Negative posts being removed?

Gin n Tonic | Jul 7, 2011 07:35 AM

I've been reading and occasionally posting for a long time -- back to the old text-only days, when you could post without registering, and there were periodic calls for cash contributions (I sent a check several times) and I've never really questioned the mods. I know the work is hard and thankless. But at least on the board I frequent most regularly now, Southern NE, it's seeming more heavy-handed, and I'm wondering if it's just me. Just last night or this morning, I read a post that was quite critical of a place that's more generally recommended than panned, and while I disagreed with it, I thought it was generally substantive in criticizing the service and the quality of the cooking. And this isn't the first instance where I'll read a post, then come back a day later and it's gone, yet I can't see where the post violated site guidelines. While I haven't done any statistical study, my impression now, as compared to years ago, is that there are way more picks than pans, and that the discussion has gotten blander. Is it just me?
