Facts + Opinions
First, I'd like to mention that I'm not a frequent poster, I'm more of a reader. Although I have posted quite a lot today, but that's because the fucking fire alarm was going off all night and I'm a bit of an insomniac. Anyway, the following rant, although short, concerns people being unable to decipher fact and opinion...
Honestly, do people not understand the difference between fact and opinion? One of the most frustrating things is when people state their opinion and regard it as fact. What is especially annoying is when people make claims and provide no evidence to validate them. This detriments discussion and debate. It becomes an argument, perhaps a personal argument. When someone treats their opinion as fact, and another disagrees with them, its likely they will react that its a personal insult against them, thus they are more likely to resort to personal insults to defend their viewpoint. This is the distinction between adults and children. Debates and discussion are for adults; arguments are for children. It seems like an injection of intelligence needs to be administered to the wrestling community.
