    I posted a complaint on the Apple iTunes forum critical of Apple's treatment of the Daily Show, and Apple deleted it! It didn't have any cuss words, it wasn't threatening etc. Why do they delete things that are criticize them? It makes me wary to buy any more Apple products if they cannot at least address my complaint instead of deleting my comment. If they have to be that defensive, how can I trust their products?

    I don't see the link between them censoring their site and the quality of their products though. :)

    Trust me, if you did the same thing with Microsoft on the MSDN forums, the Channel 9 forums, or the ASP.NET forums, they would've done the same thing, but in an even worse way. ;)

    Of course, your thread had nothing to do with products or services, did it? It sounds as though they did the right thing because you posted something that wasn't appropriate for their forums.

    Um, they are SELLING me a service to download the Daily Show, I was promised it would be delivered in a timely fashion, and they aren't so I complained. And they deleted it instead of responding to it, or at least ignoring it. If they decided to ignore it I wouldn't be that upset, but they had to delete it because they couldn't take the criticism.

    Yes, but not on 99% of the Linux forums. I'm switching to Linux not windows :p

    That's because Linux users can't read.

    You make it seem as my response was unwarranted, but considering that you didn't specify the circumstances of the situation, who could know?

    Did you contact customer service first?

    LOL If Slashdot consist of mainly Linux users, then that would make sense....seeing as how the forums are set up on Slashdot

    If you want to complain about Apple, posting in Discussion forms is not the right place. Generally, Apple do not look at these boards - though you do get Apple employees helping out from time to time.

    Try using the feed back forms on the Apple website.

    Apple's boards are notorious for their disappearing threads or single posts. They delete a lot.

    MadJew...can I lick your ears, too? Please? ;)

    Back on topic! Anyways, I feel that most of the problems with the Daily Show are Comedy Central's problem. It is hard to quickly digitize something only hours after it's filmed for tv. Don't get me started on their treatment of South Park... So maybe Apple just doesn't want criticism about something that it has no control over.

    Apple's discussion pages are not for complaining about Apple products or services, but to find solutions to problems with those products or services.
