Online moderation by the newspapers of Mauritius

The newspapers of Mauritius have often complained that they are not treated as they should and that sometimes their voice cannot be heard due to governmental interference.

Maybe they should rethink their comment moderation strategies on their website first as my comments are rarely posted on their websites. And my comments are perfectly innocent: no swear words, no insults, no trolling and no spamming. Yet, it's a miracle if one of my comments is posted on a newspaper website ,whether it be L'Express or Le Défi (which I'm not even going to bother visiting again because the layout is so bad).

Or it could also be that they don't bother moderating comments that are posted several days after the articles have been published.

...I need to rethink my comment posting strategy.
