Hi, I just realized that some of my old threads had updates that I didn't notice so I was reading through them... and realized that on I started was missing completely. I went back to the forum and couldn't find it in a search, not even a "This thread has been removed for..."etc. notice.

It was about a sponsor of Mothering.com that had displayed a lack of tolerance for other religions. Other people had similar experiences of intolerant attitudes from the company.

I could care less whether the thread itself is around anymore but I guess I am just wondering about the reasoning, considering the business relationship between Mothering and this company. The letter I wrote them originally showed only the tiniest bit of interest in my concern and so, you can see I am really hoping there is some reason other than "Thou shalt not criticise those from whom we receive money." Please tell me there is.

The thread was removed due to threatened litigation. It has nothing to do with any business relationship as we had already decided to not advertise for the company again. But Mothering does not wish to be drawn into a legal battle over the issue either. So the thread was removed.

Ha. Interesting. They threatened to sue me for asking the original question that opened up the whole problem originally. And also if I ever contacted them again.

Well I am very happy to hear that Mothering is not partnering with them anymore.
