OSNews, Generic OSes Considering the polarising topic of software patents and related IP litigation is coming up a lot lately, I felt the need to write a few words on this thing called 'bias'. This word is being thrown around a lot, but I get the feeling many people are unclear as to what, exactly, it means. Because contrary to popular opinion, there's nothing wrong with being being biased. In fact, there's no such thing as unbiased blogging (or even unbiased journalism).

What? Saying something is provably nonsense, only to then expand on it is now considered a bad thing?

I'm sorry, but that doesn't make any sense.


It's the confrontational tone that's the bad thing. If you think something is "provable nonsense" then prove it, or better still rise above the comment by ignoring it (maybe someone else will prove it in your defence). Or write your comment without that first sentence - which I'm sure would have occurred to you if you read over the comment before posting.
