This is scoobs answered in the moved thread but I think it's better discussed here than in that thread.
I think this issue is fine to discuss in GM - in general terms - but this thread is pretty much about a WTA player's specific case and so doesn't belong in GM. If people want to discuss this in terms of how it impacts the men in GM, fair enough as far as I'm concerned.
As I have suggested in my petition there, you can merge it with an exisiting thread in GM. Although WTA players are mentioned in this thread, basically, most is about the refusal of Israeli players and what actions should players/WTA/ATP take. Just move the thread because of the title or this time the incident happens to a WTA player without really look into the spirit of the thread is not fair. May be MTF is like ATP or the top 3, 10 or 20 players in either tours that as long as it didn't involve someone famous, it did not occur.
