I saw that post, it's very much fanboy behaviour; Apple vs Android pissing matches are the same. I suppose everything is, hell, politicians and political commentators certainly are. If you don't take one extreme or the other, your argument is somehow less valid, which seems very much back-to-front in my book. When did extremism become not just desired, but demanded?

I made a bit of an ass of myself on here a few months back after getting fed up with this and launching into a sarcasm and comic exaggeration laced tirade - against the wrong people. I still don't believe Popcap were as widely popular as people insisted but they clearly weren't as unpopular as I thought!

I took the criticism on board and I've been more careful with what I post since. Also, I learned not to use comic exaggeration to highlight hyperbole because it came across as hyperbole on my part; either it doesn't translate via text or doesn't register as satire to them.
