We shall have to agree to disagree. It's precisely because the remarks are obviously not intended to be a reflection on human nature in general, but on a specific group of identifiable people, that they become potentially actionable; the more especially since the supposed bias was attributed to the receipt of favours. Courts are not generally disposed to accept philosophical excuses for making actionable statements. You may also like to consider the possibility that some reviewers might well be biased AGAINST a product; I might have to confess to that bias if pressed... I would also have to take issue with the notion that every single person on the planet is guilty of bias in every set of circumstances.
Steven's comments were simply ill-chosen, and certainly not thought through. Don't you feel that there's too much of that about on the internet ?
