Forgiven, we all get like this sometimes.
However, I am personally not bothered about the lack of a removable battery or an SD card. I've never used the SD Card slot on my S2 and I only think i've removed the battery maybe twice in the 18 months i've had it, and that was very near the beginning before I realised what a PITA it was for me to do so. I now carry a power pack to charge both my phones instead.
It's a bit glib of you to say that because you don't like the fact it doesn't have an SD card slot or a removable battery that you want others to avoid it though. We all have different requirements from a phone.
I haven't bought one yet but I am leaning heavily towards it instead of the S4. If and when I do purchase an HTC One, I will certainly tell HTC what I think of the phone. I'd like to think that it will be a glowing report without mentioning either of the issues above.
