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.

I know it's going against the trend, but it would be nice if some news was checked. Certainly if it's so easy and quick to do as this one.

No doubt the writer's email and Cult of Mac's one disappeared, but it would be more interesting to find what really happened rather than just copy news and present it as fact. They may use a certain email client that thinks it's spam, an ISP may do it, perhaps some US states do it, perhaps Apple does it but only to certain users under certain conditions.

Anything is possible. The only thing I can know for certain is that my emails arrive just fine and I'm seeing others report the same.
