Hmm..seems to have been some very heavy handed moderation going on here.
I've had the same as dio mentions in his(?) response from someone else at El Reg. While I'm a bit saddened that my best upvotes post has gone (though I still have the overall votes tally), I do understand and support the reasons I've been given. I've had at least a half a dozen of my own posts removed and a few never made it past moderation.
Given the current UK political climate, they probably do sometimes have to rein some of us in! :)
