CENSORSHIP? I just tried to post something twice and it was both times deleted

I just made two attempts at posting something and it was deleted both times WITHIN SECONDS of posting.  It contained my opinion on (and criticism of) the U.S.-only policy that was put in place last year.  Could that have something to do with it?  Is Upwork now censoring us for our valid and politely stated opinions?

 It was probably merged into the endless thread where the rest of us are complaining about this...

Plus it is not a "new" policy, it's been about a pretty long time now.

Do you have a link to the thread? 

Yes, I realize now that it isn't new.  I was a bit slow on the uptake with this.

They seem to have been entirely deleted.  There's no sign of them anywhere.

I know.  They're not there.  That's how I know they've been deleted.

 I flagged this for you to get a moderator to see if it has slipped into the auto-filter.

Are any of the Upwork moderators going to address my concerns?  Or are they just hoping I'll shut up and let it go?

There is an automatic filter that sometimes prevents a post from being visible until a moderator has the opportunity to review it. You may have to wait for your post to appear.

Hi Samantha,

 

sorry about the confusion and delay in addressing this. Your post wasn't removed by a moderator but was temporarily held by our automatic filter. I had it published. Please refer to my reply here.
