Who censored Wellcitedevidence?

Wellcitedevidence had a good run on CiF from 15 September to 24 November before being deleted shortly after this post from BeautifulBurnout appeared:

Wow. You are right. The Cuban Missile crisis is arguably the moment when the Cold War came closest to turning into a nuclear conflict.

This renders everything in my post null and void and not worth the pixels it inhabits on the screen.

My bad, bitey.

It was in response to this from Wellcitedevidence:

You must have missed the Cuban missile crisis generally regarded as the moment in which the Cold War came closest to turning into a nuclear conflict.

Which challenged her infantile view that 1983 “was period in history when the Cold War was at its most threatening”, (sic)

So congratulations once again Censor in Chief and something more to regale your grandchildren with.

Update 1

MrsB confidently reports:

You, and many others, automatically point the finger, making accusations when posts and/or posters’ accounts are deleted, based upon what seems to be a, frankly, insulting premise, ie that the mods are so thick that they cannot come to their own conclusions and make their own decisions without someone reporting an issue to them first.

Hannah Waldram community coordinator on the news team at guardian.co.uk writes:

Ah thanks – but remember we have a reactive moderation system so the mods won’t see stuff unless you report it.

So who is right?
