- similar posts exist on main Meta and are featured there, and
- the problematic post is still present on MSO, only that the "featured" tag got removed from it
What kind of legal concerns might cause such an action? If the post content is problematic, only removing the post (or the problematic part) would help. Featuring posts is a responsibility of moderators, who represent the community, not the company, so I don't think there is a risk of treating the post (or its being featured) as a statement coming from company. So what concerns might be present here?
