    Just wanted to show proof that apple has and continued to remove my posts with any mention of flexgate. At first, ny original post did not contain pictures, and it remained on the website for about tow to three days. The moment I added pictures it got deleted, which I followed to make another post with the email I received from them, and once again, removed. Now I will post the most recent email, with the screenshots of my the prior email to that, which included the pictures. It may be a little hard to follow, but I just wanted to have evidence.

    ITs apple's supported site, and they fund the site. Don't like it, find another, simple as that. They remove all sorts of posts/threads because it goes against their rules, and/or policies.

    We need a collection house for each incident. Way to log each case with photos, video, year/model/size, what did Apple do to make it right?

    Also I'll start looking into previous law firms that have brought class action suits against Apple and see if they'll bite.

    It’s fairly simple. You linked to iFixIt which is a site dedicated to opening and fixing the device yourself.

    Apple explained this quite clearly in the email, so I’m not sure where your confusion or frustration is coming from TBH.

    Some just go further than others that's all. (....and others way overboard)

    control is control, but there is also something called freedom.

    Post it again without linking to iFixit, I want to see what happens. I suspect Apple wants to censor Flexgate as much as they can since it'll be severely expensive to launch another repair program in addition to keyboard-gate.

    You’re assuming the pictures are the cause, but correlation isn’t causation. Could just be coincidental timing.

    figures. Have you sent feedback on apple.com/feedback ? How about visiting the stores? I went in to the genius bar, and they only gave me paid repair options even though all diagnostics showed my computer was alright.
