Brooklinks is a daily selection of Brooklyn-related news stories, blog items and images.

Your last link, a review of Franny's in Prospect Heights, was something I wrote up and posted on Chowhound. Chowhound promptly removed it and send me a mail informing me that they don't accept any posts about Franny's due to a spate of "suspicious" posts. It's fairly ridiculous that you can't write anything about one of the highest-profile restaurants in Brooklyn on Chowhound.

I put my review up on my own blog instead.

A Google Blog Search for chowhound censorship produces a few interesting results, but when you get down to it, it's their site and they can delete whatever they want for whatever reasons they want.

Not only can the CH censors delete whatever they want for whatever reason they choose, but even asking for an explanation of why a post was deleted can result in further deletions and possible expulsion.

This approach to moderation sounds like the justice systems of various oppressive regimes over the years. The accused has no knowledge of the charges against him or her, no trial, and no appeal.
