Default Re: Can An Opinion Be Wrong???

There's some sort of marriage/dispute between objective observation and individual subjectivity at the heart of all criticism, no matter where its coming from. Much of the internet thrives on that duality. The old adage that everyone has the right to an opinion I think should be modified to say that everyone has the right to an educated opinion, which is to say an opinion that is intelligent and well reasoned. To be able to amply convey why you like something rather than just saying that you like it. Opinions that are unreasonable and cannot recognize at least some objectivity are not of much value to anyone.

You're gonna carry that weight.
