f anyone is trying to find their original picture files, open a Finder window > Places / your user name / Pictures / Iphoto Library ( Left click and select "Show Package Contents" / Originals.
1. That's not the correct way to do it, and can easily lead to dataloss for inexperienced users. The supported way to access your originals is to use the File -> Export command. Set the Kind to Original.
This User Tip
has details of the options in the Export dialogue.
Also: as an Apple Forum user tip: Don't be too critical of the Apple products or your post will be deleted.
2. I think you'll find the post was deleted because other users complained about it. Apple don't read every post
3. You made no criticism of Apple. You ranted and raved and used foul language but made no criticism of Apple. All your problems were due to you not understanding the application, not knowing how to use it, and not knowing how not to use it as you preferred. None of that was Apple's fault. There are lots of posts critical of Apple and Apple products on these forums.

gee - your post was abusive - full of profanity and generally obnoxios and was so over the top that I assumed you were under the influnce of something
When you ask a civil, revelant question in a civil way you get help and not problems - come in cussing like a carzy drunk and you are likely to have posts deleted and you can even get banned
Your post most certainly was not deleted because you ask a question or because you critizied Apple - it was because it was simply crazy and abusive
You answer to getting access to the originals is the wrong answer and no one should follow it - it endangers yoru entire iPhoto library
And note that you came here because yhou had been really stupid and had deleted the iphoto application in a fit of rage so you could not do anything
the correct answer to getting the otiginals is to select the photos and export (file menu ==> export) with kind = original - in your case you had to reinstall the iPhoto Application first since you had trashed it
