Replacing tokens for a large organization is very disruptive, and, according to an RSA manager, 'there is no guarantee that it won't happen again.'"

Submission + - Nokia gags discussion of partnership with Microsof (

Tasha26 writes: After reading a recent Slashdot article about Nokia, I thought I'd discuss the Microsoft partnership on their own Forum and get some insight. I posted it under "News Announcements and Job Listings," so as not to interfere with programming discussions. Unfortuantely my thread was closed within 24 hours by a Nokia employee: Ron Liechty (Manager Forum Nokia Online Community). He even sent me a private message saying that it was off topic. Did I really do something wrong here or was this a daft move by Nokia?
