Previous thread on McIntosh MB20

A few weeks ago there was a thread regarding where a piece of McIntosh gear is being manufactured (ie not NY). That thread seems to have been removed by moderators. Of all the politically charged threads that crop up on this forum, why was that one removed?
it was said to be made in China if I rememer correctly, and some said blah, blah, blah. Then the other side countered with Blah, Blah, Blah. Then the moderator said thats enough.

At least that’s the way I remember it.
