The number of personal attacks at AI seems to be competing with actual posts debating the issues. Surely, if you believe that posters are trolling, you can alert the mods and have those people warned and banned.
But this "attack the poster, not his argument" mentality hints strongly at the attacker's inability to deliver a cogent argument. Personal abuse is not an alternative to reason.
And just in case I'm accused of whining, I understand the frustration that some here feel, seeing a lot of recent criticism of Apple and some product issues. It's tempting to put it down to a co-ordinated troll attack, but the more reasonable explanation is that there's a rare mis-step by Apple and people want to express their concern and disappointment.
This is an appropriate forum for that expression. At least it's in the family, and not happening on a more general tech site that would have a wider audience.
In my opinion, if you're resorting to personal attack, you're admitting that you're intellectually bankrupt. Let's keep it civil huh folks?
