Editorial Yesterday, a story made its rounds across the internet. It was picked up by many large news websites, and I'm sure it will be quoted by people until eternity. It was published by a large website, looked all fancy, it had multiple pages - it looked like it was really something. However, anyone with even the remotest bit of knowledge knows that the article was a collection of complete and utter bogus.

You would give up the entertainment value of watching all the Maclots and Freetards


Sorry, but you lost all credibility with this lame namecalling.

Actually, I thought "freetards" was rather funny. Even though he may well be including me in that category.

I think that both bkb and the spiderman have reasonable points. There is a difference between loving one's own platform and hating other platforms or the companies which produce them. I think it is far more productive, and pleasant, to stick as much as possible to the promoting one's own platform part and avoiding the hating part as much as possible.

However... spiderman's observation that these seemingly endless Windows 7 speculation articles and editorials might best be put on Page 2 is very reasonable, and I agree with it.

Of course, but using name-calling is usually not a good way of avoiding the hating. Especially not when the original post was not very inflammatory to begin with.
