I rarely apologize for companies. It's how it's viewed, but usually people are saying things like "they're trying to rape our unborn children!" and I try to explain how these decisions are made.

Rarely do people sit in a conference room and say "how can we fuck over our users?"

This, though, seems to be the result of just that.

I've seen this attitude here so many times, if you're not completely against something (typically MS or EA) then you must be completely in favour of it. A couple of times in the last 24 hours I've seen Eirikrautha explicitly exhibit this, by making accusations against you which show she/he thinks in nothing but extremes.

I complained about it in another thread.
For how some view console users, they're very quick to act like diehard Xbox or PS fanboys that assume anyone saying anything not glowing in praise for their console of choice must be a huge fan of the other.

I get why some here see me as an apologist, but it usually means they're not reading what I say closely. Maybe my arguments just don't translate to text. I just try to fight hyperbole more than anything. You can have rational discussions about how something sucks or why something sucks without launching into massive amounts of FUD. But I guess that's not how the internet works.

Fortunately this board has tons of excellent posters, and even most of the ones that repeatedly launch into hyperbole have their strong posts, in many cases more often than not.
