I do recall using FOSSPatents as a source for some point I was making. I've probably done so more than once. I've also used 9to5Mac, Apple's own site and DED himself. It doesn't mean that I'm pro-any-of-them. They all have their value and good points. FOSS is the only one of the group that would pretend to be objective/unbiased. Perfectly proper to point out that Florian Mueller shouldn't be taken at face value.
With that said, I gave FOSSPatents some props just a couple days ago in an exchange with Mel. Florian often offers information lacking from other sources, and I read him several times a week. But I don't depend on him for a fair unbiased opinion, nor complete unblemished reporting of the facts.
I'm also not against Apple. What seems to make you and some others uncomfortable is pointing out factual errors, misstatements, logical fallacies, and misreporting. Others take issue with the fact I hold my ground calmly and logically, yet can admit an error when presented with evidence. If you go thru all 1600+ posts I've made you'll be hard pressed to find a handful that are Apple specific complaints, unless you consider anything less than a rah-rah-rah to be an attack. In fact you'll find more kudos than complaints. I'm far from an Apple hater.There's Apple fanatics here who have complained about Apple and/or their policies much more often and vocally than I have. What I will point out is common misconceptions, flawed talking points, rushes to judgement, or ignorance of the facts. Surely the quest for knowledge isn't anti-Apple.
