I fully understand why brand bashing is against the rules. Bashing almost anything can do nothing but cause hostility in others.
The question is, where is the line drawn from constructive criticism, candid opinions, and bashing?
Which of these lines would break the forum rules (using Mac/Windows as a popular example, not stating an actual opinion, though that should be obvious in this context):
1 - I hate Macs.
2 - I really don't care for Macs.
3 - Macs are utter garbage and are shameful compared to the performance a good PC gets.
4 - Macs used to be pretty good for art development, but are mostly useless these days.
5 - For the cost and performance, Macs are a huge waste of money.
6 - When a Mac gets old, you can't upgrade it, it's just a paperweight by then.
7 - For the less money, you can get more performance getting a PC.
8 - Use windows if you love viruses.
9 - At least I don't have to deal with crashing every 5 minutes with a Mac.
10 - Windows isn't any better, it just has the masses after it.
The line on what is bashing is a bit vague to me, based on infractions I've seen. Which of those lines are violations?
