My critical reviews being removed

During the Covid-era a lot of junk content is being foisted on us, like Gunpowder Milkshake for instance. My critical review of that was removed more than once after reposting, same with Motherland: Fort Salem. Similarly, now with my critical review of "Arcane". I've been reviewing on IMDB since 2005 so excuse me if I feel an explanation for removal of my thoughtful reviews is in order, but no, they're just gone, no explanation, no advice for repairing what was "wrong" in someone's arbitrary view. Can you tell me what's going on with my reviews being removed?!

Hi TheTruthofItIs -

I can confirm that your user reviews for "Arcane" and "Motherland: Fort Salem" have now been reinstated as they are not in violation of our User Review Guidelines, however, your User Review for "Gunpowder Milkshake (2021)" has been removed because the review does not primarily focus on the content of the title.

If you are observing that your user reviews are being removed, I encourage yo to review our guidelines, if you don;t believe that your review is in violation of the existing guidelines, you should re-submit the review and IMDb staff will take another look.

Cheers!

Why would an honest review that points out poor, political bias writing be declined?

There are much more critical reviews that mention the same exact issues I touched on but those reviews were accepted.

 

I also read the IMDb guidelines and do not see a single violation. We are getting tired of honesty being censured because a couple people are over-sensitive or have an extremely bias view of differing opinions.

 

Please explain why certain people and perspectives are singled out. Do mediators follow the same rules, or do they operate independently?

Thanks for restoring two of three reviews, at least.
