Is it possible to still launch the contest for 2017 tough?

Mark Lenders did last year, but I don't think he updated until the end.

Thank you, and I appreciate the response.

Well after Nadal won USO there were many threads claiming he had weak opponents and his victory meant nothing, or thread threads re-asserting Fed's GOAT status. These would all be in the same category.

I would not have said they should be in ruins, but if mine--simply providing a link to an article in the Economist etc. etc. then all that should be too.

That is, if this forum treats all players and all player's fans equally.

Thanks again.

You have put the more objective post in ruins, and left the highly subjective, antagonistic one in the general forums.

I already know the answer to this question--it's because anything supporting Nadal is considered "trolling" or undesirable; while anything discrediting Nadal and trumpeting Fed is considered normal.

If there is another explanation, I would love to hear it.

I don't see this thread in the list of recent threads of the last two two day.
I thought you maybe you moved it to Ruins, but I can't seem to find ruins either.

So
A) Where is this thread? If it was removed, I'd like to know why. It was as about a well reasoned argument in the highly popular GOAT debate as you'll ever see, in a very high profile and revered magazine.
b) Where do I find Ruins?

That and some other things, case-dependent. Of course, we can't ask from people to upload their IDs before approving an account, so it's not exactly a perfect system. The obvious ones usually don't last very long anyhow.
