Reading your post again isn't going to get a new response... I didn't say you did/said any of those things. I made a reply based on my observations/thoughts on the subject. Maybe you should read mine again?
The basic concept of my response.. is that in a consumer market there is no benefit to defending a major corporation. Unless you work for them or you own stock... What would make sense in general from a society view, is that consumers would want 2 or more strong competitors in a market. So that there would be a drive for better products and prices that are more consumer friendly in order to compete.
Obviously this isn't something new.. and I've personally often wondered what motivates some of these people. You can't really know when they are just an /anon person on the web. In some situations it makes sense (like say a sports fan), but cheering for your favorite sports team is much different then making sure your next upgrade cost you more.
