Censorship on Disney.com?

So I made two posts on the Disney Parks blog and none were posted to the site. Each one was critical of the decision to replace the bakery with a Starbucks. I read the terms of use and I don't seem to be in violation unless you read it at its most simple and believe terms of use includes censorship. The posts follow and I'm curious.....Why delete them? The posts aren't offensive....Are they actually that protective that they'd delete legit posts? have they not learned from everyone elses errors?

And for the record I'm a huge fan and NEVER detract from what they do. I'm very much a Disney defender up until now......

The Main Street Bakery will keep its name and theming" - Great it will look traditional. One issue solved.

"Itíll also continue to serve Disney favorites like cookies, brownies and seasonal cupcakes, in addition to Starbucks signature beverages and other items." - They aren't saying its the same stuff they were selling, they said they'lll sell pastries just like all Starbucks do.

My personal favorite line that confirms the above statement as true: "And for those of you who asked in comments, the cinnamon rolls are available at Gastonís Tavern in New Fantasyland, and the ice cream sandwiches are available at Plaza Ice Cream Parlor on Main Street, U.S.A.Ē In other words. You will not find them at the Bakery, go somewhere else.

What makes Disney World great is its uniqueness. We know have an Edyís ice cream shop bumping up against a Starbucks. Why not close the Emporium and open a GAP? Whatís the difference?
Sell the Starbucks coffee, by all means, Iím a fan. Just replace the stuff they sell in those carts all over the place. Replacing a bakery with a coffee shop is an astonishing case of a company being blind to its own product. You want to replace the pastries please do, but do something I canít by at my local mall.
