Default Digital Manipulation: New Rejection?

I had submitted this shot and it was rejected for foreground clutter, I assumed it was the pole in the front that was just touching the coupler of one of the locos. I decided it would be easy to clone out real quick and try and resubmission, which was rejected for digital manipulation, which is something I've never seen before. From my time in the forums, it seems one of the most common pieces of advice given in addition to an asked question is about cloning out some distracting item, whether its wires, cones, etc. so I was rather surprised by this. I'm all for not allowing photos where extra elements were photoshopped in, but it seems cloning out something like a wire or pole is common and suggested practice. Any one else have thoughts on this?
