Fair enough, I meant no insult in my use of "purity". I often make
arguments related to design purity and the benefits of such. I guess I
find comments like "moronization" and "bozoware" a bit more offensive
and immature. 

AR's true intentions shine through if you visit his Web page via IE:
"SAY NO TO MICROSOFT!" or the following recent sig: "The day Microsoft
makes something that doesn't suck is probably the day they start making
vacuum cleaners...". So I don't think it's unfair to question his
attacks anytime someone from (or associated with) MS replies to one of
his posts.
