Why was the thread about Boeing hidding MAx faults removed?

Mon Oct 28, 2019 12:07 pm

Why was this removed?
There was no reason, that I can see to remove it. There was hardly any replys, alright the 5 or there were were reasonable.
I was half way through the linked article when thw thread was removed. The artical was factual, although the inrences drawn about motives were debatable but would have encouraged a healthy debate.
Please put it back! Censorung bad news & disagreeable opinion is a VERY bad policy.

It is probably a violation of rule 1.i.5.

Write a para of your own take on the topic in your own words.
Don't just say let's discuss.
Don't discuss why the previous topics were deleted.

Keep in mind there are 100s of personas eagerly waiting to get the topic deleted. They will find a violation and report the topic.
The burden is on you to make it stick and don't get emotional.

It looks like the site was trying to cover it up indeed. Is the site being intimidated by Boeing lawyers just like the article said?

:sarcastic:

Or, it was just a breach of forum rules, like the previous poster explained very well.

No one is trying to cover up anything. There's simply an expectation that users follow the rules, which is not a difficult concept. If users start a thread, they are required to include their own commentary. That is very clearly outlined in forum rules. This is a discussion forum, not a news site. Threads from users not including their own comments to begin a discussion are subject to deletion.

Instead of being convinced we're all in on some massive conspiracy, maybe consider that there's a far more logical reason. It's pretty ridiculous to accuse us of something when someone else was in the wrong.

No, pretty unlikely. I was in the process of pointing out in the Mk 2 version that the thread starter was probably in breach of the rules when it was deleted.
