Censorship going too far!? Answered
Is there a reason Instructables is deleting comments and replies without a note or considering to grow a backbon so we get answers?
You recent site upgrade has offended and disappointed long standing users, now you add insult to it by deleting their comments.
I call this censorship and it should not happen.
In the deleted posting was nothing offensive, nothing wrong - the only thing in there highlighted the utter disappointment of the user.
What comes next next? Deleting accounts of users who prefer to have an opinion that differs from the official Instructables.com viewpoint?
What are you so scared of?
If you do major changes you have to consider that not everyone likes them.
As it looks now you have a hand full of users liking the kids look and features while the rest of the community is disappointed to say it nice.
Deleting their comments in this regard won't fix the problem, it only adds to it.
