I'm on that forum quite a bit and at times it is very slow. They also have outages much more frequent then this site and
reader50 is correct, the mods/admins are very active in deleting posts. Not to sound like a fanboy but apple supports the forum so they have every right to restrict what can and cannot be said. Even so they do seem a tad overly zealous.
All in all its not a bad forum, there's a handful of folks that post a lot of info, very help people. Most people tend to comport themselves over there better then your typical forum, that is less flaming.
