My Posts removed and never heard from Fodor Editors about it.

I have posted a link of the Los Angeles Times in the forum helping some travelling asking about some info in the Morocco Forums, but someone has reported it to be removed, so once the Fodor editors has removed it, i have contacted them and never heard from them about thos posts which were removed in error what shall i do, and why they accepted the reports of the jealous member who has reported it.
My post was genuine, honest and was right to help the OP.
please help.

Did you e-mail the monitors/editors directly? The address is [email protected]

I have contacted them through here, and sent them also an e-mail but never replied they only confirmed that they received it, and no reply yet, they did not even reinstate it, so why they remove it if they can prove me that they can reinstate it because im not wrong.

They remove posts for lots of different reasons. They honestly don't need to 'prove' anything. It is their website.

Sometimes it is because of words/language that was used, sometimes because of suspected advertising, sometimes for other reasons. If you are very concerned about what happened, I'd e-mail them again.

Hi;
Yes i know there is posts that voilates the guidelines, but mine did not voilate it and they can reinstate it i just need their reply now regarding that, because if the members in Morocco forums goes like that and reporting honest and genuine posts will make that very aggressive forums, and will be so many attacks between members thus it might be better to look at the situation and stop the vilance, there is some members who has just joined Fodor's as they are very aggressive in other forums.
Thanks

Yes, I know about a couple of 'aggressive' new members, and I sympathize, it can be hard. But IME the editors don't usually remove posts simply because someone complains. If there is a complaint - the editors will decide themselves if it breaks the rules should be deleted or not.

I'd e-mail them again and see if they will explain things. Good luck

yes true i agree, the posts would not be removed itself unless someone has complaint about it, and that's what happens for the second time to me, i posted and get removed contacted them and they have reinstated it, but after 3 months it gets removed once the topic pop up, and i contacted them and still now have not heard from them yet, thus im posting here with this very serious complains, and about the new be Members who get aggressive and make this forums aggressive.
Thank you Janis

Your post may have been removed for referencing another travel site, or providing a link to it.

I once saw a post vanish when I posted a link to a London newspaper's travel section.
I don't believe anyone has to "report" for this to happen - probably an internal filter.

And janisj is absolutely right - editors can do what they like with their website.

From the Guidelines:

"Do not post copyrighted material.
Loved an article that you read elsewhere? You are welcome to link to it, but please don't copy and paste its content in the forums. Please include a small explanation to make it easy for fellow members to decide whether or not the content is of interest to them."


This is probably where I went wrong, as I posted some of the actual content, along with the link.
My mistake!
