More censorship on the address field issue!

Luchio noticed it again:
My comment on one of the items of the changelog was deleted, it was something like this:
So you guys are deleting posts about the url dropdown again? Without a hint of an explaination why? That's sad, I'd really like to know how I am breaking blog rules. There are lots of regressions from 11.5 in the dropdown, whether you like it or not. I think the questions are fair, and respectful. But if you want us to shut up about these issues, at least tell us and I'll stop wasting everyone's time.
Thanks for trying to please but restoring the bookmark icons in address bar drop-down is useless for me... It doesn't matter if the page is on history or bookmarks, what you're doing now is explicitly showing the users how bookmarks have much more lower priority than history and searches on the new address field auto-complete drop-down list instead of actually improving it. I also commented how good was nahtanoj999's comment:
Everyone has its own blog and manage its comments the way it wants, but I just can't accept this, I haven't done anything bad!
I think the new URL bar is in every way worse than the current one. One line is harder to read than two, and doesn't save space in any meaningful way, because the dropdown is only there when being used. Taking away favicons makes it hard to distinguish sites. The number of search suggestions has been reduced for some reason. When using a keyword search, it shows history entries along with suggestions for some reason. It also doesn't show past searches. It gets search suggestions from google when I am trying to type a URL. I hope all these are fixed, but that would basically mean going back to the current URL bar.
What's happening here??? Please someone tell me.
