Recently Discover Magazine published dangerously misleading myths about mercury in tuna, so we wrote a letter of concern to the editors. After receiving no response from the editorial team, we also posted that letter as a comment under the article to give readers all the facts.  To our surprise, it was deleted, multiple times, without explanation.

Per Discover Magazine’s own Terms of Use, our comment meets all of the article community rules for inclusion. Our comment cannot be considered in anyway “unlawful, offensive, threatening, libelous, defamatory, obscene or otherwise objectionable,” the listed justifications for deletion. Removal of our comment appears to be arbitrary at best, biased at worst.

As a magazine devoted to report “developments in science, medicine, technology, and the world around us” it is counterintuitive to us that Discover Magazine would inhibit our ability to present readers with a factually informed perspective, rooted in peer-reviewed research from the FDA, the USDA, and the American Heart Association.

Here’s the original letter, and a follow-up we wrote asking for an explanation of the deletions.
