I am actually in the same camp -- I'm with Verizon for exactly two reasons, AND their Droid branding has always been a turn-off. You could say I bought this phone despite it being a Droid;. I bought it on spec.
So I >a little bit< understand the disrespect, but expect it more from the user community and not a publication I admire and browse daily for their quality tech journalism. In fact, the Maxx is getting good vibes in the XDA forums, the last place I'd expect given Motorola bootloader track record.
