... have a look at the comments on this review of Siri vs. Google Voice on Jelly Bean.

No way comments like these would be allowed on Neowin, now, would they?
Standards and all that. Good thing too.

These make the trolls on Neowin look like choirboys.

Just about any place on the internet, where comments can be posted, you will see replies like this! It's not a forum, Neowin is a "technical" forum, etiquette and protocol is part and parcel of a site like this, supposedly!

Ha some of those comments are quite funny.

Also I've seem simliar comments posted in threads on this forum as well. Especially in any of the threads that discuss Android and iOS in the same thread.

If I owned that site I'd be embarrassed if that were the calibre of the people who visit..

Had to stop reading very quickly. I'm over my daily dosage in reading stupid comments. Any more and I might lose it. :unsure:

Is this an invitation to come up with worse stuff than I do now? :(

Apple is not dead...yet. If they keep on going like this they will be, have you given a thought why haven't they went against Nokia yet? Like it ain't bad enough for them that they are messing with Samsung.

Comments on the internet are on part with those on the walls of public restrooms..

I don't even read my own ones for that reason :)

The comments on the PCMag article remind me of the Neowin Gamers' Hangout during the height of the console wars to be honest.

Always amazes me how many keyboard warriors there are who think they are experts on any subject.

Your comments are mostly spot on, in my opinion.
It's just that you do not suffer fools gladly, i.e. I get the feeling that you don't have much of a sense of humour.
I say this with all respect.
