Stop taking software so seriously. It was just an innocent joke.

Up. Lighten. You figure it out.


C'mon, if you have to work that hard to justify leaving such a statement in an article, you've got an agenda or an axe to grind. The thought process would resemble, "Okay, Konqueror really twists my happy knobs and I vastly prefer KDE over Gnome, but if I throw this in there even as an editorial aside, my bias will be evident and I'll lose the credibility issue... I know! I'll bracket it in an obvious bold JOKE warning! That way, I get to state my bias, and anyone who "doesn't get it" will be called out as a humorless idiot!"

It should have been left out, or owned up to as bias. As is, it's a passive-aggressive coward's move.
