Steve Jobs started off his 2010 WWDC keynote speech (Engadget liveblog) with a calculated strike against one of the accusations swirling against Apple.

Jobs denied these allegations of unfairness and fickle whims. He pointed out that 95% of apps are approved within 7 days. He went on to state that the only reasons apps were rejected was if they don't work as advertised, use private APIs or crash. What he neglected to mention is that, while Apple accepts almost any app, they are also willing to later ban that app for almost any reason.
