I have recently been subjected to two lists being deleted by IMDB staff. They DID NOT say why. I have questioned them and they refuse to answer.

Beware your lists are in danger of being deleted by IMDB staff for no reason. As a daily user of this site and someone who has made hundreds of page edits is this a fair way to repay me.

As per the answer that was given by our staff when you inquired about this issue, lists are removed if they are reported by users as being in violation of our content guidelines, and/or at the discretion of our editors.

I'm afraid we are not going to be able to go into details because, as remarked by other users, we have a strict policy of not commenting on the reasons why user-posted content is removed from our boards or elsewhere.

I realize this may sound unfair and one-sided, especially when seen out of context, but we don't suppress content at random or based on a whim. However, we do reserve the right to remove content from our site at our discretion, and these removals are not subject to appeal.

I do apologize for any inconvenience caused by this, and I'm happy to see that you have saved/exported your lists so you'll be able to repost them elsewhere, if you want.
