I would think that people who visit, and especially those who join an enthusiast site will expect to see, and smile upon those who have unbridled enthusiasm for the area in which the site specializes in.
I don't understand why that would be upsetting. It should be expected. What would be bad would be those people going to a competitors site, or a site that serves an opposite point of view, and strongly, and continuously expressing their opinions there.
We get those people coming here, and it's nasty. That's much worse.
A site like this mainly serves people who are mostly content with, or enthusiastic about Apple and its products. That's how it should be.
If that's too much to ask of some people, then they should be going to a more neutral site, or a site that reflects their interests, instead of bothering the people here. Pretending to be an Apple user, and then constantly digging at everything Apple does, and the people who like what Apple does, is just a smokescreen for them.
It's more than annoying.
Having been a member for years, and having visited this site for years before that, before I had the time to post (before I retired), I can say that almost everyone here, no matter how fond of Apple they may be, and that includes myself, has criticized them one time or another.
We aren't all zombies as the small number of Apple critics who come here seem to be. I suppose I agree with what Apple has done about 75% of the time, and disagree the rest. If I felt less inclined to think what they do is good most of the time, I wouldn't be an Apple user to the extent I am. That just makes sense.
I suggest that if there is a couple of people who are so enthusiastic that you can't take it, just ignore them. At least they fit in with the theme here.
It's harder to ignore the anti-Apple robots that are here because they stand out, as they intend to. You should know the old Japanese expression, "The nail that stands up gets hammered down." It's not something original here.
