But, that's a pretty big one.

@she mentions a rule against soapboxing as the reason for the post's removal. On the side bar I see now, that is not a rule.

Was that rule removed in the past two hours (when @she made the commend) or was that made up?

"Soapboxing" strikes me as a very vague and broad term. It could easily be misused

Agreed. Worse, it's not even a valid reason for removing a post.

Its pretty straight forward. If someone's using leading questions typical of the ones you see in tabloids in order to push a theory, its called soapboxing.

They were definitely trying to invoke rule #3, but rule #3 has nothing about soapboxing.

At least it doesn't right now. Maybe the rule has been modified, but it looks more likely that @she just made that up.

I think it counts as clickbait. The entire point of the question was to get people to read OP's opinion.

It's literally under rule 3

Spam, marketing, clickbait, self-promotion & soap boxing are not allowed

This is just more odd business.

When I looked at the side bar ealier, soap boxing was definitely not listed.

Someone else took a screen capture: https://slimgur.com/images/2015/08/11/d34e52b6c1779dc984b8e5e424bbd366.png

See? Nothing about soap boxing.

Some one is literally changing the rules after the fact.
