Maybe a bug on meta, post disappeared

I can see your frustration, especially with how blatant censorship is on the internet. I truly appreciate your concern in this matter, because it shows how a cultural difference can change the interpretation of internet actions drastically.

I think that this topic now serves as a good documentation point/signpost that things will be moderated for the end-run quality. If I had to make a suggestion based on this, it would be to advertise this policy in advance of someone “discovering” it. Maybe noted on the Welcome to Meta thread? That way, it might be more of a known fact, as opposed to it feeling like silent censorship.
