People omit her from the polls, either out of ignorance, of forgetfulness, or out of not considering her achievements to be worthy of mention given the difference in calibre of competition.
Ignorance can be corrected; forgetfulness is something that happens to all of us. The latter is a matter of opinion. My opinion clearly differs to yours on the matter. I don't see how saying "a woman is, in my opinion, the best cyclist of the year" makes me any more ignorant than you for saying "wah wah somebody voted for somebody I don't care about".
If that were all it takes I'd be sideswiping the Cavendish discussion thread with Godwin's Law every five minutes.
it's not about either of those. it's about intelligence i'd say.
people omit her because they realize that 99% of the posts here are related to male athletes so it seems redundant to actually mention this every time. true, this is not completely unambiguous, most people are still capable of understanding
this concept. and most likely, you understand it as well, still you make sure to pop in every single time there's a similar discussion, make a fuss, and bait people into these pointless debates.
comparing her achievemants to male cyclists could be interesting, but repeatedly posting about her when it's clear to every able-minded member that the discussion is about something else is nothing but trolling
