Default Why does BHtv delete posts?

I don't want to use the term censorship since I don't think that applies but I want to know what standards are in place on BHtv about criticizing diavloggers.

I posted earlier today on the Ana Marie Cox and Rich Lowry Snowpocalypse Edition. That post is now gone. I did not receive any notice from BHtv about the removal of the post. But I would like to know why it was deleted.

The post was a bit over the top. I will not recreate it here since it will probably be deleted again. In my pursuit of sarcasm, it may have been considered insulting to flight attendants, people in the closet and flaming queens. But I have seen much worse in these forums.

What set me off was Lowry's insistence that gays remain in the closet. This after his well publicized bout of sexual arousal by Sarah Palin. I think that is an accurate description of what he is referring to in his post "Projecting through the Screen". In my original post, I did not say sexual arousal but referred to increasing rigidity - in general, not any specific body part.

I then went on to say that in fact Lowry was not being hypocritical or advocating a double standard, but was in fact deep in the closet himself. I think that my saecasm was obvious. I just thought it was a good way to make this point. BHtv disagrees.
Even a blind man knows when the sun is shining, he can feel it.
