Intent on the part of the user of the term, and how it is received by the 
individual addressed are going to be the determining factors as to whether, 
or not the usage is derogatory.When I see Appleseed used, my first thought is 
that it is intended to be derogatory, and provocative.

Appleseed is not a term used by users of Apple products to describe 
themselves. It is a term used by non-Apple users to label Apple users. While 
you might not have intended your usage to be derogatory, you have used it to 
segregate/differentiate yourself from Apple users, and to establish your 
standing as somebody who uses a different OS (...and I know you own and use 
an iphone).If I were you I would stop calling your friends Appleseeds 
regardless of how good APPL has been for you.

In the case of Mayayana, and his anti-Apple bias, his usage of Appleseed is 
undoubtably, and intentionally derogatory. He has a similar anti-Adobe bias.
