Default should this be ground for deleting 75 % of MTF content

This is the ground upon which a moderator (Slasher1985) found the need to delete/lock my thread..

Thread title: Predict the score of the would-been Nadal-Federer USO'13 QF

Quote:
Sorry, but I don't see a point to this thread. Not only that the match did not happen, the imagination of both fan bases will basically generate the same discussions that always exist in any other threads concerning these two players.
http://www.menstennisforums.com/show...7&postcount=23

Apparently, one should be keeping tabs on similar moves from his position on (peak v peak) or '2005 X player vs 2002 X player) threads, because i have literally seen none, not to mention on threads that trigger a reality where "the imagination of both fan bases will basically generate the same discussions that always exist in any other threads concerning these two players" ..

Quite an incredible elastic language that could serve for the purpose to rid this forums of its 75 % generated content if applied with the same rigor..

I don't like Slasher. He is not a good mod IMO, but this decision was 100% correct.

There is not point in a thread like this. It is better than it does not exists.

I agree with Slasher on this one. A hypothetical match thread involving Fed and Nadal will just end poorly. There is nothing to be gained by having that discussion.

No problem if that's the standard for the rest of forum topics involving other players..Otherwise,the power-that-be he represents might as well put it in their Rules book (Federer vs Nadal is an exception)..

Double standarts. Fedtardism. Nadal haters. Nothing new.

But I'll say it again: USO-2013 QF would be repeat of RG-2008 F, if Federer hasn't lost to Robredo.

He’s still fighting hard and he’s not winning.

Humiliating players is not allowed here and that's exactly what Nadal would have done with Fed in that match.

Dealing in hypothetical situations and if X would have happened then Y would have won more type situations is useless. So many times, I wish a result would have been different, but my player was just not on that day or did something incredibly dumb to lose the match. These posts annoy me, too and are a waste of time.

I think the mod was right that this topic would quickly devolve into name calling and dick waving. So good it was deleted.

Sorry.

along with those awful "Are you still shocked about XYZ results" yeah, don't see points of thinking about the what might have beens if they never happened. The thread Murray would have beaten Djokovic at Wimbledon 2014/15 if not for Federer/Dimitrov was also closed similarly.

Your thread would be waste of space, just like this one. Plus, you're arrogant and obnoxious, so there's a high possibility that the mod doesn't like you which is quite understandable from my perspective.

Coric will not win a single title in the next five years. Not even a 250.

Coric made it via wildcards - to Basel for example, Dzumhur had to reach it by hard work, on qualies, challengers.

Why don't you contact Slasher directly, instead of making a thread about it?

Also, all Slasher was doing was taking precaution. Nadal and Federer fans are like a Sperm Whale and a Giant Squid. Mortal ENEMIES.

It's not necessarily you that is at fault Pile Drive, but the rabid Federer and Nadal fans, WHO GET THREADS DELETED AND CLOSED!
