Yes, there certainly is:

Perhaps Dumbo would like to explain how one can make a comparison with
"other operating systems" without *discussing* those other operating
systems, and the people and companies behind them. And since he likes
to continually reminds us that Windows has such a "huge" market share,
does it not make sense that the "other operating system" being
discussed is invariably Windows?

Windows is the problem; Linux is the solution - sounds like a good
basis for advocacy to me, and AFAICT that is the crux of Roy's posts.

It's certainly more relevant than an Astroturfing MS apologist making
personal attacks.
