My posts are being edited. This is was my original post.

"I haven't returned to the dealer since I bought the car. Someone else had strut replaced. And very annoying. As is the fact that is happening on a car that costs so much. And happening to so many owners. Not very cool"

This is how it was edited.

""I haven't returned to the dealer since I bought the car. Someone else had strut replaced."

We aren't allowed to express frustration with the car??! Is this board owned by Volvo? Is this 1984? WTF? I am very loyal Volvo owner but this is so wrong.

I'd PM GrecianVolvo or [email protected] and ask.

This isn't owned by Volvo but there are some Volvo corporate folks who post here.

GV is pretty straight forward about telling folks that things aren't edited for content (unless they are vulgar or something).

I first thought I forgot to hit send. So I posted again. The lines about my displeasure and widespread problems were removed. Then I realized I did post the first time and the entire post was removed. I only buy Volvos. I have gotten 3 other friends to buy this XC90 alone. But trying to shut the mouths of owners who have issues is a very, very slippery slope that will badly tarnish this board and Volvo itself. This is very, very disturbing.

I thought I was the big bad wolf...?

I wouldn't jump to that conclusion yet.

There have been many threads here about different dissatisfied owners. I don't think this is the issue we are seeing personally.

Much more likely user error or a bug cut off the end. If that was censored, what gets trough makes no sense.

These were the words cut off--- <<And very annoying. As is the fact that is happening on a car that costs so much. And happening to so many owners. Not very cool>>

Not possible this was anything but censorship. I am sure someone will admit to it very soon. Or this entire thread will disappear.

I believe there are protocols in play for people with x amount of posts and that you have thresholds that have to be reached before certain freedoms are granted.

This is typically to thwart the spambots out there that come into forums and SLAM them with crap about viagra and penis enlargements, etc.

I'm not saying that happened here, I'm saying that this could be a simple case of a dropped line on a post or something that pinpointed something and removed it.

It could've been automated but not due to reasons you would normally think.

It may be something as simple as a spam filter hitting it given your low post count.

Bronsteen, the part you are saying was cut off actually appears in an earlier post of yours, before you were asked about your strut being replaced. Go back and read the thread again.

Please send a note to [email protected]

I know I did not touch your post (and, as I have noted many times before, I would never edit anything that had to do with Volvo whether positive or negative.

Don't understand the attitude. I was following that thread. You are mistaken about when you posted the passage that you claim was censored. It has always been there, earlier in the thread (and in a more grammatically sensible location).

There are some very very critical posts, some disturbing, a few just plain out of line, but they stay up.

You're originally intended post was relatively benign, I doubt it was censored.

I copied and the post in case I needed to paste it again. I have the original. I saw how it read when I posted it. It can't be a coincidence that it got cut off where it did. I am not trying to convince anyone that doesn't want to believe this.

it's funny that you think the most likely thing is that your words were being censored

I've occasionally "lost" posts or parts of posts on this forum and others. I tend to assume user error on my part or something screwy going on with the database or my own browser since it's usually innocuous stuff that no mod would care about, much less invest the effort in editing. Do you use java script blockers? I do and that can cause strange stuff to happen if I don't re-enable the right things.

There are many more incendiary posts than yours that get through. I bet it was a tech glitch with the forum and not censorship.

I am relatively new to being activ on a forum. The vBulletin engine has some quirks - particularly with mobile devices. I will stay logged in on a PC or MacBook when they are plugged into AC power. Phones, iPads and tablets do not always keep me logged in particularly when I am about to post and realize that I have to sign in again to post and I may even have to re-draft the post.

Since you are relatively new to the forum, you may want to give the moderators the benefit of your doubt. They have never edited any of my posts and I have not heard of others having theirs edited. I doubt your post was edited either and I AM trying to convince you that it was highly unlikely. More likely a vBulletin glitch or user error.

Edit: Your post is all there at post 45. No editing, no glitch, ...

I'm trying to convince you that it wasn't edited, and I don't think it was a glitch or anything. I don't even think it was user error! I think it appeared originally where it currently is in the thread. It doesn't make sense the way you claim it was written- "(...)someone else had strut replaced. And very annoying. (...)". That doesn't make sense! Why is it annoying that someone else's strut got replaced?

Here is your original post with this language, which does make sense : "Agreed. My rattle is constant when driving on the snow. And very loud. And very annoying. As is the fact that is happening on a car that costs so much. And happening to so many owners. Not very cool."
