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).

You also make no effort to show ANY respect to any opposing opinions, you frequently denigrate other journalists and bloggers, and you make personal attacks against your readers in response to perfectly legitimate comments.


This is, of course, provably nonsense.

Except you've just proven that guy right in six words with your childishly snippy response. Could you really not have thought of a better way of phrasing that?

Too late. The tone is set by the first sentence and the comment doesn't recover from it. If you think you have an intelligent point then you have to write with intelligence - don't give in to the urge to bicker with your readers.
