Apple "All of those questions, messages, and stern commands that people have been whispering to Siri are stored on Apple servers for up to two years, Wired can now report. Yesterday, we raised concerns about some fuzzy disclosures in Siri's privacy policy. After our story ran, Apple spokeswoman Trudy Muller called to explain Apple's policy, something privacy advocates have asking for." Apple cares about your privacy.

Typical. You do not address what he wrote before his own qualification of his own rudeness. That your comment would be valid criticism if you also said the same thing about others being rude. But if the person who is being rude used it to defend Apple then suddenly it is not so bad to being rude. You just showing how hypocritical you are.

I did not address curio as he was being rude to me as well, making any conversation pointless.

My original rudeness spotting had to do with a reply to Tony. It was this reply I was objecting to as it seemed like yet another mindless Tony Swash bashing. I don´t see why if I object to a Swash Bash I should suddenly become the moral police of this site.

Jared only directed one insult against another site member, but this was Thom who doesn´t mind insulting his own readers so he might even like it and if he doesn´t he shouldn´t do it either. I don´t see Tony Swash handing out insults and you´re not likely to see me do so either.

Directly? Of course not, he clearly doesn't have the spine for insulting anyone directly. But he's the master of indirect insults via thinly-veiled, weaselly passive-aggression. And when I say "thinly-veiled", I mean that he basically just uses the term "people who" instead of "you" - even though it's always painfully obvious who the insult is directed at.

Here's an example of an insult that has been "Swashed":

"I find it curious that the only people who defend Tony tend to also be prolific Apple defenders."

And here's how that same insult would be phrased by someone who possessed a pair of balls:

"The only reason you're defending Tony is out of a feeling solidarity for your fellow fanboy."

Or for a few hundred specific examples:
