This comment, written by one of our editors, was censored by the Guardian. Which of the well-publicised CiF “community standards” did it breach?
Comment removed from “Why do people dislike Hillary Clinton”
It should be noted that every single one of the claims made is objectively and provably true.
It’s also interesting to note the title of this article was actually edited after publication – the original title can was “Why Hillary Clinton is so unlikeable”, as can be seen here in this tweet from Deborah Orr:
Why do people dislike Hillary Clinton? The story goes far back https://t.co/H9gto1bkby

UPDATE: Deborah’s tweet has been edited after we published this. It now has the same headline as the amended article. We are wondering how this was done?
- Does it “misrepresent the Guardian and its journalists”?
- Is it “persistent trolling or mindless abuse”?
- Is it “spam-like”? Or “obviously commercial”?
- Is it “racism, sexism, homophobia or hate-speech”?
- Is it “extremely offensive of threatening?”?
- Is it “flame-wars based on ingrained partisanship or generalisations”?
- Is it not “relevant”?
If none of the above – why was it taken down?
