Serious question here so let's get a consensus before this post is also deleted.


There was an article posted this afternoon by Joker51 I believe it was, that looked like an anti AMD PR spin article.
The article was referring to the AMD partnership where AMD cpu technology was licensed to a China based company.

This partnership is old news and most [H] users pointed out that this partnership was known for over a year and the timing of Wall street journal article looked suspect with the Ryzen 3000 release about 10 days out.

There were multiple conversations across approximately 10 [H] users today, and yet the forum post has been entirely deleted and erased from the site.

Did any of you also see this forum discussion today?
And why would it be completely deleted?
I have never been involved in an [H] discussion that was entirely deleted and curious to hear your thoughts on this.

Would not have expected such a hot topic to be deleted and can only guess that perhaps under new ownership this site no longer believes in free flow of communication on Wall Street Journal AMD articles.

Well also, Op created a thread that already exist in Soapbox, better to just lock the thread now.
Actually, the OP was suggesting that the thread had disappeared since he could no longer find it and he thought that we had hidden it as some sort of cover up ..when the reality is that it was moved into the soapbox and since OP is not a subscriber, he can no longer see it....

rest assured, no one here is doing any such thing....if you pony up 5 bucks for a Genmay sub you can see for yourself...if not, you will just have to take our word for it
