Comment Removed?

I noticed on the latest article announcing the release of The Hero, some guy made a comment about TA just posting it so that people would buy it thru their affiliate link (or something like that), but now the comment has disappeared.
To my knowledge, you can't delete your own comments either.

Quick, get the tin-foil hats out! Conspiracy time!
Any truth to what he was saying? Are TA being comment Nazis?

That's because it's an old complaint with no validity. arn has said many times that there is no money traded for articles or anything like that. Those complaints got old fast and they get erased to avoid the same stupid conversation 500 times. If it was a real complaint, that's one thing, but it's always somebody rambling off theories about the man telling what games to buy.

Was it really necessary to put a link in your sig to this thread?

If a comment is removed, there's a reason it was removed. No conspiracy, no cover up, no nada. Plain & simple.

Okay, it was just the fact that it was deleted made it look like a cover up.
For reference, what other complaints / debates get deleted?

Yup, I don't know about you, but I wouldn't normally browse the site feedback section, so how else was I to expose my suspected conspiracy?

Maybe this thread will be deleted...?:confused :

Well, there's always a reason as to why a comment is removed.

yes, we remove comments that accuse us of selling coverage for $$.
