Thank you for sharing. We understand! There is no need for embarrassment as most of us have or are having these experiences of manipulation. Do check the source as sometimes an outside force can interfere not just the filtration or change from the forum. Most of us are of open mind here.
Just keeping writing and posting no matter what app or forum you are using. That forum will filter and alter it to fit the page or delete it. Do not take it personal. Do share in interactions so we all may learn from it or find a solution as many of us face the same difficulties here in the cyber world.
I find there is no one way; whatever works for you is best. Remember to be patient with yourself and the forum as transition is most always in motion.
Keep an eye on the changes being made to your material or the forum and post it as you have done here. It is something we have in a common thread of use and discussion.
