I disagree about the writer is a writer is a writer. That is just silly to assume that because of a job, that is how you act at all times. I work a full time job as a manager in retail. My job is to be friendly to people all day and make our place a nice place to shop. Do you think that just because it is a habit of mind, at work, that I spend all day being nice to everyone and taking care of everyones issues? Not at all. I mean, look at you here. Your job here is a moderator, and you were trying to insult me by writing how disappointed you were that I have the ability to write, in an official capacity, differently than I post, in an unofficial capacity.
That is the forums rule you are breaking there. But because I called you out on it I am now breaking this one:
I enjoy coming to this site and posting here, for the most part. It is times like this where I do not find it that enjoyable. Since I do not wish to get banned or find another iOS based site to go to, I will refrain from posting in this thread from here on out. Sorry for everything.
The problem is not stating your opinion confidently; it's calling those who disagree with you dishonest (which is precisely what you did). That makes my jab of putting the word "writer" in scare quotes (a cheap shot, I will admit) seem pretty minor. But perhaps I'm taking your rhetoric a little too serious.
You are free to post here as much as you want. You are not going to get banned for stating an opinion. But you can expect that those who disagree with you will post too. Even moderators.
