Apple is more tolerant than this discussion board...so I would agree that you had to do something really stupid to get banned. It's funny though...Apple's board will let you disagree and make anti-apple statements...unlike this board. I don't know how many times RowerCpu has edited or deleted one of my posts. I don't get it...scared of a fair discussion? I can't count the number of personal insults, flames and name calling I have endured...those posts aren't deleted. Oh well, I guess it is good to know that Apple apologests are more concerned about protecting and defending the Apple way than Apple itself.
