I think that's a little harsh Theodore.
As of right now, I can see 16 posts that were made in the last 5 days. Only 1 of them was edited for content, since it violated the non-discussion of solutions, and 1 was edited to remove some sarcasm. In the 5 days prior to that, we have an additional 13 posts of which 1 was edited for content since it violated the non-discussion of solutions rule. So there has been (in my opinion) very little "censoring".
What I have noticed is that there used to be far more domain-knowledge questions from the old assignment - that does not appear to be happening with the new assignment. I can see at least 2 possible scenarios as to why this might be:
The new assignments are far more straightforward
If the new assignments are more readily understood by candidates, then perhaps they do not see the need to post domain knowledge questions.
Perhaps fewer people are up to stage II.
Personally this is, in my opinion, the more likely reason for the lack of posts on stage II. I see quite a few posts from people asking about the availability of study materials, but that's about it.
Whether people are taking their time because it is harder to garner the information, or whether people are delaying taking the test due to lack of information - either way the end result is the same: fewer questions about part II. Regardless, there has to be someone to start the postings. Selina - feel free to start the ball rolling.

Sir, i can not get a question answered, do you know the max size for the second part of certification, it has to be < 1MB.
please help, i only need to know what is the max size, because i read in somewhere that <1 MB.
People who finished the assignment and had a file size of >1MB "sometimes" had difficulty uploading it. In either case you can still mail the solution. If you mail Sun about the problem they may help you out by asking you to mail the solution to an address

I didn't mean that to be as harsh as it came out, and I apologize most heartily. The questions that were removed were in violation of the rules here - I meant more in the sense that some folks may have held back asking questions out of concern that what they were going to ask was also against policy. I'll try to find better ways to express the thought in the future if I say it again.
Sorry 'bout that, Andrew.
