Not all the time, but I think that's what Cosmo is commenting about.
I wouldn't say it's unbiased either. I'm more likely to stand on the sidelines in a political tiff if it's a liberal and I'm more likely to stand on the sidelines during any tiff if the person taking the heat is (a) popular here, (b) usually someone who dishes it out, or (c) not receiving the pile on treatment (i.e. in a fair fight).

Oh, and politically correct over-reach is a pet peeve of mine so I'm more likely to defend someone that I think is being attacked on that basis.

I'm sure there are other biases at work as well, but those are some big ones. And in most cases, I like the people here even if I'm at odds with some of them at times. I can't think of anyone I really despise, although there might be a couple. For example, I like ThatGuy even though he's way over the top and I like loneiguana even though his posting schtick is retarded liberal.
