    Holy Reality Distortion Field Batman --Apple has begun to delete threads on their discussion forum that complain about reception troubles or discuss Consumer Report's negative evaluation of the iPhone:


    Apple tech-support chatter about Consumer Reports' iPhone snub vanishes
    The Washington Post Rob Pegoraro
    July 13, 2010

    The saga of the iPhone 4's possible reception flaws -- the subject of a harsh Consumer Reports blog post yesterday -- has taken another, weirder turn. Users are complaining that after they post a comment or a query about CR's refusal to recommend the phone on Apple's tech-support forum, company representatives delete the thread.

    The Unofficial Apple Weblog wrote about this development in an update this morning. Writer TJ Luoma counted six cases of discussion threads mysteriously vanishing, to be replaced by this vague notice: "Error: you do not have permission to view the requested forum or category." The Luoma post on the AOL-owned blog noted a parallel to the theme of Apple's most famous commercial:
    Want some overwrought comparisons to Orwell's 1984? Apple seems to be begging for it. ...

    haven't checked myself -- just quoting the Post article

    (maybe not all threads -- maybe just the ones that get nasty ??)

    many had it, but was always swept under the carpet by apple.
    I huge petition was started on other forums, but you wouldn't hear a peep of it on apple's forums.
    I had the issue still after three times with AppleCare.
    You couldn't even ask if anyone else still had the issue - your question would disappear as quickly as you made it.
    How do you like them apples?

    this sounds like what you experienced, no ??

    Yes, Yes!
    Apple surely deletes threads - aggressively.

    My post about not seeing deleted threads was a simple attempt at humor.

    all this "dry" humour round here recently has been leaving poor ol' BARYE very discombobulated

    You wouldnt see a thread if it was deleted - that's kinda the whole point of deleting it!
