    Since I cannot find my thread any more, I assume that the Super Moderator of this forum has removed it by authority.

    I did not write any offensive message nor asserting false information but it seems that I have hurt the sensibility of the moderator who, showing poor respect for the old values of education, has removed my thread without notifying it to my personal email.

    Since I do not know how to contact directly this gentleman/lady I am forced to publish my complains publicly.

    I know that this is not a technical question but sometimes it is important to remind that Netiquette and Freedom can happily live together.

    I do not know what happened with your thread.

    However, if it included anything offensive, than you should have received a private message (PM), regarding to what happened, as well as an infraction.

    The most common and usually only reason for moderation is spam, as well as talk about piracy. If none of the two was in your post, than sorry, I don't know what the reason was.

    The mods are fairly relaxed and have a lot of experience, but there are ground rules you agree to on joining.
    The aim of the forums is help others get the best out of their gadgets, not stir up acrimony or conflict.

    I would expect you have a private message spelling out their particular reasons.

    Thank you all for the balanced reply.

    I will not use this podium to start the same argumentations that were (I suppose) censored in my previous thread.

    I have browsed this Forum for a while and, since I have noticed that there was spread acceptance of the jail breaking approach, I started a thread with the aim to get consensus on making our voices heard by Apple (with righteous requests) in order to have good SW right from them instead playing like mouse and cat with them and become "outlaws" by necessity.

    This issue starts from a very technical requests but has the seed of a potential revolution. A company that really indulge the community desires (within reasonable limits that can be discussed upon).

    Thank you again for your attention and patience. This thread can be considered terminated!

    Your original post was removed for very good reason. I strongly suggest you spend a few hours reading through each forum section. I think you'll discover your personal crusade is of little interest to a vast majority of the members. You will also find several posts giving a direct link to where you can voice your discontent directly to Apple.

    Having read your earlier thread, I agree with Aspasia, the mods were correct in removing it. I also think from reading your current thread you did not really listen to the advice of the moderator.
