Confrontation can be a symptom of bias, but it is not the definition of bias. Trust me... I have dealt with bias in many different applications in the past, and bias is not identical to confrontationality. Bias is often the cause of confrontation, though. Bluecoyote was, at the very least, overly zealous in his efforts, but then again I was nearly as zealous in my opposition once. Confrontation is sometimes necessary when one is zealously defending the truth, but that kind of confrontation ought to be more reasonable and civilized if the defender of truth actually understands their place.

Positive reception and reviews do not always make a great phone. It depends on many factors, including the needs and perception of the user. As a developer, if Bluecoyote tells me that Apple's ecosystem is easier to work within than Google's, then I trust his judgement... perhaps he gets very vehement about it, but what coach doesn't yell at the team member who isn't performing up to standards... the coach only yells at you if he thinks he can help you to do better; the coach doesn't bother to yell at those who are too far gone, but just quietly cuts them from the team instead.

I cannot cast the first stone at Bluecoyote, either, as I have done similarly in my own way in the past... and I refuse to be casting stones when I know that I live in the very thinnest of candy-shells among glass houses.
