The easiest way to refute someone else’s point is to say that they are bias and therefore, their point is screwed and moot. It’s a variation of the poisoning the well fallacy. I was actually labeled a mac fanboy today and it really made me think about what I posted. It’s very difficult to stay in the middle ground. What I mean by middle ground is by stating a fact or opinion in a way that makes you seem balanced. This is a must.
I think of myself agnostic when it comes to technology. I do my best to be balanced. Using the best tool for the job is half the battle. Achieving the task is the other half. I like to think that I excel at both.
