The reader comment below (beneath the line of a Guardian editorial on the Syrian crisis), which suggests that Israel should be destroyed by arming its enemies with nuclear weapons, has remained up so far for almost 12 hours.
Those familiar with CiF Watch would of course understand that this one example is indicative of a broader problem at ‘Comment is Free’. As we’ve shown in countless posts, CiF moderators often demonstrate egregious double standards when determining which comments get deleted – decisions purportedly based on whether such comments violate their ‘Community Standards‘.
UPDATE: Shortly after our post, the comment was deleted by ‘CiF’ moderators.
