My review was approved and after 4 days declined

I posted a review, with the relevant spoiler tag. And it went live for about 4 days and received 23 out of 35 positive ratings and then all of a sudden it was gone, when I went to check it said it had been declined. But it was live for several days and receiving positive feedback

This was my review:
Okay listen up
Is it perfect? No. But the people giving it 1 star are just nick-picking.I just wanna say no this isn't GoT it's The Witcher it's a different show. Saying it's the new GoT is like saying Grey's Anatomy is the new Dr Who just because they both have a doctor in it. I've read a dozen reviews giving one star because Fringilla is black and Triss' hair isn't red, so if Fringilla was white and Triss had red hair you'd be giving it a 10? Surely if that is your only issue you'd have given it more than a 1. It wasn't perfect, most of the story was taken straight from the books everyone is claiming to have read and loved, so why the griping? Here's my issue, I felt it was rushed. season 1 should have been all about Geralt and building the world up, introducing Yennifer towards the end and Ciri possibly in season 2. For people who didn't read the books it was confusing and the subtle hints weren't enough for some people. Season 1 with it's 8 episodes should have been the first two collection of short stories played out faithfully setting the tone of the show and introducing the characters properly. I felt like Lauren S. Hissrich was in such a rush to stuff all the beloved characters in at once she didn't do any of them justice. Personally I could watch an entire season of just Geralt's monster hunting without all the rest of it! Cavill was phenomenal, there is no doubt he is a fine hunk of man but I never really thought his acting was top notch, but he got Geralt perfectly.I thought Joey Batey was some good comedic relief. I didn't like nor dislike Anya Chalotra and Freya Allen was a non issue, the season could have done without her presence in my opinion. Most of the supporting cast were okay and I have no gripes about color or creed. Now to all this bad CGI nonsense. It is no where near as bad as some people are making it out to be. Don't be persuaded by the people who turned it off after 5 minutes or half way through. My final suggestion after this epic of my own is watch it for yourself, don't let the critics, who need a good shaking, or people who 'claim' to be fans or even people like me make up your mind for you. Watch the pilot episode and at least one more because let's be honest it's rare that a pilot is the defining episode of a season.

I had that happen to me once or twice. If it's a rather new movie, you may expect it to happen more often. My guess is that moviemakers (or producers / studios / whomever) are not satisfied with their fake review teams for new releases, so they also have "report negative review" teams as well.
