    When the iPhone came out everything was new to a lot of people. People who weren't already smartphone users migrated. iOS was an operating system that basically had training wheels for those users. By the time iOS 7 came, Apple took the training wheels off because they had already formed a generation of users who knew how to work with the OS unconsciously.

    Apple trusts that users will get the hang of different gestures, features, and things of that nature.

    As far as the Ned Flanders' of this thread go, nobody is really invalidating the OP's opinion. It's just a lot of not so understandable drivel that comes thread after thread that we are criticizing.
    That made me LOL. Back on crackberry I used Ned Flanders as my avatar as I found I got bashed less for owning the persona.

    I have suggested this before, just let the threads die instead of debating them.

    As far as this topic: I know from my work that many users only use very basic functions and easily get frustrated by many aspects of the phone. There are many reasons for this. Naming, non obvious gestures, more then one way to do the same thing and many more.

    I have personally mapped out settings and what functions they perform. It is a massive list. They are not always clearly organized and named. Apple knows there are confused users. That's why they have perpetual scheduled help sessions at the stores.

    While I personally will admit his way of posting can seem a little juvenile, he does make valid points without resulting to arrogant remarks. Unlike many of the elite on here. Besides, I don't remember you winning the "poster of the year" award. Hypocritical much?

    It appears that our collective chew toy has been banned. Who will make us spew our drinks on our screens with every post, now?

    Just a little?

    I fail to see the hypocrisy angle you're trying to push here. Just because he makes a couple of valid points doesn't mean most of what he posts isn't junk. That's the point I was getting across.

    And the same can be said of you and any of us for that matter. That is the point I'm trying to get across.

    Seriously though, if he was banned for just making posts like this, iMore has lost some major credibility in my book. They're turning into MacRumors if that is the case.

    The user's ban was first due to an accumulation of infraction points earned by not keeping with the forum's policies.... It was a 3 day ban that has now become permanent in keeping with iMore's policy against creating multiple usernames to circumvent a ban.

    In my experience iMore forums are much less wild west than rumors and others.

    You should hang out over at Crackberry if you think there's no democracy here. You'll be back in 3 seconds.

    I see. I retract my comment then.

    Yes, and I feel bad for comparing the two. Ending up looking like a bit of an insult.

    I do not have a Blackberry device. But thank you for the recommendation.
