I have gotten messages deleted too. It's really a bummer to not know what you did wrong. Sometimes they are just deemed "off topic" or about a topic they don't want discussed on TA forums. Also, be very careful to watch your language. They are very sensitive to anything that even hints at swearing or even some slang, that may seem perfectly OK to most people, but TA wants to make sure no one is offended even in an unintended way. One time after questioning them about one of my posts, it was re-instated as written, so they are very responsive to questions too.

Here is the link to contact them. http://www.tripadvisor.com/help/contactus

They usually respond very quickly, and are very nice to deal with. I think all in all, TA does a good job policing; otherwise I wouldn't spend so much time on it.

Good luck!

I had a review pulled and complained as content was 100% fact. I reckon owner complained and TA listened. So I do have issues with their neutrality on occasions. They suggested that I REWRITE the review but would not say which part was not within their guidelines.Shame as the public should be informed when things could possible go very very wrong with their safety and health.

Another thing to keep in mind is companies can pay money to external (ddogy) organisations, who will use the "Report Inappropriate Content" feature to report posts.

It only takes a few Tripadvisor members to report a post before it will be "removed by the community".

Was your post removed by the Tripadvisor Community, or Removed by Tripadvisor Staff.. it will say in the edited messsage.

If it doesn't sometimes the servers here lose sync and messages are lost in transit (seen that happen before).
