"Also I think it should be pretty obvious looking at this thread that anyone who doesn't follow along with the OSNews mindshare (Apple bad, Android good, patents bad) gets moderated down, someone who agrees gets moderated up...The sooner the average OSNews poster accepts this, the sooner they may be able to start making sense of what's going on."
So what if many of us are against software patents?
You yourself said "Accepting that something is true and agreeing with it are different". So why is it that you claim stereotypical osnews posters are unable to make sense of what's going on instead of merely disagree with what's going on?
I didn't realize the moding was the basis for your claims that osnews posters are uninformed.
I'm convinced some people are voting using phantom accounts. I too have seen perfectly sensible posts less provocative than yours be moded down while trolls are moded up. Considering active posters are blocked from voting, I wouldn't put much weight in their accuracy.
I think discussing comment moding has been considered taboo in the past so I won't mention it further.
