LinkedIn Censorship?

I got one of those 'must read' lists of links to LinkedIn Pulse stories that LinkedIn sends all the time.

This was one of them:

Religious People have lesser IQ than non-believers !

Navid Khiabani
Charts speak for themselves :

The link redirects to LinkedIn Pulse's homepage - I thought that was odd so I did some searching and found that the author had a bunch of articles on LinkedIn - none of them work now - nor does the author's profile.

Can't find the story of why they would send a link to a story - then obliterate the presence of the author and his writings.

I don't suppose anyone knows more about this?

@hingehead,
Maybe the guy was spamming under their definition.

@jespah,
I don' t think so Jes. Linked in Pulse is generated from content they rate/rank - it's not random he had a bunch of other articles he'd written, all gone.

OH! I just rechecked and everything has been reinstated. I wonder what the heck that was about? Maybe someone else flagged it as innapropriate, they killed it automatically and on review decided it was a bad call?

@hingehead,
Never-the-less there's a bunch of Christians in the comments demanding he stop his bullying ;-)

I hadn't realised that those linkedin pulse stories weren't from actual news sources.

Never really understood linkedin I guess.

@hingehead,
LinkedIn Pulse comes from stuff people post. It's not vetted or anything. I've seen all sorts of junk in there.

@jespah,
I hadn't realised. I'm not a fan. Now even less.
