If you are in a position of power or influence on dooyoo and you know dooyoo are clamping down on iffy comments from members then you also know you are less likely to be suspended than the person-guide or prominent member- you go to war with so more likely to start that war. Your not whiter than white guys.

If a comments is inappropriate dooyoo will remove it no matter who wrote it. I had a guide's comment removed only a few weeks ago.

But if you get an NU from a guide for no real reason other than antagonism and you want it changed you have no chance if you go through the comments or dooyoo.

They won't remove a comment just because you 'want it changed' - they have to deem it inappropriate - it's not up to you, the commenter or the guides - it's up to dooyoo.

That dooyoo decide the comments you receive are fair and appropriate isn't because of any undue influence; it's because in their view, the comments you receive are fair and warranted. Conversely, if they remove your comments from other people's reviews, it's because Dooyoo Towers believe your comments are inappropriate. Again, it makes no odds who you offended - if you post offensive comments and folk complain, you'll find your comments gone.

I thought you'd already been doing that for years, Phil.

How would you know a NU was due to antagonism though? I would imagine to NU work that had VU's someone would have to find it offensive, off topic or plagiarism.

Dooyoo seesm to be reacting to the NU situation if they deem it isnt an evaluation of the work but the member.
