OK, today's hatred: smarmy, disclaimer-style comments. The main one I hear that just makes me twitch is one that claims that such-and-such a company is "a family company." What the Hell is that supposed to mean? Do you really expect me to believe that everyone in the company is part of your family, and always has been? Of course not, and that's not what you're saying.

No, you're trying to make some kind of statement about your values...and frankly, who the fuck cares? That makes you an ass, smarting off from some kind of supposed moral high ground. Meanwhile, what you're REALLY saying is that you are a stuck-up, uber-conservative bunch of loonies. Lemme tell ya, when you make a product, what I care about is whether you make a quality product, not your opinion on "family values."
