Since 1997, you’ve been coming to to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, is growing and changing. On May 1, we’re saying goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Reviews no longer visible due to it being flagged - how can this be undone?

I just noticed that my reviews on B&N are no longer visible to everyone.  This is the notice that I got on my reviews profile:


Your Review is no longer visible by others because it contains inappropriate language which violates our Terms of Use. If you update your content, it will be reconsidered by our moderators within three business days. This message will be removed when your content is approved.


I am confused why this is so when I am sure that I did not post any offensive material or inappropriate language on the reviews that I did!  How can this be resolved?  I do not know which review was offensive!

OR why my reviews are marked offensive!

See my reply to your post on the thread from 2012.  Your review contains a word that is prohibited for use by B&N.  You should contact the Administrator to have your review unlocked so that you might edit or repost it.
