The Pebble Faithful Are Getting Bent Out of Shape

Reviews are out for the Pebble Time, and Pebble diehards at /r/pebble are going nuts over some of them. This thread in particular has drawn quite a bit of ire. I find it fascinating how much weight people put on review scores. Some suggested that The Verge was too afraid to give the Pebble Time a better score than "that other thing...." (the Apple Watch). They also spent some time mocking David Pierce's review for Wired having the gall to say he does't like it as much as the Apple Watch. The gal! I've started replying to half-a-dozen of these replies, but ended up deleting them. Why poke the bear?

This whole thing makes me doubly glad that I don't have a numbering system tied to my reviews. You can disagree with me (and many have), but you have to read what I have to say in order to know my position.
