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.

SO you think it's a good thing Apple deletes any email containing the phrase "barely legal teens"? This is not spam filtering, it's deleting messages without asking you . What if it was an important email from a relative saying something like "Can you take me to the hospital tomorrow? Since my children are barely legal teens, they can't drive."
