    "iTards" as your MR handle, on a Mac fan site?

    I already see how this will end, but have fun during your stay.

    Oh yeah, and those "fanatics", are actually right.

    +1. This forum used to have a wide range of people with a wide range of opinions. Increasingly it's being filled with fanboys and haters posting fabricated "facts", both are in refusal to accept that product X may just be better/more popular than their beloved product Y.

    I prefer to take the middle of the road approach. I'll call out BS on both sides. I wish the silent moderate majority would speak up more often. (Are we still talking fanboys versus trolls here?)

    Yes and fanboy's blind following of a billion dollar corporation is tiring especially when they throw out logic and reality to justify various decisions/products of apple. Still fanboy posts are a lot less caustic and generally are less inflammatory then trolls.

    Respectfully, I have to disagree. I feel the population density of MR fanboys far outweigh the occasional troll. The real problem IMHO, is that the trolls are rightfully schooled, while many of the fanboys get a free ride (or even high five'd).

    I have to chime with Roadbloc's sentiments of "both are in refusal to accept that product X may just be better/more popular than their beloved product Y."
