Apple censorship, again

It's sickening that Apple thinks it's OK to censor (remove) posts from their forums. It's not the first time they've done this, either.

I consider it entrapment -- Apple hosts these forums, as the obvious place where we all can go to discuss any issues we have. As with any forum, there's a natural implicit assumption of non-interference, much like I expect my ISP not to block my visits to random web-sites or my email provider to block certain emails or the local coffee shop to disallow discussions about certain topics.

But then, suddenly, Apple acts like China: they censor that which they disagree with.

C'mon Apple!

You should be above such draconian behavior. If you disagree with what's being said, play fair! Come out and discuss the topic, explain your viewpoint, convince us.
