moderated blogs, a.k.a censorship

I'm very dissappointed to see that my (perfectly reasonably) comments have not been "accepted" on a certain blog where a technical discussion has been taking place.

At first I thought it was just because the blog owner was offline for the night, but now I see that someone elses comments, posted after mine, have appeared.

I'd taken a low-key approach (by not responding to each comment with an entry on my blog) on this "blog conversation" because I don't particularly like to "do my laundry in public"

The sad fact is that I won't trust moderated blogs to be fair or honest again in the future.
