There had to at least have been discussions about it, otherwise the suggestion is that CBR has no unified policy regarding their forums, and I can't believe that. Everything would just fall apart if that were the case.
But that's pretty much how it is there, they delete stuff willy-nilly. I gave up even trying to post there, you'd go back and look for your comment, and it'd be gone, or the whole thread would be gone..
CBR is what they mean when they say web forums aren't a "democracy". And the Emperors have no clothes.
The only reason it gets the traffic it does is because of their close ties to the PR reps at Marvel & DC, so mandated or not it's pretty obvious why they did this.
