    Anyone else noticed that seemingly EVERY Macrumors ZiPhone.org Thread created here is being deleted?! Without a reason given either!

    It seems jailbreaking discussion is taboo on macrumors.com -- how ridiculous.

    UPDATE: It looks like someone is moving the threads from the main iPhone section to iPhone Hacks and Apps -- but there is no notification that this happened nor link from one to the other...

    If you're concerned about forum rules, you're probably going to get a better response by PM'ing a moderator.

    It's not taboo and we do allow it.
    It's called moderation, things get moved from time to time when they're deemed to be in the wrong place.

    As long as you are set to automatically subscribe to threads, you remain subscribed to the thread even if we move it or change its title. So you should not be "losing" them. They should continue to be right there in your subscription list, you should continue to receive notifications about them, etc. If we merge you into a thread, I think you're automatically subscribed to that also.
