I am very disappointed by the decision to keep the comments thread on the news story about Apple employees contributing to The Trevor Project in the Politics, Religion and Social Issues forum,preventing people with less than 100 posts commenting on it. The whole basis of It Gets Better is people openly discussing that it does get better, that young people should have hope and that there is a future for them. For Mac Rumors to label this topic 'controversial' and limit who can post on this topic sends out exactly the wrong message - that their feelings cannot be openly discussed or are something they should be ashamed of. I do not understand how an effort to stop young people from killing themselves can be controversial. You don't need to agree with homosexuality to believe that we should do whatever we can to stop a loss of life that is tragic and far, far too common. I ask that the moderators reconsider their decision to limit the ability to post in that thread, and move it to the main news discussion forum so more people can participate.
