Hi CIF.moderation,

I’d appreciate if someone could clarify why my comments are being pre-moderated?

Having read your guidelines thoroughly I’m assuming there has been a mistake and that this filter will be removed soon.

To date, I have only contributed 4 comment,s so it seems highly unlikely that I have been identified as a risk, based on a pattern of behaviour (e.g. spam, trolling, repeated/frequent borderline abuse).

If there is a genuine issue, I’d appreciate the guidance so that I am able to ‘moderate’ future contributions and avoid unfair exclusion from the community.

The last comment I contributed before being gagged was a contribution to a discussion about women’s lack of participation in online political debate. Ironically, my contribution was to draw parallels with the way that the current Shadow Minister for Women (& Equalities) recently presented a quite Orwellian narrative where men were screened out of a political debate entirely.

Hardly off topic, I hope you’ll agree. I think it’s reasonable to ask (and receive a reasonable answer) regarding wether there is a reasonable reason why I’ve been censored. I sincerely hope that it is not just cause EYEisBloke?

Appreciate if this could be resolved quickly,

Be seeing you,
