You can defend Purism or claim that PureOS is separate from Purism;
either way, I have no problem with PureOS at this point. But it's a bit
self-contradictory to try to defend Purism (and even use terms like "we"
and "our" in relation to it) and yet say that complaints about Purism
have nothing to do with PureOS.

Regarding Purism and trust, I would suggest to Todd that he would regain
trust a lot faster if the Purism website didn't have so many
over-inflated propaganda articles. I understand that Purism is a
for-profit company and some propaganda is to be expected, but this list
of pages is just a bit absurd:

Personally, I'm perfectly fine at this point with viewing Purism as a
company with roughly the same standards as Think Penguin, and I would
buy a product from them if it appealed to me the best out of all
possible products in my price range. But not everyone is ready to accept
Purism even that way, and what you're saying about Purism critics on
this list isn't helping toward that end. As has already been said, you
can easily destroy trust at the drop of a hat, but you can't just gain
trust at a whim; it takes continual demonstration of trustworthiness
over time through consistently good actions.
