“Opinions are like assholes. Everybody’s got one.”

You have an opinion and you are entitled to it. BUT do you have the right to shove it down my throat? No, you don’t.

That’s the beauty about opinions – that’s all they are. Facts they are not!

However, the problem is that sometimes, opinions get conflated with emotions (usually envy or depression leading to anger) and then degrade into offensive personal attacks.

And of course, the apparent facelessness of social media exacerbates the lack of restraint when folks online share their opinions.

What I would love to see is that not only are opinions shared but they need to be backed by logical justification and evidence. Mere assertions are not enough!

Then perhaps, social media can finally live up to its description.

still there’s more
