I posted this thread in the iPod + iTunes Forum: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=293938 It got locked within 20 mins. The reason for this? That there is many 'other' ways for members to share their music tastes. Should that mean something to me? It doesn't. There are many places where users can get desktop backgrounds from every month, but that doesn't stop the threads cropping up all the time in the forum. There are many ways that various things can be done. What was so wrong with my post that it warranted deletion? I hardly think it was going to turn into a war of music. Perhaps the mods should head on over to the Politcal discussion forum and focus their energies there. There is plenty of action if thats what your after. The bottom line, the quality of moderation is declining. I posted just after my thread above was closed. Guess what? The thread was deleted (not wastelanded) without notice. This one will probably be deleted too, in an attempt to silence the users who might oppose something.
