I recently placed a single post in a thread involving a review of the 2011 Ford Fiesta. The review showed a specific lack of professionalism and I pointed out specifically why the review falls short, including posting pictures from the review. To my utter amazement, my post is deleted.Originally Posted by Anonymous Administrator
Since when is GMI the place for censorship? I'm amazed and deeply disappointed. Is there no room for critical review? Having first-hand experience with the I-5 commute, I was particularly galled at the reference
to traveling at 90 mph with two anxious children, only to arrive two hours early for the ferry. Words don't describe the disrespect and condescension I feel for someone that would drive like that, especially with kids aboard.
Next up was the sock feet on the dash. That's crap journalism in full color.
Those are objective observations, and quite honestly, I thought the review was quite half-assed.
If had made it a habit of flaming autosavant, that's one thing. But that's clearly not the case. If I had made more than a single post, I might even stretch to understand why you might want to limit my participation in the thread. But to delete a single critical, factual post? Come on.
When I make single critical post and that is deleted without rhyme or reason, my only possible conclusion is that someone can't stand the heat and is resorting to censorship. And then to follow up with the anonymous text message? Seriously?
So, my question is what is GMI going to allow in terms of critical review? When does someone cross the line with critical review to a post that must be deleted?
Will you force me to always proffer pleasantries for an autosavant review posted on GMI, even one that is far less than professional?
