Just seeing this thread. Is the reason people want it deleted so it doesn't scare people from selling to them? What other reason is there, never had so many rtm's for what seems like a silly thread.

No.
i am not a broker but my 2 cents is that these shutdowns have nothing to do with selling points. I've seen tons of data points and this is the only one who thinks it's bec of selling. Just like with the 100k link that went viral there is no reason for this info to be public and for Amex to read what people's sins are

You have to post your sins for them to be read...

Maybe my "less is more" is catching on?  :)
"LESS IS MORE" It is the cumulative effect that kills deals!!! How many times do I have to say this?  >:(

I would think that this thread would have the opposite effect.

You only figured that out here? I don't have a real opinion on this so if you explain why you feel I am wrong I will probably agree. I just don't see the issue with the thread.

Agreed.
People are traumatized from the last thread discussing amex A/A that arguably caused this whole mess. There is no upside to this thread, so the only possible outcome is negative. Anybody doing anything wrong knows who they are already. There's no need to discuss specifics publicly and rub it in amex's face. It'd be pretty naive to think that they're not monitoring this forum, especially given that they've given specific instructions what to allow on this forum and what to remove.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

IIRC, the OBC unlimited was discussed here. May it rest in peace.  What a run.
