I don´t know why the whole "scam warning" thread has been removed but I think this wasn´t a good idea. Why couldn´t TA just remove any inappropriate posts, if necessary?
Even if we didn´t agree with everybody and with each contribution there have been numerous important hints and advices for upcoming travellers to Istanbul. It has even been a "Top Question" which is now just a topic without substance.
And IMO it was absolutely travel relevant. We have a similar topic in our german Istanbul forum and I hope sincerely that nobody will ask for removing it.Edited: 27 August 2012, 07:40
