No problem with our border, but teams coming through the Tsagannuur border are having lots of problems and it looks like the teams there are blaming the Adventurists. Even more worrying is that SMS posts that complain about the problems are getting deleted. Censorship? It looks like it. We all knew the official forums were getting censored but it is a bit much to delete the posts from teams.
I only realised because I get the twitter updates through on email but before I read them they were gone. Luckily some of the messages got stuck in the google cache so I could read the full post. Pretty much all the messages critical of the Adventurists had been deleted from the teams sites:
DELETED!

Having some borst in a yurt for lunch, brilliant. Henry."

With deposits not yet paid back to the teams nobody wants to risk getting in a bigger argument with the Adventurists. This isn't meant to be a place to slander the adventurists, just to get to the truth of what is going on as a lot of people aren't happy.
