    Apple blocks emails containing phrase 'barely legal teen' from iCloud in new 'anti-pornography' move

    Anyone reminded of Apple's first TV commercial, "1984"?

    Why should apple feel the need to censor my personal emails?

    I've seen this on a few other sites. Tried sending emails with that phrase in it from several different accounts to my @me.com account and they all came through with no problem.

    Can't do anything to replicate this issue.

    Macworld is reputable.

    Maybe you didn't spell it right :) Or, maybe Apple backed off because of the bad publicity.

    Either way, Apple has a pattern with this kind of thing.

    I can't replicate this either. iCloud didn't even bat an eye when I emailed this pic entitled hot naked chicks to myself.
