I notice, around here, that if a person doesn't like the answer given they tend to accuse the commenter of being judgmental, like it's a bad thing. Yet asking for an opinion is a good thing. Based on the definitions below, if a person has passed judgment on something it means that they have enough knowledge and experience to have a credible answer. It's the opinion that calls for speculation based on assumed information.
a belief or judgment that rests on grounds insufficient to produce complete certainty.
the ability to judge, make a decision, or form an opinion objectively, authoritatively, and wisely, esp. in matters affecting action; good sense; discretion: a man of sound judgment.
Also, isn't just a little hypocritical to complain that someone is being judgmental (opinionated) and then be judgmental (opinionated) about their answer? This site is a treasure trove of dichotomy. <<< My Opinion
