missing review

Hi,


I've just seen that, on top of the four reviews still pending from 3-4 days ago, since just a matter of minutes ago it appears that one of my reviews is missing. Instead of 12,192 I now have 12,191. With as many reviews as I have and with the new layout, I have no way of knowing which review of mine was deleted and why. This is to ask for clarification as to which one it is, why it's been deleted if done so and also to ask if the review in question can be reinstated.


My reviews have always been, or at least aim to be, very respectful, sincere and balanced. They have always been my own work, have always said along the lines of "there is the agreement" or "don't agree" if I share the same pros and cons as other viewers annd always in my own words,  and explain my reasons why that is the case. And I have always been careful to not violate terms and conditions, being a person known to be responsive to authority which can at times be a detriment, so this deletion is a mystery to me.


I know I occasionally got overly passionate when mentioning excessive critic bashing (which actually I have only done occasionally), a pet peeve of mine because it is overused and abused and has always resorted to personal attacks and conspiracy theories (which should be deemed unacceptable when talking about film). But it never got in the way of actually talking in an evaluative way about the pros and cons of a film, always was mentioned in very brief passing so was easy to be ignored by anybody reading the review, it never once got personal and I have always tried to be careful not reaching the over-condescending line, in fact the few times I did that I actually apologised, condescending people don't do that. That cannot be the reason because not once was it worded hatefully, filled up the entire review and it is nothing compared to many reviews somehow approved let alone found useful, which do violate terms and conditions.


It also makes me feel already that the review in question was not reported for a legitimate reason and was done out of spite, like a lot of the reviews reported for abuse are it seems. Being a prolific and long-term reviewer it is frustrating and worrying that this has happened. I have anxiety and health problems, including epilepsy and stress has been known to trigger it, so it is preferable that this is dealt with and I shouldn't be feeling this way, I'm stressed enough as it is with four of my reviews being delayed for approval though am completely understanding of why. Can anybody help please?

Thank you. Here is the link to my account in case you don't know who I am.

If the review has been deleted due to an abuse report, was the review in question actually read before it was deleted or was it a case of anything that is reported is deleted? I try to be one of the most civil and honest reviewers/users on IMDb (something I have been praised for by other users that I have made friends with since), yet I seem to be punished for no reason (my honest feelings on this, I can see no reasons why any of my reviews would be deleted if that is indeed the case). I have had a couple of reviews deleted in the past but they were reinstated when it was proven they were reported out of spite. Whereas there are reviews insulting critics and people with different views to them or are abusing the review system with terms and conditions-violations or spamming and are getting away with it, even when called out, when they are far worthier of deletion.

Hi Bethany -

I just reviewed your account and did not see any recently removed reviews, however, please note that if a review was removed prior to the system migration, our staff are unable to track information on the old system.

With that being said, there may be a slight issue with your Review count, I observed that you currently have 4 reviews pending and 12,189 approved and listed on the site, though your current count is 12, 191.  It's possible that the inconsistency may be due to the processing of recent reviews, however, I have filed a ticket with our technical team to check.  As soon as I have confirmation on this I will let you know here.
