Review censorship!!!??

I have made all positive reviews, until now I wanted to review poorly. My reviews are not being posted I have contacted Trip advisor 3 times now. I keep getting the same, what looks to be automated response! How do I actually get through to an individual??? I have moderated my review 3 times the last having hardly any content other than poor food poor customer service, yet still it they refuse to post it quoting the same auto response! This is very frustrating as I have looked at other places with other reviews and people have written the same as I am trying to write about a separate establisent and I'm not being allowed why????????

Hi CliveNicol;

This forum, like all the forums on TripAdvisor, is member driven, peer-to-peer assistance. TA does not offer one-on-one support for its general users.

If you post a copy of your review on this forum, perhaps one of "regulars" can spot the problem for you.

Best Regards

How do I obtain copy's of the three reviews I have posted? The first was removed after about a week and the second two have not been posted.

Thanks Clive

Clive

See link below to your review listing which shows three reviews being published

tripadvisor.co.uk/members-reviews/CliveNicol

Any others that you have submitted and are still "Pending" should also be show on the list

Do you have others that are not shown on the list

Yes we have freedom of speech here in the UK. However, you still need to abide by TA's posting guidelines and the law of the land

Isn't that a contradiction to the freedom of speech liberty you mention?

I think so, and I find it both an ironic thing to say considering the thread title, and also very revealing!

Res Ipsa Loquitor, The facts speak for themselves,.... and perhaps never more eloquently so than in some posts here, and a review by the same person, whom, I think, protests about " censorship" a tad too much when seeking to defend their own racist bias and unpleasantness, and then attacks forum members who dislke their views.
