What makes you think that we want to see them anymore than you do, how about just deleting them all together instead of using the forum as a gigantic garbage disposal ?
The Federer Forum has a moderator of its own, we move the thread there and it's up to him (and the Federer fans) to decide what should be done with it - leave it as it is, merge it into another thread, or delete it altogether. And what may be "garbage" to some, may not be to others, so simply deleting the thread in GM could lead to protests from Federer fans that would start accusing us of having a personal bias against the player.
Well, take a look at the General Messages and you will see threads about particular players, including today's additions -- Hewitt, Federer, Sampras, others. It is not true that threads about a particular player are moved to that particular forum, only the minority of them is.
According to the rules sticky thread:
Threads about minor happenings involving a single player (e.g. change of sponsor, off-court action) are not of general interest and go in the player forums.
Threads about a single player belong to GM when:
- the discussion is about tennis.
- the thread has generated a lot of reaction in a short period of time (therefore, it's of general interest).
