Unsolicited editing

On the 17th September 2019, I posted my review of "The Return of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1994)".

I have only just accessed and checked this to discover that although 'approved', it has been EDITED - WITHOUT MY PERMISSION!

This is NOT ON! This is underhand and - probably - ILLEGAL in some way... to change my words!!!

I would appreciate a response (NOT from "ACT I", please).

Please read this. Note the last section highlighted and underlined.

What not to include:

Resist the temptation to review on other reviews or features visible on the page. This information (and its position on the page) is subject to change without notice. A review form is not an appropriate place to tell us there are errors in the database. If you'd like to tell us about a specific problem, please click the 'Edit page' button near the bottom of the title page.

IMDb is pleased to provide this forum for you to air your opinions on your favorite (or not-so-favorite) movies and TV-series. While we appreciate your time and reviews, we respectfully request that you refrain from including the following in your review:

  • Avoid unannounced spoilers! Please don't reveal crucial plot elements, if you include spoilers without warning readers in advance, your review may be subject to removal. To label a spoiler make sure you check the 'contains spoilers' checkbox. Also, please never include spoilers in your review header as this is always visible.
  • Square brackets [ and ] are not allowed apart from when used to link names and titles
  • Phone numbers, mail addresses, URLs, email addresses, links to Twitter or Facebook pages etc.
  • Availability, price, or ordering/shipping information.
  • Advertising, promotions or solicitations of any kind
  • Writing in ALL-CAPS! Writing sentences in all-uppercase characters is considered "SHOUTING" and must be avoided.

Author gave his permission.
Ever hear of terms of service?
It acknowledges your knowledge of all terms therein.
So please do not mislead persons here because you are upset at IMDb.
Stick to your own topic and stop being an agitator on other posts for the pure reason of disrupting normal operations.

If your intent is to disrupt only and not "Help"  you will eventually have your account tagged. You already have issues with contribution blocking on your account with IMDb. It could extend to Get Satisfaction. Take it from someone who crossed the line. I know where that line is. You are very close.
Please take my advice and stick to your post.
Your intent is to disrupt.
Not to Help.
