So, yeah -- if anyone needs context for this, see https://plus.google.com/u/0/+JRRaphael/posts/Jy3BXDGznR4
I just went through and deleted the truly over-the-top and hateful comments from overnight -- quite a lot of them -- and blocked those who were responsible for them. It was way, way worse before I did that. Such emotional, mean-spirited, hate-filled rage -- about what type of electronic devices someone does or doesn't prefer?! Unbelievable. Life's too short, and I certainly don't want to waste my time wading through that crap or playing hall monitor throughout the day. That's
the kind of nonsense I was referring to in this post -- not merely thinking that you tend to like a certain manufacturer's products or appreciate how a company approaches Android (which, of course, there's absolutely nothing wrong with). Some people just need to step back and realize this isn't life and death we're talking about, nor is it war, politics, or even religion. It's technology. Something that's supposed to be fun and interesting, not a source of emotion-laden strife and virtual gang violence.
And with that, I'll close the door on this discussion. Thanks for chiming in, everyone. Onward and upward!
