Default Removal from Message Board - why?

I posted a reply to a message today (3/19/07) regarding the Celebrity Journey. It appears to have been removed. Why would this occur? I mentioned a similar thread on CruiseCritic.com - is this disallowed? Please advise.

You're are not allowed to promote another commercial web site on the message boards. Nor are you allowed to solicit readers to go to another commercial web site.

OK, I'll keep that in mind. I don't work for them - I was just trying to provide information without typing it all. Sorry for the violation. I didn't know you had such stringent rules.

Of course CruiseMates is, and that's the point of such policies.

We are supported by advertisers, so the site is free to all users.

To maintain the value of that advertising and to keep the site free to users, we have to make sure other sites aren't advertising or soliciting readers by posting free and freely on our message boards.

While most of time people posting in this regard are by those who are innocently trying to share information, if allowed it wouldn't take long at all for the boards to be full of sites, travel agents etc. posting soley to promote themselves.

If you visit other commercial sites you'll see they all have the same terms of service.... including the "other" commercial cruise related web sites.
