H-E-L-P ... One review missing, what happened?

Yesterday I had 1381 reviews. Today, only 1380. 

I guess one review has been removed but how and why did that happen? In 8 years, I never had that problem, I had reviews taking many days to get published, some being declined, but once a review was "in the bank", I never had to be worried about a removal.

This is unprecedented and quite alarming because I can't stand the idea that reviews that've been here for many years could be removed 'just like that'... and right now, I can't even tell which one disappeared, and why it did (I didn't get a notice or anything of that sort).

Please, any help of insight would be much appreciated.


PS: And allow me to be honest and straightforward; IMDb has been perhaps my only source of fun and satisfaction these last months (which is quite indicative of how dull the rest of my life is) and these problems are not only frustrating but discouraging, not sure I want to waste my energy  anymore if it's for something that can be removed any day.

This is my nightmare.  One's deleted reviews used to be accounted for on one's review page, so you'd know if your reviews were deleted.  Now, I don't know if I'd even notice if one were deleted--maybe they have been for all I know.  I don't read my older reviews as much anymore because it's more difficult to search reviews now.

A while back and by chance, I read one of my reviews and found that supposed inappropriate language (it wasn't, by the way) had been changed by IMDb to something that rendered the statement confusing and grammatically incorrect.  To be fair, though, IMDb may have sent me an email regarding this, although I didn't notice it other than that the review had been approved, not that changes had been made to it.

This is worth noting as a separate idea so we have moved it to one.
