Default Comments Cricinfo refused to accept

A number of times (about 10) Cricinfo did not publish my comments. I noticed whenever there is some criticism of Indian fans, Cricinfo is reluctant to publish that. I think we should have a thread where we can post the comments that Cricinfo refused to accept.
Let me give you an example. Read the following article:

http://www.espncricinfo.com/wcl-cham...ry/554229.html

My following comment was not accepted by Cricinfo:

samedwards:
"@dulabari and @tatactg,even ban got thrashed by canada in 2003 World Cup....just 1 bad day doesn't make them a bad team..."
I agree with you. But when Bangladesh has a bad day, you will see hundreds of posts saying how bad a team Bangladesh is. This is not the case for Ireland. The point I am trying to make is that there are some fans (mostly from the Subcontinent), who were very patient with New Zealand (26 years), they are willing to be patient with Ireland, but not with Bangladesh. For some reason they are not happy to see BD in the cricket elite group.

please stop this self pity. who cares what anyone says about bd team.. facts are 1. bd has been horrible and 2. no matter what anyone says bd is a test team, so as long as they are in that group, as long as there is a tomorrow, there is always hope.

man up. shake it out.. this is our time to take a few hits.

Don't look for unbiased publishing of comments on the Cricinfo website. Indian posters get away with murder whilst almost all comments that are in any way critical of the IPL, BCCI, Indian fans or players seem to vanish into some hidden corner of cyberspace. It used to annoy me but these days I really find it most amusing that they are so afraid of free speech. They say empty vessels make the most sound and similarly most of the really obnoxious Indian fanboys are really very insecure. I should stress that not all Indian cricket fans are like this but the sensible ones seem to be vastly outnumbered by the rude kids that are apparently representative of 'New India'.

@Zeeshan-Don't be a sook mate (even in jest), I don't believe that's the case. I think most thoughtful Aussie cricketers and fans are likely to be supportive of BD, especially given the amount of bad vibes thrown at you from Indian fans, which we would regard as bully boy tactics. In Aussie culture you don't kick a guy while he is down and if Indian fans want to pick a fight with someone they should try us and leave BD alone.

Finally, as much as I support BD cricket no-one is going to roll over and lose to you because they feel sorry for you, least of all us. You will have to seize those victories from the clutches of your opponent. Nothing feels better than something you have had to fight hard for, something that you know you've earned from hard work and sacrifice. Keep working hard and it will come.

I do send comments in a consistent basis...never published.

Do I care? I do. (as cricinfo is the largest cricket Website in the world)
Do I get upset? I do.
Do I cry? No.

OP has a point. I say shame on cricinfo. cricinfo should change it's name to indinfo which would be more suitable IMHO>

Sub-continental fans didn't care when New Zealand were coming through the ranks, as they were minnows themselves.

As for the larger point, please grow up mate.

Cricinfo's Official Fan Page on Facebook banned me(And I'm still banned/blocked) just because I wrote: "Take that Indians!" after the 4-0 BanglaWash. Do I care? Well, I almost forgot about it until I came across this thread.
