  • LOL! Well, they closed the post before I could post this...but I'm betting it's related to the other definition I found...

    Function: noun
    : the feeling of being persecuted especially without basis in reality

  • I think opinions are like @##holes, everyone has one and everone's is different.
    I don't get it either.

  • Notice the key word in that definition is 'reality'...something so many people seem to NOT be living in these days...

  • LOL I totally agree, but I also hate when someone does give a different opinion and THEY get mad, LOL! Can't we all just state our opinions and not have to resort to name calling and childish acts?! LOL I guess not!!!

  • the only thing about post in general that bother me is when someone doesn't answer the question but only leaves a bunch of hateful stuff regarding the poster or a group the poster identifies with. objectivity is not a probelm, i enjoy contrasting answers that give me something to think about even if I am already strongly for/agaisnt something. makes me think they couldn't come up with an intelligent factual answer or at least a grown up opinion,  so they resorted to personal attacks, that is just annoying to read through.

  • Some questions are asked for advise, others are posted for debates. OP's and responders need to understand the difference.

  • The way I see it.. People are entitled to an opinion. But if you post your opinion, be prepared to get questions... It's dialogue. Some people take things too personally and fail to see this isn't a bunch of people sitting in a room talking. This is the internet, and each person reads the question with a different level of logic/emotion. In the Political section of CM, take the emtion out of it. Be free to post your opinion, and be willing to stand behind it.

  • Well, there is a blaring example of irony. You make a post about freedom of speech and then you don't allow freedom of speech. It is almost so ironical that it is a parodox!
