Censorship by Microsoft? "Changes to Power BI Free are coming on June 1, 2017."

The topic "Changes to Power BI Free are coming on June 1, 2017." on this forum is not available anymore! (see the image below)
Is Microsoft trying to hide it?!?

I'm so sorry guys!  We moved the threads to a dedicated board so that all of the questions about the changes were together in one place for easy reference, but there was a permissions problem.  I have fixed this now, I believe.  You should have access to the board now, can someone please confirm and let me know??  Here's the board:  https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Moderated-Discussions/bd-p/ModeratedDiscussion.

 

Sorry again for the trouble and drama.  No censorship - just a mistake. :s

🙂  thanks for your understanding.

@Sandy I left a comment at the original post, and it doesn't show up either at the original thread here:

https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Changes-to-the-free-Power-BI/May-3-announcement-FAQ/td-p/167399

...or the 'spun off' thread there:

http://community.powerbi.com/t5/Moderated-Discussions/Re-May-3-announcement-FAQ/td-p/168903

 

And I know I'm not the only one that this has happenned to.  Can you look into this, and advise what has hapenned to comments that people have left that still have not shown up on either thread?

Oh no!  I thought I had it fixed.  Let me look into what happened with those posts.

It's still sitting in the unmoderated queue at that original thread. And I suspect you have a lot more sitting in that queue. The moderator may well have made an intentional call not to approve my comment and others. Which would be dissappointing.

@jeffreyweir I just wanted to let you know I'm still looking into this - how to get the replies shifted over as well.  Didn't want you to think I forgot.  Stay tuned.

Censorship? I was wondering why I cannot see my own post - clear cache, use anohter PC to search....  I thought you value our feedback. Please say it ain't so.

Yes, they have deleted several threads that start which contain any criticism of the change in the service. I think that easily qualifies as censorship.

 

It's a sad day but you just can't trust them Time to leave PowerBI behind.

 

And how long before this thread is deleted and we all get banned?

Yep, I received the same message... I hope this is a 'mistake', if they also start to censor their formums i may just become a linux fan...
