    Feel how you feel regarding “size of community” or whatever. I’ll say I’m grateful you had somewhere to post it because I wouldn’t have seen it otherwise. But it doesn’t change there is a rule of that community, defined in the sidebar appropriately, and your title didn’t conform to standards. Censorship is a serious accusation, this doesn’t clear it.

        Why against posting the article in the post body? I find that pretty useful.

          To prevent takedown requests from media outlets that feel you have cost them clicks.

            is this really an issue? citation requested, it’s easy to posit but I honestly can’t see sites giving a shit about small aggregators like lemmy.

      “Title must fairly describe link contents. If your title differs from the site’s, it should only be to add context or be more descriptive.”

      I could be wrong, but I think this verbage was just added. Which is fine, because I suggested to mods that they make any rules about this explicit after they nuked the whole discussion. The only message to me was that it was nuked because of an “altered title”.

      Even so. My “title fairly describes link contents”. Check. I changed it exactly to “be more descriptive”. Check. So it still confirms to even the new standards. But at least now there is something that vaguely relates.

      Censorship is a serious accusation, this doesn’t clear it.

      It is serious enough for me to be glad that Lemmy has multiple sites to post things so that no one set of people are gatekeepers to information. I knew there was a reason why I loved the fact that Lemmy is decentralized.

        That’s the same rule text as December 30, 2023: https://archive.ph/RRbPv

        Title must fairly describe link contents. If your title differs from the site’s, it should only be to add context or be more descriptive.

        They did not change their rules today.
