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).

Fanatic can have a fairly negative connotation, namely that you disregard reason in support of something. Perhaps you were not aware of this common interpretation of the term?

So no, I'm afraid fanatic can very very easily be a negative label.
