I agree here, while that thread didnt belong in GM anymore it could of just been moved to Non Tennis.

Before people dramatically turn the thread it would be easier if they somebody said HEY IVE JUST MADE A NEW THREAD ABOUT THIS IN NON-TENNIS and discuss it there. The rubbish you guys were producing had no relevance to the topic... Easier for the mod to just delete the thread rather than deleting all the posts u guys were rambling on about.

Point of the mods in GM should be to keep topics on track but often they partake in the hilarity

We need to get a bit more of "stay on topic or lock, bitches" up in here.

Re: Why are threads just.....deleted

Really the thread may have been off-topic but was really interesting and I think alot of people learned alot in it, myself included so it was really unnecessary to delete it. You just throw my night and alot of others in dustbin. Thanks, may this be my last post here.

Because the essence is not there anymore, it would have been wiser to transfer it.

Well bad luck its gone now. Im not a mod here (as you know) so I didnt delete it and I dont know who did (but they did the right thing ). Be a better person stop ur sooking and make a new thread in none tennis about that topic u all so badly want to discuss. Heck i might even come in for an educational read after work

i second that. i do understand mods if they delete threads where it's all about the insults, but that wasn't the case at all this time. i worked my ass off typing those posts while i'm actually supposed to work here where i am (petrol station) , so i'm pretty pissed actually.

Re: Why are threads just.....deleted

which thread?

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.
