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.

Oh, please. If there is any situation where one thing is good for consumers, and one thing is good for companies, you are always in here arguing on behalf of the companies. Every time. Maybe you just like to play devil's advocate, who knows? But this site is about consumers. It is about what we want from companies. So of course our posts are going to be pro-consumer. And as it's primarily a PC gamer site, of course our posts are going to be biased towards PC gaming.

You seem to have made it your personal mission to take the side of the companies in every debate. Sure, I suppose it's nice to have both sides represented, but don't try and act all innocent when you get called out on it.

I'm rarely arguing 100% in favor of the corporations. Typically I'm just explaining that they're not evil.

The average user here tends to be pretty smart, but there is usually a complete misunderstanding over why companies do things. I try to repeatedly point out I'm not telling them to accept things, just understand why they happen. They can still be angry, but be angry at the right thing.
