I guess when you have billions of dollars in revenue each quarter, you think you can take on anyone about anything.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis

That is nuts.


And according to Lawrence Lessig, Apple is also preventing its users from posting innocent questions about the deletions.

Mr Lessig personally experienced Apple's censors today, when two of his comments were disallowed — with one removed for forum violation — when he joined the growing throngs of iOS 7 upgrade failure victims.
