what about censorship?

It is not true that only posts in violation of the policy get deleted.

Some posts are deleted simply because a particular advertiser might object to the comment. Even if it is true.

You think not?

I have had posts deleted AFTER others have responded to it and added their own two cents. Nothing violated the stated policy. Only the policy that if advertisers might complain the post gets zapped.

It has happened a number of times.

Censorship rules.
