No need to worry, I've modded your comment(s) up.

Side note; anyone who knows me, knows I am cynical; whilst we have people here to jump around, I've always been one of being a realist when it comes to a product.

Yes, a product has good points (all do) but the concern should be on the parts which aren't good, that need to be addressed. To simply ignore the deficiencies you end up with a giant reality distortion field equal to that of the Steve Jobs and his on stage evangelical like marketing hype feasts.

Case in point, the department I managed at my last job was the fastest growing in New Zealand for that year - my reaction was, "there are some issues we still need to work on" and headed off back to work. Whilst some might like to bath in the after glow of success, I'd sooner get back to improving things.

Except of course the 11,000 bugs fixed just for the Firefox 3 Beta 1 release. ;)
