Just wondering if anyone managed to read that post on the SS forum by a contributor who was supposedly being sued? The post was only viewable for a very short period of time and then it looked like it was removed. Apparently, according to the poster, it was an editorial photo he / she took that landed him in hot water. He / she mentioned he / she took a photo of a company's logo and submitted it which was the cause of the issue. He / she didn't say which company it was. Though it wasn't really clear from the post whether he / she was actually being sued or if the company was threatening to sue. The image was taken down regardless.

That's strange. It's definitely gone from my screen. I even hit the back arrow on my browser and got a message that this page isn't available anymore.

It's accessible on my phone just now and was visible via my computer earlier this morning.

I confirm there's an issue: the thread isn't visible anymore for me on the list of the most recent messages. However, it's still accessible through my browsing history and through the normal path on the forum.

I think some of you are talking about SS fourm thread and others are talking about MS group forum thread.

Oh, it does say SS forum but I assumed it meant the post on msg. Is it a different case?

The OP talked about the SS forum, but you pointed out there was a thread here talking about it, a few posts down. From that point, I thought we were talking about here, too.

It certainly sounds like the same case, so the OP could check the thread here.

The sued contributor maybe open thread first in SS forum and the thread was deleted, and the open post here... i think it is the same case...

I was referring to the SS forum at the SS website - the main one called 'Contributor Experience.' Sue, when you said that the post was the fourth one down the page, I thought you were also referring to the forum at SS. And that made me extremely puzzled because I was trying to work out why I could no longer see it but you could.

And yea I did see the recent post here on the MSG website about suing. It's a fair chance that it was made by the same individual but one cannot be 100% sure. The post on the SS forum made no mention of what kind of company they were dealing with.
