The following comments – sent in by one of our readers, 0use4msm – were censored by the Guardian. Which of the well-publicised CiF “community standards” did they breach?
Removed comments, posted under the opinion piece “Aggression, abuse and addiction: we need a social media detox”:
The article was published at 6.00am yesterday morning – August 4th – its comment section was closed by 4pm.
Screen shot of where they used to be:
- Do they “misrepresent the Guardian and its journalists”?
- Are they “persistent trolling or mindless abuse”?
- Are they “spam-like”? Or “obviously commercial”?
- Are they “racism, sexism, homophobia or hate-speech”?
- Are they “extremely offensive of threatening?”?
- Are they “flame-wars based on ingrained partisanship or generalisations”?
- Are they not “relevant”?
If none of the above – why was it taken down?
