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.

"For now... that is, until Apple's pervasive "we know what's best for you" arrogance emboldens them to the point where they start modifying DNS settings on iOS devices, to block sites Apple objects to. That would be no less-defensible than how Apple manages the appstore - it's Apple's sandbox after all, so they make the rules, right?"

Which is exactly the point where guys like you stop being credible: when you blame Apple for something you think they could eventually do someday without having anything to sustain this possibility apart from your own sentiment against Apple. Lame.

Typical disingenuous iApologist, desperately looking for anything you can take out of context and twist into a lazy excuse to dismiss criticism of Apple without actually addressing it. Yawn.

And you're not even doing it properly. What kind of Apple fanboy actually addresses someone directly? Don't you know that you're only supposed to respond to people indirectly via weaselly, passive-aggressive snark about "Apple haters"?
