Apple Well paint me red and call me a girl scout. "In its latest push to get porn off your computer, Apple now deletes all iCloud emails that contain the phrase 'barely legal teens'. It doesn't send the messages to spam, or flag them, it just straight up deletes them, and there's nothing you can do about it." So, at least we can finally put that silly myth to rest that Apple respects users' privacy. They scan your emails, including attachments, just like everyone else.

As much as I loathe this from a privacy perspective, the fact that they are storing your emails on their servers (and the legal issues with their then potentially being complicit in distributing underage porn) means that this is somewhat forgivable.
