My BBC appeal about a removed comment has now been settled.
From the Beeb’s Central Communities Team:
Dear Campaign Outsider
Thank you for your email. As you say, your comment contained no content discussing the subject of the blog post it was posted beneath, just the title of your blog entry and a link to your blog, so there is very little editorial justification for the link to your site. The BBC cannot be used simply as a platform to increase the profile of other websites as this breaks the guidelines on promotion and advertising.

Next time, I’ll just clip ‘n’ paste the post. I don’t want to get in Dutch with the BBC again.
Much worse than dumping me.
