First, I fully realize this is an internet forum, and that "facts" & opinions must be taken at face value. Hence my continuing suggestion of not taking what I have posted as gospel - with regards my "facts", go look them up. I tend to research things before I let my name get attached to them. On occasion, I make a mistake or a typo. I like to think that when I err, I can acknowledge the error in good spirit, and thank the person who brought it to my attention. It has been my experience though that when a mistake is pointed out, name calling and sniping are insufficient grounds to make an individual recognize/acknowledge his/her error. Usually a rebuttal of substance works.
Second, if someone has an opinion, to me it doesn't make sense to say an opinion is wrong. Opinions are conclusions brought about in an individual's mind as a result of his/her knowledge. Now perhaps the opinion is founded upon knowledge that is faulty. In which case, questionning of the opinion holder may reveal the faulty knowledge, then step one above can be engaged. Subsequently perhaps the opinion will change based on updated knowledge. Isn't that what constitutes a discussion? Isn't that what forums like this are for?
A: "I think this."
B: "Oh, did you know about that?"
A: "You're right! Guess I will revise what I think, and now it's something else." etc etc
I have also observed on this particular forum, as is more common on others, many contributors withhold particulars about their identity and qualifications, as is their right. Others, and many more on this forum than others, have allowed their particulars including name and e-mail address to be viewed in the User Info section provided by the administration. Perhaps some of the bios are fake, but they probably are not. That is one thing that keeps me viewing this particular forum, that and the internationality of the contributors. There is world-wide representation here, and that is fantastic.
