I've been on Neowin for 11 years. I know what the general user base is like -- they'll call Microsoft out if they disagree with them. I don't agree with your categorization of Neowin users even remotely. Our users have no problem calling out Microsoft on any issue they disagree with.
Some of us have been here for almost 10 years - I think we've learned a thing or two about the users here and what is accepted and what isn't.
If Microsoft does something "evil", it's fine. If Apple or Google does something, it's massive flame war to the n'th.
No disrespect, but you guys aren't even explaining your viewpoint, you're just arguing the hypothetical situation of "if the sides were reversed." It's a straw man, basically.
