You are correct that I don't know why they do it (I have made assumptions) but do it they do...

My guess would be they feel their "base" are canon shooters that delight in any negative conclusion they post on non-canon products.

This is what they conclude about the (much sharper) Canon EF 50mm f1.2 L USM:

"The Canon EF 50 mm f/1.2L USM is a new, expensive lens which belongs to the high-end L series. In the case of such devices I should have had problems with finding anything which could be put into the cons section. Here I didn’t have such problems – the lens had plenty of slip-ups during the test, in some categories losing to devices over ten times cheaper…"

It seems you two are biassed, not Lenstip.

I don't think they are biased against nikon, they are sometimes biased against lenses that don't meet with their test chart based criteria (which has value, but is a pretty simplistic view of the world). Other times they hate lenses and it's not even clear why. This happens across brands.

If you mean that I'm biased against taking Lenstip seriously because of the bombast in conclusions, you are entirely right.
