The Apple Thought Police
February 18, 2012
I recently asked a few questions on the Apple Forum. Specifically it was about iCloud, Snow Leopard and the lack of Apple support for the combined technologies. I had 7 posts removed when I asked other forum members what they thought of this issue. I even received a brief response to say that other members know about the Apple Thought Police.
So, myself and many others have now added a new tag to Apple’s forum database: apple_thought_police
I’m convinced that the Apple forum moderators are paid staff and instructed to gag us. I find censoring acceptable when it blocks racial hatred, terrorism and other nefarious activities. But when it blocks a genuine call for help then it’s not acceptable.
The Apple moderators sometimes seem to get a little excited about censorship. So, I our once loved tech-friend, Apple, is now gagging our freedom to comment and ask questions. What a shame.
