This is a real mess. In less than 14 days, I have restored my iPhone 3G 7 times, out of a complete lock down frozen as an iceberg. Every single time was related with the downloading or upgrading of an application. It defeats the purpose to have the App store icon on my home screen if I am unable to use it. Apple, I had never seen in my 28 years of using your products such a mess. Between the mobileme melt down and my iPhone being rendered unusable every other day this does not look good. My first iPhone edge never had to be restore till 2.0 arrived , I personally think 2.0 is a great software but to ambitious for the computing power that the iPhone has

Similar thing happened to me when I posted on Apple with my Leopard browser problem

Agree, that's why I will never post a message on the Apple Discussion Board ever again.

I had major internet browser issues with Leopard, with it shutting down for a period of 8-10 hours a few months ago. Tried to post a message on Apple discussion board. Nothing inflammatory, nothing curse words and than I get an email saying my post had been deleted. I do not know who manages the board but my problem seemed to be widespread because I posted the same message on macrumors and others had the same problems.

The internet browser problems resolved by the next day but it was some type of OS problem and maybe Apple knows somethings is wrong but doesn't want to acknowledge the problem yet.

Funny that Apple is reading all the forum posts, because they certainly aren't monitoring the App Store apps or feedback comments. You can post anything you want there!

Yes, like it says in their TOS:
Non-constructive rants or complaints

It's not exactly cool, but they don't hide it either. Lots of businesses have the same policy on the forums that they own and operate. That's what independent forums are for. ;) I'm on several different forums, and each have their own TOS, some of which I think are BS, and some of which I appreciate. It's my choice to abide by the rules or not post.

This is nothing new, they've always deleted threads that were critical. But yes, it sucks that they monitor their forums yet not the app store submissions.

Well, it does seem to fit the non-constructive thing. I don't blame them for doing it. I mean it is their forum, plus their discussion boards are in the support portion of the Web site. They're mostly for p2p help, not b#%&hing.

This is why places like MacRumors exist. Third-party peeps don't have as much of an interest in painting the company in a bright light. This is why I stopped subscribing to the magazine put out by my college's athletic department. It was all sunshine up their butts stuff without anything critical ever being said. YAWN.

APPLE IS REMOVING POSTS AT THE DISCUSSION FORUMS THAT SOUND TOO MUCH OF A COMPLAINT

Happened to me today. I posted, "If I had known Pages 5 was such crap [and] can actually remove content, I would not have installed it. Strictly speaking I could take my P5 docs and save as Pages 09, but I am simply being careful of which version opens which doc."

Their reasoning was "because it contained either product feedback or feature requests".

Then why doesn't it post right away. I thought it was cuz apple wanted to read them first but the other day I read a review on flappy bird about this guy who shot someone and then playing flappy bird over their body.
