Now resorting to editing this reply in Notes; will cut and paste this text into the Apple webform after I finish.)
Perhaps he is inferring from the lack of mass rebellion in the media and on Apple's support forums that the problem as you describe it probably is not wide spread. Considering Apple has sold hundreds of millions of devices capable of running Mobile Safari, perhaps he is just providing a guestimate as to how many people are not effected.
Further, your position can be viewed in the inverse and is not logically sound. If he claims he doesn't have any problems using mobile Safari, why should he assume his experience is not the norm as you are doing? If you are claiming to have a perfectly normal Apple mobile device, aren't you also implying the opposite of what he is claiming? Namely, that a large percentage of devices are effected by the issue.
I think it also fair to assume Apple employees use Mobile Safari frequently to visit some of your favorite sites. If they were having problems on the scale you comport to have, it seems reasonable that perhaps they would fix the problems.
We could take a poll. I have an iPhone 5, and an iPad Mini Air. I won't say I never have had a problem surfing the web with Mobile Safari, but I certainly can't remember the last time I had any issues. I think Mobile Safari is pretty solid.
I have never surfed the web using any browser without some issue popping up eventually. I have had problems occasionally while commenting on Appleinsider using Safari on my Mac or Firefox on my work computer. Porn sites are bad as well.
